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!

Succulent Inspiration

I've been coming across so many great uses for succulents lately.  They were a big trend last year, and are showing no signs of going anywhere.  From hanging terrariums to DIY wreaths and place card holders, these ideas go beyond the norm.  Will you be using succulents in your wedding decor?  How?

Preppy Picnic Inspiration Board

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?

Banana + Mint Inspiration Board

Today I wanted to put a twist on traditional color combo, yellow and green.  By muting the usual tones to banana and mint shades, we end up with a look that is a bit retro, a little vintage, yet still a very modern via the unexpected usage, i.e. mint dishware, banana bound books, and a nontraditional bridal gown.  What do you think? Any other color combo's you'd like to see twisted?

Middle: Bedroom, Invitations

Joie de Vivre!
