Inspiration Board: Mint + Gold Glitter

FEB 22

There are two “things” I’ve been obsessed with as of late. Anything glittery gold and anything MINT! I absolutely love the color. In fact, my desk lamp, decor accents and ultimate favorite shade of nail polish is mint. So if I had to get married all over again (to the same man, love you jason), […]read more

Theme Update!

AUG 27

It’s been more than three months already since I finally revealed our wedding theme. You can look back to that post here. If you can believe it, not much has changed! There is still not an exact “theme” so to speak. Although I guess if I had to nail it down right this second, I might […]read more


Latest Obsession: Neon Brights

JAN 25

It’s been a while since I’ve shared one of my “latest obsessions”. And for this one, I kind of struggled with sharing it because I undoubtedly fear this being labeled a post supporting the tacky 1980’s. But honestly, if you infuse neon in small doses without overwhelming the color scheme, it can be fresh, modern […]read more

Inspiration Board: Green, White & Twine

NOV 17

One of my favorite details that I love adding to wedddings is twine. For my own wedding programs, I bound the booklets with black and white Baker’s twine. Here’s an inspiration board that is just too lovely, filled with soft whites, greens, twine and brown Kraft paper. Twine can be used as a detail around […]read more

Inspiration Board: Modern Girly | pink + grey + sparkle

I was actually just describing to my mom that if I were to get married all over again (renewing vows of course!), I would have a pink + grey wedding. So today’s inspiration board was an absolute thrill for me to put together. This has to be it! It’s still modern, but entirely soft and […]read more

Inspiration Board: Emerald Green & Blue

Inspiration Board: Emerald Green & Blue

OCT 13

I’ve never really thought about putting primary colours together. But when I recently browsed through Elie Saab’s 2012 ready-to-wear collection, I was absolutely enamoured with the use of blue + green. {images:} So of course, I wanted to create an inspiration board using these bold primary colours. I decided to tone down the blue […]read more

Inspiration Board: Navy Blue & Blush Pink

OCT 05

Today’s inspiration board is another one of my favorite combinations. Aside from black and dark grey, I like using navy blue in colour palettes because it tends to go well with just about every colour. For this one, I paired navy blue with a soft/blush pink and it’s absolutely delicate but with a masculine touch. […]read more

Colour Palette: Coral, Pinks & Grey

I just love this combination. It totally reminds me of a morning sunrise, in fact I witnessed it around 7 AM today. Isn’t it lovely when paired with soft grey which acts as the grounding neutral? {images: 1. anthropologie 2. minted}read more

Inspiration Board: Purple + Taupe

Inspiration Board: Purple + Taupe

Inspiration Board: Charcoal (or navy) + Gold

AUG 08

I have to admit, the colour gold has been getting a bad rap, especially by me. I’ve always attributed gold to all things vintage & gaudy. But lately, I’ve buying a lot of yellow gold jewelry. Somehow, it just feel like it has more character and glam than ordinary silver/white gold jewelry. In the case […]read more

I love what they did at the New York & Atlantic City premiere parties for HBO’s new drama Boardwalk Empire.

You MUST check out this tangerine wedding reception shown over at Pacific Weddings. I am literally DYING over the first shot and the impact the grid full of flowers and fruits has on the decor.

Inspiration Board: NAVY, Yellow and White

MAR 04

I love the masculinity of this color palette with just enough yellow to lighten the decor. For those who find black a bit strong or for those who aren’t allowed to use black due to cultural reasons, navy blue is a fabulous choice to pair with just about any color. I like to think that […]read more

Inspiration Board: Aqua & Cream

FEB 23

I started this inspiration board after falling in love with the gorgeous aqua colored sweater from j.crew. I love pairing aqua with dark greys and browns, so it was really nice to see it work so well with a smooth cream. To ground the colors, it would be best to add some dark brown to […]read more
