Inspiration Board: Montevideo Red

Now continuing with our World Cup semi-finalist-inspired boards, here’s what I came up with for Uruguay. (Although after that hand ball, I considered boycotting this one in protest!) I wasn’t sure where to start, until I came across the gorgeous national flower, the ceibo (top right) and combined with the Uruguayan love of tango, I knew the colour had to be red. Add more local details – a stunning cathedral setting (Iglesia Matriz) and traditional alfajores biscuits for favours – and you have a palette that’s rich, sophisticated and passionate.

Top row (l-r): Couple with lantern; dress; alfajores; Iglesia Matriz; ceibo flowers
Row 2: Vintage car; bridesmaids; table setting; lemonade
Row 3: Tango couple; red glasses; Colonia del Sacramento street; shoes.
