Wedding season has arrived!

Wedding season is officially upon us!  My husband and I attended our first wedding of 2012, our friend Melissa’s beautiful nuptials at the Orinda Country Club, and I was reminded of how inspirational wedding decor can be for your own home.

I find that brides often know exactly what they want for their wedding, but are at a loss for decorating their home.  You can use a similar approach as you did for your wedding…save inspiration images that reflect a mood, colors, and individual ideas and then start compiling those ideas to create a cohesive color scheme and furniture plan.

Who says you have to be too formal or contrived with decorating?  I love the casual colors and asymmetry of the above arrangement.

Pink Hydrangeas

Monochromatic can be either colorful or neutral, like the bright pink hydrangeas above, or the dainty white flowers below.

Best wishes for all the brides and grooms of 2012 and happy decorating at home!
