Design Concept: Dove Grey and Sunshine Yellow

We’ve featured lots of quite traditional boards recently so I thought it was about time for a chic, modern look that would work well in a city venue where outside space isn’t always a given.

greyyellow1I love, love, love grey and am constantly amazed by what a flexible accent colour it makes. Here, by teaming grey with this cheery sunshine yellow the overall look is clean, minimal and quirky.

I see this wedding taking place in an unconventional, city center space that isn’t a typical wedding venue; where different areas can be created for different parts of the day and guests can seamlessly walk from one area to another. I think this wedding would be lots of fun to attend with lots of quirky touches, a photo booth, a candy bar and little regard for ‘normal’ wedding traditions.

Design Concept: Navy Blue and Egg Yolk Yellow

We’ve got lots of exciting things to blog about this week but to start things off I think it’s about time for a new Design Concept. So voila!


I’ve had the colour palette for this concept for a while now but it’s only in the last week that I’ve come across the photos to complete the board. I really can’t get enough of navy blue at the moment and I just love how fresh it looks when teamed with the sunny yellows. This concept has French, preppy feel and I’m imagining bold patterns, golden sunshine and maybe freshly squeezed orange juice cocktails? Perhaps miniature pan au chocolat at midnight?
I chose white peonies and yellow ranunculus for flowers as I think their fluffy texture is a great balance for the crisp lines of the stationery and the beautiful Oscar de le Renta gown. I think the gown is stunning but more about that later this week….
