Wedding Inspiration

Weddings are a great place to find design inspiration. Last weekend, at a high school friend’s wedding reception, I was totally inspired by the venue. The building, Hickory Street Annex, had gorgeous exposed wood rafters with steel beams, a wall full of windows that looked out at downtown Dallas , and beautiful, full curtains that framed the view. White Christmas lights were wrapped around the metal rafters, and white paper lanterns were strung across the space. The reception area was accented with pops of coral for the event, including flower arrangements and sashes on the folding wooden chairs. Although I wasn’t equipped with the right camera to capture photos of the space, I found a few on the venue’s website that capture the room in its full, unadorned glory:

You can see more pictures of the building on the Hickory Street Annex website. So, in the spirit of things industrial and bits of bright orange and pink, here are some inspiration photos, starting with 3 rooms that feature pops of orange, all from the amazing interior designer Tobi Fairley. I love how she combines shades of blue with orange and coral – for me, it’s a totally unexpected pairing, although I’m sure if I had any understanding of color theory it would make perfect sense.

An Edison industrial light pendant from Lowe’s – how amazing would these be over a kitchen island?

The Aiden Etagere from World Market (and it’s even on sale right now – still pricey, but a piece like this seems worth the extra $$ to me). I love the whole Aiden line – and even put together a mood board around the Aiden coffee table, which I’ll be sure to share soon. A girl can dream, right?

I love this floral pillow from Etsy seller PopOColor (how appropriate!). It would be perfect paired with some turquoise pillows in a geometric pattern, all on a neutral background like an off-white sofa.

Happy Tuesday, friends!
