Summer in Classic Red, White and Blue!

Summer is here and with it is bright color all around us! With clambakes, picnics and Fourth of July on the horizon, we’ve got red, white and blue particularly on the mind. If you’re looking to build that seasonal color palette in to your next event, we’ve got some playful ways to do it, like these fun bold prints here. So whether you’re going traditional or a little more whimsical, scroll through to see more…

For a classic Hamptons-inspired wedding look, start with a blue and white palette with scattered pops of red in the details. We love combining stripes of different widths with our toile Jamestown print linen to give things an unconventional twist!

If you’re celebrating the bride or groom-to- be poolside this summer, think bright shades of blue and red! We love setting the fun with our Calypso Lalo print and throwing in some bold pillows to lounge on all weekend.

For the quintessentially American Fourth of July party, go all out on Red, White and Blue! Try geometric Navy & White patterns, like our Navy Khalo, for guest tables and bright apple red solids, like our Red Oxford, for buffets. It’ll have people seeing fireworks!

So no matter what you’re celebrating this summer, play around with red, white and blue for your design and we think your party will be an instant success!

Susan & Chris’s Wedding – Middleburg, VA.

Spring, the time for love and new beginnings: the snow is gone and the flowers are blooming. The sun shines bright and the days begin to feel longer. There is nothing that we love more than a beautiful Spring wedding, especially when it playfully engages with the natural seasonal elements.

Such is the case in Susan & Chris’s wedding in Middleburg, Virginia. This stunning wedding was hosted at the quaint Goodstone Inn & Restaurant and was carefully executed by the amazing Lauryn Prattes. Rustic and rural by nature, this boho chic wedding filled us with inspiration while reminding us to preserve our natural environments as we celebrate Earth Day 2015 and continue to make strides to reduce our carbon footprint at Nuage.
