Board #286 | Heirloom Gold

There are trees on my street that were green one day, and golden yellow the next – it is definitely fall! Those colors, and the season, have inspired this warm, gilded wedding inspiration board today, with some luxurious heirloom touches. Paired with gold, yellow is raised to a new level of sophistication… what do you think?

Mood: luxuriously timeless, warm
Palette: yellow, gold, peach, black, cream

    Oh wow. I always love your boards, Kathryn, but this is one of my favourites! Usually this level of elegance and polish is reserved for neutral color schemes like metallics, white and black, but you’ve managed to incorporate color and keep it so refined at the same time. Gorgeous!

    There’s something about yellow and grey in general lately that is really appealing to me…I love seeing it in home decor, and here’s a perfect wedding application!

  • Terry says:

    I love love love this one! Yellow is one of my favorite colors, but it seems like you always see it paired with funky or modern looks, which is just not my look. I love the soft, sentimental, refined look of this board.

    oh how gorgeous! the whole board feels like the warm glow of candle light…

  • Joanna says:

    Wow! This is absolutely beautiful. We JUST set our wedding date and picked the venue on Sunday (fall ’10 in Connecticut) and the ballroom/cocktail area/bar has a warm cream/yellow color on the walls… seeing this beautiful board on your site is giving me so many ideas!! Thanks! :-)

    This couldn’t have come at a better time – I’ve been looking for inspiration for my grandparents’ 50th anniversary! Beautiful.

  • Miss Shortcake says:

    if I had to do my wedding over, I would be ALLLL over this one! Luckily, our wedding is only a week and a half away, so there’s (finally) no more room for changing my mind!
