Midsummer Night's Dream: White+Gold
While my tastes tend to run in the modern, minimalist vein, today I took a detour to recreate the modern fairytale. Take Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, and subtract the traditional brocades and dark colors like deep greens, purples, burgundy. My take is strictly gold and white. Think escort cards mounted on matte gold tree branches, a wedding cake topped with a gold leaf monogram, the bride in a gold-accented dress, and gold filigree earrings. Magical.
