Of course I love all my mood boards, but this one speaks to me for so many reasons! I am obsessed with the colors, the mixing of slightly bohemian with modern elements. The details seem of-the-moment, but not too trendy. I called this mood board "the new neutrals" because blush, indigo and mustard are the non-color colors. They are the accents that keep close enough to a safe neutral palette, but kick it up a notch.
It's about to be summer and in my book that means colorful wedding. I know many of you aren't as brave with color as I, so this mood board is for you! Classic blush and white, with just a hit of happy turquoise. This beautiful photo in the upper right was my inspiration and I am just in love!
Something about me, my love for Italy has no bounds. I've been twice, to study and for my honeymoon. I took Italian lessons for five years. I drive a Vespa. Basically, I dream of being Italian. This weekend I started watching Master of None on Netflix. The first two episodes of season two are set in Italy and they attend an Italian wedding. Just watching it made me so happy, and of course inspired this week's mood board. You don't have to have a destination wedding in Italy to get that Tuscan feel, though if you do, I'd love to plan it!! Here are five ways to incorporate that Italian feel into your big day.
1. opt for long tables instead of traditional round
2. leafy garlands down the center of the table
3. be sure to serve bread and olive oil
4. candles and cafe lights add the romantic ambiance
5. keep the wine, pasta and formaggio coming and mangia!
Sorry, to my wonderful readers, I have been MIA for some time. If you follow along on instagram, you might know that my dad passed away a few weeks back. This loss is heartbreaking to me. I took some time to be with my family and I am just now catching up. All that said, I have a much happier mood board, inspired by the sunshine filled weekend we had, and the newly launched Sirius Beatles station, I call this one "Here Comes the Sun." As I browsed pinterest for yellow inspiration many of the images looked like they were from around the time I was pinning inspo from my wedding, thus a little dated looking. I think this set paints a happy, sunshine-filled picture while still looking clean and modern, and not a single mason jar in sight!
While normally I lean toward the colorful and whimsical, I love myself a clean palette from time to time. Modern isn't just reserved for a clean loft space, with the right vision, we can make a tropical beach wedding feel clean and modern. To achieve this look, use lots of greenery and keep the palette limited to a few colors, and metals. Bring in modern furniture for a sleek, unexpected look, and give your bridesmaids simple bouquets of protea and large leaves.
