We switched Our centerpiece idea!!

To something like this:

From something like this:

Very nice, but too simple and doesn't match our theme...

I am just SO excited! :)

So pretty and happy and Italian countryside-y

Just some google images, but I think it will all come together, I can't wait to see how things happen! :)

Help me with Red and Blue!

Is this not one of the most beautiful tablescapes you have ever seen?

Thinking about decor has been a lot of fun so far. We decided to go with Navy and Red as our accent colors after we chose the poet society duvet cover from Ralph Lauren.

As I have continued to shop for decor, it has been difficult to find settings that use those two colors but are not overly nautical or formal. We want things to be comfortable and welcoming but simple and coordinated at the same time.

Here are some of my favorite idea inspirations so far:

While the colors are not exactly what we are going for, I love the use of neutrals with bold colors and prints to add accent and character! :)

Simplistic yet so detailed, oh summer :)

Dinner party anyone? Again, simple, but enough to get thoughts rolling :)

And this! Oh my goodness, what is not to love! I want this room! Isn't this whole look just wonderful!

If you have any advice or pictures please help me and our soon to be little one bedroom apartment!!

I am now a regular frequenter of Houzz, but definitely do not want to get absorbed by decor, we have SO many more things to be excited about as newlyweds :)

The countdown continues and my patience wears down a little bit everyday. I can't wait for April 8th to come!
