Shenandoah National Park, Luray VA Design Inspiration

shenandoah national park va wedding and event design inspiration

I am often asked how I come up with my design ideas and what do I use for design inspiration. Well, to be perfectly honest...everything. "There is beauty in everything, everyone, and everywhere." - Unknown. Over my life I have learned to be open to what's around and look at things in a new light, even things that I thought were once hideous. I look past my initial emotion and I see the time, the energy, the passion, and talent the artist had when creating it. Being a designer in the wedding and special occasions industry I do my best to always stay ahead of the trends and bring my clients something different, awe-inspring, in my designs  I routinely turn to fashion designers, other artists, home decor elements, and nature as everyday sources of inspiration. In fact, the other day I was strolling through my facebook newsfeed when I stumbled upon this picture.

This picture features Shenandoah National Park in Luray VA. I believe it was taken by the park ranger earlier last week. This picture shows the awesome power of nature and design inspiration. Just look at those colors! So rich, so vibrant, so emotion provoking. I saw this and instantly wanted to use this as the bases of a table design. I am loving those shades of blue, that pop of orange, and those hints of grays. Simply Stunning!
