Inspiration Board: Quintessential Fall in Eggplant, Tenne, and Ripe Pear

First, let me apologize for the long lag in between inspiration boards! I’ve been so busy and this one has been sitting in photoshop for a long time.

quintfallinspiration.jpgI was inspired to do this board by an email I received from Crate & Barrel last month, advertising some of their new fall products! I saw these two images and immediately loved the color combination. I love purple, pumpkin (although this color is officially named “Tenne”) and the color of pear together. It is so fall festive and effortless. I think food provides a lot of color palates that we must consider. I remember watching an episode of Trading Spaces MANY years ago where Genevieve Porter did a room inspired by a cup of miso soup. I always admired and understood her for that, and I try to find inspiration in the same way: everyday life and the unexpected.

This color palate really asked for a country-style wedding. I could see it implemented at Candlelight Farms Inn, Tyrone Farm, The Webb Barn, or Wickham Park. Of course, it would also be gorgeous at a private estate wedding! There are so many fun elements that I wanted to include but I just didn’t have the space. So, here is to what is left of our fall foliage!
