Wedding Wednesday: Provencal Style Inspiration

Light and breezy, sunlit, pastels, chippy paint, aged furniture, lichen covered stone walls, airy draperies, aromatic herbs drying in wavy glass windows, pottery sitting on open shelves, honey bees buzzing about in the garden, these are just a few aspects of Provencal style. Whether you are planning a destination wedding at a French countryside chateau or a local outdoor Provencal inspired fete, today’s Wedding Wednesday inspiration is perfect for you.

Provencal style is definitely in when it comes to 2013 weddings. It evokes the popular vintage style of 2012, but subdued and with a bit more white space to relax the eye. I like to think of it in terms of Coco Chanel’s quote about looking in to a mirror before heading out the door and removing one accessory. Vintage inspired details, but not to the point where every surface has bits and bobs all about. It’s nature driven relaxation at its finest.

Today I have a gorgeous inspiration board for you and I hope you love it as much as I do!

Friday’s Favorites: French Country Wedding and Alternative Bouquets: Etsy

TGIF! What are your plans for the weekend? Me, I’m going to a roller skating kiddo b-day party tomorrow and a bridal show on Sunday. Looking forward to watching my little kiddo learn to roller skate. I’ve been barred from getting out on the track as I am about as graceful as a drunk rhinoceros. The first time (yep, first time as in I’ve done it more than once) I broke my tailbone was at a roller skating rink. Thankfully, my fiance is charged with getting out on the floor and showing my kiddo how it’s done. As for the bridal show, I’m taking one of my brides and my super fabulous intern and showing them how to survive a large scale onslaught of bridal goodness…but, I digress.

Today’s Friday’s Favorites as usual is an Etsy treasury (or two in this case) related to this week’s postings. First, is a collection of wedding bits in the French country style. Secondly, is a treasury of great bouquet alternatives. Pop on over to Etsy and see what treasures you can find and support individual artisans/vendors.

I hope you have a great weekend!

Theme Thursday: French Country Wedding

On today’s Theme Thursday, I present some French inspired rustic chic goodness. It was inspired by the Alexander Henry toile I recently purchased to recover my dining room chairs with:

Alexander Henry Midnight Pastoral Toile

French Country (also known as Pastoral) uses some lovely color combinations such as yellow and red, green an blue, red and olive, etc. as well as the pale yellow and sage green you see in the material swatch featured in the board below. I chose a muted palette as we are closing in on the Spring season. When going with a French country theme, think of chalky aged paint, preserved foods (such as the lemons on the wedding cake), slightly threadbare material, great ready to drink wine, rustic cheeses, mismatched furniture, and open fields of wheat and sunflowers.

I hope you enjoy today’s inspiration and have a great day!
