Once again, I’ve been inspired by the weather for my post today. It’s been a bit hit and miss, sometimes rainy, misty and horrible, but we are getting little pockets of sunshine here and there. I saw a rainbow on my way in to work this morning so I’m exploring the rainbow theme. There’s a few wedding ideas, and some quirky interior design ideas too.
Kat Thomas runs The Paper Florist, and we were lucky enough to have her as an exhibitor at the last Vintage Wedding Fayre held at Devonport Guildhall on Sunday 12th February 2012. She’ll be at the next Vintage Wedding Fayre too (Sunday 7th October 2012), details of which can be found here – Kat is extremely talented and makes her flowers from eco-friendly, recycled paper. The bouquets below are vibrant and bold – perfect for a rainbow wedding.
I was blown away by my next discovery. Unfortunately, this cake company is based on the Gold Coast so shipping might be a little bit tricky. But this collaboration between Deliciously Decadent Cake Design & White Ivy Design is just superb, and possibly worth the return flight?! The use of flowers and the pastel rainbow colours results in a striking design that you wouldn’t want to cut when the moment came. Image Sourced here taken by Life in Bloom Photography.
Wai-Ching Clothing produce a whole range of gorgeous gowns but their bridal range is something special. Chrissy Wai Ching, the designer, describes her clothes as “wild yet wearable”. This particular gown was a custom-made design and is made from 100% silk. The rest of the bridal collection can be found here. Image Sourced here.
Moving away from weddings now, I stumbled across a fantastic furniture restoration company based in the UK. Taken from their website, “Squint was the creation of Lisa Whatmough, who through her passion for textiles and with a very British design sensibility has created a world of richly decorative home wares which are a fusion of fashion and the decorative Arts”. They upholster antique furniture with colourful vintage fabrics. Although you’d probably need a small bank loan to afford any of their pieces, they would certainly jazz up your living room!
And finally, continuing on the home decor theme, I love these quirky colourful shelves from The Company Store – a perfect way to inject some colour and display your colourful nic-nacs.
