It actually does look like Spring might be arriving soon here in the North Carolina mountains. It will be 72 today, then 23 tomorrow night with a chance of snow??!! Go figure. In the meantime, I have been warming things up in the living room with hot pink and the gold/brass that I showed in yesterday's post.
I really don't have anything blooming outside yet, and I haven't forced any flowering branches, so I am using fabric for that pop of Spring color.
I really love this shade of pink because it's bold and has a modern look that offsets all the antique furniture and vintage accessories. A 1960s hot pink sweater is draped across the back of the chaise lounge to break up the white.
I found so many great remnants at the "fire sale" my local fabric store had, that I have no problem finding different textures and shades of pink that all work together.
I made the square pillow, and my grandmother made the round one years ago.
The dark antique table got a needed softening and pop of color from the pink and grey striped taffeta. Oh...I never showed you my new (old) lampshade, but this vintage fiberglass shade was an ebay win. I love Eames-atomic-era shades so much, and they can really update a fussy old lamp.
So until it warms up outside, the hot pink will have to brighten these early Spring days inside.
And speaking of pink...
I received the most thoughtful gift from a facebook friend and follower, Angela. I had mentioned that I did not have the middle bowl in my vintage Pyrex pink "Gooseberry" mixing bowl set, and not only did she find the one I wanted so badly, she sent it to me as a gift. Oh how excited I was to open that box to see that beautiful white bowl. It never ceases to amaze me the incredible people I have met through this blog. It just goes to show you there are thoughtful, caring, amazing people out there like Angela who make the world a prettier place:-)
Thanks for stopping by:-)
