Retail Therapy: World Market

By Kate Riley April 22, 2013

Yesterday I took a few hours to run errands and visit some favorite stores to check out new collections and popped into World Market. My sister is also fixing up her place so we were texting pictures back and forth, talking about the pieces and accents and textiles we like, it’s so much fun to shop like that!

World Market unveils several collections throughout the year but I always look forward to the outdoor options, full of color and exotic patterns, and picked up some accents there last year for our balcony seating area. I spied a lot of new favorites while I was there on Sunday – I especially love their patterned textiles for a variety of uses beyond the tea towel or napkin (think art and pillows!)

I’m going to cover one wall with ferns attached to repurposed wood plaques – there will be lots of kokedama (sp) along with palms and citrus trees.

  76. I bought a new welcome mat with navy, lime green, turquoise and gold. My plain white front door will be one of those bright, fun colors soon!

  77. I could spend hours wandering aroun World Market! Right now, I’m decorating with a lot of Fisher Price Primary colors. Yup, I have a small child! I am looking for new master bedroom curtains though. I can’t make up my mind!

  78. Worked there years ago in college–I still call it Cost Plus. We’re doing backyard stuff–imagine robin’s egg blue with red. Kind of loving it. Still a work in progress, though. Always. ;)

  79. I’ve been creeping on the World Market website and drooling :) Waiting for the weekend to make a mini escape from the kiddos & hubby for some retail therapy too. I love reds, pinks and oranges…and I am a sucker for gold colored accents. Thanks for all your ideas!

  87. I tend toward greens but want to add another pop of color this year, maybe tangerine. Love World Market!

  88. Was hoping to do some spray painting of some aqua and yellow accent pieces this spring, but here in Minnesota we are having the winter that won’t end, with fresh foot of snow on the ground last week and more on the way tonight, so no spray painting going on around here… :-(

  89. I adore World Market!! They closed the one that was closest to me so I don’t get to go as often as I’d like but my budget is grateful for that!! haha.
    I’m decorating with green in all it’s forms: lime, kelly, light, mint, etc…

  90. I am really into the chevron prints right now. I just bought some pillows in the print that were golden yellow. I really want to to some out door stuff in the coral red with some grey and gold accents… Everything is so pretty! I love it all.

  91. I’m drawn to warm version of cool colors: Blues, teals, and greens with touches of gold/amber and textures. But still lots of whites: slipcovers, ironstone, accents. Sophisticated cottage.

  92. I’m finding myself using a lot of coral this spring. Even going to paint my bathroom coral because I can’t get enough! :)

  93. I’d like to be focusing on the outdoors. The 5″ of rain in two days, then snow…again…has me cooling my heels inside. We’re in our first house and have a grand total of 4 outdoor chairs and no table. So we’re thinking about furniture first. As far as color, maybe light blue or turquoise cushions, then I have a few yards of a cheery outdoor fabric in a rainbow of bright colors for an accent.

  94. I love cost plus.. I have been looking at their floral napkins and place mats. Also, I have been mixing florals with geometric prints. This is my favorite tome of the year!

  95. Coral and Tiffany blue accents in the home office. Golden yellow, grey, and white in my new half bathroom. Small spaces are getting splashes of love this spring and summer!

  96. I’m really liking maroon, purple and mustard yellow. Although my house is mostly greens, blues and grays.

  97. Cannot wait until summer…looking to incorporate navy with a pop of raspberry and lime green in my outdoor setting. Fresh and fun!! Love your blog site and all the inspiration!

  98. I adore World Market and anything coral! Would love a gift card to help decorate my new place I’ll be in June!

  99. My main kitchen/ dining nook colors are red and yellow. Last year I put in a little apple green- but this year I am thinking of either orange or an old fashioned aqua .

    Liking yellow gray and white for my bedroom , but find most bedding in those colors is fairly modern, and my furniture is not…..

  100. I use lime green and am planning on adding a bright turquoise. I love the Seasise-Colored string bulb lights…I would string up 3 of them. I can’t wait!!!

  101. I’m wanting to accent my neutrals with some brighter pops of green and blue :)

  102. We just purchased a new outdoor table from world market! My favorite part? The red chevron canvas chair at one of the ends.

  110. I’m loving yellow and gray…but for outside, anything I can hose off is perfect!

  111. I’ve become quite the fan of yellow this season – new yellow patterned pillows, yellow tulips, and even a large snail spray-painted yellow. Very spring-like. :)

  112. I found some striped sunbrella pillows at Costco. Now I am trying to decide what colors to use with them.

  113. We plan to put in more garden and less yard, so I am on the lookout for interesting lighting and colorful plant containers. Blue, yellow, purple, green, red ~ any saturated color :)

  114. I am hoping to bring in more teal and coral! I hope the teal makes the coral seem more manly so my husband doesn’t accuse me

  115. Aqua blue and Yellow…I’m lovin chevron patterns, stripes, and Moroccan designs!

  116. I’d like to bring in some coral. Our back patio is so small and BORING right now and I’d like to spruce it up with a rug and some fun patterned pillows!

  117. Yay, I love World Market! I’m looking at a bright green (chartreuse) and blue as my decorating colors this spring.

  118. I Love World Market!! I have been browsing their website looking at the outdoor decor! I’m currently decoring my patio in Red, Black & creme. Add another “spot” of color from World Market would be devine!

    Thanks for the opportunity to do so!


  119. Gray, navy, and yellow! All together or separate. I’m obsessed! And the ikat pattern might be last year’s craze, but I still love it!

  120. Most of my house is in neutrals with touches of navy, so when it comes to the sunroom and patio, I’m loving bright pops of coral, orange and hot pink.

  122. I’ve already got gold and paprika, but going to switch to teal and coral – it’s so hot right now!

  125. I’m loving gray and yellow. Or gray and coral. I like classic, timeless patterns or just plain

  126. I’m using aqua, chartreuse, and natural linen. I haven solid pieces, and I’m on the hunt for prints that combine all three.

  127. My husband just built a deck in our backyard, and I’m using tomato red, teal and green for the outdoor decor. World Market has such a cute collection this year!

  128. I am really liking orange this spring. I am thinking of adding some orange into my turquoise master bedroom.

  129. We just built a new house and have decorated it in all grays and whites. I hope to incorporate some steel blue. As for patterns i don’t know yet! But am loving polka dots and florals!

  130. I love all of the earthy tones at World Market, with pops of aqua & purple. I like patterns that can stand the test of time.

  131. Our patio needs a makeover this summer. I’m going with greens in whatever pattern catches my eye when I finally go shopping.

  132. i definitely want to incorporate green and floral prints. most of my stuff is neutral with simple stripes or spots

  133. I’m decorating in reds, blues, greens, and yellows…with some pops of black and white scattered about. It’s a bright, happy place around here!

  134. I did our bedroom in a masculine blend with charcoal, gray, and white neutrals and walnut wood tones. I’m now bringing in my feminine pieces with some patterned accessories, gold accents, and of course spring flowers. I love this season!

  135. I’m trying to bring in some green. I stick with minimalist pieces/decorating so I just spread out some big clear vases and greenery, branches, leaves, etc. I changed my darker, thicker curtains for white ones also.

  136. This spring/summer I’m decorating with sunny yellow thrown in with some girly pink and maybe a bit of my favorite color, navy blue.

  137. Lately I’ve been sprucing up my bedroom in whites and greys with touches of pink. I’ve also been adding TONS of plants around my house! It definitely spruces things up and brings Spring in :)

  138. My house’s previous owner painted an accent wall burnt orange. I hated it at first, but now it’s really growing on me. I’m trying to find ways to incorporate it throughout the house.

  139. I was just there today looking at all the patterns! I’m doing black and white cabana stripes on the patio..classic with some color accessories!

  140. I love the colors of the ocean… blues/greens…. maybe aqua…. cool and refreshing.

  141. I really really love World Market! I have fond memories of getting lost in the exotic food sections as a little kid.

    I love the marrakesh patterns – the quatrefoil especially! They are terrific in bright colors!

  142. I’m obsessed with red and turquoise lately. This is life changing for me, I used to be a neutrals girl. I don’t know what’s come over me! I know, I know, I’m living on the edge.

  143. Wow, what a generous giveaway. I’m going with a somewhat Moraccan theme. I’ve ordered some beautiful Malta and Darien lanterns from Pottery Barn. I can’t wait for some warm nights, sitting on the deck with the glow of the candles from the lanterns.

  144. We are currently painting my daughters bedroom a soft lilac, and I love it! It’s a breath of fresh air from all of the pink (her former favorite color now replaced by purple) she has loved for so long!

  145. I always used to do my outdoor decorating with brights: bold yellow, pink, blue, aqua, herby green.

    But my husband really prefers simple, rustic styles and when we moved to a new home last summer, I promised him that I’d keep the treehouse-ish feeling of our (very high) deck. I sold all our old outdoor furnishings when we moved, and this summer I’m going to try to replace them with wood and white: mostly wood furniture, with some white chairs or occasional tables. White textiles for outdoors don’t sound terribly practical though. I’m not sure what I’ll do there.

  146. I LOVE World Market! I am overhauling a lot of my outdoor space this spring. I want to purchase or make a swing for the front porch and all of our IKEA outdoor furniture has seen better days so I would love this g.c. to even add some lovely new pillows or art!

  147. I love damask and gold accents, so I’d love to find some outdoor decor that could fit the bill.

  148. I’ve admired world market for a long time but never actually bought anything there! I like your “frame it” idea. I’ve been trying to add more green to my house, but really, the more colorful the better in some things!

  149. What a nice giveaway! My goal is to get some furniture for our patio this summer with cushions in lime greens and yellows.

  150. I’m adding in a bit of deep tones yellow throughout my living room. I’m feeling a need for color this summer! I sure wish we had World Market in Alaska. I’m currently thinking of biting the bullet and shipping a piece of furniture up here from WM.

  151. We recently painted our kitchen turquoise and for spring I have brought in coral and beige

  152. I found a lime green outdoor pillow on clearance last year and then some lime green and bright blue lanterns a few months later and it kicked off this color palette for our back porch that I am very excited about! Need a rug and some more pillows…maybe a planter or two in the same color scheme to tie it all in!

  153. We just painted our living room and dining room a neutral color that is close to your entry color (Wheeling Neutral by BM). We are trying to go more neutral on our first floor so that everything has a better flow.

  154. I’ve been stuck in the earthy brown and green colors in our living areas. I’m trying to incorporate fresher brighter colors because I’m a little bored

  155. Hi Kate, I am painting my back porch ceiling blue this summer and plan to use blue and green pillows on the swing and other furniture. I am also on the lookout for an outdoor rug that makes my heart sing!

  156. I’m loving beachy accents. And maybe a little ikat doesn’t hurt. Also, wanting to mix in more blues.

  157. That exactly what we are working on this spring, our patio/backyard. Thinking of teals, whites, and maybe yellows on the furniture.

  158. what colors or patterns are you decorating with this spring and summer in or outside of your home?
    I live in a condo and the balconies are almost an orange color- so want to add yellow, and other citrus hues,

  159. I love washed-out, watery blues and greens against a neutral backdrop…colors of sea, sky, sand. I also love geometric pattern.

  160. I think I am going to head to World Market this weekend and grab those Chevron yellow placemats to make pillows for outside! I am trying to go with red with punches of yellow and aqua for my outdoor decor this year.

  161. I have a large front porch. My house is a light tan with an aqua door I have whiite vintage furniture so I like to accent with aqua, cobalt and a touch of lavender.

  162. My spring colors this year are teal, yellow and some hot pink (sorry hubby!). I have never experimented with spring colors before, but have been inspired by the many posts I’m keeping up with. I have to say, my house feels new with every season I’ve experimented with so far….I love it!

  163. We just moved and now have a really great patio/outdoor area and I am so confused on what I should do with it. I really like turquoise, but am afraid it will have had it’s day soon. What do you think about it?

  164. I’m loving emerald this year so I’m trying to incorporate more of that into my decor. I also love the super graphic prints.

  165. I really like the freshness of the coral accessories I have spied in stores lately.

  166. I’m not quite sure yet on color (which is why our house is void of it except my craft room and pantry), but I’m so digging geometric patterns and graphic patterns, like the woven bowls in your picture. Love! I love World Market as well and can always find something to come home with. :)

  167. At present, I am loving gray and yellow together. Would love to win this shopping spree.

  168. We just painted our front door a citron/chartreuse color. There are pops of the color all the way out to the back deck, where it is met with teal and a bunch of other companion colors. World Market’s outdoor mosaic rug – which is GREAT, by the way – anchors the outdoor seating area.

  169. Inside I have a large variety of blues greens and Browns…turquoise teal icy blue robins egg navy etc can be found in every room with a lot of white mixed in for lightness and continuity. Red is one of my husband and oldest sons favorite colors so our front porch back patio and flowers always have plenty of red to make them happy.

  170. I could pretty much decorate with ANYTHING from World market, right now I’m on a quest for chevron :)

  171. oh I would love to win this! I just found some outdoor cushions at World market that I fell in love with. I’m thinking of going with coral, poppy, and turquoise for my outdoor patio!

  172. Luv luv luv World Market. Going to try and do grey with bright green pops of color.

  173. I am loving coastal colors for summer, with a splash of pink and coral. I need to bring some life into these boring rooms of mine.

  174. I’ve been looking for a colorful side table for my deck, one that is of a light/medium blue to match my dark, medium & light blue colors. World Market has some great affordable options.

  175. Love World Market, so I would love to win. Might go with coral and blue for the summer !!

  176. I’m so in love with turquoise and yellow. That pillow from World Market would fit the bill so well to go with our neutral patio furniture.

  177. All shades of green , yellow and bleu for my pergola , this would be a great start !

  178. Attempting to move away from the Red, Whote and Blue and into Turquoise. Maybe a touch of orange.

  179. We are moving this week, backyard is a blank canvas. All we are bringing from our old house are some white benches ehich need some paint. I always need purple around me in some way, not the most Spring like color, but it makes me happy!

  180. I’m LOVING pops of Coral and/or Orange indoors AND out! My living room is Benjamin Moore’s Prescott Green- so calm and grounding, and accents in orange hues make the room vibrant and happy! I’m carrying the color outdoors onto my recycled brick (thanks, Dad) patio! Also, I plan to put a dining table (weatherproof, of course) smack dab in the middle of my potager, so I envision graphics mixed with botanicals. HOWEVER- I’m loving the “BUG pillows”, AND the paisley with the grey background… that lively pattern and the delicious colors would look great with the grey raised beds and grey pea gravel paths!

  181. Adding fresh floral colors inside to welcome the hope of spring. Modern floral prints and stripes to refresh the interior of our home as we waiting for the trees and flowers to bloom outside.

  182. I have been adding orange/corals…i have never used this color too much but I am loving it!!

  183. Love the global inspired collection. I think it would add such a fun vibe to a neutral area that could use some spice!

  184. I am really loving blues lately especially when the summer can be so hot, it can be such a refreshing color.

  185. I keep my large pieces neutral, but I’m adding pops of color with turquoise and yellow!

  186. All of the colors are so rich and beautiful this year, but I am leaning toward blues, yellows, and greens. Thanks for the giveaway!

  187. I just moved recently and don’t have anything outdoors yet but love blues and greens. Thanks for the giveaway!

  188. I don’t know if this makes any sense to you, but I am choosing “bright pastels” for this year’s decorating color scheme.

  189. busy with my own home and painting plant stands and little boxes for a local studio…mustard yellow and pops of deep slate turquoise…beautiful combination~

  190. I’m doing a guest room in a Moroccan flavor so the bright exotics are igniting lots of color scheme ideas! I’m leaning toward coral, turquoise, purple, red and teal green. The walls are taupe so anything goes as an accent. The more fun the better.

  191. I have been working on a conversion of styles, from traditional to mid century mod, and aqua and white accents with natural wood seems to be calling to me!

  192. We have some metal furniture that needs painting – I think I am going with white (again!) and we’ll add some cushions w/ lots of green – Also grass seed, we need lots of that this year! :)

  193. I would say red, with pops of yellow and orange. Now if only spring would appear! Not fun waking up to snow again. Gotta love Minnesota!

  194. I love World Market! For summer, I am incorporating some aqua and yellow into my sunroom which is mainly cream and Granny Smith apple green :)

  195. I actually went crazy at World Market – it all started with my obsession with their ‘Warm Venice Paisley’ cushions and went from there. I love the bright colors and beautiful design. I threw in several of their richly colored hanging candle holders in different sizes to complete the look. Love it!

  196. Im doing my back patio in reds! Looking for a new converstation set with red cushions to really make the space cozy!

  197. I’m obsessed with mint this year! my house is turning into a mix of soft greens blues and creams but i need to punch it up with a couple bold colors!

  198. We just painted our dining room “Tropical Nut” which is kind of a burnt sienna color. Now, I need accessories! Thanks for the opportunity to win. =)

  199. I absolutely LOVE World Market- a lot of my home is decorated with it. My favorite outdoor item from World Market I snagged so far this year was one of the large plastic outdoor rugs with a demask like print on it. We will be doing Demask and Coral shapes I believe. Enjoy your World Marketing!

  200. I’m right on trend with turquoise and an orangey red!!!! I love color! That garden stool is gorgeous.

  201. I have a new condo and they are still building on the landscaping so I’m limited to the deck and front porch. I’m partial to making a bright scenrio adding some turquoise this year.

  202. I love World Market! I was there over the weekend – didn’t buy anything yet – but we’re revamping some outdoor spaces with lots of color! Green, peacock blue, yellow, orange, red and neutral furniture.

  209. I love almost all shades of green so I try to pull in different complimentary hues and then add splashes of color – purple, yellow – whatever I find that will pull it all together.

  210. I’ve been using blues and greens to decorate. We moved into our home about 6 months ago, and it still has a long way to go! Love World Market!!!

  211. Sounds like an odd combo but when we built our screen porch last year I bout furniture with aqua seat covers and soon decided to add in some olive green and coral for more color. I really like these colors together and keep looking for accessories to add in some more pops of color. THANKS!

  212. I’m using brown/cream giraffe print cushions & aqua umbrellas around my pool! Love the combo.

  213. I’m using pops of yellow inside for spring and summer and I’m using bright apple green on my front porch and screened in porch!

  215. Hi Kate,
    I’m using gray, yellows and just a touch of the newly-popular turquoise. Pretty!

  216. I’m using the acid-y green that’s popular right now and purple for outside. Inside we’re changing (slowly but surely) to a cottage look in blues, greens and sand colors. Your site constantly inspires me to do more! I can’t tell you how many pieces of furniture I’ve painted lately based on your inspiration. I’ve even got my 9 year old daughter hooked. She painted a bookcase last weekend by herself using your methods, and it turned out great! Thanks so much!!

  217. We moved into a new place recently, and have a beautiful deck to enjoy for the first time ever. I scored some second hand chairs in great condition and am planning on getting some bright accent pieces to pair with them. I haven’t quite decided on the color scheme yet! Turquoise or yellow are always good, also debating red…

  218. I’m loving a bold chevron stripe in navy and white for my outdoor decor this Spring! Thanks for hosting this great World Market gift card giveaway!

  221. My home is primarily decorated in shades of blue and gray and I’d like to add some pops of emerald or coral for accents.

  222. I am a big fan of yellow, green, and blue for our enclosed patio.
    That Peacock towel framed in a white Ikea frame would make the room complete!

  223. I just purchased a silvery blue umbrella for the patio, so that is setting the tone for the rest of any decor I get.

  224. Love love love World Market!! I’m decorating my outside this year with black and white stripes, black umbrellas and red geraniums. I love the combo.

    Amy from Colorado

  228. I’m using lime green and turquoise on the porch and patio — it looks fresh and ‘hot’ — I actually found a rug with both colors to pull it all together..

  229. Brightening our great room with pops of fresh sherbet – raspberry, orange and lime. Much less fattening than loading the freezer with ice cream; and almost as satisfying. Just different senses.

    The screened porch is getting a makeover with the colors of sea glass.


  231. I am redoing my master bedroom in shades of teal, green, yellow, white, and gray! My hubby and I are making our pool deck perfect for summer and I’m thinking some fun patterned outdoor cushions in teal or red will be perfect.

  247. I am going orange, turquoise, and purple this year for my outside spaces. I painted my huge picnic tables and benches bright turquoise and added soft orange cushions. I have a bunch of Moroccan lamps in various shades of blacks, whites, and turquoises that act as accents. I have been planting purple, orange, and white flowers in the front yard as well as in pots on top of and around the tables. I am loving the look, it goes perfectly with my light brick house.

  248. I am loving red. Chaise cushions with a bold red and white flower pattern. Red geraniums in white pots.

  249. I finally have enough green plants in my backyard that it is starting to look lush! Now that I have something nice to look at back there I have been decorating with bright colors. Nothing like a hot pink adirondack chair to make your morning coffee so much better!

  250. i really love the morroccan and bali influenced stuff. i want to decorate with greens, blues and a pop of red.

  251. I’m remaking my room, white, gray and …..I haven’t decided on a color, I’m thinking yellow but I really like blues and then again coral would be fabulous. Thank goodness I have time!

I have colors from Lowe’s: Beach(deep sandy color) Barnwood (sort of a cross of caramel and honey) Linen (speaks for itself) Sea grass (a pale green) Crystal Blue (a great blue gray sort of turquoise) and clotheline fresh ( very pale blue gray). I love the combo its very serene but it’s not boring. Thanks!

  286. I walk in the morning and this spring while walking on garbage day I snagged a piece of granite ( had to get the pick up and the husband to lift it) I’m thinking about making it into an outdoor table. It can withstand the elements and clean easy.

  287. I love brights and am replacing the cushions on the porch with a pattern that has lots of red in it.

  293. Orange!!! World Market have some beautiful oversized pillows in a soft velvety fabric

  294. Blues and greens… for now. I just painted a dresser I keep outside Turquoise. I actually have the outdoor sectional from World Market and change out the throw pillows several times thoughout the year. I make easy enevelope covers….so in a few months I’ll add some red white and blue, fall I do oranges, winter reds & bright greens (I am lucky enough to live in a place that we can use our outside patio year round) It’s really fun and a cheap way to change things up.

I found some great pillows at Marshalls with a a blue & beige ikat to mix with the striped ones I already had. I also purchased a couple of new plant containers to mix with ones I had sitting lonely in the garage. The doors going out to the lanai are flanked by brown and white coral print curtains I had made for our wedding, so I also plan to put a coral print rug under the furniture to tie the indoors to the out. Can’t wait for it all to come together!

  300. Accessories are turquoise and the plants are all the pretty succulent, sweet potato vine and coleus colors!

  301. This year we are planning to add more yellow and purple so that it will pop against the black mulch we laid and the black shutters on our house :)

  315. Yellow and chartroose are going to be the colors I am accenting with inside my living room this year!

  316. Our home is a “camaieu” (Engl.?) of blues (bold navy in the entry and upstairs landing, pale greyish blue in the bedrooms and different shade of pale grey blue in the living room) and sand colors (yellow undertones) in dining room. I am adding some tangerine(orange-pink-red mix) pops this year starting with our front door. :)
    Wondering if the capiz hanging pendant from Worldmarket might work over a pull string lamp that is now in our living room (removed a closet but did not rewire everything and nightmare to find an attractive pull sting ceiling fixture! I might need to hack one).

  317. I know it’s still trendy but I still love the chevron pattern and will be adding several pops of color in my home. We just repainted our kitchen cabinets white and I love the way it’s freshened up the space and I can’t wait to see the rest of the home transform along with it! Great giveaway!

    This year, I am drawn to yellow. Mix in some orange and green and I’ve got a party goin’ on! :)

  324. I was just perusing their site yesterday and thinking how much I loved their outdoor pillows this year! I also adore their vintage inspired sort of Tolix industrial chairs! But what do you think of metal outdoor furniture? I am in Ohio and it gets pretty hot here. Would I be able to sit in one in August?

  325. I’m starting with the new earth tones in Jacquard Products’ textile colors and decorating a new house with abstract art and fabrics that fit those tones.

  326. I’m really liking the chevron pattern this spring and am looking for ways to incorporate it into my decor.

  337. Hello! I’m doing cobalt and mint pots with coral flowers! cannot wait for summer!

  338. Going to continue with the colors in my cushions I bought last year at Costco, with blues and greens on a background of brown. However, I’m thinking of incorporating some pops of Coral as well to freshen it up. After such a long winter and a spring that has felt like winter, here in the midwest, I’m looking for anything fresh to brighten things up!

  339. Sweet!!

    I am decorating with gold, yellow, green, blue and trying to incorporate some red and pink too!!

  346. I’m usually a light/aqua blue with tapes and grays but I’m loving navy right now and trying to find ways to encorporate it. I’m also loving some floral/birds as well as the classic geometric shapes

  347. I was also in WM yesterday, and I loved all of the new Summer decor. The new Solano Outdoor Sectional was my favorite! Oh, how I just want to sprawl out on that comfy sofa on a warm Summer afternoon!

  348. I am loving colors from nature, especially light purples, greens and white. It just makes the whole house feel like spring.

  349. My outdoor pots are bright blue and I have bright reds, oranges, yellows and pinks for my flowers and my outdoor pillows. So fun!

  350. Outside I’m using a sea of blue colors, everything from cobalt to turquoise in glazed pots of varying sizes and heights and added a new bird feeder and bird house in blue also. Unfortunately, windy KS doesn’t allow for pillows and I’m hesitant to put a rug down considering my plastic Adirondacks keep sliding all over the deck :( Color has to come in the form of heavier items and I’m LOVING their chairs and the colorful stools. I would love to add some red or coral on the deck to carry my living area colors outside!

  351. I’m decorating with navy and white…I’ve got two little boys rooms to decorate. One is moving out of the nursery into his big boy room and the other is moving into the nursery, so we are changing it up a little for him.

  352. Well, my daughter is getting married this year and I would like to have our deck and patio area to look super nice. I was thinking of blue striped cushions since they would blend in next to the pool water. Thanks for the opportunity to win a gift card.

  353. Just bought a new navy sofa so the accent colors I’m gearing towards are cream and some turquoise thrown in. I would LOVE a World Market gift card and know exactly what I would purchase with it. I’ve been eying the Cute as a Button Chair. Fingers crossed!

  354. I am really liking turquoise, aqua, sea glass, etc for accents both inside and outside. I love red or orange to go with those colors for my flowers.

  355. Spring is taking WAY TOO LONG to arrive over here, so I’m thinking a nice goldenrod would be appropriate!

  356. Since red is my favorite color, I always have some red indoors and out, but I think this year I want to add some other bright colors to the mix. I love aqua and yellow mixed with red. I can’t wait to get started!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  357. I love that store! I was just there to wander and gaze and drool. What a wonderful place for inspiration. And I fell in love with those same color candle small hurricanes.

    I’m sticking with my favorites…blue, green, and yellow. “We” (Hubby) just finished the backyard sprinkler and drip systems, so now we are waiting for the concrete guy to pour our edging and a few concrete pads to extend the patio. Then some sod can go in…and we’ll enjoy it all summer long from the air-conditioned house!

    Living in Phoenix can be tricky…

  358. We just purchased our first house, so I am going crazy picking out furniture and outdoor decor! So far my outdoor color combinations are teal, yellow and lime but I’m wanting to add in some orange or coral to brighten it up some more. I love the pieces you picked out!

  359. We are doing teal and orange for our colors. We need bright colors out here in West TX because everything is dead and brown from the drought.

  360. I’m crazy in love with all shades of gray & chevron always catches my eye! :)

  361. Outside the colors pop! Lots of red, orange, yellow – bright colors reflecting our south Florida sun. Inside, neutral, soothing colors reign with pops of red. Gotta have my red:)

  362. I am loving the orange and teal colors! Might even through in some greens depending on what I find. Love summer!

  363. I’m using white and martha stewart metallic glaze in mercury in large arrowed stripes (basically the zoom-in of a chevron pattern) to spruce up a unfinished round wood end table into a snazzy nightstand. :)

  364. We’re closing on a new house May 22nd…so I’m excited to even consider doing stuff on our big new deck!! I’ll lean towards bright colors, for sure


  366. I’ve been searching for a chocolate brown and white stripe to put with a small turquoise print …. But that being said …I love all color and can be swayed to the colorful eclectic side of decor in an instant !

  367. Thick orange and white stripe fabric sitting on a black and grey concentric rectangle patio. I’m feeling very graphic and bold.

  368. Seascape (bright blue) Rustoleum spray paint for a little metal table I keep on the patio for barbecue-ing…love World Market–just scored a great mirror I had been keeping my eye on there–for 50% off, yaaay!

  369. We are doing blues and purples with our flowers but I always stick with beige and neutrals for my decorating… it calms me so much! Love all of your ideas. :)

  370. I am trying my hand at bright, colorful accessories for my subdued kitchen. Orange, blue, green, red, yellow. Thinking colors that make me happy!

  371. I just started working on our patio area, painting our furniture a light teal & bringing in pops of yellow & red in pillows & plants. I love World Market, thanks for the giveaway!

  372. I’m decorating with aqua and orangey coral outside and I love it! I’ve gotten several things that were just right at World Market. But our upstairs needs an overhaul and that dresser you posted would be the perfect piece to get started!

  373. I haven’t decided yet! I’m pretty sure it will be navy and white, but I can’t decide what accent color I’m using. Maybe bright yellow? Perhaps turquoise? Both?!

  374. I’m loving gray and yellow right now, we just redid our guest room in those colors!

  375. I’m doing teal and orange in one area and blue, gray and yellow in another. Love those chairs!

  376. I will be adding some Caribbean sea inspired colors to our deck this summer. Lots of deep blues mixed with turquoise green!

  377. I’ve just redone a bathroom and bedroom and I painted Agreeable Gray SW; I absolutely love it as a new neutral, now just trying to find artwork for the bedroom and accent colors. I’m leaning toward sea glass, corals, and turquoise…

  378. I am working on my patio area and looking to do greens, reds with creme/beige.. Lots of plants with color.. Working with complementary patterns and dark woods. Love your blog, just recently stumbled on to it and have passed on to friends! Thanks for the giveaway..

  379. I’m loving the teals/oranges. I love World Market – was just there on Sunday!

  380. Orange and blue and a little red outdoors this year, that is if winter ever ends here in SD.

  381. I’m concentrating in my living room these days and am using teal, orange and yellow.

  382. Loving the whole summer line at World Market. My living room is bright and cheery decorated in peacock colors so I’m really digging the color collection they have. I love to incorporate outdoor elements inside and make my front and porches feel relaxing-like your inside. Backwards, huh? But I love it! For the porches, I’m crushing on the bright colors-orange, pink, emerald green-decorating with lots of flowers, lanterns and outdoor rugs. On the lookout now for funky containers for flowers!. Can’t wait to stop in at World Market and see all the new stuff. My wallet and husband are already in protest!

  383. anything jewel toned + multicolored! i literally have to restrain myself from browsing world market on a daily basis!

  384. Citrus colors!!! Happy oranges, yellows and greens. I’m hoping it livens things up a bit!!

  385. Don’t really have a color scheme for the outside area, but am concentrating on getting as many colors as possible planted in the garden. Love the English garden look – organized chaos!

  386. I just got a brass candelabra from an elderly relative. No one else wanted it, ugly, but after reading your blog, i knew i could do something with it! Found the post about the free brass chandy you painted white, wa-la! Thank you for so many helpful ideas that are rapidly making me a lady in waiting to the queen of spray paint.
    P.S. I am redecorating my family room using in Ikat fabrice that has red, yellow, green and aqua in it. bright and cheerful.

  387. We’re building a new house and are supposed to close in 2-3 weeks. I am changing my whole color scheme and my new house will be decorated with turquoise, navy, and greens. I sure would love to go shopping at World Market!!!

  388. I am kind of in love with yellow, red and turquoise right now. I’ve always loved exotic prints; even before I met my Nigerian in-laws who bring me loads of gorgeous clothing and art pieces from their country. World Market is one of my fave places; you are so sweet for offering a non-sponsored giveaway!

  389. There’s green everywhere this year. On my walls, pillows, blankets. And of course, in the garden.

  390. Right now I’m in the middle of two different things- light and airy in our master bath and something darker for Evie’s big girl room.

  391. I’m not sure what I’m doing, but I’m getting ready to move in to a new house so I would love it to help me figure out what I’m doing.

  392. Well, I’d like to get some grass growing in the front yard so while I’m out there working on that, I’d love to put some cushions on an adirondack chair – one of the colors would have to be the apple green (gotta have green out there somewhere!)

  393. Hi Kate! I’m on the blue-and-white geometrics train right now. (I’ve never left the blue-and-white train, but the pattern changes occasionally.)

  394. Going with some big chevron stripes on the wall – just can’t decide between neutral and navy!

  395. Love, love, love World Market!! I tend to keep things pretty neutral, but when spring and summer come around so does the color. I love using entertaining decor/accessories in crisp whites, blues, greens, yellow and orange. Thanks for your generosity!

  396. Scoping out chairs for the front porch – looking at bold jewel tones to compliment our blue house!

  397. I’m definitely into turquoise/aqua these days. Every accessory I buy is that color.

  398. Pops of orange and turquoise inside. Outside, our deck is still covered with snow – bleh!! Once it goes, I’ll have a better idea of what I’ll do there!

  399. was JUST at world market in our city yesterday wanting to buy the Laguna patio set. Love love love. thank you for offering this! definitely want bright colors and chevron pattern :)

  400. I love World Market even though there are no stores in CT. I visited the store in Mountain View, CA while visiting a friend. I recently re-did my living room and love the blues and purples that are out there. Now I need some accents. Love your blog and website. You’ve inspired me to re-invent some furniture by painting it.

  401. My patio set is black glass & metal and my swing is black so my cushions are going to be coral and turquoise. Or maybe teal. Haven’t decided yet.

    Thanks for the giveaway. I love World Market. I could spend hours just walking around there.

  402. I love anything chevron! I’ve got my eye on a few different things… deciding is the hard part!

  403. I am always partial to yellow but also have a lot of greens and blues in my near-the-beach home!
