Good morning folks,
Happy Monday from all here at Pocketful of Dreams. Wow what a week this is going to be, as you read this I am ensconced in a top-secret location working on an epic project with a crack team of creatives. Honestly, I cannot even begin to tell you how exciting it is and I hope to share the fruits of our labour sometime in the future, for now it remains under wraps until the big reveal.
I’m also working on something else, something that is a little change from the norm for Pocketful of Dreams, another project that is equally exciting and terrifying all at once. You know what they say though, “if your dreams don’t scare you they’re not big enough”. Well this is a dream I have had for quite some time and I am so proud to say I’m now making it happen. Look out very, very soon for a little peek into what I hope will be a rewarding and fulfilling project, it just may interest some of you lovely readers.
On the blog we have Vicki popping along this afternoon to chat about what it means to dress for yourself and the signals our clothing sends out to the world, so please do pop back later today and join in what I’m sure will be an interesting discussion. We have plenty more party-planning ideas and trends up our sleeves as well two fabulous real weddings and more from Vicki on her own wedding planning journey.
So it is mood board Monday right? And this week I have a corker to share which is actually a little preview of something, exactly what I’m not going to divulge just yet.
I’ve said it before that creative event design, and in particular wedding design, for me is all about taking influence and inspiration from the world around me. As a designer I don’t just look at wedding trends to create a concept for my clients, but at all forms of design from graphics, to textiles, architecture to art.
I want to know what the key trends are across the entire artistic spectrum so I may use these influences in my designs. It’s something that I love to do, to absorb and feel inspired by great design.
One current micro-trend in design is for simple and strong graphical patterns that combine straight edges and angular forms. The use of geometric shapes such as diamonds, triangles, hexagons, circles and squares creates a really bold and confident style that has such a cool edge to it, and I for one am hooked. Slightly Bauhaus in it’s aesthetic, slightly modernistic, geometrics are definitely stylish, cool and quirky.

So boys and girls, please do tell me as I would really LOVE your feedback on this one. What do you think of geometric patterns in design, love or loathe? What do you think when you look at this moodboard? How does it make you feel? o on hit m with some words, I’d be so grateful and it would help me out with that exciting project I’ll be letting you in on very soon.
I’m most definitely in the love camp.
