Tuesdays are for Mood Boards....Summer or Fall?

As we are leaving August behind and entering into September, the East Coast is at an oppressive 90 degrees with the possibility of a hurricane named Earl who seems to be quickly making his way up the coast. The heat doesn't affect me much as I am by no means a Fall and Winter girl..Give me the Spring and Summer any day! Yet I have found that it can be extremely tough on the September bride and groom. Technically it's not Fall till the 21st of September, so what's a couple to do? I say marry the colors of the Fall and Summer palettes and you will be golden. For instance, by taking a summer hue such as Robin's Egg Blue and mixing it with a Rust Orange from Fall, you will have a combination that is both airy and rich. By mixing textures such as a Rust Orange Satin and a Robin's Egg Velvet you have brought it just one step further.

I can't think of anything more luxurious than soft hued velvets and satins.

Now for that pesky hurricane....
