Inspiration Board: Berries & Stripes

1-Gawker1

I’m just going to go ahead and say it: I LOVE today’s inspiration board. It started with the image top left, and has grown into a board I want to put on my party best and climb inside of. Because how can you not love the marriage of city sophistication and wine farm charm? Classic elements like swirly calligraphy invitations, white roses, chandeliers and a gleaming getaway car mix perfectly with softer country touches – hypericum berries, a wedding signpost, dining under the vines. Serve guests a choice of champagne or this swish gold take on mason jar cocktails during pre-dinner drinks, and wow everyone with a beautiful, sophisticated cake (from local caketress Roxanne Floquet). I love the way that the grey pinstripes bring everything together, and the palette of grey, black, white and gold with little pops of berry red smacks of sophistication. Of course, a swish bride deserves a swish dress, and I’m totally obsessed with this one! Like I say: I love all of it. Hope you do too!

Colours: Grey, black, white, gold and red

      You’re right, it is a little autumnal, I didn’t realise. It’s obviously filtering through from outside! ;)

  3. I love this board, it is so sweet! The solid striped when juxtaposed with berries, let’s the little darlings stand out! I am loving the champagne with raspberries, such a fun way to add a fruity twist to the bubbly!

  5. The alcohol lover in me immediately gravitated towards the raspberry’s in champagne, I don’t need rehab I promise! But, lovely, lovely details in your board monochrome and red are always a good mix!
