Color Inspiration Contest: Black and White Damask with Red accents


The whole thing started with a dress...

For my wedding dress, I immediately knew that I wanted black accents on it - something edgy but still elegant.  When I began dress shopping I was blown away by all the different styles that offer exactly what I was looking for!  Many wedding dresses with black accents are of course inspired by the infamous dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in the classic film Sabrina.


After I found my dress, the rest just started falling into place.  The black and white combo was crisp and classic, and when I started seeing all these fabulous damask, brocade and filigree patterns, a light bulb went off in my head.  What a perfect way to incorporate these colors into my wedding!

My middle name is Rose, so I've always naturally been drawn to the drama and passion that a red rose signifies, and I love how they accentuate a classic damask pattern.  I've always had a romantic notion that I would hold  a stunning bouquet of red roses when I married the man of my dreams!

I created the inspiration board shown above with elements and different items that will be incorporated into my upcoming black and white damask wedding!
