DESIGN BOARD




Not only is my house a mess because of re-decorating a certain area for some insane reason I decided to clean out my closet.

If I would learn to prioritize my life [think finish one project before starting another] then I would be an almost perfect human being.

Yeah....like that's my only fault.

I now have 4 bags that are marked: sister, Goodwill, consignment and what was I thinking.

Sometimes when I am shopping I get it in my head that I am either a.) a supermodel or b.) 27 years old 

For your information I am neither.

Too many drugs in the 60's causes delusional moments.  Yes.....I was alive in the 60's.

I did manage to put together a design board for a kitchen dining area.

The space is very light and bright with many windows.


I love this fresh floral fabric from Sarah Richardson's line with Kravet.  As you will see on the board the furniture is pretty masculine so this will help to soften it up.


Starting with the chairs from RH they were covered in an indoor/outdoor fabric called Fog.  It is kind of a blue gray color.


The table has a zinc top for durability.  The light fixture is from Ballard Designs.  All of these items have been purchased.



To be added is a banquette out of the stripe fabric which is from Perennials

Here is the inspiration picture
I am not exactly positive who did this but I know it came from Atlanta Magazine.  I love the back and it will be against windows also.

The idea of using the raffia wallpaper from Thibaut will help warm things up.

If floral isn't her thing then I have a backup.....OK so maybe this one has floral in it also but it's more monochromatic.

Then I got really crazy and changed the wallpaper to this Schumacher favorite!


We will see....of course even my backups have a backup.

Somebody WILL be making a decision!

Happy Friday.  

Don't forget about the giveaway.  Y'all sure do like butterflies.

Stop it! Every time you share a design board with us I want to redecorate and imitate it.

Love the design board and the inspiration photo!! I have been looking for a raffia wallpaper and the Thibaut you've shown looks perfect! Can't wait to see it come to life!!

Deb said...

Now I officially want to redo my dining room! Love the grays. And love the zinc top table. I also sometimes forget I am not 27 and not a supermodel!!

Usually I have a favorite but I love every one of these options equally. So gorgeous.

I was was pretty young in the sixties but the seventies were some unusual times to be young in, I am here to tell you. I always think I can still wear the boho look like I did in '76...until I try it on.

I love the woven wallpaper but when I scrolled down to the Schumacher my heart skipped a beat. I would love to be in your client's position and have three equally gorgeous designs to agonize over. The first time I worked with a designer she presented me with one concept and I didn't like any of the fabrics. Not a one. I had shown her many magazine photos of the French Country look I wanted, and she gave me Paris high style. My heart sank as I smiled woodenly and wondered how to break it to her. I said nothing at the moment, I needed to process. A few days later I called and politely explained that I wasn't really jazzed about the design. Back to square one! That was fifteen years and three houses ago, and I've moved beyond the French Country look. Your client is one lucky lady! Best, Beth C.

I love how you put combinations together. I would die of happiness if I was that client!!

I really like that Schumacher wallpaper.

I've used that RH Fog on club chairs and it is great. So durable. You are so good!

Almost all are beautiful, especially coordinate colors, so classy. I think most "designer" rooms are over done. I like clean and simple. I love sophisticated furniture and d├ęcor.house decor

Cindy said...

Oh lord, i love that floral fabric, in fact all of your swatches look heavenly together. The colors and textures are just wonderful.
...and i was around in the 60's too. Great music, good weed, pretty amazing, smile...
