inspiration board #93: emerald & mint


Morning lovelies! It was lovely to see the sun come out this weekend in London!  As I sat writing this week’s posts, the low winter light was bouncing off the windows of the houses around me creating the most beautiful reflections.  And you know, by now, that sunshine makes me happy!

It’s fair to say I have a bit of an obsession with emerald right now, perhaps it’s rich jewel-like hue is just what’s needed after the last few weeks of snow and sub-zero temperatures.  Whatever it is I just can’t stop coming up with ideas for new inspiration boards pairing up this colour.  Before Christmas I experimented with emerald & cranberry for a festive theme with a boho twist, and last week I coupled emerald & gold to create a chic & elegant theme which would suit a black-tie wedding.  This week, I’m thinking early spring with an emerald & mint colour palette combining different shades of green and white.  This look is calm and relaxed, with the soft and elegant florals providing a natural touch I can see this in a garden setting with pretty styled tables set up in the shade of leafy green trees.  Keeping the relaxed feel, guests are served mint lemonade, straight from the bottle, with mini-cakes adorning each setting.  Decor is kept simple and minimal, with perhaps a few jade-coloured trinkets adding a personal touch.  A hint of glamour comes from the jewels, well, it is emerald after all!

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.
