#155: Oil Painting

Navy, Burgundy & Gold Rich Summer Wedding Ideas

Happy Monday my loves! By now I’m sure you know I’m very much a pastels girl, you can give me light & pretty every day of the week and I’d never, ever get bored.  But recently I’ve been falling in love with deep, rich hues. The tones of the most beautiful oil paintings, capturing the mystery and intrigue of feminine beauty in an altogether different light.  This week I’ve embraced these darker shades – navy, petrol and teal blue, berry red, magenta and burgundy, and touches of bright gold to lift the palette.  What do you think? I’m rather inspired for a late Summer or Autumn wedding!

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.
