Archive for the ‘Orange is my favorite color’ Category

It is a very happy time in Oklahoma City! The Thunder is headed to its first-ever NBA Finals and the town is pumped. There is blue and orange everywhere you look and I love it. Blue and orange, orange and blue…it is a great combination that isn’t just in OKC. Check out these great pictures of blue and orange in home and fashion.

Gorgeous! The blue maxi dress and orange Marc Jacobs clutch are perfect.

Pattern overload! If you love to mix and match your patterns then this is the room for you. I like how they used different tones of the same color – colors in a room don’t have to be matchy-matchy!

Very cool display! The blue Ball glasses are so pretty.

This is a room I could definitely live in. Clean and crisp with perfect pops of orange!

Thunder Up, friends!

I know I’ve said it before but Tonic Living is one of my most favorite websites for fabric. They have a never-ending supply of inspiration and pure beauty! I love browsing their new arrivals and drooling over some old favorites. (and no, I’m not paid to say this – I wish! – I just really love their site)

This navy chevron? No words. I think you all already know how I feel about chevron, especially if you follow me on Pinterest, but the thick navy with the smaller multi-stripe grey? Absolute perfection. I want to use this and need to find a place for it in my house, ASAP!

Orange. My love. If you are new to my blog, you should know right now that orange and I are BFFs. As a very proud Oklahoma State alum, I wear/live my orange with loud pride! I love wearing it and love having it in my home. This year is a perfect year to be an OSU fan – orange is everywhere for home and fashion! This greek key print does not disappoint, especially in my favorite and most beautiful orange.

This links pattern is very cool. They have it in several colors but I think I like this taupe-tan the best. It could very well be a possible candidate for some chairs in our house. I’m still debating but I love the neutral color and very fun pattern that is different than anything else I have in the house.

Have you found some fabric you love lately? Let me know your favorite resource as well – I’m always looking for something new!

This weekend I updated the look of our entryway buffet. (An original picture, plus the original before and after link here.) Depending on the season and my mood, this area never looks the same for long. The start of a new year, plus the fact that one of the knobs on the top drawer broke, made it time for a change in this space.

I got a new lamp from Target a couple months ago and I love the airy, lighter feel it gives. I tried to balance out the tallness of the left by layering a picture and some books on the right. I’m not 100% sold on this look yet but I like it for now – which is all that matters, right? 🙂

I couldn’t remember where I got the original knobs from so I picked up three new knobs from Lowe’s that I thought would look good for the top drawers. The mis-matched pulls actually look pretty good! I think it helps that I covered the original drawer pull holes with the black backplates so it makes sense to have a different knob on top.

The silver frame was purchased at Target and I printed a picture I found on Pinterest (link here) that I really liked. Abstract art is pretty cool when done in similar tones like this. I’m not a huge fan of the crazy, over-the-top abstracts, but this one fits really well with our home color scheme. I love cheap art!

Have you heard that you’re supposed to take off the dust covers on your books? I had too and finally did it…makes such a difference! The top book with the cool link design? Its Nate Burkus’ book. Of course! He is the one that preaches about this no-cover practice so it fits that inside his cover is a really cool piece of art. The only cover still on is the bottom PB one, I had to have a pop of orange!

I’m getting the itch to paint this piece of furniture again…Heaven help me, it hasn’t even been two years since I painted it the last time!
