ON TREND: SIMPLY SHEER
One of our favorite trends this season is using sheer fabrics and decor components to create breathtaking looks in event design. Intricate embroidery, delicate applique, and chiffon ruffles can create a romantic vibe and some seriously stunning tablescapes. While creamy sheers have always been trending in bridal design, this year more than ever, transparency is everything. So, yes, keep on using romantic sheers for all your brides. But, also consider adding translucent fabrics to corporate events, adding an unexpected touch of whimsy to your next affair.
OUR INTERPRETATION: MOSAIC’S TRANSPARENT LINENS
When we went to market for our Spring/Summer 2018 collections, we fell in love with so many fabrics that were created with tulle, chiffon and gauze. Many of these fabrics were detailed with stitching, embroidery and lacey components. Now, with spring in the air, we are already watching these light and airy fabrics being incorporated into events across the country. Whether utilizing neutral palettes of cream and blush, or looking for some hip transparent fabrics that incorporate color and shine, we are ready to take on transparency!
GET CREATIVE: 3 WAYS TO DESIGN WITH A SHEER FOUNDATION
Using sheer overlays is easy when working on a palette that is tone on tone. Blush, cashmere, ivory and soft neutral tones always look gorgeous with sheer embroidered toppers. We love us some good romantic design! But why not consider using a contrasting color beneath the sheer topper to really add some drama? Pull in dirty earthen tones to play up an organic gauze weave. And, don’t forget to add some flowing chair treatments, linens or decor accents to utilize trending fringe, feathers and ruffles in your design. Check out a few of our favorite ways to design with transparent fabrics in the inspiration stories below.
SANTA FE SHINE: EARTHY GAUZE HUES
We love how the terracotta, ochre and chocolate accents in this striped gauze overlay create a subtle take on transparency. These earthen tones created from sunset hues remind us of the southwest, and would be perfect for a outdoor soiree nestled into a mountain setting at dusk. Yes please!
SHEER LOVE: PETAL MAGIC
With so many new gorgeous bridal sheers this season, we went nuts for this ivory leather petal fabric. Playful, flirting and fun, this overlay makes the perfect statement for that girlie-girlie bride who wants her big day to be filled with romance and radiance. Want to add a hint of color? Pump up the tones with a sagey green under cloth and keep the vibe soft and sweet.
PRISMS OF LIGHT: BOLD COLORS & STRIKING CONTRAST
Were so excited to feature this new color way of our ever popular Palace line. The navy tones in Midnight Palace create some seriously striking looks. Of course this overlay pairs well with navy, and cool shades of blue and cream. But why not consider contrasting it with bold bright hues as well? We are digging the variety of effects this cloth can conjure up- and in doing so should become a huge crowd pleaser in corporate events and private affairs alike.
