I am fully ready for spring with this forest green and blushing peach palette! Imagine bridal portraits along a garden path, dappled leaf-green shadows cast over the delicately blooming flowers, with a rustic lodge nestled at the end of the lane. There’s more greenery inside, silvered garlands strung from raw wood rafters, glowing in the light of a vintage crystal chandelier.
I drew inspiration from the beautiful private estates settled into the Santa Cruz mountains on jewel bright lawns among the shadowed redwoods. Nestldown is the most famous, with extensive grounds and gardens surrounding a gracious lodge, the perfect blending of rustic and elegant. Writers and artists made their retreat in the mountains, equally distant from the sea and the woods, and now their sanctuaries play host to the loveliest parties in the Bay Area. I wanted to capture that tranquil beauty with the quiet luxury and natural textures in this board.
