Inspiration Board, XXXIV
January 27, 2009

At this point, it would have been much easier to list these boards as numbers rather than roman numerals, BUT...xxxiv is our last inspiration board! If yours didn't make it up, and you got it in by January 21st and had all of your credits listed, shoot me an email and I'll get it up asap.

Otherwise, leave a comment as to which of the boards is your absolute favorite. I am going to ask the reader who inspired these inspiration boards to vote and along with my own vote, we'll come up with a winner. Look for the announcement on Monday, February 2nd.

Here is our last entry by Corbin...

From Corbin...

In thinking about using raspberry and white as a starting point, I like the idea of fading a pale pink into the florals to create a sort of transition from the darker rose to white.  Using a natural fibered linen acts as a subtle backdrop and gives a little bit of dimension against the white tones so they pop from the table settings.  I love complimenting a new gown with vintage touches – antique ring boxes, a gorgeous piece of embroidered fabric turned into a ring pillow, or a soft floral headpiece.  To me, shabby chic says texture and layering fabrics, working off of an antique vase, even wearing a gown with lace or beaded details works well with this aesthetic.  I hope you enjoy the board.
