Transitioning from one season to the next is always a pleasant and renewing experience for me. Each year I seem to add to or totally change my decor for each season. As each new season begins to approach I wait for some spark of inspiration to hit before I change up my decor. You’ll never believe where or how the spark happened for this season.
Sometimes it will be a beautiful arrangement of flowers inspiring me with their array of colors . . .
Sometimes it will be during my morning runs and observing an object in nature . . .
Other times it may be from a magazine, a picture, or a memory.
But this year it came as I was driving down the street one evening and noticed a sidewalk sale happening at one of my favorite local boutiques in town (Amy’s Boutique). Even driving, well I was the passenger, I spotted this colorful object in a basket. To my great surprise it was a beautiful woven rug, full of vibrant colors. As I laid it out my husband gave me a look, a big questioning look, (more like where in the world would that match in our home). But you see, I had a vision, a plan, a spark of inspiration.
I knew exactly where this colorful handmade rug was going . . .
This piece was the only new item I added to my table decor this season. I pulled the rest from my collection. Adding a layer with a table runner I received as a gift from India, some orange square dinner plate as placemats, white and royal blue dinner plates, followed by royal salad plates.
Topping it off with orange silk embroidered napkins inside some gold napkin rings and royal blue goblets.
For the table scape center pieces, I also drew from my collection beginning with the center vase and filling it with fresh sunflowers . . .
And then adding some of my ceramic collections . . .
And jars . . . (found at a garage sale)
Mixing and matching old and new always seems to bring a table together. I think I’m going to quite enjoy this colorful transition.
Now on to the next room, and who knows it may just lead to my outfit choices as well.
As always my friends, thanks for dropping by. Have a most colorful and wonderful day.
