In today’s editors picks, Ainsley was feeling peachy with this warm palette. Check out some of her favourite picks from Pinterest this week!
This week is going to be peachy keen! I am venue scouting for clients and for The Refinery Magazine, which is taking me outdoors and into the wild wild world of hotels, halls, parks and gardens. What better way to stand out in a sometimes cold late winter environment? Wear some warm peachy colours with accents of navy’s, blues or creams!
Nothing looks better at a wedding than soft neutrals, and peach is a warm colour that can be accented with a wide variety of colours: from Purples to Yellows, Turquoises to Black. Last but not least, who doesn’t love a sweet and peach filled tart for dessert? Would you care for some champagne with that?
Not only is the colour of the year Emerald Green, according to Pantone, but it is also the year of the new Oz movie! I grew up loving all things green, especially since my hair is red and it is easy to pair red heads with the gorgeous greens. They just seem to pop once united!
I had to do a green inspiration as I love love LOVE the colour, and saw that other planners, like myself, were getting on the one stop express air balloon to the world of the green and the oh so mighty Oz!
I logged in to pinterest this morning and I saw this huge beautiful bright pink peony, and I knew what I had to do for today’s inspiration post. MORE PEONIES PLEASE! I can never get enough of big beautiful peonies! They are gorgeous, and if i had the option to make beautiful big and gorgeous peonies an object of my every day life, there would be not one single complaint about it ever. Maybe if I become rich and famous I will request peonies be on my desk everyday. dream on girl, dream on!
Happy New Year everyone! I can already tell that it is going to be an amazing year and I have decided to challenge myself and keep my new years resolution of posting an inspiration image every day for the entire year. Now I know it is going to be difficult to keep this resolution, but I am going to do the very best that I can! I promise!
The very first inspiration of the year is this beautiful Blue and Gold wedding palette filled with sparkles, jewel tones and wonder! I hope you enjoy!
My My MY! I loved working on this inspiration that I did it double the length! I have always been a HUGE lover of teals, blues and china, so when I started putting this inspiration together I nearly died of happiness! Today’s lyrics to follow are ” Eight Maids a Milking”, and can you find where I drew inspiration? Up at the top left is a lovely teal milk jug, and I realized I just had to follow through with teals. Once on pinterest, I quickly found the beautiful blues and teals were such a popular trend in 2012, and because it just started this past year, you know it will continue to be strong in 2013!
My particular favourite of this entire inspiration is that GORGEOUS gown at the bottom! Haute Couture Christian Dior has never looked finer in my eyes! Over all, I hope you learned how fun and easy any wedding can be, but it will always have the touch of elegance. After all…. It is a wedding!
There is always something stunning about a beautiful pure white wedding. Today we got a huge amount of snow in Metro Vancouver, and it has tainted everything white. I can’t seem to tear my eyes away from the beautiful big flakes floating down from the sky and making everything look a whole lot more like Christmas! Today I spun those 7 swans a swimming in to one of my all time favourite ballets: Swan Lake. I believe that white weddings are appropriate all year long, and I am even planning a wedding for a client that is happening next august that is all white!
I hope you enjoy this wonder white dream ballet inspiration, and hope that wherever you are, you too will get a light dusting of snow on December 25th. Just so you can frolic and play!
Gold and Green are two of the easiest pairings in history, especially at this time of year. Throw in a couple of gold rings and what do you get? A wedding! Today I focused on finding subtle greens and golds that work well together as a team and separately, but must work in a wedding environment. I love this rich green, which I believe will be big in 2013, as mint had it’s moment in 2012. An easy way to incorporate gold and green in to your every day life is to pick up a fresh wreath (or make one, which is even better!) and grab some gold glitter, and spray it to give it a christmas-y glow!
Colly Birds are probably the hardest thing to find in a wedding, as most people do not even know what a Colly Bird is! I won’t lie, I too had to do my research and find out exactly what this fine little birds are. They are actually a lovely black bird, and as soon as I saw them the doo doo doo’s of The Beatle’s “Blackbird” started to play in my head. I find that birds are a significant in any wedding, as they are a representative of freedom.
Above is a take on colly birds in a very glam purple and black wedding: really stunning at this time of year!
Well this fellow really seemed to love birds! Two turtle doves, Partridge in a pear tree, and now THREE FRENCH HENS!? This girl must have her hands full of feathers! On to our third day of daily blogging countdowns, and today we seem to have hit a sunny patch, or perhaps a sunny side up kind of inspiration? It may be wet and gloomy now, but come summertime EVERYONE will be dying for the bright beautiful yellow sun.
This graphic inspiration comes back to sunny yellow every time!
Day two of my daily countdown to christmas brings us some sweet love and imagery focusing on Two Turtle Doves! Doves have always been a significant part of weddings throughout history, but only in the last few years have they been used less and less. Nevertheless, the use of birds and the significance of being free and so wonderfully in love ring true, especially at this blessed time of year amoungst friends and family!
Todays inspiration quickly evolved into being very very vintage, with lots of neutrals, pastels and birdies!
