Getting Inspired with Color

Lately, I've been on a Let's Repaint Our Entire House kick. My husband isn't too thrilled with the idea, but after five years of living here, I'm ready for a change, and paint is one of the cheapest ways to make a big impact. Above is my favorite palette - all paint swatches from Martha Stewart at The Home Depot. I love the cool, breezy feeling it will give our home, and paired with our white trim, all I will need to do is update a few accessories to give the entire house the look I want for the next five years.

Just like paint, linens can play a huge roll in your overall wedding design. No, this is not the first time I've talked about linens and if you've been a reader for a while, you may remember my Event Design Process series from earlier this year. Now that I've been meeting with 2011 clients, it's started to come up again - how do we get started designing our wedding day?

The answer, to me, is find a color palette. As I dream about our home transformation over the next few months, I will start searching for home ideas an accessories in the above color palette. Nothing needs to be too matchy-matchy, however, now that I have a palette, I won't be buying random things. I want everything to seamlessly flow together, just like your event design should.

How ironic - it's very close to your brand colors. ;)
