If you live in a part of the world that sees four seasons, it’s this time of year many describe as dreary. Daylight hours are shorter, trees are bare and bright colors no longer fill the landscape. But there’s another, much more inspiring way of looking at it. Now’s a time full of opportunity. Now’s when we seem to have more “me” and “we” time, time to put towards trying new things, exploring new ideas and crafting to our heart’s content. Now is the perfect time to cuddle up at home and pour hours and hours into wedding planning, starting with a blank canvas and creating a day as unique as it can possible be. So with crisp cold air around us, and the weekend ahead of us, let’s get inspired by the cool tones that surround us and the lovely and inviting hues that fill up our latest Inspired by Color series mood board, the many “Shades of Grey”.

Happy Monday! And a very Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian blog readers! In honor of today’s heartfelt holiday, and as a bit of encouragement to spend your Monday cozying up with the one you love, for our latest installment in our Plan by Color series we’re featuring the most romantic hue in the color spectrum, ravishing red. To be specific, we’re celebrating the many shades in the red color family, and those that best compliment them. From bold burgundy to golden yellow, and everything in between, we highly recommend using this radiant range to infuse breathtaking beauty into your wedding day.
If I had to pick one word to describe the Fall season it would be ‘comfort’. With its vibrant landscape coupled with cool crisp air, by its sheer nature Fall offers up the invitation to cozy up with a blanket and enjoy the view. It’s warm in its essence, and naturally beautiful. It encourages us to slow down and enjoy our surroundings, take the time to appreciate all the little things. With carefree summer days a thing of the past, Fall grounds us in the most soothing and gentle kind of way. It inspires endless heartwarming creative possibilities and it makes me think there may be no lovelier way to think of love than in the context of Fall. So grab a blanket, your beloved, and enjoy the latest installment in the Inspired by Color series, “Warm My Heart”.
There’s one beautiful thing that links all weddings together. No matter if they’re an indoor or an outdoor event, an extravagant affair of 200 or an intimate gathering of 30, the nuptials of a couple of 20 somethings or a second marriage for a pair of 40 somethings, weddings at the heart of it all are the loveliest of celebrations. They’re a celebration of the quiet love felt between two people that just for a day a select few get to be a part of. Today’s color story is a tribute to all those love celebrations. Taking inspiration from the festivities that will be held across North America this week, with Canada Day tomorrow and The Fourth of July on Friday, we’ve created a patriotic and bold palette that translates into a sophisticated color combo perfect for a profusion of love. Cheers to all you love birds.
Happy St. Patty’s Day! We hope everyone is enjoying this cheerful holiday and taking the time to celebrate the beautiful heritage and culture of the Irish. We’ve got plenty of our own celebratory plans on the go, including the sharing of our newest color story board, Green Stunner. When we realized the next installment of our color inspiration boards fell on St. Patrick’s Day, we could not not feature green. Although we didn’t really need convincing to showcase the gorgeous hue.
The many shades of green can be used to form countless wedding color schemes. And whether used as a strong primary or as a calming accent, green always brings with it a little sense of magic and a lot of elegance. We went bold with our board, using emerald as our primary, accenting by lighter green tones, neutral greys and touches of sparkly metallics, and we think the end result is nothing short of stunning.
I seem to be excited a lot these days. And a great deal of that is because of all the new creative content I’ve had the pleasure of pulling together for the revamped ‘The Details’ wedding blog. And today is no different. Today marks the start of sharing custom color story boards, boards that are meant to get your creative juices flowing as you plan your own personal wedding design. Pulling together seemingly unrelated elements that combine to tell a story that inspires emotion is a creative activity that I adore. So yet again, I’m very excited!
Inspired by this first for the blog, I’ve selected a spring palette to kick things off. Featuring calm taupes and subtle greys to reflect the quiet awakening of life all around, and soft pinks and mint greens to represent the prettiness of the transition from winter to spring, this c0lor story is all about new beginnings.
