After yesterday’s dreamy Egyptian wedding, I thought I’d share with you the first inspiration mood-board for 2013 -‘Fresh Pink and Bright Yellow‘… ‘cos, I don’t know about you, but these dark winter days need a bit of spicing up! Winter, for me, is synonym of snow, après ski hot chocolate, and lazy nights by the fire. But I get bored of it pretty quickly (particularly since the skiing only happens for one week!), so right after Christmas my mind switches over to spring and summer, bright flowers, walks in the park and lazy days in sun. Linen and Silk mood-board 01.13 is the translation of what is in my mind at the moment into a visual feast of colours and wedding ideas 🙂

Fresh pink + bright yellow one of my fave colour combinations. In real life, I would hardly ever wear the two together, but there’s a lot to be learnt from nature, and if nature can mix the two so beautifully (just look at the flowers in the top left corner of the board above), and if designers can do the same and still make your home look cool and stylish, then I can’t see why the same cannot be applied to your wedding!

The key with colour combinations like this is that LESS IS MORE! Unless you’re an interior designer and know exactly what you’re doing, keep these colours as accents on a neutral base (and if you feel really modern, don’t disregard subtle grey as your base!).

Before choosing a colour scheme like this, think about the type of venue you’re holding your reception in. What is the predominant colour? Does the venue have red or blue carpets? Are the walls painted in a deep colour, other than white or cream? If the answer is yes to any of the two, then reevaluate your colour theme. Perhaps bright yellow and fresh pink will not work, as there might be too many colours visually conflicting with each other.

If the answer is no, then go ahead, but remember, introducing more colours can make your overall decor look like you’ve tried too hard. You want pink and yellow to give a fresh, stylish look to your wedding; so play with flowers, cake, stationery and even your dress accessories. Don’t be scared to use subtle pink throughout as a base colour, adding bright yellow and pink (or fuchsia) as colour pops.

Be bold and brave and let nature inspire you. Because, as cheesy as it sounds, nature always knows best 🙂

Lots of love and happy Tuesday!
