#151: understated elegance

understated elegance, inspiration board,

Happy Bank Holiday lovelies!  I hope you are making the most of the extra day off?  Perhaps taking a break from the wedmin to enjoy a day with your beau, or attending a friends beautiful big day, or perhaps you even tied the knot yourself – Congratulations!

This weekend I’ve been taking some time out with Mr B after a month of non-stop shoots, meetings & excitement and it’s been great just to take a deep breath and re-energise for the month ahead.  So, in keeping with my relaxing weekend today’s inspiration board is all about understated elegance.  Cool grey and white are my go-to shades for anyone seeking a calming palette – my home is filled with muted tones, making it the perfect antidote to the sometimes chaotic frenzy of running two businesses!  It’s a great pick for a bride who wants a relaxed yet chic, understated yet stylish day.  Picking such a muted palette is anything but dull – it’s all about creating interest with textures.  Pick luxurious linens, beautiful full blooms with touches of silver-y grey and add battered pewter touches for a touch of antique elegance.

Instantly calming, timeless and elegant… see more grey wedding ideas here.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
