You don’t always need bright colors to make a statement – today’s modern marbled wedding inspiration packs a big punch with a neutral, earthy palette! Gray, yellow, and amber combined with crisp details and a hint of swirling patterns for a complex, organic palette.
The combination of gray and yellow has always seemed inherently modern to me – suited to austere lofts and warehouses, graphic prints, and clean lines. I wanted to give that design concept a little twist by adding a hint of warm amber. It immediately turns a chilly palette into something natural and closer to earth, which is perfect for the fallow month of January.
Marbled details seemed like a perfectly natural touch with the palette of earth tones – the swirling pattern resembles striations of rock formations or tree rings. Smooth but voluminous lines in drapery or sweeping skirts add a similarly flowing line to the marbling, creating a gorgeous harmony between patterned and clean details drawn together by subtle shifts in color.
