I get my inspiration from everywhere, either a dress, a painting or a sunset…. I hope any images here help you find yours, it only takes a little bit of imagination and always looking at things with the eyes of the soul instead of our physical, limited ones, limits that come from our minds and that are only  imposed to ourselves by us … Imagination is limitless.

Friday Favorites, inspiration for weddings and events

I believe images are powerful and inspiring, if we stop limiting our perceptions to the obvious, a world of possibilities and wonder lays ahead of us.  Happy dreaming or happy traveling of the mind and a great weekend everyone. Thank you for stopping by!

Emmanuelle Beart, French Actress. So beautiful, I would get married in that dress in a heart beat!

Fifty Shades of What?!

MARSALA

Gorgeous
Gorgeous

Marsala is the color of the year… Well, even though I like this shade very much, to me it gets too close to Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s 2014 seleccion.  Too close but not enough to be able to reuse the accessories of last year with the new shades or tints of the new one. To me last years Radiant Orchid was more in the cooler side, with blue undertones, this years Marsala is more in the warmer side, with earthy undertones like the wine from which it takes it’s name that comes from the surroundings of the Sicilian city of Marsala in Italy . (By the way,  I don’t think there is anything in the colder side in Italy! Everything seems to be warm and intense!)

I love this, I've been a fan of lacquered walls and rich tones for ever and that light fixture is awesome

I don’t follow fashion or trends at all, I enjoy them but they don’t dictate anything in my world, unless I happen to fall in love with one of them.  What I don’t understand is that they pick the colors too close to each other, in the same intensity…. I would rather have them pick something complementary or a tint or shade of the color, so regular people who follow these things can have a better opportunity to play with what they already have just adding the “new” color, creating richer environments with more layers and personality and cooler wardrobes . Well, I’m not color expert or anything close to that but for what is worth, this is my fifty cents in this matter 😉

Some hues are gorgeous like this one

I'm a little afraid.... it's still Marsala, right?
I’m a little afraid…. It’s still Marsala, right?

I’ve had many people asking me along the years why a particular color, even white, didn’t work with what they had at home or in their closet, when it seemed perfect at the store… Undertones!  I won’t get into that, there are too many blogs and too many experts that already do that brilliantly, just trying to give one more reason why the experts at Pantone should pick something complementary or analogous, with the same or compatible undertones, that will work together and in that way make life simpler for people that don’t know much about the intricacies of color but they do know something is not working and they don’t know why!   Probably I’m wrong but it’s just my humble opinion… Still, I think they should do that at least two years in a row…

These are gorgeous! They would make any woman feel like a queen.

The title in this post is Fifty shades of … because I wrote another one called  “The color Purple and it’s fifty shades” talking about last year’s pick.  I’d like to put a link here but I have no idea how… it seems to me that I could reuse some of the images I used there… confusing!
