Adding Some Plaid To The Breakfast Area

I think it is pretty obvious if you follow me for very long that I love all shades of orange, tangerine, persimmon or pumpkin color.  I have been really enjoying the bright orange in the family room with the touches of lime green, so I thought maybe I would add some pretty orange-tangerine-pumpkin-lime plaid to the breakfast table.

 I kept the same candlesticks that I was using before and added some spheres amd columns that I thought had some character.   I love the way light flows into this room, it always looks so bright and cheery.

 This is just a simple, use it everyday table setting.

Do you have a favorite color that just seems to put a smile on your face?

Be sure to get all of your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday.  Party goes live Monday afternoon at 3 PM CMT.  Can't wait to see you there.

I am joining the following parties:

  1. It looks lovely, Marty. Great tablescape.

  2. I absolutely love your breakfast room! The color scheme is stunning and the addition of the table runner really brings everything together. Stunning!

  3. Marty - it looks awesome.......and a perfect late summer-early fall aren't fooling me into believing fall is right around the corner. I am staying in summer mode. It's sunny again today and finally summer for us without rain (holding my breath!)

    Looks wonderful. And the color that always pleases me is sage green. I have little bits around the house but not much color - but for all I do it up heavily, though each year one less box comes out to play - this year may be even less with this boot on my foot. : - (

    You could double napkin this tablescape with the extra fabric we talked about the other day - would work well here.
    You got it goin' on, lady. Looks awesome. ♥

  4. Very pretty table . . . that would be my company is coming for dinner table. My everyday table wouldn't be anything to photograph, LOL. I have many favorite colors, but I guess red is number one:)

  5. Hi Mary....Love your blog...I couldn't help noticing the wine cabinet in the corner.May I ask where you found it??? Been looking for one for a corner in my kitchen. Thanks so much.

  6. Marty, I always enjoy your updates to you home. Your tablescape is very nice, bright, & cheery. Who wouldn't want to eat there? I like the table runner. Did you sew it or pick it up from a shop?
