Pearls Events Loves | Colorful Wedding Inspiration

Today I realized I'm ready for Spring. The joyful holiday season has ended, and, if you're in the Midwest, you know we're in for a long, gray winter. I'm already sick of wearing black, gray & white, and the salt stains on my jeans annoy me. I'm ready for some color! Above are some inspiring images from the newest Crate and Barrel catalog that arrived on my doorstep. I love the clean white furniture - it makes the colors pop off the pages. And the stripe and color block details of the linens are wonderful.

If you've been to my home office, you know I favor soft colors on the walls, neutral furniture with bold accents. I surround myself with a cheery palette to wake me up in the morning and inspire me as I work throughout the day.

As you design your wedding, I encourage you to be inspired by color, even if it's the palest of pinks and soft gray that catches your eye. You can work color into so many details - linens, flowers, paper products, the cake, favors - that it's hard not to have a cohesive look.

What colors inspire you as we begin 2010?

Those pictures make me really happy. :o)

I really want to re-do a room in my house with purples and yellows - all different shades and hues.

Wedding wise, I'm really feeling the monochromatic thing right now...

I am with you about the use of color! Just yesterday, I wrote a blog about color trends for 2010. I think we're in for bold and fun colors as we enter this year of optimism.

Green and yellow are my favorites.

I love Crate and Barrel, by the way. It's too bad there's not one in our area.

I LOVE these colors! Very inspirational! I really need to break out of the monochromatic logo/website and was already thinking about it tonight, so your blog is just giving me that extra nudge! Thanks! :)

Ooohh! So pretty! I feel like a kid in a candy store when I look at these images. I just want to eat them! I love that blue wall and the white desk, but c'mon! We all know no one's work area is that clean unless they're never there! :)
