Subtitle, "Opposites Attract."
I am playing house again today!
Let me show you what I have done.
I found a few more things that were in storage
...so I put together a tablescape.
I just love to play with my dishes!
I began with this rustic farmhouse table runner.
Next I took a cue from the navy blue stripe.
I decided to pull in my Chinoiserie bowl.
I have not used any of my "blue and white" in the kitchen of our new house. But I wanted to give it a try.
I mostly stick with the colors in my drapes...greens, golds, browns, etc.
So I thought I would give the "blue and white" a try.
Rustic farmhouse runner with traditional china...hmmm.
I added some dark blue napkins to drive home the point with blue again.
To me, repeating colors is what gives a tablescape, a room, or house that pulled together look.
I thought I would add a couple of modern hurricanes
instead of my usual traditional looking ones.
Ready for tea or coffee?
I had to buy a new sugar and creamer (TJMaxx) because I still cannot find mine,
...the ones that go with my Countryside Italian china.
Maybe mine will show up in a box somewhere.
I hope so!
I think I will try more blue and white in my kitchen décor. I like it.
This table runner is my first rustic farmhouse piece of table linen. Something about it said "take me home." I wasn't sure how it would mix with my traditional stuff. But I thought I would play around with it.
I like rustic farmhouse in others' homes but I was not sure how I would like it in my home.
With the addition of china and other dressier tid bits, I like it. My style is not really "farmhouse" or "rustic" but it is so stylish these days that I wanted to give it a try. As long as I include classic side by side with farmhouse I think I could be comfortable with it. Who knows what wild and crazy décor directions I will be going in next?
Thanks for visiting today!
