Friends, I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather (which is why I forgot to publish this post to go up earlier today!), so I don’t have much to say about today’s inspiration board, except that I’m very much in the mood for festive winter inspiration, and I’m loving combinations of gray with warm colors like red and orange and pink, so I hope you love them too!

Friends, I’m heading out a couple days early for the Thanksgiving holiday, but I wanted to leave you with some fun links first. And a painting of pie slices, because who doesn’t love pie? Here’s to pie and family, my two favorite things about this holiday.

Muppet concert posters!

Lauren Bush and David Lauren tie the knot – gorgeousness. Also, you think she’ll be Lauren Lauren now?

Thanksgiving dessert inspiration (like baked pumpkin and sour cream puddings, hello).

This polo shoot is killing me – perfection from Calder Clark and A Bryan Photo.

Love the pine cone garland in this post (and everything else too).

Love the architectural design details in this dress.

Or the sculptural details in this one.

I’ve been thinking lots about unexpected color schemes for fall, and when I came across this painting, I fell in love with the idea of gray and coral, especially with some bay leaf garland accents. It would work wonderfully in almost any season, but I think with the orange blush of the coral, it is a sophisticated take on an autumn palette. Also, as a neutral, I don’t think that gray is going anywhere (calling it trendy would be a bit like calling basic black a fad). It’s wonderfully subtle and can range from sleek modern to softly romantic like it is here to dark and moody, and I really just love it in all its forms.

Mood: sweet, romantic
Palette: storm gray, faded coral
