Purple Haze – An Inspiration Board

Purple Haze Inspiration Board

I felt it was time to add another inspiration board to my growing collection.  Shades of purple and silver have been favorites of mine to use for some time now.  It’s a very regal combination, and can be used in every season of the year.  In the spring and summer, you can use lavender and lilac.  In the autumn and winter months, you can use plum, royal purple, eggplant, slate and charcoal grey, and pewter.  Around the Christmas holidays, you can jazz things up with jewel tones and sparkling silver.  The possibilities are endless. 

I see this board as being used for a late summer to mid-winter affair, with colors and textures being rich and plentiful.  A true feast for the senses.  This is where you can indulge in velvets, satins, silks, and lush bouquets of calla lilies, roses and other blooms.  Imagine the walls of your event venue being splashed with washes of red and blue lighting to compliment your tables.  Picture your event with lots of romantic candles everywhere, and the heavenly scent of your flowers in full bloom, atop gleaming silver candleabras, and shimmering tableclothes.  Sound good?  I can’t wait to bring my ideas to life!  Enjoy!

Autumn Nights – An Inspiration Board

Autumn is here!!  I love this time of year!  The warm days, the cool nights, the fall foliage, football games, and snuggly warm fabrics.  I also love the colors: ambers, oranges, deep reds, golds, and plums.  I particularly love reds and plums in different combinations.  They make a wonderful palette for an evening wedding, or perhaps a homecoming or harvest ball.  Or, dare I even suggest it, a romantic setting for a boudoir?  I’ll let your imaginations fly with that suggestion.  In the meantime, picture a winery in the evening, with a blazing fire in the hearth, fabulous food, and good friends and family surrounding you with love and laughter.  Sounds good to me!  Enjoy!!
