Color, texture, stay or go?

First off thanks for the many congratulations, regarding our publication in Country Woman magazine!~
So much fun it was indeed.
 Now onto this post....
I am not one into table cloths.  At one time, I loved them, and lace ones no less.
  Now I like table runners and placemats.
Of course, as you know color is key for me.
Now that I finally have valances I like, it is hard to find the right table runner to go with, or should I say compliment.
Today I went to Marshall's to buy a friend a birthday gift.  Well she got one, and I got two...
even though my birthday is over.
I deserve it RIGHT? RIGHT, thank you...
I don't shop that much these days..too busy on this dang computer.
How about this score for 12.99 at Marshalls, including the bottles...I almost walked away from it, then I thought, I know what I can do with it.

I love my faux flowers and apples from PIER I..that is the only place I like to get the faux's.
I mentioned color and texture.  Well here it is.  As you can see I am very much drawn to these colors...
These are the same colors in the valances.  I think it is a nice compliment..paisley and check? Sure why not..

As you can see I did not place this table cloth the traditional way.  I layered it on each side.
It just looked too perfect the other way, I hate perfect.

I still have to iron it, because I HATE wrinkles too..
but before I took that time to do that, I have to see if I can live it with it.

Should it stay or should it GO?

It goes perfectly with your chairs and valance colors. Love the wicker holding the bottles. Good price on that!

Get out that iron. You are going to LIVE with it. The perfect punch of color. It goes so well. It can not go.... Remember, Tease in Color, perfect.

love the basket and bottles- havent seen anything like that!

Tablecloth is nice and bright, I am with you, I prefer runners and placemats, but tablecloths work well with kids :)

Well, I guess I will be the Devil's advocate here. While I really like the tablecloth I am not in LOVE with it in your setting. It's nice but...hmmm...well,, when I look at the room my eyes zero right in to it because it is so different from the surrounding pieces/fabrics. However, maybe that is your intent? And..I don't think colors run true in pictures either so it might be just that. But...that is just can slap me silly when you see me~ xo Diana

Hi Debbie...

I am the same way any more...I usually do runners and placemats instead of a tablecloth. But...I really do like this pretty tablecloth that you found, my friend! It goes perfectly with your colors, valance, and dining room! I think it offers a nice change!

I just adore the wicker carrier and bottles! I would love to find one like that...and it was a great price too! Great finds, my friend! Thank you for sharing them with us today! You know...I just adore your dining really IS GORGEOUS!!!

Warmest summery wishes, sweet lady!

The chairs really make the matching color in the tablecloth pop. LOVE how the apples also match the top of the chairs.
I like florals with stripes, paisly with plaids, and varied textures as well.
Keep it. It looks nice, Debbie.

I really like it! It looks like it belongs in your room.

I almost bought those bottles in the wicker from TJ's but put them up. They are adorable.

Have a happy 4th!

The tablecloth perfectly compliments your dining room! I think it should stay. Love the little bottles, too. I have something smaller and need to do a little number on it! Your dining room is beautiful!!

My vote is to stay. It brings pattern and visual interest at just the right height. Your eye is drawn to the tablecloth. Great choice:)

June 28, 2011 at 7:27 PM  
Blogger Renegades said...

It looks nice but is it to much pattern with your valences being plaid?

June 28, 2011 at 7:28 PM

Love the tablecloth..but the picture hanging low in front of the dog bowls is what caught my eye...great idea..I have 3 dogs and I think it's about time they had art on their level! Thanks for the ideas and inspirations :)

Blogger Ann from On Sutton Place said...

I would have brought home the wicker holder too. Totally love the tablecloth...but I'm a fabric lover and there's nothing better than a great floral in my opinion! I think it looks divine. You could always cut some of the tablecloth off and make a pillow for the other end chair...I love the way you have a pillow on one of them. Regardless, it's a change and it didn't cost very much. Well done!

I think it's pretty & should stay. It compliments the valances nicely.

I love the tablecloth, but what really caught my eye was the shelf up high above the window. Love the asymmetrical styling. Your dining room is so inviting and that a word???

Oh, I think it should stay! I'm a sucker for paisley. It goes so well with the valences so you HAVE to keep it.

Debbie, I'm loving that tablecloth with the paisley! I do love paisley fabric and wallpaper, too. I think the cloth gives the right touch of the same colors in your valances. It should stay! ;)

Debbie, I couldn't tell what thought about it when you showed it up close. When you showed the photo from a little distance, giving the full effect of how it looks in the room....gorgeous!! I think it is definitely a "stay"! It looks so pretty with your chairs.

I think it looks great in there! I know you have to give it a bit to see if you like it. I get that. I like the little wicker bottle set. I saw one at Stein Mart and didn't get it but wish I had.

I love the tablecloth. Is it Waverly? I am a Wavery nut! I sometimes turn my tablecloths in the diamond shape and layer with a smaller one on top. Kind of cute :) Anyway, I had to tell you that I dreamt last night I was in my favorite shop and I ran into you. We were happy to meet each other. I went back to buy some king size yellow RL sheets and you had scooped them up. We must have the same taste in dreamland, lol!

I love it, Debbie! And, how you turned it the other way looks great ... I hate perfect, too! The neat bottles were a true score! And, BTW, whenever I buy a birthday gift for someone, I usually buy myself one, too (or, is that *two*) ?! LOL

Hey friend! Well, I like it! I think it is nice to have something like that to throw into the mix now and then even if you decide not to use it everyday. And besides, you could always just use it to make pillows if you get tired of it! LOL!

Hi Debbie, I love how your tablecloth compliments your valances. I say keep it and enjoy, when you grow tired of it put it away and bring it out again in the fall. You have such a great eye for design, I love your dining room! I hope you have a great day!

What I love about it is that you can change it up by folding it down smaller, putting it on an angle ect. You can show more table or less table depending on your mood. I say keep it!

I think we're sisters from other misters! :-) I hate perfect too...and love color. Can't stand all matchy, matchy. I think these colors are perfect for your space. You could also make a runner and napkins from the tablecloth...just a thought! The bottle thingy is great too.
