Tuesday’s Tip From the Pros


This week: Stick to a Basic Color Scheme to Keep Things Unified

A brightly colored tablescaping tip seemed fitting for a week that already feels like summer – Laguna will be mid 70’s this week! Our final tablescaping post focuses on choosing a simple color palette for your area and sticking to it. We’ve identified the color scheme in these inspiration photos to help you get the idea. Once you’ve decided on a palette for your space, it will help you collect items for it from other parts of the house or help you decide what to buy when you’re out shopping { at Tuvalu! } Now the question, Do I really need this red vase? will be much easier to answer!

And to brush up on our previous tablescaping posts click through these: Rule of Threes, A Dramatic Landscape, Go Vertical, and Using Books.


Above, a blue and white room – the classic combo. Mix in turquoise, silver and gold accents and your table will look stellar.


Bookcases need tablescaping too! Here a collection of green and teal milk glass looks unified { not cluttered } in part because of the simple color palette. See more bookcase design ideas in our post, Style Your Bookcase Like a Designer.

Blue and white gets a jolt with marigold accents such as a stack of National Geographic Magazines and matching acrylic tray – a great catchall for bedside tables.

  1. Beautiful! I think the same way now that I’ve identified our color palette for home. It’s all about collecting pieces that will seamlessly blend with your space. Love the white couch – someday!
