Happy Monday friends!
Today is an extra special monday because it's .... Moodboard Monday again! Moodboard Monday is a monthly event hosted by the lovely Sarah of Pewter and Sage. Each month Sarah teams up with another blogger to pick the theme for the moodboard. This month's theme is dinnerware, and how it fits into a dining room. Sarah gave us four different, all beautiful, dinnerware sets to choose from. I chose to design a dining room around David Stark Wood Slices. I just love the gold, it's so perfect for this time of year.
For this board, I set out to create a room that is a a little moody, a little rustic and a little refined. I set out to pull in some darker wood tones and offset them with a lovely khaki green, gold highlights and a pop of light blue to keep the room from being too serious.
- The wall color would be a deep blue grey, Divine Almond from Miller Paint. Accent colors are khaki green, gold and dark wood.
- The Oslo sideboard is a perfect deep toned, but still modern, spot to serve food, hold accessories, etc.
- Above the sideboard is a lovely dining scene by Janet Hill Studio. I chose it for the lovely blues, yellow and pinks, but also because regardless of the lovely colors, it manages to still come across a bit moody.
- I would pair the woodcut dishes with rustic chargers, to keep them from looking too fancy, and striped blue napkins to add a dash of color and texture. A blue serving tray rounds out the color and adds a serving functionality.
- The dining table is the classic West Elm Parson's Table. Simple, beautiful and again, wood-toned. The Crate and Barrel side chairs bring in the khaki green color and are streamlined, yet still comfortable. The Anthropologie end chairs are just plain gorgeous :). A neutral patterned rug ties the dining space together and adds a dose of texture.
- A fun, funky light fixture hangs above the table and keeps the space from being too formal.
- Light, airy curtains balance out the bolder, darker, colors, texture and fabrics.
- Gold chevron diy artwork hangs on the opposite wall from the buffet.
