Trends 2014 – Cayenne

1. Bridesmaid Dresses 2. Sabina – for The Ink Nest 3. Wedding paper Divas 4. Shoes 5. Flowers

The next color we are focusing on from Pantone’s Fashion Spring 2014 Color Report is Cayenne. Pantone defines Cayenne as “a high-pitched red, that adds a dash of spicy heat to neutrals.” It’s bold, warm, romantic and makes a strong statement.

Cayenne adds instant warmth and cheerfulness when used in fashion, design or interiors. It pairs well with similar hues such as orange or peach, but also adds a bit of whimsy if paired with a minty green.

Cayenne is not for the timid. Now tell me, are you bold enough to use it?

Inspiration Corner – Artcadia

Artcadia is a stationery and design studio based in Shrewsbury, UK created by designer Vici-Jane Kohring and her husband Richard Kohring. This talented couple creates high quality wedding invitations and branding designs.

Aside from their regular shop, they recently opened a Christmas pop-up shop – what a great idea! I was surprised and delighted by the combination of my Geometric Birds with the Winter Foliage set. I wouldn’t imagine these two sets can be matched so well.

I also spotted some of the Blog Elements by Rebekka on their luxe magnets.

I am really impressed with the taste level and creativity of the Artcadia duo. If you are looking to buy some great stationery and other pretty designs with our images, visit their website!

Inspiration Corner – Elli

Elli is a boutique design studio based in Portland, Oregon. They create high quality stationery and greeting cards.

I was happy to spot one of my sets used in their recent greeting cards – the Winter Foliage. It is astonishing how many designs they have created, using this one set alone. Great team of designers! I must say, this is my favourite way of having our graphics implemented – to see them used in a creative, interesting way – changed colours, drawings arranged with imagination.

Inspiration Corner – Lovely Silhouette Keepsakes

I know, another feature of the Flower Monograms in use. I am delighted to see them in something different than wedding invites. These lovely silhouettes I found in the Simply Silhouettes’ Etsy Shop. This is such a cute idea and I love the vintage frames matching the colours of the wreaths.

The monthly sets have also nice wreaths that can be used to personalise silhouettes wall art.


Inspiration Corner – Pretty Smitten

There is something very charming about these floral coasters, created with the Ranunculus set. I like the colors that Elizabeth, from Pretty Smitten, chose for these. These colors have completely transformed the flowers. They look fresh and romantic, maybe the best coloring of the Ranunculus set, that I have seen. I would love to have such coasters and maybe pretty pillow cases and other home decor with this pattern.
