Spring Color

Hi all! Paige here! I am headed back from Louisville where 8 of us girls attended the Kentucky Derby. My friends Jane and Marie planned the trip to help their mom with her bucket list. So we called the trip “Janie’s bucket list trip!”. We headed up via a large RV on Thursday with our fearless driver Edwin. Attending the derby is a colorful experience in more ways than one! So I thought I would assemble some color inspiration from the most colorful place I have been in years.

After all that color… How can you not want a touch of pink, aqua, yellow, green or blue… I am thinking about my master bedroom…

P.S. this week we start installing the Southern Living Idea House… Exciting!!

Tangerine

The 2012 Pantone color of the year is Tangerine.  Click {here} to find out more.  I love to read about the color of the year then see it show it in fashion and home decor.  Sometimes the color of the year is not my favorite color but this year we were excited!  We are working on a project right now with Tangerine in the living space.

 

We love the Kelly Werstler fabric Trellis by Schumacher…. don’t you?  This is our first time using it in the “tangerine” color.

In the same room we are using this tangerine stripe (these fabrics with be mixed with linen and white)

The home in Alys Beach will be finished in about a month.  We will show you the finished product after the install!

Here is another tangerine pallette that is pretty… not for any particular project.  It is just a nice start to a room.

All of this makes me want a tangerine swimsuit for the beach… maybe while I am wearing it I can drink a drink that fits the color….

Doesn’t this color just make you smile?

Happy Monday!

XO,

Paige

 

Saffron

We love Saffron.  It is a great color for fall.  Here are a few of our favorite things in saffron.

This barn door is from the Southern Living Idea House 2009 that we designed in Cinnamon Shore, Texas.  The color was perfect with the Dwell Studio bedding we used in this 2nd Master Bedroom.

We love this lamp.  It adds the perfect amount of color to a room.  The height and the shape of the lamp is great in so many designs.  In our designs we like to mix lamps with a more modern design with antiques and vintage pieces. 

I just bought this cardigan from Anthro.  I can not wait to wear it this fall.  I have a feeling it will be one of those items I wear toooo much.

Have a great Monday!

XO,

Paige

P.S.  Today is Doug’s birthday!  Happy Birthday Doug!
