Grey, Green & Silhouettes

My husband and I have been doing some redecorating in our bedroom with a color palette of grey and green. The colors looked so fantastic together, and I immediately thought of how this color combination could be used as inspiration for a wedding. Together, the colors come across as being very modern and sleek. To offset the look, add vintage-style silhouettes as motifs. The modern palette paired with vintage detailing results in a chic look for a young stylish couple.
