Board #249 | Première danseuse

Here is the second inspiration board that I made a few months ago for I just adore the illustration that Rene Gruau did for Christian Dior, and really loved making this wedding board based around it.

Mood: feminine, modern
Palette: shades of gray, blush pink, orange, peach

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! These boards make me want to change my color palette every day.

    I wonder why every “grey” board gets cherry blossoms or dogwood blossoms? We’re doing grey in the fall, so we’re avoiding any springtime flower for decor. Any other ideas? Thanks!

    jlsimon56 – Dusty miller, lamb’s ears, succulents and leucadendron buds are all great ways to add gray to your flowers. For fall, dahlias and ranunculus are both lovely and available in a lot of different colors. Other flowers you can get in the fall are: hydrangea, cosmos, and some types of roses. I hope that’s helpful!

    So delicate, so lovely. This is like a ballerina bride’s dream. I am enamored.

    OMG I just changed my wedding colors…again!
    Seriously, this is absolutely perfect for our venue. It’s a renovated historic social club with pale slate grey walls and white trim, white curtains, white chairs, etc… We’re having a springtime ceremony followed by a luncheon and dance.
    Grey, silver, white, peach and pale pink. Romantic but not too girly.
    I’m so excited about this palette!

    Kathryn, thanks for posting some ideas. I had thought ranunculus wouldn’t be available, but I’m holding out! I love the lambs ear, too!

    Miranda, where are you located – your venue sounds fabulous. I’d love to see pics online. Is there a website for it?

    Our church has white-washed walls and painted grey woodwork. The reception site, another historic building, has peachy-pink walls with all sorts of colorful carvings. I’m so happy to see this board that pulls all that together!

    Love this look! It’s absolutely gorgeous. Insanely elegant and sexy at the same time.
