Board #295 | Purple Garden

Hi all! Sorry for the late post – I’m moving a little slowly this morning. Today I wanted to share with you the inspiration board I made for Virginia, the winner of the Snippet & Ink Nie Nie Auction. She is planning a June wedding in her mother’s New England garden, using plum and other shades of purple that will be in bloom at that time. She is going for a look that is romantic and beautiful with vintage touches, but not fussy. Using her guidelines, along with some pieces that she has already decided on (such as her dress and shoes), here is what I came up with…

Mood: simple garden elegance
Palette: plum, violet, pink, green
