Rustic & Romantic Inspiration Board

I felt inspired today after getting an email debuting some of Pottery Barn’s new fall collection. I really love the colors in this pillow cover:

fall2008pantone.jpgI came up with a fun palate based on the color combo in the pillow’s design. The main colors featured are pesto, periwinkle gray, and irish coffee with a splash of “mandy.” My inspiration board turned out to be a little rustic with a lot of romance. My favorite elements are the super chic chandeliers hung from wooden beams, the antique wooden box used as table numbers, and the old medicine bottles used as vases (…you know me!). I was also inspired by the new Williams Sonoma home collection (I got the magazine in the mail the other day… to die for!), especially the Rosemary and Olive wreath featured on their website. Wreaths are such an intimate and unexpected touch to wedding décor, don’t you think? I love using wreaths on church or venue doors, on the back of chairs, or to dress up a drab table. The Rosemary and Olive wreath theme was carried over into the back of the chairs as garland. Beautiful! I hope you enjoy it.
