Stripes are one of my all time favorites. I love a good stripe pattern, it has the tendency to class up anything with it's regal nature and touch of boldness. I've been in Charleston, SC for the past week, so bright pops of pink, orange, and green are still in full swing around here. I wanted to pair my love for the stripe with the gorgeousness of these vibrant colors - enjoy!
Summer is officially here! Very hard to contain my excitement, I'm a big fan of the change in seasons, it always offers a fresh perspective for the coming months. Whether it be personal goals, new adventures, a new wardrobe, or just the feeling of "new" 4 times a year - it's a simple thing in life that makes me happy. Since we're officially in the summer solstice, I wanted to brighten up your day with inspiration around one of my favorite new design trends - color blocking. Color blocking can be applied to just about anything in the design world - fashion, home decor, stationery, jewelry - so why not in a modern soiree as well? What a current style to outfit your bridesmaids in or design stationery after? Go with a more subtle approach through your accessories or the floral design you choose - but either way its a lively, bold, and stylish statement on your big day. Enjoy these gorgeous hues and your first weekend of summer!
Christy and I are working on a fun project over the next couple of months, and I've been gathering inspiration to come up with the overall design concept. So here's a sneak peak of what's to come! It's all the way preppy, bright and gingham. Can you guess what we are working on?
I'm often inspired by fabrics. In fact, I pulled my own wedding colors from the fabric on a reupholstered dining chair. Today's source of inspiration is no different. I came across this chair on Pinterest a couple weeks ago and immediately thought, "wedding colors!" More serendipitously is that I recently read Pantone's Spring 2012 color report that forecasts Tangerine Tango as the color of the Season. So, why wait for Spring? Now is as good a time as ever to inspire with bright hues of tangerine, pink and red. Like the chair, I included whites and golds in the palette to neutralize the brights and elevate the overall aesthetic. I feel energized each time I just look at this board. What about you?
Joie de Vivre!
