A Winter Wedding Inspiration

One of my favorite wedding themes is a silver and ice blue romantic winter evening. I picture the light reflecting from a streetlight onto the snow on a clear evening as well as frozen tree branches glimmering beneath a blue sky. I picture lanterns and chandeliers, candelabras and white trees. Awe! Now I just need a winter wedding to design!

Seaside Cottage Inspiration

Last summer my husband and I spent a week with my husband's family at a beach house in Seaside, Oregon. This has always been one of my favorite beach towns, and after returning home I set out to take my inspirations into a room in my house. I chose our upstairs landing area for my seaside cottage!

My Italian Wedding

For my wedding all my ideas stemmed off of the following two images. With the help of my mom and aunt we were able to make my dream of an Italian wedding a reality!

Black and White Dining Room

I recently updated my dining room. I knew I want to reupholster my dining room chairs and decorate the room in black and white. I combined the following inspirations with what I already had, & I ended up with a beautiful new room!

Tuscan Sunset Wedding

My friend Megan is getting married this summer, and her wedding colors are red, orange and yellow. She asked me to help her come up with a theme, and my mind instantly went to a sunset in Tuscany. Here are the images that inspired me for her decor. I am so excited to see what ideas she chooses to go with!
