I’m closing out the week with neutral earthy wedding inspiration that lies at the crossroads of modern industrial and rustic vintage styling. The earthy palette of rust and bone combines those two aesthetic concepts with rust calling to mind industry, progress, and use, while tying into the decay, age, and history of bone. Pairing the two together speaks to building a future while honoring the past, the perfect symbolism for two lives uniting in marriage.
There are so many different ways to interpret this inspiration into actual event design – there is, of course, the very literal (and very on trend) translation of incorporating naturally shed antlers into decor, or simply using muted, soft ivory as a palette base. Raw ceramics vessels for flowers or candles, bone china, rough stucco, and hand crafted paper Build on that base with neutral colors to create depth. Worn wood and aged vintage pieces add texture – again, rust can be interpreted literally in the setting and decor, or brought into the design through warm, earthy tones. Woven chargers at each place setting, centerpieces of foraged branches and fallen leaves, and bronze accents will perfectly capture the right hue.
