#168: Autumn Brights
Hi lovelies! Well what a gorgeous weekend! Mr B headed up to the Welsh borders to visit the absolutely beautiful Iscoyd Park, a venue that’s been on my wishlist for a while now. Oh my, we were not disappointed! I’ll be writing up my review soon, so check back in a few weeks to find out more about our stay!
Autumn is slowly creeping up on us, so this week I’m sharing another colour combo that’s just perfect for this time of year, when we’re not yet settling into cosy jumpers and crunching golden leaves. Shades of blue are always beautiful, but add a pop of orange and you’ve got a contemporary, and fun palette with just the right amount of warmth – a combination that’s hot in fashion this season too! I’ve kept some subtle geometric themes running through this board, a contemporary take on ikat patterns, with on-trend chevrons and stripes in tones of blue, aqua, orange and tangerine. As ever with modern schemes, less is more. I’d keep the flowers to the bouquets and buttonholes and create this fab DIY chevron backdrop from the Glitter Guide to create a focal point for your ceremony and behind the top table. Keeping it simple, cover the tables with tall, elegant dinner candles in bold, bright shades which add a warm glow as the evening goes on, find the DIY on Martha Stewart.
Are you celebrating this Autumn? We’d love to hear what colours you’ve picked for this transitional time of year, leave a comment below!
