Guest Post: Merci New York!

Hello, I’m Jacqueline from Merci New York and I’m thrilled to guest post on Weddings Fresh today. Dani has asked me to share some holiday inspiration with you, and though aqua and red has trended for quite some time, I just adore its versatility.

During the holidays, crisp turquoise works wonderfully against cranberry red, imparting a bit of mid-century nostalgia into, well, everyone’s favorite season to be nostalgic. Instantly, the winter chill is lifted and we feel warm, cozied and content… Yet if we fast-forward halfway into the New Year, the same palette is once again relative-- Cranberry brightens to coral, turquoise transitions to a lighter sky… and the effect of contrast remains simply stunning. Vibrant red and cool blue are truly a universal pairing for any season.

Merry Christmas and warmest wishes for a wonderful 2010!
