Look who is borrowing York’s wallpaper patterns to enhance this spring’s bridal fashions? None other than Vogue Sposa magazine, and just look at how lovely the glistening gown is against a backdrop of stylized Chinoiserie and sketchbook butterflies. And the blues… soft, glistening, floating and romantic. Blue is one of those special colors that works equally well on any bride or in any room of your home.
This silk gown, rich with slubs and a sheen that only silk provides, floats off the bride from a cinched and gathered waist accenting her lovely features. In keeping with the ancient silk theme is York’s Chinoiserie design (AP7419) from Ashford Silhouettes collection; its rich heritage interpreted from our archive into a modern masterpiece with rich color and the handpainted look of surface printing.
Soft as gossamer and the gentle flutter of butterfly wings, this Oscar de la Renta gown literally floats down the aisle; so blissful and serene. To capture the tranquility and beauty of the butterfly garden in your home, surround your walls with Ashford Silhouettes Scenic Vine pattern (AP7428), resplendent with hydrangeas, wisteria, dianthus, dragonflies and butterflies.
Lace, this year’s fantasy whether bridal or master bedroom, has an intricate beauty all its own. Textural, dimensional, dainty yet sophisticated, there’s no denying its elaborate beauty. Oscar de la Renta pairs a slender lace dress with layers of filmy blue chiffon in an overskirt, while York pairs a soft filmy blue floral motif with the texture of sculptured ink from Candice Olson, Shadow Flowers; the perfect marriage of heritage and contemporary design.
Brides are often referred to as ethereal, so great is their beauty in a bridal gown. Epitomizing the delicate otherworldly beauty of an ethereal bride, this Stella de Libero gown is truly breathtaking; soft, filmy layers of toile are fashioned into cascading roses gently trailing down the full skirt of the gown. For a romantic look in your home, surround your walls with Ron Redding’s Grace design (SX7701) from the Monogram 4th Edition collection. Softly pearled inks set the stage for a romantic flocked medallion that whispers romance to those who dwell there.
