The New Romantic Issue: The Decor

Morning readers!  We love a pretty wedding palette here at b.loved HQ, so for our latest Style Guide collaboration with the b.team we’ve embraced all things romantic with a soft peachy-pink and grey colour scheme in our ‘New Romantic Issue‘. To bring this classic look up to date I introduced some gritty textures to add some interest and prevent the look becoming overly girly.

To kick off the issue, we’re taking a look at the décor.  I styled a simple white table against a white painted brickwork backdrop, and added both shiny and matt metal details for texture.  A statement floral arrangement from Liz at Bluesky Flowers, is displayed in a pewter footed bowl and filled with blousy peach and sweet avalanche roses and ranunculus.  Lilac and eucalyptus foliage, add a fresh Spring scent, and spiky tillandsia plants add texture.  At each place setting an elegant silver-edged plate is topped with a blush linen napkin and zinc doily plate from Rowen & Wren, decorated with the prettiest silver leaf mini-cake from Olofson Design {more about those next week!} and topped with a single rose bud.  To the side the plate is adorned with a single succulent in mercury glass, while silvery votives holding tealights add a warm glow and shimmer against the sparkling sequin runner.

This is such a pretty and easy look to recreate for your own big day, and would work in a contemporary, industrial space just as well as a more traditional hotel or country house.  Simple combine blousy fresh flowers, contemporary textures and a touch of sparkle!

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.
