event inspiration {fabulous fall color}

Inspiration really is a funny thing—how elusive it is, how is strikes, how frustrating it can be to try and force and how the feeling of something clicking is unlike any other. All weekend long I was itching to find the perfect unique fall event palette —but nothing resonated with me. That was until yesterday (when of course I gave up) and saw a beautiful photo of shoes on a colorful fabric over at two ellie.

(via two ellie by kellen jacob photography, blumarine, jose villa, jose villa, design lovely via dolci odille and tec petaja)
The color combination was perfect—unique and just the right touch of moodiness for fall. The result a very colorful and slightly funky affair that I would happily attend.

Pssst...I am also guest posting over at one of my favorite blogs, Plush Palate, today.

I love this palette: it is so fitting for fall but not often used. I really enjoy the addition of blue and green to the traditional "autumn" palette (and the daisy garland is so fun).

Heidi Lyn said...

What a wonderful way to add depth and spice to the fall pallate. I love these colors.

I saw those shoes over a two ellie and loved them instantly! I am glad you made a color board out of them, so fun!

This is truly a gorgeous inspiration board! Love how it's not so predictably autumn, but rather references it here and there!

And many thanks for your guest post today!! The orange is a hit :)

I just love the fabric underneath the shoes. (at least it looks like fabric, a rug maybe?) either way, its fabulous!
