Monday Mood Board: Blue Hues
Hello, lovelies! I am delighted to welcome you back to our pretty little page this Monday morning, I hope that you had a wonderful weekend, despite the rather dismal weather.
Today, we’re talking blue hues, but beautiful ones none the less. Undoubtedly, this month is a struggle for us all: children go back to school, tighter budgets are in place for Christmas, and of course, this ghastly weather which has come after such a glorious summer.
This season however, is a chance to mix up your colours to muted blues, greys and charcoals. The perfect pairing for lush greenery in abundance, trailing vines, opulent flowers and twinkling candles.
For The Ladies…
Laid-back loveliness elegance and simplicity. For our first inspiration board we created something that embraces the winter chill.
This month, why not embrace a coloured wedding dress, nude chiffon or a romantic lace blue gown. We are swooning over the gowns below, created by Katya Katya Shehurina. Oh, Please can we now talk about *those* shoes. I am sure every bride would love to walk down the isle in a lush pair of Valentino Rockstuds? Perhaps both would do! After all you do only get married once!

Pale-hued flowers, white roses and blue hydrangeas create an understated and refined look. These paired with touches of natural materials, foliage and bare branches make for a stunning bouquet. Why not recreate this for your own special day flowers?
You may have thought to yourself that their isn’t really that much options for blue styling, but just take a look at these boards below! Pretty pastel hues combined with blush and white looks ever so dreamy, almost fairy tale like; we adore them. How about you?

Beautiful blues used sparingly with elegant florals, or tableware touches and you really have picked a stunning colour palette, it pairs beautifully with golds, creams or equally blushes and pale pinks, exactly like Pantone’s 2016 colour of the year, rose quartz.
When looking to tie your colour scheme together, don’t forget about the little touches such as your stationery and decorations on the day.
Finish your day with a beautifully decorated cake. Perhaps adorn it with delicate paper-thin sugar petals, or a touch of gold leaf for an opulent feel. We love the cool fading blue marble tiers of this subtle creation.
