#104: peach & blue inspiration


Hello lovelies and welcome to a brand new week on b.loved! I was going to share another bright and summery inspiration board this morning, I was thinking sunshine colours orange, yellow and grey.  But then as I sat staring out the window as I was putting together this week’s posts the clear skies and soft blue timber cladding of the houses across the road inspired me to create a softer, summery palette.  I love blue shades, but as a cool tone they’re often more associated with the colder seasons.  So, instead of colour popping, today we’re going pastel pretty with a cool blue, grey and peach palette for a romantic summer wedding.

The soft, stormy grey works as a perfect backdrop whether you’re planning a garden, beach or country house wedding.  Use as accents in your wedding stationery, bridesmaids & groomsmens outfits and as a table linen for a neutral base, then layer your shades of powdery blue, peach and dusty greys on top.  Instead of full blown pattern or lace, look for other ways to introduce texture. Ask your florist for a bouquet and table centres with a mix of these colours and full blousey blooms for a luxurious, romantic feel.  Let your ‘maids have fun in these frothy layered tulle skirts {find similar at Doris Designs}, in just the most divine shade of grey-blue, team with peachy posies for a coordinated look.  Organza and tulle embellishment on the brides dress adds interest in a contemporary way.

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.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
