I was so amazed by how much I loved the look of Carriage Hall last week when we dressed the room for Laura and Gary’s wedding with white wedding chair covers and silver sashes. I usually love colour and lots of it, but I felt the need to search out some inspirational images to reflect the simplicity of a monochrome colour scheme with shades and tones of whites and silvers.
You can achieve lots of textural interest by playing around with the surface sheen of different elements, the most obvious one is matt and shine contrasts. Pearlescent and patina surfaces can add luxury to a very simple yet sophisticated colour palette. Consider the texture and volume you choose for your floral arrangements, your wedding cake can be elegant and refined with little detail or dramatic in terms of how 3 dimensional it is decorated. Lots to play around with when just using a ‘white’ colour theme. Enjoy.
