Hi Everyone! I have a pretty, spring tablescape to share with all of you, and I’m really excited about it. One, because it means that it’s almost spring, and two, because colors make me happy, and this is one colorful table.
I have vivid memories about a JCPenney catalog that I used to keep under my bed when I was little.
I remember that it was thick and heavy – much like any ‘old fashioned’ catalog – with lots of writing and number references crammed onto most of the pages. But certain sections were full of pretty rooms and design inspiration, and this is precisely why I kept that catalog under my bed. I still remember, quite exactly, what I wanted my dream bedroom to look like.
It had glow in the dark stars and planets covering nearly every square inch of the ceiling, a pretty crazy looking comforter, with a jazzy, early nineties print in fluorescent pink and blue (think Zack Morris outfit gone wrong), and one of those clear telephones with all of the visible colored wires inside. I know I can’t be alone on wanting one of those back in the nineties! Actually, I bet some of you even had one, a n d my eleven year old self is jealous! 🙂
I used to stand outside our bedroom door (my sisters and I shared, by choice!) and tell them that if we took down the wall between our room and the adjacent room, we could have the coolest room of all time – just like my catalog inspiration photo. And I’m guessing I was about eleven or twelve at the time.
So it’s pretty safe to say that interior design and creating pretty spaces is just in my blood. It makes me so happy to pull colors and fabrics together, and actually create a mood in a room.
Isn’t it amazing how colors can do that? Actually make you ‘feel’ something? I love the cheerful energy that this table gives off, which is fitting because it happens to be exactly how I’m feeling about spring being just around the corner! [Read more…]
