I chose the Old Hickory Tannery green leather chair as inspiration for my board...the color, the curvy lines, and the leather were calling to me.
I knew I wanted to creating a seating area within a bedroom for my board. The seating area would act as a spot to read, sip coffee or tea in the mornings, and just an area of relaxation. I wanted the room in general to be very casual but yet romantic and pretty. My vision as a whole for the room is a Breezy Day, Romantic Retreat.
After I chose the chair, I also came across this Magnolia Vine wallpaper by York Wallcoverings. It's beautiful, it has the color palette I was going for, and I knew it would be perfect to define the wall of the seating area.
From there I chose the Marco canopy bed by Oly to mimic the height achieved by the papered seating area wall.
It's funny with these Mood Board Monday boards, I always have a pseudo "client" that I'm designing for but I also tend to lean toward something I'd want to live in myself. I take the main inspiration and find a few other key elements and roll from there. I've found some really wildly talented Etsy sellers recently, so be sure to check out the few that I've sourced below here for more goodies. I love Etsy - it's a great source for original, one-of-a-kind artwork.
Here are the rest of my sources starting at the top left corner and working clockwise:
Fabric for drapes - John Robshaw for Duralee
Hardware - Overstock
Lighting - Thomas O'Brien for Circa Lighting
Portrait - Etsy seller Janet Hill (love her work!)
Abstract - Etsy seller Karine Leger (a new-to-me seller who has great pieces of original art)
Oh Darling print - Etsy seller Lorraine Veronica
Basket - Terrain (thought this could be a catch all for colorful scarves, or clutches)
Wallpaper - York Wallcoverings
Side table - Serena & Lily
Chair - Horchow
Magazine rack - Etsy seller Pine & Main
French press (yum) - Zappos

If you have some time, please visit Pewter + Sage to check out the rest of the boards that have been drafted using chairs as inspiration. I love seeing what everyone has come up with and finding some new fun sources too.
(Ever hit "publish" by mistake...that's what I just did...oops)
What do you think...could you enjoy a breezy day in this room? What other words come to mind?
