accent accord

Let’s talk fashion for a second. So, you’re flipping through the pages of Vogue trying to stay up to date on what’s hot and what’s not.  As you turn the final page, one word comes to mind: accents.  A cream-colored blouse with tiny red buttons paired with a pair of blue jeans and crimson shoes.   A flowing white robe peppered with soft blue flowers and matched with a blue handbag. The legendary combo of blacks and whites that dance and play together in perfect harmony.

Each of these gorgeous getups emphasizes bold colors while downplaying neutral colors in order to create a contrast that boils down to sweet, sweet eye candy.


Lily Collins looks ravishing in a Dolce & Gabbana dress, Brian Atwood shoes, and ELAHN Jewels jewelry at the opening of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones opening in Madrid.  A deep black subdues the honey mustard yellow and bright red flowers that accent her dress.

Accent accord applies just as readily to your wedding ceremony and reception as it does to any fashion designer’s blueprint.  Most brides choose 2 to 3 different colors that serve as a theme. Brides can combine anything from warm and warm colors (burnt orange and wine) to cold and cold shades (icy blue and deep purple) to warm and cold tones (mint green and coral).  These colors are interlaced with other neutral tones to create an elegant look that captures your guests attention without overstimulating the eye.

Graceful Designs has perfected the art of highlighting your chosen colors in a graceful way. Check out the photos below from some of our events!

A fuschia-tinted pink and a summery orange accented this lovely brides special day.  Graceful Designs wove silvers, crystals and whites into the two colors for stability and dramatic effect each time an orange or pink flower flaunted its haughty colors. The wine colored table cloth chosen for the reception tables stayed true to the fuschia roses without being overly bright.
