Sexy Swedish

As promised, here’s the inspiration board based on this photo from Things That Inspire. I was so attracted to the soothing hues and interesting shapes and textures:


The resulting collage…


Turned Pedestal dining table and Moulure Ledge shelving, Brocade Home; Kate Spade Rutherford Circle dinnerware; Arne Jacobsen Ant Chair at Bonluxat; Mary Upholstery Fabric in natural by Rubie Green; Jonathan Adler Pinch Vase; Isa Chandelier at Jayson Home and Garden; Jonathan Adler Plume Rug; Carthage Lantern, Jayson Home and Garden; background fabric is Petter from Country Swedish.

In imagining this dining area I tried to avoid the obvious–which
would have been an assemblage of Swedish-style objects–and instead
drew from the bulbous forms of the clocks, the muted yellows and aquas,
and the ornate surfaces of the carved woods. It’s sort of a
quietly sexy mod take on inspiration shot. The jury’s still out on how
I feel about the result. What do you think?
