I get asked about paint colors in our house. Did you know there is one handy tab on the blog with all of that information? https://thesteenstyle.com/my-paint-colors/

DIY Tufted Headboard18I update it with pictures as I finish a room so you can see what the color is and what it looks like in my house. Even if you like my color – make sure you paint a swatch on a wall before you paint a whole room! It will save you a lot of time if you make sure your lighting works with the color you want. Trust me – I’ve been there!

Last week, I posted my dreams for a great Mother’s Day celebration. I’m pleased with how it all turned out – especially the table! I love this orange and pink inspiration picture and really wanted to make it a reality in our house.

Orange and Pink Tablescape1The table runner was the starting point for me with this table. Its actually a full tablecloth (from the colorful summery tableware section at Target) that I folded and used as a runner. The white tablecloth is one my mom has let me borrowed for several years and is from Williams-Sonoma. The napkins are just a yard of fabric I cut into sixths. I love the Greek key pattern playing off of the lines of the table runner ..and of course I love the orange!

Orange and Pink Tablescape4The chargers are ones I’ve had for years (from Bed, Bath and Beyond) and the china, flatware and goblets with silver rim are all wedding china and glasses. The pink goblets are also from Target (in the same seasonal tableware section as the runner) as well as the multi-colored dipping bowls. I love that they had several colors grouped together so I bought a pink set and an orange/yellow set.

Orange and Pink Tablescape2The flowers are my favorite part. I purchased three sets of colorful roses from our local grocery store that has an awesome floral department (Uptown Grocery for those in the OKC area) and mixed them up to make these arrangements. I am in love with the combination of pink, coral and orange. The vases are from Dollar Tree (the best place for glassware like this!) and I let my mom and grandma each take one arrangement home with them as their Mother’s Day present so now we have one lonely vase – I may need to go get more for myself!

Orange and Pink Tablescape3 I’m so happy with how the tablescape turned out. This will be a fun and vibrant area to look at as the weather continues to get warmer and warmer – come on, summer!

I’m sure by now you’ve heard that the 2013 Pantone color of the year is emerald. Described on their website as a lively, radiant and lush green, Pantone shows many options for using this color in your home and wardrobe. I’ve seen it all across Pinterest as well so I wanted to try it out for myself.

Pinterest Image - Emerald TablescapeMy favorite emerald in your home example is this beautiful tablescape from Pinterest that incorporates black, white and gold. I love a decorated table and since it is the first thing you see in our house, I always try to have a set table with fun and fresh elements.

Emerald Tablescape1This is my version that mostly uses what I already had in the house! Since switching out my great-great-uncle’s chairs for gold ones weren’t an option, I brought in a pop of gold with chargers from Bed, Bath and Beyond. The table runner? It’s just two yards of fabric from Hobby Lobby! (I plan on recovering a bench with this fabric once I’m ready to switch over the table to something for summer – yay for double-duty!)

Emerald Tablescape2I always try to start with our wedding china and its holding up quite nicely for being used so much over the past five years. Some people only use their dishes once or twice a year but since its always out at our house, we use it quite often! The flatware is the matching pattern to our china and the green ‘napkins’ are actually a yard of emerald green fabric from Hobby Lobby, cut into six pieces and folded to look like napkins.

Emerald Tablescape3The beautiful green glasses are the only really new thing on this table. I found them on eBay and fell in love with the blown glass. The water glasses are gifts from our wedding and match the china. I would love to have some with a solid band of gold, too!

Emerald Tablescape4Last but not least, beautiful hydrangea. Tables are so much prettier with fresh flowers and I love these big, white blooms! Our local Whole Foods always has great sales on flowers and last week had a really good deal on these. They are one of my favorites!
