Style Board Study: Mysterious Romance

One of the past students of  the Smart Creative Style course was Erica Campanella. I wanted to show you a glimpse of her style boards and images. They had such a  sense of story in them. When she started compiling them week after week, I felt like I had walked into Masterpiece Theatre  miniseries. It was fun to watch every board evolve over the course! Take a look and see what I mean.

Her nature board was very strong. Not only did she have a strong sense of a color palette in her nature board but she was drawn to moody lighting from candles to stars, to the way light shone through forest trees.

Her interiors board had  a deeply romantic feel it. There was a coziness to all of  them along with a classic English sensibility with the use of plaids and rich wood. These interiors read romantic and masculine at the same time. I loved that she found gorgeous camp inspired interiors.


All these fed perfectly into her fashion board. You can see her choices revolved around plaid ( a trend that is making a big resurgence) Yet her take on plaid  felt  classic and timeless,  it went well well along with the soft complicated ruffling techniques of her more feminine choices. She also had several pins of rugged hip footwear on her board, making her own unique statement.

Her imagery was filled with lush mossy green landscapes, starry night skies, romantic camp like interiors and thick warm wool plaid. There is a sense of dark rich romance throughout her look. This is just a SMALL look at what we compile in the Smart Creative Style e-course!

I just saw that Erica was written up in the Providence Journal ( so fabulous for her!!!) and I was amazed at how the photograph of her was just so fitting. I pulled images from her board and it shows us  how we are all drawn to imagery,  moods and that we all have a unique story to tell visually.
