As the ancient times evolved so did the Greeks & the Romans with their quest for knowledge, democracy, and beautiful ornate architecture and decor. This was our inspiration for the 2nd installment of our Art History for Brides series for Style Unveiled. We were so excited for this installment! With my huge obsession with architecture and their awe inspiring level of ornate detail, this era in civilization created so many forms of beauty out of marble and stone that would be seemingly impossible at those times. This combined with their love and respect for the Gods, including Aphrodite, made for an epically romantic era.

We wanted to showcase the level of design and scholastic growth made by this era by focusing on bold designs, beautiful artisanal works and books with the classic words of the fabled tales of the Gods.

I love the combination of white and rich creamy vanilla, so many people feel the need to chose one or another as a palette base to start off but they compliment each other so beautifully! I also wanted to bring in soft periwinkle, rich cobalt blue and cool sea glass to off set the bright plaster whites.

Make sure to check out Style Unveiled’s blog for the full Greco Roman post coming later this week!
