Red {Inspiration Board}

Today's post is a little different than most, normally I have a concept or single thought around what I'm going to create before going into it. Today, I got stuck on "red". I got stuck on an image that portrayed the gorgeousness that red can be, without the connotation of Valentines Days, Christmas, or any other holiday. I got stuck on the fact that I really do love red, and how gorgeous a red-inspired palette can be away from all the cliches. So today, there's no concept, simply the gorgeousness of pure red in it's many and varied, sassy, romantic, fiery, and classic styles. More red styles...here, here, here, and here.

Color Blocking {Inspiration Board}

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!

♥ Inspiration Board

If you haven't noticed, we believe love is worth celebrating at Allure.  So it probably comes to no surprise that I'm a big fan of a day that celebrates love, too.  And what is Valentine's Day without a little heart?  I gathered some inspiration for fun and unique ways to incorporate hearts into your wedding day.  Spread the ♥.

Red + Cream = Valentine Dream

Valentine's Day is just around the corner... the perfect excuse to finally create a board inspired by this gorgeous red faux fur coat.  What a great look for a bride, right?! It's been sitting in my files for a while now, just waiting for this lovely opportunity.  Paired with cream, the duo walk a fine line between sultry and sweet.  Aren't we all a bit of both anyway?
