Interior Inspiration

One of my favorite things about watching design based television shows are the concept boards…you know…when the creative designer pins up little photos of furniture, paint swatches, rug or tile samples, and other decorative elements so that the client can get a sense of their vision.  Well by now you have been inundated with bridal mood or inspiration boards, that showcase your colors, the flowers you are attracted to, the dresses or accessories that you love.  But for some brides compiling all of those elements can be daunting and overwhelming, especially if you aren’t exactly sure where to start or what will most reflect your vision.

Enter the world of interior design– seriously…the world of bridal and the world of interior design collide ALL THE TIME.  You just may not have looked at it from that perspective before.  This is truly the PERFECT place to start.  When I am planning an event scape for a client, one of the first questions I ask is “What is your favorite home accessory store?”  I can tell so much from that one question.  Whether they have a modern or romantic bent.  The types of colors combinations they favor.  And most importantly, what influences their tastes.

Need an example to see where I’m headed with this?

Here is a store display from ZGallerie one of my favorite accent stores when I am seeking event decor that will be unique.  Now here is how my ICA friends at A Divine Event in Georgia translated it to an event design!

Wow– love it!  So next time you are stuck and need some inspiration…check out your favorite home design store, or great blogs like and you’re creative juices will be flowing again in no time.
