Things That Inspire Us In The Winter

For us, inspiration can come from all kinds of things. Fashion, home decor, food, travel, you name it! Right now we are loving frosty colour palettes. Soft greys, muted blues and shimmering neutrals all create that soft winter look that gets you excited to warm up with some mulled wine and a blanket by the fire. Here are a few things that are inspiring us this winter season.

1. Velvet

We have been dreaming about velvet since early last year when we started planning for our 2017 couples. We love how luxurious velvet can be, and its heaviness makes it that perfect finishing touch for any winter design. 

2. Layering Of Prints + Textures

Layering in general is a huge fav of ours, but the different textures that winter offers get us extra giddy. Plaids, heavy cable knits, and furs; put them all together and you have one seriously cozy + stunning look. Whether you are using it for a lounge set up, or even in your table top design, this is a winter must in our eyes. 

3. Mixing Metallics

Metallics are already a huge phenomenon, but who says you have to choose just one? Mixing silvers, golds, rose golds, coppers, and dark brass can create that festive sparkle everyone is looking for during the winter.

4. Playing With Fire

One of our favourite things about winter designs is that you can incorporate fire in a dramatic way. Wrap your guest tables around large outdoor stone fireplaces, or create a stunning outdoor lounge using a fireplace as the focal point. The fire creates a cozy atmosphere that allows you to sit outside and enjoy the natural winter scenery while keeping toasty warm.  

When winter looks this pretty we're okay with it sticking around for a bit! If you are interested in having Lucy Myers Events assist you with the wedding or event of your dreams, check out the services we offer and contact the LME team to chat more!
