Weekend Tablescape: 3.27.11

Orange Ornithogalum , Yellow Mum + Pink Snapdragon

The Ornithogalum lasted all week and are still going strong. Clearly a hearty flower, while the tulips from last week's Weekend Tablescape became quite the delicate flowers. With the Ornithogalum still going strong, I thought that I would incorporate them into this week's Weekend Tablescape. This would have come sooner, but my first trip to Whole Foods on Saturday was not very fruitful, but they must have replenished today since I walked out with these gorgeous yellow Mums and pink Snapdragons. I have been into the Pink, Orange and Yellow color combo lately. It feels so springy while the weather outside still feels very wintery. Come on warm weather, why can't you begin to reflect the warm citrusy and springlike colors in this image?

Oh winter, time for you to say goodbye and spring, time for you to show your colors and for me to wear my favorite clothes...

New Series: Weekend Tablescapes

Tulips + Ornithogalum Orange

I am currently in the process of revamping Kelly + Horne, and part of that I am currently enrolled in "Blogging Your Way" which is co-taught by Holly Becker of Decor 8 and Leslie Shewring of A Creative Mint. My initial intention for this blog was to share what inspires me as a designer - specifically color. However, as much as I love color, and I do LOVE color, I am inspired by a multitude of things that influence my designs. Therefore, I intend to refocus the direction of Kelly + Horne to not just share with you what gets me excited, but I intend to share with you sketch development and designs that may come out of what I am feeling inspired by. One of the things that I listed as part of a homework assignment for BYW was that I love flowers and have secretly (okay, not so secret anymore) wanted to sign up for a flower arranging class. Being that I really do not have a lot of spare time for something like that, I am going to explore that on my own along with little tablescapes. I love flowers and creating vignettes. Eventually you will see through my designs how much flowers do inspire me.

On that note, I introduce to you a new series: Weekend Tablescapes.
