orange you glad..

I chose orange!!!

There are other colors in the mix as well. It all started with this painting I found at the thrift store for $6.

This picture really doesn't do it justice. It's much more vibrant in real life. I was originally going to buy it for the frame (to spray paint of course), but the more I looked at it, the more I liked the color combination. 

Especially since my mom had given me this bad boy a looooong time ago: 

It's from West Elm! How chic! I haven't had anywhere to put it, and now it will go toward my new bedding plans.

THEN, as if it was a sign from the design gods, I found this at the Antique Mall in Hoover. 

It really is a sign! Vintage 7up with all the colors from the painting! You know I'm a sucker for old signs. Or big red stars..

Look how good they look together:

Here's a picture with the flash. Again, neither of these pictures look exactly like it does in real life. 

Look how perfect they look with the blanket!!

So, ladies and gentlemen, my color palette will consist of these colors:
Light aqua/robin's egg blue
Dark teal
Bits of lime, plum, and navy
Neutrals will be brought in with golds and creams

Totally different from the ol' primary color explosion downstairs, eh?!

I went to TJ Maxx yesterday, and found this pillow! How awesome is it?!?! 
(How lame am I to get excited about a pillow?) It's shimmery, and the little leaves shake when it moves. So much so that when I showed it to my roomie last night, I danced with it and sang "I like the way you move!"


They also had these lovelys! There are two there tied up, but you can't really see the other one..

I'm going to use the green curtains that use to be in the den (you saw them in the pics from yesterday). I threw my dark navy jeans in the pic so you could see the how it would look with that color in the mix, because it's going to be used in the room as well! 

With the flash! I feel the need to show both, because the colors in real life are somewhere between these two.

Ooooo weeee, I can't wait for it to all come together!!
