Inspiration: Tropical Destination Glam

4 May

I am a big fan of today’s board, mostly because it’s for a real bride. This friend of mine knew what she wanted, but just needed a little help putting it into a cohesive board. She is having a destination in Puerto Rico with the ceremony on the beach and reception on the pool deck of the resort. She loves turquoise and pink and had an image in her head of a pink orchid against a turquoise ocean. She wanted it to be modern with a little bit of glam. She provided some great centerpiece pics – I love the blue plexi glass with the coral and candles! I thought that square chargers and bold graphic print napkins were a great way to keep the table settings modern. And how cute is the message in a bottle seating card idea? I know this wedding is going to be beautiful and I can’t wait to see pics!

Inspiration: Summer Brights Bridal Shower

30 Mar

When I came across this bridal shower invitation on Invitation Crush I was instantly drawn to the beautiful color combo of orange, teal and chartreuse. It is such a perfect palette for a summer bridal shower.

Since bright on bright has been one of my favorite recent trends, I was inspired to do a little board to show how these colors can come together and create an amazingly cheery mood!

Hi friends. Some very exciting news was brought to my attention yesterday. As you might know, I am a SMP Style Circle member and that’s where I create my inspiration boards. Well, it looks like two I Do Love It boards are serving as the inspiration for upcoming “Inspiration to Reality” shoots on Style Me Pretty!! I am so excited to see these inspirations come to life. And as an added plus, the brilliant Paper Moss is doing the concept and invitation design for “Take a Walk on the Wild Side” so its pretty much guaranteed to be amazing!

Inspiration: Marigold and Purples

10 Mar

I was so inspired by the flower arrangement in this board I just had to do an inspiration board around it. Pairing a tone on tone purple palette with a marigold hue is so striking. It’s feminine but at the same time still makes a bold color statement. I’m so in love!!!

Inspiration: Never Enough Neutrals

16 Feb

There is nothing more calming and beautiful then a palette of mixed neutrals. It can be formal and elegant or casual, cozy and rustic – and works for any season. A mix of ivorys, taupes, nudes and beiges creates an absolutely dreamy look that is wedding perfect! A nude wedding gown and ivory bridemaids dresses is a nice way to switch things up too if you’re looking for something different.

Inspiration: My Modern Clementine

3 Feb

The idea for this board came from my breakfast. I was eating a clementine and it was so bright and orange and delicious. I decided to go more modern with this inspiration – clean lines and very graphic patterns. I thought that black and kelly green really paired well to give it a sophisticated but fun vibe. Orange tulips are sweet but simple and sleek. And of course you must have some Clementine Izze soda!
