it begins

This is the week before I get married. Yes! It is finally here. I am excited about that, obvi, and about have some fab guest posts lined up for you this week.  We are starting with Tobe.  I sent my guest bloggers titles based on the overall theme, Wedded Bliss. I told Tobe her’s was “falling in love” and I adore her interpretation.  This lady is talented and sweet as pie.  I know, I met her at Alt.

Hello, Buckets and Bunches friends! Tobe from Because It’s Awesome here, super excited to be standing in for Chelsea during such an exciting time in her life! When Chelsea first asked me to do a post around the topic of falling in love, I couldn’t help but go straight to interiors (those of you that are familiar with my blog might have expected this). While my taste is varied to say the least, there is one particular style that always brings me home. Lately, I’ve been finding myself falling in love with modern earthy glam all over again.

The elements of this style are really quite simple.

Nuevo Estilo via Coco + Kelley

Some clean lines; acrylic, lucite and/or glass; crisp white to satisfy the modern.

Atlantis Home

Natural materials like stone, wood, horn or leather, and plenty of texture via grasscloth or jute to keep it earthy.

Elle Decor // Interior Design by Jackie Astier via Design Crisis

Round it out with luxe mirrored and metal elements, ornamental details, sumptuous colors and quite likely a bit of fur for an infusion of glamour.
