The first inspiration board of 2011 is dedicated to my talented photographer, Elizabeth Messina. She has a love of all things vintage, French and romantic, and I created this board with those three elements in mind – I think the only thing missing is chocolate. Vintage paper candy cones and a simple bouquet of old-fashioned roses are perfectly sweet details, while pearl-studded silk shoes, an antique lace veil, and ornate calligraphy in gold engraving are utterly luxurious. Add champagne and croquembouche, and set the whole thing in a gorgeous 18th-century French chateau. Sounds pretty dreamy to me!
Mood: vintage French romance
Palette: cream lace, vintage white, champagne gold
