Friday mood board 5.3.19

 

With this mood board, I’m dreaming up a guest bedroom or a girl’s bedroom in need of some redecorating (for a young lady who has outgrown the child’s room look).

I started with the wallpaper from Shumacher because I like the timeless and traditional sense it brings to the room, and it feels fresh but sophisticated. I’m using it as the anchor here to set the tone.

 

I’ll do curtains in Wild Iris by Robert Kime, trimmed and lined in the blush check by Scalamandre. The check would also look nice on a cushion for the vintage wicker chaise. As a compliment fabric, the headboard and bedskirt would be done in this gorgeous oyster linen from Bennison.

I’d furnish the room with an antique secretary like this one from Tone on Tone Antiques in a light green patina finish and a vintage wicker chaise, and accessorize with vintage wicker trunks, an antique tulipiere, and crepe myrtle topiaries.

Last but certainly not least, because I believe that original art greatly enhances the atmosphere of a room and of a home in general, I’ve selected a contemporary landscape by artist Christen Yates, which I found through art dealer Liza Pruitt (who is especially fond of connecting art with people and making it fun and interesting).

Of course, feel free to use this mood board as inspiration for any project you have in mind. We’ll be posting a Friday Mood Board each week, and we’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas (because they inspire us!).

Cheers! Holly and Brooke
