Today’s inspiration mood board embraces the festive season but there is no tinsel and fairy lights here; instead we are looking to nature and the elements for a rustic yuletide interpretation.  Dream of spending Christmas in a remote log cabin, long to throw a party at this time of year without all the glitz or love the idea of planning a winter wedding with a twist?  Then this style is the perfect look for you…

This look is all about embracing the winter woodland and the great outdoors in its rawest form; make an advent calendar out of a silver birch branch, create decorations from twigs, dried leaves and white berries and instead of a perfectly proportioned tree, bring in a rough fir cutting to prop up in the corner of your room.

To strike the perfect balance between rough and luxe, opt for a warm palette of grey tones, ranging from dove to slate.  Mixing in different textures and luxurious materials like alpaca wool, suede and mercuried silver decor pieces will ensure your look remains rustic yet soft.

This style is certainly going to be inspiring my Christmas look this year, what about you?

Loving all the pastel popping up on the runways. It doesn't have to be sugary sweet it's all in the application. #wedding
Sometimes we just need a little reminder. We're definitely dreamers and proud of being so, constantly thinking up new and better ways of doing things, thinking about how we can improve & what we want to achieve. Tag a friend who needs reminding of this. 👇
Oh @Dior how we love thee. Industrial scaffolding contrasted with delicate pastel pink & shimmering mirrored walls. So inspiring
Working on something a little different in the studio currently. Incorporating the family tartan of one of our #wedding grooms and the brides love of fresh green.
Gamechanger! @hemsleyhemsley #healthyliving #hemsleyhemsley #spiralizer
So I'm honoured to have been nominated for the #20BeautifulWomen challenge, but being the inquisitive creature I am I wanted to understand what it was for & how it started but it seems it's a bit of a mystery. Maybe something to do with the book by Saba Tekle via @huffingtonpost or simply to celebrate women who are beautiful inside and out: visionary, kind, inspiring and empowering women. So yeah I'm all up for that. Author of said book defines a beautiful woman as this: "A beautiful woman shares her story so other women won't feel alone. A beautiful woman is peaceful: she has made peace with her past. A beautiful woman is passionate: she is on fire with a strong desire to change the world. A beautiful woman is purposeful: she knows why she was born and does what she was created here to do. Be beautiful." My 20 beautiful & inspirational ladies are all tagged in - I tried to cheat and add more but it won't let me!
Could not be more excited for my gorgeous client #augustbride #Repost @object_style with @repostapp.

We're talking heavenly handwriting on the blog currently & lusting after this @urbanic hand-lettering card printed in copper foil on a moody grey stock. --- In an increasingly digital era, it’s refreshing to see talented designers perfecting this age-old tradition with a modern twist. Combining modern printing techniques with the elegance and class of this most stylistic art form.
Drink it all in: I try to live relatively healthy and know one of the very best things I can do for body and mind is to drink plenty of water. Bought myself a pretty jug to sit on my desk to remind me to drink more, I aim for 4-5 of these per day. It's a small goal but the difference is huge, less bloating, clear skin & a clarity of mind that's unbelievable. What are your health goals this year? Tag yourself in and share....
