Mood Board: Dining Room

I loved doing the mood board so much I am making another one. Except this time its based on design. I am actually used to doing something similar when planning a concept for a space to design. However, this is more of my personal taste. I get so inspired at work seeing new fabrics and pieces that I would LOVE to use, but we may not have a client that would love them too. So I want to pull some of those AMAZING pieces and make my own design in hopes that one day I can use them to maybe design my own dream home??
And now coming back to reality...I also hope to start posting about getting a "look" for less. Certain styles that are very popular may be wayyy to expensive to reproduce. So I want to help you out by showing you comparable designs to give you the same "look" for a lot less.
Moving on, this mood board is designed as a chic, yet rustic space. I would definitely strive to achieve this look if/when I get to design my own dining room (or maybe a friend that loves this too??). The color palette is fun but soothing. Its sophisticated and updated but not so formal that I couldn't eat in there every night. I love mixing textures and I think the polished look of the lighting and mirror contrast in such a nice way against the table. And of course the pop of color is teal :D

  1. I absolutely love this look! I was thrilled to see this rug is stillmavailable. Can you please tell me where I can find the herringbone patterned table?

    1. I want that rug for my home! I wish I knew where the table came from...maybe someone just DIYed it?
