Obsessed with Sardinia!

Okay, so have you seen those mysterious pictures of boats on Pinterest that look like they are just hovering over turquoise water?  Sardinia, an Italian island.  I need to go!  Some of my latest invitation creations have a Mediterranean feel as an expression of my urge to visit this amazing little island.  Here are 10 ideas to help your obsession grow too!  Ha!

What’s Inspiring Me: A Colorful Home

While this is typically a blog featuring wedding inspiration, today I am shifting to what’s inspiring me lately outside the wedding world.  For anyone who has seen my house, from the outside it’s a typical newish colonial brick house, but once you walk in, BAM! colors abound!  Rooms are painted in vibrant reds, oranges, yellows, greens, and blues, and I’m still trying to find a place for a beautiful eggplant color.  Some guests roll their eyes, but to me, it’s home.  And my patient husband (who may roll his eyes when the latest vibrant paint color goes up) puts up with the colors too!  Here’s a look at some beautiful spaces (spiked with color of course) that inspire me beyond belief.  Is this you too?  Share some color inspiration of your own if you will!
