Paper Adore

Can I just say amazing? Created by Jane Schulak and taking place at the Louvre, this inspiring luncheon for 40 used paper in ways I've never seen.

Here's just a little snippet of the interview with from David Stark Sketchbook and Jane:

"I decided to make a paper luncheon for several reasons. First of all, it was a natural for the museum because they have the largest, oldest, and most comprehensive collection of paper and presses in the world. My objective was to introduce my friends to the museum and to try to get them engaged without overwhelming them.

It is easy to enjoy paper and to react to it because it is so pretty and pleasing to the eye. So I decided to find a new young French paper artist, Marianne Guely, and began working with her to come up with ways to reinterpret several ancient papers. The results were outstanding on so many levels because of Marianne’s talent.

Then, I chose a room in the Louvre that had fantastic and important architecture but could still serve as an excellent backdrop for the installation. It was a completely harmonious relationship between the space and the art; everything was high drama in a good way!

On the walls around the room were many examples of reinterpretations of old papers; I included by each piece a small card that explained where the inspiration came from. Opposite the Rue de Rivoli is the Tuilleries Garden; we opened all the doors as if the lunch was practically in the garden. It was visually mind blowing, so beautiful.

Incorporating Color

I'm often asked by many a bride on how to incorporate a bold color into their wedding without looking too trendy. Instead of including your color story in the bridesmaid dresses, linens, chair covers and everything in between, think of using a more restrained hand.

Case in point? This divine wedding from Colin Cowie that uses a bold splash of color in the bridesmaid dresses and the awe inspiring florals.

Beautiful isn't it?
