I'm so excited to participate in Mood Board Monday today. As we talked about on Friday, the theme for this month is etsy artwork. And, I made this a true challenge by choosing a piece of art that I wouldn't normally consider for my house - even though it's beautiful. My goal was to incorporate pink (!) into a feminine space, but keep it a little edgy so it doesn't creep into the girly-girl zone. Let's take a look at my board:
- The walls of the living room will be a dark, rich gray. Specifically, Nightfall by Benjamin Moore. This is the perfect back drop to allow the pink, orange and white elements of the room to really pop.
- Live Colorfully by Him and Her Abstract.
- Caravan-Pacific Lighting. Love. These.
- Wall of bookshelves. Technically, not for sale. But there are instructions on this blog for making it and I would in a heartbeat. Perfect for this space.
- I tried to resist the fuzzy bench, but resistance was futile. Besides adding so much texture to the space, perched in front of the bookshelves, it adds personality to boot.
- The pillows, both from West Elm, I kept neutral. One of sparkly gold, again for a little boost of texture - a bling! - and the other is a subtle pattern.
- Bone side table.
- Quartz terrarium. Every space needs a little green.
- I've had my eye on this tufted chesterfield sofa for awhile. It might have inspired the room more than the art ;)
- Again, not technically for sale, but the minute I came across this AMAZING pink chair I knew I had to include it. For inspiration, if nothing else. It's the star of the show. In real life, I'd recommend finding a gorgeous chair and reupholstering with bright pink fabric.
- Caster coffee table.
- A little bling in the form of gold nesting bowls.
- And last, but certainly not least, is this gorgeous antique rug to pull it all together. I love how the muted red/pinks and blues bring together the dark walls and the bright colors.
So what do you guys think? Did I achieve feminine with a little edge? I'm actually really excited about this room. I loved exploring pink and I can actually see myself living and enjoying this room.
