Don’t Just Step into Spring, Add a Twist

 As we all know today is the first day of Spring, the time of year when the sun is shining by 7am and the rain usually follows around 3pm .  Here at A.Clore Interiors spring brings all new possibilities!  We have taken a few samples from the Martha Living paint collection and added a little bit of  twist to your usual spring time palette. The colors are as follows:

 Now here’s the twist we mentioned earlier, using these colors in a floral pattern! That’s right, flowers are not just for grandma’s house anymore! A modern way to use a floral print is by mixing a variety of types and sizes that compliment one another.  It’s like any other pattern it’s all about scale!

Using more than one floral pattern is a fun and easy way to brighten up any room.  You’ll go from drab to fab in a snap! We are loving the way COLOURlovers.com sheds new light on an old fav, with the photo above.

Day 7: Gingham Style

Not to be confused with Gangnam Style…which, we admit, have no idea how that song became so popular…the dance isn’t even that fun!?

any who..

Yay for day seven of this glorious month!!

Today we are going to give thanks to the Gingham Pattern!! So, I cant totally discredit Gangnam Style, as they were the inspiration for this post!

What is gingham, you ask? Well, the official definition for gingham is a medium weight balanced plain woven fabric made from dyed cotton or cotton blend yarn. Yawn.

Maybe this little girl can shed some light?

Or maybe this spread, oh, what a delight!!

Perhaps a colorful twist on a pattern quite trite!

Now that you know what gingham is all about,

and you’ve got the right pattern in mind

Look at this fabulous stationary to keep your cards a bind!

Bikinis to bows ~ and even peep toes!!

Grab a comfortable chair…

…or that throw over there.

Whether “red” or “blue”…we are all humans too!! (pun intended ;))

BIG!

or small….

We love the GINGHAM PATTERN, we love them all!!!

Thanks for stoping by today,

come back again tomorrow to see to to see what attention we pay!!

P.S. Happy Birthday to the cutest little 2 year old ever, my nephew, Isaac Martin Neely
