Hello February

Things are really heating up over here! We have so many little, exciting projects coming up this month! We are partnering with a few local businesses on fabulous installs, throwing a fourth birthday party for a special little someone (named Oliver) and prepping for a bridal show at the beautiful Venue3Two at the beginning of March, plus home projects and lots of fun client work!! Wow! I am exhausted just listing it all out! It’s going to be a fun month! Of course I’ll be brining you all along over on Instagram.

This mood board is for my bridal show area, because it’s way more than a booth, at Venue3Two. I get to create a tablescape, a backdrop and a lounge! I am pumped, but I have a lot of planning to do!!

Blue + Blush Tablescapes

From deep moody blues, to happier cabana striped blues, mixed with blush it’s a winning combination. This color combo is one of my favorite tablescape trends. Actually, I wouldn’t even call it a trend, because this combo is timeless. I love how the photos below show how the palette can go from blooming spring, to perfectly summer, to darling painted gourds for fall and rich and velvety for winter. Do you have a go-to table color scheme?

Dream Home 2.0 // Color Palette

A few weeks ago I shared some of my favorite images to inspire my dream home. Now I'm breaking it down a step further and talking about color palette. An overall color palette for your home isn't something the lay person might thinking about when embarking on decorating their home, but it's a really important step that can help you out in the end. People generally gravitate toward a look, but honing in on a style and a color palette that is cohesive and compliments the space is integral to a home that flows and has continuity. Plus, and this is the major point of this post, when you stick to a style and color scheme that is cohesive, it's very easy to swap and move things around when you want to refresh a space. If your bedroom and living room are somewhat cohesive you may be able to pull a bedside table to use as a coffee table or move chairs from the reading nook into the family room. Being diligent about this step means that art can be swapped from room to room and accessories can be styled and restyled again and again. Below is the color palette I am using to inspire my home as well as some pieces that support the look.

Mood Board // Wood & White Kitchen

I've been focusing my mood boards on weddings and parties, but today I decided to mix it up and dream up the most beautiful, big, open kitchen. I imagine white and wood tones, marble back splashes and tiny touches of metallic. Leather accents bring some masculinity to the clean, white canvas. Waterfall countertops and architectural details make for a stunning and modern space. Natural feeling pottery dishweare and greenery add earth, texture and color to make a fully styled, homey kitchen.

Mood Board // Fall for Blush

Fall is my favorite season, but the "traditional" fall color palette leaves something to be desired in my book, especially when it comes to weddings. There are plenty of ways to bring in a prettier, more feminine palette and still add in touches of the season. Here the blush mixes beautifully with the earthier rose color as well as the deeper purples. I love how the natural cotton and wood textures make it feel a little cozier and more seasonal with out screaming fall. And of course some white pumpkins are a touch I always love.
