Masquerade Wedding

One of my lovely followers sent me this board she came across. I don't know who made it but I had to share it. I've never been a fan of holiday weddings but if I were to do a Halloween affair, a masquerade ball would be the way to do it. What do y'all think?

And please let me know if you know who made this so I can give credit!

Knoll Textile: Drapery

These gorgeous babies are new from Knoll Textiles. High Note is GREENGUARD certified and may contribute to LEED certification. It comes in 118 inches and is made of Trevira CS polyester. Here are the color choices.

This photo does not do the colors justice. From left to right: Natural, Tea, Allegro, Sonata, Gust
 Here you can see the visibility of Gust. It's so gorgeous.

Purchase from Knoll for $58 per linear yard.

Small Wedding Detail

The idea of a small wedding appeals to me greatly because you can really pay attention to every detail and every guest. And while this idea appeals to me, it is entirely unrealistic. Since my estimated guest list is at approximately 250, I already know it will be larger than this wedding setup.

This wedding reception is set for about 50 people. Everything seems thought out and every detail cared for. Plus, it's orange which is my color of the moment.

My decor style is eclectic. I realize that these images have no flow to them and would look pretty horrible thrown together into one house. But I can't help but love them. I am constantly battling with the style I love the most. I love the smooth lines of a modern home but also the detail in an oriental rug and the intricacy of a carved table. My favorite color is hot pink but I love the subtlety of a moss green. I drool (sorry for the imagery) over walls covered in art yet am amazed with the loveliness of a blank, clean wall. Glass, tweed, lacquer, wool, fur, wood grain, steel, plaster, slate, crystal; materials I love even though I know they do not necessarily go together.

I love my decor style. What kind of style to you love?

Real Wedding Wednesday! Allison & Clint

Allison & Clint
Everything about their wedding was personal and fun. The color scheme of yellow and green, the golf cart get-a-way car, the centerpieces; each detail planned to match the bride and groom's personality. I simply love the fact that in every picture of the Allison, she is cracking up laughing. That's what I want for my wedding day.



Words from the bride...
"My wedding was more than I could have ever dreamed of. All the effort planning was completely worth it. It was simple, elegant, and had many touches that reflected our personalities. Our wedding was the best day of our lives!"

Office Space

Just had to share this great office space I found on Martha Stewart's website. Replace the sewing machine with a sketchpad, a laptop, or great vintage typewriter (if you don't need the space to be quite as functional).
