The Modern Bohemian: Batik Blue, Wood Accents + An Industrial Warehouse

Refined Bohemian Inspiration

Have you heard of batik? We’ve been seeing it appear in the wedding scene lately, and definitely in the (more boho) home décor spheres. Batik is a actually a wax-resist dyeing process that originated in Bali (there’s a LONG history here) and with such cool patterns, it comes as no surprise to us that it’s coming into vogue!

When Laura of Ashton Events was styling today’s editorial for Nuage Designsfeaturing three of their new linens (Indigo Batik, Mauve Velutto, and Floral Monet napkins) she was immediately smitten over the Indigo Batik linen! So much so, that it served as the focal point! She tells us: The chambray texture of the Indigo Batik was beautiful, and we wanted to bring romance and formality to an otherwise casual linen. We found the look landing between both modern elegance and bohemian —which was unexpected, but totally worked with the industrial warehouse space at Haus 820! By incorporating terra cotta and leather details, we kept the textures natural.

We have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more batik blue patterns in the near future… Want to see why? Let’s peek at the photos snapped by Justin DeMutiis!

Pulling in that indigo blue for the envelopes, Eleven Note created a darling invitation suite.

Ashton Events brought in the pale pinks, the greenery of the eucalyptus, and then that striking indigo blue ribbon — tying the color palette together perfectly.

To round out the boho elegance, the team photographed this editorial inside Haus 820, a brand new industrial warehouse venue in Central Florida.

Isn’t the groom’s attire SO sharp?! We dig the suspenders from Boondock Studios, and the way they match the color of his shoes!

How we ADORE a space with white brick walls, and all the many ways you can dress it up!

How much fun is that backdrop created with pieces from Revel and Wish Rents?! The way the gold foil shines… it’s a stunning accent, while allowing the couple to be the center of attention.

The Tablescape

Laura of Ashton Events shares: We loved the kaleidoscope of pastel colors for the napkins, and wanted to provide a lush, floral-heavy design for the blank space.

We seriously cannot get over those florals + the gorgeous Indigo Batik tablecloth from Nuage Designs!

We also wanted to bring focus to the décor of the reception table. We created three different arrangements of single color blooms and lush foliage. Then, the center runner of blooms showed the mix! It reminded us of the floral napkins.

Dig this tablescape as much as us? Here are a few pieces you can use to create a similar look:

We think this look could work for a bridal shower, wedding, birthday party, summer soirée… so many different combinations and ideas come to mind!

Last, but certainly not least, a simple + sweet touch of elegance, in the form of a cake from Fresco’s!

With all the Old World-inspired touches + the abundance of florals — we could see this sort of look serving as a starting point for SO many couples! A huge thank you to the talented team behind this editorial!
