Gray Wedding Inspiration

Gray Wedding Inspiration via DelphineGray isn’t a color that often comes to mind when you think of love and happiness, but when it comes to a wedding it actually happens to be very romantic, quite modern and perfectly elegant. You can pair it with bright colors or other neutrals, and it is stunning in any season. We love this inspiration board because it shows how much of an underestimated color gray really is. Mix in a little tiny bit of sparkle, à la mercury glass, and gray is perfect for winter holiday weddings.

Etienne Letterpress in Dull Gold & Silver

Etienne Letterpress in Dull Gold & SilverOften, it’s one or the other when it comes to gold and silver, but our letterpressed Etienne design is the perfect example of how to combine the two metallic inks.

Tiffany and Taylor Custom Letterpress Wedding Invitations

custom tiffany letterpress wedding invitationsIt was such a pleasure to work with Tiffany to create a custom letterpress wedding invitation suite for her Lowcountry wedding. We modified our Robin design, enlisted the help of the talented Paige Tanenbaum for custom calligraphy, and letterpressed this beauty in lilac and gold inks on exquisite quartz shimmer paper.

letterpress wedding invitations by delphine

I’m always a sucker for party goodies, and so is Tiffany! So we printed up some lovely cocktail napkins for her reception. We repeated the Robin pattern and foil stamped lilac napkins with sparkly silver foil, to pick up the candlelight shimmering through mercury glass. I cannot wait to see photos of Tiffany & Taylor’s special day!

Silver and Gold: Serve in Style

Silver and Gold serving trays via DelphineThe holidays are over—phew!— but that doesn’t mean you can’t still eat in style. Put a little plate of cheese, a bowl of fruit, a few crackers, and a candle on a tray (plus a glass bottle of red wine, bien sûr) and voila: a pretty setting for one (or two). Perfect for a cozy evening on the couch, as you recover from a whirlwind season. Here are some of my very favorite serving trays, in luxe silver and gold — timeless and chic, non?

My Dreamy Workspace

ghost chair silver desk polaroidThe studio is in the midst of a big cleanup/reorganization. It’s in the “it’s going to look worse before it gets better” stage. It is so incredibly messy in there that I had to move my computer to a new workspace just to be able to think. Can you work in a messy office? I absolutely cannot do it. The “noise” of the mess makes my brain hurt … and it’s difficult to design without a functioning brain! This is my temporary workspace. I borrowed a Ghost chair from Mom. I love it except for the fact that I can’t cross my legs into my lap — Mom told me if I scratch the chair I’m toast!

Papercut Inspired Jewelry

Papercut Sterling Silver Jewelry by Emma van Leest for Polli

I’m in awe of the delicate detail in these pieces of jewelry. Melbourne paper cutting artist, Emma van Leest, drew inspiration from explorer’s dreams of paradise. Aussie jeweler Polli tanslated the paper cut art into fantastic stainless steel jewelry. I like the idea of wearing a fantasy around your neck: when navigating real life is a little rough, touch your necklace and dream of what could be.
