Today’s artistic wedding inspiration board is centered around a rich palette of poppy orange, matte gold, and teal – perfect for the last blaze of summer as we tip into fall. The vivid combination of colors splashed across a whitewashed background brings to mind mid century modern design. Even such a bold palette leaves room for nuance, which is where the gorgeous artistic details come in – masterful calligraphy, a foraged bouquet wrapped in hand dyed ribbon, and that absolute masterpiece of a cake that looks too perfect to cut.
I’ve always thought of orange is one of those colors that can so easily overwhelm, so it feels more effective to use it as bright, powerful accents. A pop of sunset orange can make the perfect finishing touch to a tableau – vibrant poppies and ranunculus against a field of green or orange candles mixed with peach and white. The other colors in this board are so attention-seeking that they work best in smaller doses as well, allowing such bold shades to play well together. Simple, clean lines in place settings and accent pieces create a blank canvas to intricate details and vivid hues to take center stage!
