seeds of inspiration--pimlico magazine

pimlico magazine is a new (it will launch in about a month!) online magazine dedicated  to "artful celebrations and inspired gift giving". 
it is the brain-child of my friend, jen, (whom i collaborated with on this room), and her friend allison.
jen contacted me and asked me if i would be willing to pull together an inspiration plan for a summer get together that they would stage and photograph.

my first task was to pick some color inspiration, and so i looked through jessica's amazing selection of color inspiring "design seeds".  
i finally settled on this one:
(you can see more design seeds here.)
i loved the fresh, summery feel of the tomato hues, and the vibrant greens mixed with the deep peach and vivid red.

from there, i decided that i wanted something casual.
something fun.
something approachable.
my theme became "preppy rustic"...with stripes, rustic wood, peach flowers, and fresh tomatoes.

here are a few of my inspiration images:
