Seaside Room

I am leaving tomorrow to attend my best friends' wedding in Sea Island. I say "best friends'" in that both the bride and the groom are two of my favorite people.  Hoyt and I decided to make a mini-vacation out of it so we can hang out with our friends before the BIG DAY~!!


Graduation 2006 065

{katie and me}

So, I got to thinking about Katie's wedding and the colors that will be involved...


White
Ivory
green
coral


 The bridesmaids' dresses are green- (I just asked Hoyt to describe what color green it is and he thought for a minute and said "an indescribably good green."  -- take it for what it's worth)
Katie, of course, will be in white and carrying a white/ivory/cream bridal bouquet. The rest of the flowers will be green and white, with pops of coral! 
Coral
I love this color scheme so much I decided to try something new...
Have you ever visited the blog snippet & ink? Kathryn, the designer, puts together wedding collages based on a certain color schemes... and the collaborations she comes up with are so beautiful! I'm amazed by the things she puts together. (if you are planning a wedding or will be planning one in the future I recommend going to her blog for inspiration)


This is one example her inspiration boards:

Anyway, getting to the point: 
I have decided to reverse this unique idea and...


Design a room based on a wedding color scheme!

This fabric just made me happy- so my mind started wandering over to the (hypothetical) dining room... Perhaps we should make the drapes out of this?
