Today brings a second installment of Mood Board Monday (this time hosted by the lovely Tracy of Comfort & Luxury). This week's challenge is to design a room around one of two Anthropologie chairs (I chose the Antwerp chair pictured above for its colorful paisley pattern and lovely traditional shape). I decided that, while a chair like this certainly deserves to be the star of the show, it also needs pieces that can stand up to it a bit -- items and fixtures that could balance all of this fabulousness with a bit of...gravitas, shall we say?
Something along the lines of this:
Source list: 1. Paint Color: Slate Teal from Benjamin Moore. 2. Antique Maps from V&J Duncan (Eastern Hemisphere, ca. 1835 ($85) and England & Scotland, c. 1732 ($375)). 3. Adjustable Floor Lamp from Circa Lighting ($315). 4. NY Public Library table lamp from Circa Lighting ($420). 5. Portuguese Desk from Restoration Hardware ($1495). 6. Paisley Pillows from Anthropologie ($98-$115). 7. Conrad Sofa from Jayson Home & Garden ($5,495). 8. Paisley Rug in Ivory from Madelaine Weinrib.
