Looking for a color palette to express your warm side and your cool side. I love the combination of orange/reds opposed by cool blues/greens. I love a blue and white color scheme. Its timeless and classic and makes a great base for so many other colors to be mixed in. I put together this table vignette utilizing several designer tricks. Start my picking a color scheme you love, I tend to like colors on the opposite of the color wheel. These give a high contrast to your design and draw the eye in. When doing a vignette for a table start by containing your items in something like a basket or a tray.
Utilize several of the designer tricks my varying the height of your decor, using the rule of three, odd numbers grouped together adds visual interest. Add texture by having items of varying surfaces, rough like the basket, and burlap juxtaposed with shiny china . The chargers have a rustic feel but when topped with classic bone china they are elevated to rustic elegance. To keep the designer vibes going when possible always bring in touches of nature. Here I have added blue hydrangeas and ferns from my garden.
I love mixing in vintage and flea market finds into all my decor. It's just so fun to go Junkin, you never know what treasure you will bring home! When you have a great Junkin partner it's even better. For me it's my big sis. In this vignette the blue and white English bone china plates and the amber glasses are my vintage scores. I often hear it's so expensive to pull off stunning decor for your home, but there are so many ways to add items to your seasonal decor without breaking the bank. Mix in items from the dollar store, flea market finds, thrift stores, or my favorite gather items from your yard and repurpose them. Where ever you find your items , if you use these designer tricks your home will be magazine worthy.
