Inspiration everywhere: Orange & gray kitchen

November 7, 2011

I think one of the first places to go for inspiration is your own home. You wouldn’t decorate with colors you weren’t drawn to so where better to turn when deciding your wedding palette? Above is a picture from my very own kitchen–we painted {OK, my husband painted} orange stripes on one wall and the rest of the kitchen in gray. Imagine if we used these two colors for our wedding…

Centerpiece via Style Me Pretty
Ribbon details via Style Me Pretty
Save the Date via Etsy

And perhaps my favorite idea…

Orange and gray can be used to achieve a variety of styles. Mute the colors for a more romantic, classic look, make them dark for a modern effect, or add to rustic elements. I love that, don’t you? And I love, love, love the idea of using fruit as decor {like oranges as centerpieces or seating cards} and don’t even get me started on ribbon streamers.

I hope you all have a wonderful, inspiration-filled week!

PS. What do you think of our kitchen? ๐Ÿ™‚

    OOoooo! Orange for a wedding! I like it! We are in the process of decorating our house and have been going towards charcoal gray as our neutral with green accents. I just may throw a little orange in there as a minor accent color for fun! We’ll see how it goes! ๐Ÿ™‚
