Beach Glass Wedding Inspiration

Beach Glass Wedding Inspiration via DelphineAhhh, Beach Glass. One of our very favorite colors (aside from green, of course). It’s the perfect color for beachy, summer, or destination weddings … but pair it with some silver and it translates perfectly to a winter wedding invitation.

Liberty the Eagle | Limestone, Feather & Lemon Color Palette

liberty bald eagle color palette by delphineLast week I visited the South Carolina Aquarium with my son after school one afternoon. We were both smitten with Liberty, a rescued Bald Eagle. Isn’t she a stunner? I love the lemon color of her beak.

color palette: moody luxe inspired by alexander mcQueen

In just a few days I’ll be in New York! Of course I’m looking forward to all the trade shows and seeing a ton of great designs (and designers); but I admit that I’m most looking forward to a visit to the Met with a dear friend to see the Alexander McQueen exhibit

color palette: dark teals inspired by girl with dragon tattoo film

Screen captures from The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

I love watching movies on my laptop while I’m working on tedious repetitive projects. Usually I have the movie showing in a little box in the corner of my screen. However 5 minutes into The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and my work file was forgotten and the film was full screen! The story is thrilling (after seeing this I went to the library so I could read all three books in the trilogy). But the visuals of this film are what really hooked me. The set design is truly stunning.

The color palette of this film, which is a dark thriller set in Sweden during winter, is a moody mix of cool dark blue greens and near-blacks: teal, verdigris, slate, stone and nightmare black. There were also some ochres and sepias in some of the interior shots. 

So far this year, a turquoise, sky blue, mimosa yellow and lemon yellow color palette has been the best-selling ink colors for spring and summer wedding invitations. I predict the palette will darken a bit into darker versions of those same colors (like shown above) for fall and winter weddings. In the film the colors were dark and moody, but for a wedding I think they work really well, too. There’s something quite romantic about this color palette, don’t you think? I love the giant house in the top left corner. Wouldn’t you love to attend a wedding there? Sweden is now on my list of places I’d love to visit.

travel with list cont.



photos by Salvatore Ardillo


Thailand has always intrigued me. Sam shared these photos from a recent trip and my passport is now calling to me. Check out this amazing jade & teal & gold color combo. Although the pattern and gold leaf could easily be overwhelming, the ornamentation seems somehow restrained and elegant. Someday I’d love to see these temples for myself.
