"Color and Country"

Politics aside, you've got to admit the Presidential Inauguration is always so exciting.  Of course, I'm one of those people that loves formality and tradition, pomp and circumstance so no surprise I love events like these. 

I was struck by all of the fabulous color at the festivities...


From Mrs. Obama's gloves (and beautiful coat) to the first daughter's violet delights and Kelly Clarkson's burgundy, it was practically a purple palooza. 

However, what struck me even more was the color selection at the Luncheon.  Honestly, I had the TV on at that point but wasn't really watching until, I looked up and I noticed the most beautiful orange roses.

 They were absolutely divine.  And even more interesting was the turquoise silk table linens with which they were paired.

"Strange color combo for an Inauguration event", I thought.  But then I remembered that while they were planning this event, the Pantone Color of the Year was Tangerine Tango.

Nevertheless, whatever their reason for the color selection, it is a beautiful combination.  One that works equally as well in residential spaces.







Did you notice anything interesting during the day's events?  Leave me a comment.  I'd love to hear from you!
