Board#152: Textured Ivory

Now I'm sure it won't come as a huge surprise to long time readers that I'm not the hugest fan of black and white. I don't wear a lot of black, and I don't even feature a lot of black in my work. Saying that when the white is warmed up to ivory it's a whole other story. It has such a classic elegance to it, and I especially love it when used with lots of gorgeous textures, lace, wood, textured paper stock. With a couple of pale neutral shades it keeps it so much more interesting that straight forward black and white (sorry to all you die hard b&w lovers!!).

this is so lovely. But then again, you pair a classic color palette and throw in some lace, you've got me! I love the idea of adding some pale neutral shades to add a bit more interest - it's still classic but with a more modern twist. Love.

I have to say i agree with you when it comes to black... I'm really not a fan, either!! However the way you combine the colors and textures on this board is truly inspiring and i find myself thinking "it's beautiful"!!!

I'm a sucker for black and white in real life, but this board has completely changed the way I feel about it in a wedding context-gorgeous!
