I recently got hooked on the ABC show Once Upon A Time (don’t judge me, I’m slightly embarrassed) so perhaps that’s to blame for my newfound winterwonderland, woodland creature, fairytale obsession. However, I’d bet money on it becoming super popular this season. If it doesn’t, go ahead and have a good laugh on my behalf. And don’t feel bad, because I’d laugh at myself too.
It’s a little bit of royalty meets rustic, you know, all the stuff that fairytales are made of. And here’s why it works: it takes ultra-traditional elements, for example, the vintage lines on that Queen Anne chair, but gives it a modern twist with the white paint. The crispness of the white makes those details really pop, especially when paired with the dark, rich color. Then you juxtapose the soft velvet with the rough and rugged reclaimed wood, and you have some serious textural eye candy. Ya dig? I dig.
I have this gorgeous stylized shoot with all of these elements created in my mind. Think all of that prettiness above presented as a tablescape in the snow in the middle of the woods (yo, Z Gallerie, need ideas for an upcoming catalog?). I’m probably doing a terrible job explaining it…I need to just sketch this bad boy. This photo is too good to simply sit in my brain.
Anyways, I’ve gone off on a complete tangent. So to wrap this post up, keep your eyes peeled this holiday season for jewel tones paired with this lovely combo, and let’s see how accurate my trend forecast is.
