My smile gets a little wider any time we get to share some special tropical inspo, especially when it comes with an unexpected twist. Using lighter blush-tone pinks with lots of greenery in a warehouse-loft setting helped to balance a variety of styles. While the Pacific Northwest may be known for darker hues and natural rocky beauty, this team of vendors chose to inject some serious fun, color, and tropical influence for a look that leaves us totally inspired.
Ahh few places come close to rivaling the stunning beaches of Australia. The inspiration today comes from Tweed River Ancora’s white walls, painted brick, and marble bar make it the perfect blank slate for a custom, modern affair. Natural components, such as woven basket lights, help bring the beachy breeze indoors. If contemporary and stylish beach weddings are your thing, this one is a can’t miss!

You may be thinking to yourself, “shopping for wedding registries will be so overwhelming.” But the plain truth of the matter is that it doesn’t have to be. It’s 2018, and modern homeware brands like Crate and Barrel have set the bar too high to ignore. We noticed when they connected with top designers + local artisans to build a curated collection of goods. We did a double take when they extended a 10% discount to couples using a Crate and Barrel registry to use on their site and in stores for 6 months after their wedding date (*restrictions may apply). And we stopped in our tracks when they optimized the registry experience with features like their comprehensive app and Thank You Manager tool to keep track of who gifts you what.

As if that’s not enough, they’re dishing up a whole host of exclusive new benefits for couples who register with Crate and Barrel (*restrictions may apply). Including:

- $15 off a single tux rental at The Black Tux
- 15% off wedding invites from Paper Source

1. Beverage Tub | 2. The Newlywed Cookbook | 3. Emmett Bronze Taper Candle Holders | 4. Marble Wine Cooler | 5. Le Creuset Dutch Oven | 6. Globe String Lights | 7. Feast Platter | 8. Couture Copper Flatware Place Setting
Woah. We’re always attentive to gifts that keep on giving. Who isn’t?! What we love about these products we’ve rounded up are just how diverse they are. It was quite a challenge to assign them to a single style because it only requires a tweak of combinations to give a home or interior a different vibe. From the art deco style fan to the copper beverage tub to the contemporary elevated terrariums, details like these have style (and function!) written all over them.
