You'll see more of Katie Elfer's work in the board below (can you tell I'm a fan???). Orange and gray is one of my favorite color combinations, but it took some time to really come up with a board I loved. I'm giddy that one of my favorite champagne labels fit into the board perfectly.

Winter Inspiration Board

I thought I'd share a board for an upcoming wedding on 2.28.09. I'm excited to see how it all materializes, it's going to require major effort from our team and our partners. The object is to transform a utility gym into a "winter wonderland" (to use the bride's words) & on a modest budget. And this gym? Not so pretty. We love a challenge & we're confident it will look amazing when we are finished!


Black, White & Green

I've been dying to do a board with black & white damask with fresh green accents. After finding the "grass" ottoman on the 2Modern Design blog and then the monogram on ELuckyDesigns page, I was all set with the inspiration I needed. I chose to do more grass elements but of course, you could swap any the grass elements for limes or green apples. I love how the green just pops against the black & white. Bonus - I was able to use some photos from Heather & Michael's wedding from 8.8.08.
