Like a mother living out her dreams through her children I am living out my interior/wedding fantasies through my wonderful clients! You may have seen on Instagram that I recently updated my kitchen and although I would absolutely love to replace my wooden worktops with marble, sadly funds will not allow. Therefore I am gradually introducing as many affordable marble accessories as possible.
I love it!! And luckily for me working in the wedding industry I get to see all of the fabulous ways that it can be used.
Marble has the ability to be both classical and modern. It is just at home in a French chateaux as it in in an industrial venue. The most recent resurgence for modern geometric shapes seen in the interior world doesn’t seem to be letting up. It is everywhere and I love how it can be used as a main feature or just as small accents.
Used as place mats in this gorgeous setting, it really lends itself so well to these romantic rustic surroundings. A table scape to die for!! Styling by The Marthy’s Vintage Garden
I am still very much in love with it being used as place names, especially here with the gold calligraphy.
Incorporating your venue aesthetic is really important and I love how this couple worked with the vast amounts of marble in their Town Hall wedding. They have used lots of other modern elements too but the flowers keep it romantic and soft. Photography – Camilla Arnhold
This stunning marble hexagonal cake is both modern but timeless and the use of real flowers really adds that wow factor. Cake – Custom Baked Cakes
The majority of marble used is Carrara, which is white and grey but brand new onto the interior scene is Terrezzo. I say brand new, its been around for decades but as with everything its made a comeback and the varieties and colours are amazing. When I think of it I picture a huge Miami beach house in the 1950s, with Terrezzo floors, pink velvet loungers and palm trees…… ooooo!!! Think Feud, Bette & Joan, and if you haven’t watched it you need to!! Here are some of my fave images.
I got slightly carried away on the amazing Yellow Trace blog! Such gorgeous interior inspiration and as I always say, if you love it in your home whats stopping you from bringing it into your wedding?
Now, I am off to find a marble butter dish, don’t ask!!!
I suppose this is whats known as a cathartic post, new year, new me and all that but to be perfectly honest this has been manifesting for a while now.
Who doesn’t love gathering around the table with their loved ones to celebrate and share a wonderful meal? So when Denby approached me to work with them on their new range I jumped at the chance.
This is a tricky subject but one I feel needs discussing. I’ve read lots in the last year from various professionals in the industry but everyone deals with it differently.
Remember Margo and Jerry from the Good Life? Well they loved it!! And it would appear I do too!
I took at trip down to the very Instagramable Petersham Nursey, Richmond in January and fell in love at first sight! So imagine my excitement when I heard they were opening a new branch in Covent Garden…..
Its nearly that time again where we have to start thinking about Autumn/Winter wedding styling. I know that there are lots of couples who love nothing more than to cosy up, light all the candles and create a warm welcoming feel to their big day.
When was the last time you sent one? I think I still have my old ones from an ex boyfriend somewhere but then I discovered the text message and that was that!
One of the reasons I love my job so much is the fact that every single wedding is so different and when I wad asked to style a French wedding I jumped at the chance!
One whole year!! I never ever dreamed I would do it and there are days when I wish I hadn’t!! But I will never go back and here is why…
