Color Crazed : Boston Cream Pie

It’s not always easy to think of happy, pretty things when there are tragedies happening in the country, but the great thing about weddings is that they’re centered around the most powerful emotion that keeps any of us going: love.

I felt it was only appropriate to dedicate this week’s Color Crazed palette to a beautiful city that could use a little extra love at this time. Thank you Boston for your delicious desserts… and your courageous citizens who banded together when faced with something so difficult.

Color Crazed : Feeling Blue

 

bring-it-home-diningThere are certain items and styles we grow up with that we consider permanently beautiful because of their familiarity and sentimentality. No matter how vastly my style changes through the years, I always look fondly upon the blue and white china that my mother has always loved.

They aren’t items that fit into my everyday decor, but when I saw this photo on the right from Camille Styles’ blog, I immediately loved the pairing of the royal blues with a robin’s egg hue. The combination feels fresh and colorful without being in-your-face. Perfect for a spring or summer wedding with beach-y or outdoor elements.
