Color Palette Has Been Picked!!

We have finally chosen the colors for our living room!!! And I could not be happier! We get the brightness that I wanted but we also get the warmth that Chuck was looking for!!

At first we were planning on just incorporating a warm, bright orange from a painting (that I scored at a 2nd hand store for $8) but then I realized we could incorporate more than just the orange. I took apart a fall floral arrangement I made to work on bringing these fabulous colors into our living room!!

Look at how vibrant these are!
I chose to do 2 of the bigger size Hurricane vases. They were $2 a piece from Wal-Mart...what a score and I already had the marbles and flowers!
I chose 3 smaller hurricane vases, $1 a piece, and put a smaller candle in them. You can never have too many candles, at least in my mind.

Here is a shot of the 2 bigger vases and one of the smaller ones. The colors are so amazing with the dark espresso furniture. They really pop!!

And here is a shot of the whole entertainment stand. I was so happy to get rid of the pictures and the small candle holders I had as placeholders. I just wanted to make it more decorative and I love flowers and candles!
Overall I could not be happier with the way they vases turned out. Even Chuck likes them. Now to work on finishing the living room. I cannot wait to have our living room completely done.
Next steps:
Paint one accent wall
Move coffee table out of living, waiting on some help since Chuck is still down and out from his work injury.
Find new decorative pillows to match the color scheme
Find two new throw blankets to match the color scheme
Redo one candle holder to match the color scheme
And possibly find an area rug. Chuck really wants one and I'm starting to warm up to the idea, but we are now limited because we chose the colors we wanted for the living room. So wish us luck hunting for a rug that will match!
