SURPRISE! Happy Tuesday! I have a gift for you today… an inspiration board! Aren’t you excited?! ;) I’m so sorry for it taking forever between inspiration boards. I’ve pretty much been concentrating on one specific design per month and then creating photo shoots to bring them to life. Which in turn means that I eat, sleep and breathe whatever my inspiration is for the month. Literally. I dream it. Lame, I know, but I suppose it’s one of the “job hazards” of being a blogger! Well needless to say, this month my inspiration has bee this modern, chic look using black and taupe! Take a look…

For this modern chic design, I’m envisioning a glossy black combined with a matte taupe, a simplistic yet chic candlescape on the table, and interesting details. Annnnnd I just realized that this would be an awesome color scheme for decorating for Halloween, if you wanted to go the chic route. Well, at least I’m keeping it somewhat seasonal, right?

Honestly, this black and taupe color combination has been in the back of my mind for months, and I’m excited to finally see it turned to reality! That’s all I can say about it right now, but just know that you’ll be able to see the product in about December (which by the way will be here before we know it)! :)

So what do you think of the black and taupe? I can’t quite decide on the metal accent that should go with it- what do you think? Gold or silver? Help me decide! :)

    love this colors! the black gown is amazing. both metal accents would make a great combination for this, but if we have to choose one, it would be silver…

    That black and white and kraft paper invitation is one of my ultimate favorites! And this is one of my favorite palettes, too. I can’t wait to see it come to life! and about gold or silver… I guess I’d say Gold since it’s always my choice over silver. Either would look great but I think Gold would help to give it that soft glow. :)

    Gold for sure! I think it would warm it up just the right amount, yet keep that modern, chic look you’re going for. :)

    Gold would be a wonderful choice to celebrate the tones of the fall season! Glamorous gold accents would really enhance the warmth of the flames in the candlescape:)

    Love this! These colors ooze sexiness! P.s. i say gold!

    I really LOVE these color scheme. I’ve always been a fan of black, but after seeing Vera’s new dress line that is all black and taupe, I’m in love! I wouldn’t have ever thought I’d be ok with a black wedding dress. Leave it to Vera to change me :)
