The news from High Point is that bright colors are "in".
I particularly like the combination of blue and orange.
I've been doing a lot of gardening and outdoor fluffing. When I found a blue Ikat indoor/outdoor rug at World Market, I decided to change up the front porch a bit with the blue/orange combo.
My front door was already orange. I added a mix of flowers to some orange and blue flower pots.
I already had the blue Chippendale bench and the window valance is actually a Pottery Barn table runner. I just added a casing and put it on the rod. I love the blue and white garden stool. The new items are the Ikat rug and some orange indoor/outdoor cushions.
The last image shows the whole porch.
Are you ready for some color? What combinations do you like?
