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!

If you’ve worked in a retail store you understand the importance of the term merchandising for creating visual interest and a sense of enjoyment in a store. We’ve all been through stores that don’t utilize this concept – although you may not remember them since you were so unimpressed that you scooted right out!

But what is it that makes things interesting? And more importantly, why should you care?! Well the way we see it, the methods behind merchandising a retail store can also be applied to your home. We’d like to share those tricks with you so that you get those “ooh’s” and “ahh’s” all while making your family and guests want to stay awhile in your cozy, interesting home.

A more commonly used term in arranging home decor is Tablescaping. There are several tricks of the trade which we’ll talk with you about each Tuesday over the next few weeks in our new Tablescape Tuesdays series. So stay tuned!
