Black is back

20 Mar

Hi Glamourites!

In the interior design world black is back! Grey and shades will stay in the loop and still be seen but black is making a dramatic statement. 2014 is all about creating a shock factor as well as keeping things modern. Black does just this and along with crisp white fixtures creating a powerful space. Enjoy the inspiration pictures below! xx Glamour Planner

ALL blanc

23 Aug

Hello Glamourites,

Some of you have may already heard of an event called ‘Diner en blanc’ which originated 25 years ago in Paris. It is where people gather all dressed in white for a giant “chic picnic” where only the day before they have been advised of the secret location. Hundreds of people are invited and are expected to conduct themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette to enjoy this unique evening.

This event is held all over the world at different times and if you have a chance to attend, I would not turn it down! This all made me think of how fun it would be to hold your own “dinner en blanc” event or party (obviously not at that large scale). If you are wanting to throw a final summer party before August slips away, perhaps consider having an all white theme. Here are some more picture inspirations I found if this catches your eye. xx Glamour Planner

If you have a staircase like this or even a large lobby, tying balloons together into a tall tower gives a dramatic effect.  whiteballoonsSimple flowers or leaves that have been sprayed can be used for centrepieces at low cost.

Make it Unique

11 Aug

Hello Glamourites,

It has been a busy, busy week as I have been volunteering at a kid’s camp – lots of fun but very tiring. I am home now and ready to get back to writing some posts! I know people are always trying to come up with the next big trend or most unique aspect to their wedding. Here are some creative ideas (I thought) that are a little out of the norm and are fairly easy as well. Tell me your latest wedding inspiration xx Glamour Planner

Well first of all, this little boy is adorable, and how easy would it be make this heart-shaped chalkboard sign and write a simple phrase like this. Too cute to handle.

Good Morning Glamourites!

I must apologize about the delay in posting the last little while but life has gotten a little busy as it sometimes does. That’s just the way summer is!  It is also one of my favourite times of the year and that is why I like to experiment and be more daring in my fashion choices.  It somehow feels like it is appropriate to be wearing BRIGHT and exciting clothing! Here are some of my BOLD fashion inspiration pictures that will hopefully push you to try something new this season. xx Glamour Planner

This is screaming BEACH FUN. Colour, colour, colour, never too much I say!

THE outfit

15 Jul

Hello Glamourites,

After all this time I can’t believe I have yet to do a post on Weddings! So here it is, my first post related to my ultimate dream job -wedding planner. I thought to myself today what is more important than the bride’s wardrobe and how she looks on her wedding day….well nothing! This is dedicated to everything the bride  is wearing as well as her accessories. Enjoy xx

THE DRESS ~nothing can top this so we’ll start there..

This glam show-stopping gown is fit for a fairy queen. The intricate gems and beading on the bodice draws the eye upwards towards the bride’s face as well as creating a sleek cinched in waistline. The ballgown skirt makes this every girl’s dream dress.

weddingoutfit-dressDREAM TRAIN! Especially if you are having a simpler dress in the front or top portion, having a dramatic train is a gorgeous aspect. When walking down the aisle, this dress makes a real statement after you have passed them on your way to the altar. A ruffled train, almost mimicking the look of large rose petals, creates the ultimate drama!
weddingoutfit-dress2Another important item that you don’t want to overlook is the bouquet holder as it compliments the thought that has gone into the flowers themselves. This sparkly gem will show off the flowers and appear like glitter in the bride’s hands.
weddingoutfit-bouquetholderWe cannot of course forget about the shoes….after you have chosen your stunning, yet comfortable heels, it is fun to add a little pizzazz. These clip on broaches can be added on later for the ceremony if you have an alternate dress and want to show off the shoes!
weddingoutfit-heelsIf you are going with a more understated dress it is exciting to chose from the variety of fabulous veiling they now have available. This particular veil is interesting how it is bunched to one side and now balanced creating an alluring effect.

The DRAMA

3 Jul

Hello Glamourites!

I hope you all had an easy “hump day” Wednesday and excited for the downhill slide to the weekend! (I know I am) Yesterday I saw some very stunning and dramatic design photo’s and concepts. I think adding drama to a room or space is always a great aspect but having it throughout an entire house has to done in the right way or particular layout. These design choices I fell in love with and would love to incorporate them in my own place! Enjoy xx

This central hallway or lobby is UNBELIEVABLE, the combination of the vaulted ceiling, chandelier and continuing with the large window down to the floor detailing makes it.

The villa below, which is located in Lazio, Italy is amazing because of the balance and and central detailing making the initial visual that much more dramatic and eye catching.

The Unitarian Church located in Charleston, SC has such intricate ceiling detailing and along with the all white makes this 100% drama for the eyes!
