January is commonly reported to be the most popular month of the year to book a summer holiday. It’s no wonder really, after all the excitement of Christmas we need something to look forward to and lift our spirits. I know I certainly do.

With that in mind, I thought I would share one of my latest inspiration boards with you, getting you in the mood for a bit of summer sun and help banish those January blues.

This mood-board was created for a recent bespoke commission and was inspired by my clients’ love of Italy. This understated and elegant approach uses natural and authentic Italian ingredients to create a warm and inviting feel. Soft whites, fresh greens and warm nude pinks make up the classic romantic colour palate.

I love the beautiful details, such simplicity but really effective. The Rosemary place settings are gorgeous and really help to carry the theme throughout the room. I especially love the DIY cocktail bar; lets face it, who wouldn’t want one of them at their wedding? The table plan made from pots of herbs is also inspired, not only does it look spectacular but it would also smell amazing.

If you fancy a little piece of Italian elegance at your wedding, or you would like to find out more about the bespoke design service I offer, please get in touch. There are also lots more gorgeous styling ideas available on the website, just visit the new Inspiration page or click here.
