Mood Board #104: Persephone
By Lauren Kathryn on Mar 4, 2013 at 5:01 am in Vintage and Rustic
I have to confess that I’ve never liked pink and purple together. The color combination has always reminded me of a My Little Pony or a saccharine Hallmark card, and I usually cringe at the sight of it. However, when I stumbled across this eye-poppingly beautiful bouquet that Kelly Oshiro designed using in-bud peonies, fronds of fragrant lilac, and freshly cut tulips, it took only a fraction of a second for me to change my mind. “I thought of this look as ‘Persephone,’ very spring-inspired,” Kelly said. And, indeed, I can’t imagine a more fitting look for the goddess of springtime—or for any romantically minded spring bride.
