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!

Take a look at what we’re envisioning with these three new pieces.
