A Different Sort of Design Project



Life is good these days.  I have some wonderful clients, and I'm giddy with excitement over our Coffee Talk seminar series (the next seminar is August 13!).  I'm also planning a wedding.  This all contributes to my lack of posting as of late.

Our wedding is a lot like any other design project in the sense that we need to convert a space into something different.  It's a unique challenge because it's a temporary space that needs to be constructed and torn-down quickly, with minimal waste.  And we've got very little money or time to work with.

Since the wedding planning is one of the factors keeping me from blogging, I thought I might just share just a few of my inspiration photos (many of which are from JL Designs - she does AMAZING wedding work!).

Main ideas: 
Chocolate Brown & Pear Green
Succulents
Green & White floral
White vases
White Paper Lanterns

 Our wedding is going to be at a covered picnic area.  While the location is beautiful (in a canyon very close to our home), the picnic site is simple.  I think this could be so much fun if I only had more time to work with.  Instead, this may become more of a "shoemaker's kid" type project - I think all my creativity will be focused on my clients rather than my own projects.  

Wish us look - we have 2 months to go!
