Inspiration Board #21: French Countryside

May 4, 2009

The inspiration for this board came from the farm sink filled with lilacs by Miki Duisterhof. I just love the idea of pairing the purple lilacs with touches of orange to really make the colors pop. I picture this wedding taking place in the French countryside, with oodles of delicious bread, and the rustic, but elegant countryside to serve as the backdrop for the reception.
