Gray Chevron Wedding Invitation Featured in The Knot, Spring 2012


Delphine Featured in The Knot Magazine Spring 2012Delphine Gray Chevron Wedding Invitations featured in The Knot Spring 2012 magazineChevrons and the color gray … two of our favorite things combined for one super chic wedding invitation! Many thanks to The Knot for featuring our Chevron wedding invitation in their Spring 2012 magazine.

The Knot’s editors suggest green and yellow as lovely accents to gray and white color palette, and we couldn’t agree more. The best thing about gray is that it matches everything. I think it would be trés chic for bridesmaids to all wear gray dresses, with colorful heels of their choice. Pretty, right?

Chevron is one of our newest (and favorite) designs here at the studio, and I’m very happy to announce that now it’s also available in our favorite printing method: letterpress.

Crystallized Color Palette

crystal bead color paletteLast weekend I went to the Gem Faire at the Del Mar Fairgrounds with Mom. I picked up a few strands of crystals and beads. Can’t wait to show you what she makes for me. I’m particularly excited about the big natural crystals (the white ones that look like rocks). I’m going to have so many shiny and sparkly new necklaces that I will just have to find reasons to leave the studio so I can wear them.

I think the vendors at the show (which is open to the public, by the way … you don’t need to have a wholesale license) picked up on the colors of my outfit—comfy jeans, grey sweater, pale green + taupe purse, neutral accessories—and kept showing me strands of the same color beads. It totally worked: I liked their suggestions and they made sales. It’s a great tip to remember when you’re exhibiting at a trade show: make suggestions to buyers. As a buyer, shows are totally overwhelming. A little nudge in the right direction is welcome in my book.

Sparkly New Year Color Palette

Giltter New Year Oysters Color PaletteMy favorite things all have to do with the sea: walks on the beach, snorkeling, swimming, uni, tide pools, fish tacos, sand in my toes, waves, sailing, and oysters. I’m not one for resolutions, but I do think I could get on board with more ocean in my life in 2012.

Have a sparkly New Year!

E+J Bedroom Redo Update

gray zig zag chevron bedroomOur bedroom is slowly coming along. We installed gray-blue curtains nearly the same color as the “Heavy Goose” walls (and no, they don’t always look crazy like that — just were pinned back behind the door handles to let in some light for the photo shoot earlier this week). The curtains are from Ikea.

Today I ordered a gray chevron rug and zig zag pillow shams from Urban Outfitters. I realize that at some point I will tire of chevrons, but I think a $100 price tag for both zig zag-a-riffic pieces is keeping it under control.

Urban Outfitters MusicSidenote: did you know that Urban Outfitters has free albums and streaming music? Nice. I’m listening now (Phoenix … excellent). Thanks, UO!

Delphine in the Press: The Knot TV

Delphine Rose invitation in yellow, blue and graySky blue Stone Gray and Honey Yellow color palette

Yellow Gray and Blue wedding invitation by Delphine

Exciting news! Delphine is on The Knot TV. (Check us out at at minute 20). I love the color palette from this episode: sky blue, stone gray and honey yellow. It’s super romantic without being fussy or overly feminine. I can totally envision it for an elegant barn wedding or a casual garden wedding.

The gray, blue and yellow look chic together on our Rose wedding invitation, don’t you think? I’d love to see the palette played out with a yellow rose bouquet tied with a blue velvet ribbon. I’m envisioning floaty gray bridesmaids dresses with blue shoes and dreamy wrist corsages tied with the same blue velvet ribbon. I think it’s time for wrist corsages to make a comeback!

Merci beaucoup to the ladies of The Knot for including us in this episode. It’s a great one (love the cocktail recipes!).

Bedroom renovation update: yellow to gray

bedroom goes from yellow to gray bedroom paint yellow and gray bedroom after We’re busier than ever at the studio, so why should it be any different at home? who needs to rest? We’ve been working on redecorating our bedroom these past few weeks (every night, any available minute not working on client projects weekends). What do you think so far? I’m SOOO happy to finally be rid of the dijon mustard walls —and ceiling. John repainted in a beautiful light gray color: Martha Stewart Gray Goose paint.
