The result is weddings that are detailed and cohesive.
What inspires you when you decorate?
I am constantly inspired by various aspects of life such as nature, trends, and of course colour palettes. I would be lying if I didn't admit to a passion for pinks! But they have to be soft and pastel. Various shades of this lovely colour are feminine, elegant and romantic. Blush pinks are happy tones and often give a sense of freshness.
Any advice for brides who dont have a clue where to start with decor, colour schemes etc?
Often brides struggle with establishing a theme or colour pallet. The choices are are overwhelming. I encourage our clients to choose palettes and styles that are a reflection of themselves. I ask our clients such questions as 'do you like modern or classic styles?' Hiring a stylist or designer is key to narrowing down the options and build confidence in the client as well as giving them the piece of mind that on the wedding day they can relax and know that all is taken care of.
Are you willing to fly out of town and or consult with brides outside the states? Yes.. we are available for design consult outside of canada.
