Hmm, I’m never very good about this, but what about using a more turquoise-y blue, and doing that with black? Kind of like this inspiration board. 

Or, you could do the same colors as you had planned, but maybe with some pops of yellow?

I really like the idea of combining industrial with winter wonderland, there are a lot of unique possibilities with that! My first thought, looking at your space, is that a deep, bold navy, indigo, or burgundy would bridge the gap between industrial materials and natural, softer elements. Those colors are a bit heavier and metropolitan, but still suit a winter palette. Lots of metallics too, to combine twinkling lights with sparkling snow. I can see that space really sparkling. 🙂

I totally think you can still do this but I would skip fluffy flowers and whimsical decor and go for a more sleek look.  Silver and gold are very modern and I think blue can be too as long as it has a less baby-blue tone and is more of a deeper blue with a hint of grey.

Maybe instead of a “winter wonderland” think of it as a “frosted affair”. 

And we are cake twins!

I think if you did jewel tones with either the navy or a deep turquoise and then deep purples, red and golds…it would look awesome!

Chocolate brown and tiffany blue look amazing together.  i think the chocolate will keep it mordern and grounded with your venue but the blue will actually give you a feminine touch.  as far as theme, i think these colors (with your modern venue in mind) would be great with geometrics with soft edges.

I agree with still going with your original theme and just “alter” it to fit your space. Like silver is VERY classy and beautiful, maybe a richer blue would go great I think, like Navy or royal blue! Tulle is REALLY cheap, and you could run it across the top of that space and that would REALLY soften the look and go well with that theme!

Or maybe royal blue, gray, ivory and champagne? That would be beautiful and very regal.

Hi,

I agree with KT, that you can go with your original vision, with tulle to soften up the place.  I like the blue you picked, and the softness of yellow-gold candlelight-maybe tie in silver rounded candleholders to tie in with the modern lights.  If you do the twigs if golden will give it a modern touch and give it a nice warm touch-so it’s not too cold.  Maybe to soften the white bricks you could use blue in some way-more tulle or paper flowers attached, or strung down or across the wall?  I think you could do a nice blend of soft and modern!  I think you could really make it great!

Eep!  When I first saw texaslawgirl’s first color post, I had to do a double take because it’s really similar to mine.  We don’t have the same sort of space as OP at all, but in my winter wedding we’re using navy blue, lavender, ice blue, ivory, and gold.  I think your vision sounds really cool for your industrial-type space.  It’s a really interesting contrast.
