A touch of GOLD

15 Sep

Hello Glamourites,

I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend and found time for some relaxation today! Grab some inspiration from this post and throw together a little gathering for this evening. My main inspiration when planning a party comes from having a theme of some sort to bring everything together, from the decor to the type of food served. However when you are having some people over for a casual dinner party or drinks on a Thursday, it’s a lot of effort to go all out last minute, but it’s still nice to have little touches to make the evening special and create flow. One example that is easy is to pick one colour to coordinate everything with: napkins, flowers, table decor ect… Now of course I love anything sparkly or bright so naturally I love the colour gold; it adds some shine to the room and makes your guest feel like they are being spoiled. These pictures are examples of some straightforward tips that can be done last minute! xx Glamour Planner

Take some streamers from your cupboard or run to the dollar store, cut the sides of the streamers and twist them as they hang. The simplest way to transform a wall for a party time! c6ae2d5f55abf7ea8cdafd06d161ceb8

Serving up some champagne or sparkling wine? Dip the glasses in eatable gold glitter. 8306396e524ca10e2e2505be0f178a93

Creating signs for a buffet table or snack table adds an extra level of sophistication, it shows you took the time. Take the sign and pop it in a little frame for a professional look. b0fa1b6f8fef0d97faad40b641ca1c89

Take your old wooden candle holders or some cheapies and add some glitter, a quick DIY project! efd752d694065c78001b35a8eed3efc5

The simplicity of this table I adore. Adding two tone table cloths also adds interest and something as simple of a hanging feature above the table completes the table setup. 11edad85e33a25420af3b964f8ccc554

I just enjoy this 🙂 f82af8a0f9ea5de195e72a4904b0c015

Back to nature

13 Sep

Hi Glamourites,

It seems when fall comes around I am drawn again to natural tones, materials and fabrics for in my designs, my apartment and tastes. With the changing of the season colours start to appear in the trees and the warmth of orange and reds brighting up the streets. The autumn time allows for nature to be featured more than usual with such activities; pumpkin carving, apple picking, fire crackling and leafs for decor. So why not use natural wood all year long in your home to be a main focus in the design or function. These pictures highlight the beauty of wood in its natural element while fitting into different home styles and creating contrast. Hope everyone is transiting into fall better than I am xx Glamour Planner

This simple linear wood table is an ideal space for all uses and is set off ideally by the brick wall in the background. 79a95a8d076bf8b506f6da6a55570c25

I love how the wood bar top has been left natural at the ends and the shape curves as it instinctively would.  78b22eebba3e9ece4f391a2fbd711dbe

These puzzle piece like mats are very unique as you can create them as small or large you need for the function while creating a table interest. f8f03d1b8682740d836e0992cd8d2b8c

 

This space is a perfect example of how it is possible to mix the natural wood with soft fabrics and works well. 562907c718646adf31ec6d5a256555ce

I enjoy this whole bathroom vanity for the rustic feel and the bold wood mirror frames makes the statement in the space. 460ec9e0ede08b0575d59a9abd6eb611
