Leona Morelock is the curator of our Fall 2018 Collection. We’re excited to make her collection available to you for the fall season. The way she took a slight spin on classic fall design - using pumpkins in a variety of colors, lots of natural and metal element - has us ready for cool nights inside by the fire or out on our patio lit by the warm glow of a candle.
Learn about Leona and her style in her guest blog post below.
First, let me introduce myself, my name is Leona Morelock and I own my own design company. I have been a wedding planner/designer/producer since 2003 (don’t try to calculate my age!). For the last few years, however, I have been specializing in styled wedding editorial pieces and love that side of the wedding world.
Transparency time, I started weddings when I was 24 and am now 39. Over the past fifteen years, just like everything, the wedding world has transformed and evolved. Each year brings its own new trends, colors, gowns and the ways people celebrate their big day.
My own style has also evolved but I like to think that there are core aspects about my style that will never change.
- I have always been drawn to classic and timeless looks. I like to incorporate the new trends while remaining true to my main esthetic.
- I have always loved greenery and the elegance it can add in unexpected ways. Add in some white lush flowers and you had me at hello! So it didn’t surprise me that greenery was the color of the year in 2017!
My favorite parts about styling a reception are the tables. Loving one classically built and the less is more theories are what I usually go by. If not less than I love abundance. Make sense?
I just am not a middle person, it’s either simple or lush!
Candles are the most beautiful light that you can add and who doesn’t look good in candlelight?! Every wedding table I’ve ever designed, always has candles.
Let’s get away from weddings for a second. I am a homebody through and through. If I got stuck in my home from a snowstorm I would be totally fine! My home is my retreat and there is nothing I love more than making our home the best it can be for my husband and son. I want it to be warm, inviting and a safe place for all.
Again, candlelight brings a warm feeling and has the power to really change a room. Do you agree? I don’t know what it is about that small flame that brings us together.
With fall approaching Creative Candles has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to bring just the right color combination for YOU and your home. When thinking about fall the images of orange and pumpkins come to mind. What about taking a different approach? Remain classic to your style while incorporating some new ideas. If you haven’t already you will see that copper is definitely a hot color this year (metallics have always been a favorite and look great when mixed).
Debuting this season’s collection we introduce you to Navy Blue, Café Au Lait and Copper. The copper with it’s orange hue and café au lait remain classic while adding in Navy Blue is just the color we need.
For added touches, I still love my pumpkins but choose to spray paint them so they will seamlessly fit in. Adding some pears and acorns I love how everything is coming together.
Tell me, what is your favorite part about fall? Which room do you love decorating for each season?
