Dining Room Mood Board

Christie's Colorful Dining Room

I recently put together a mood board for a friend of our's who wanted to bring more color and life into her dining room.  She loves gray, yellow and turquoise, so that's the color scheme I was working with.  I scoured her pinterest boards to get an idea of the overall look and feel she was drawn to, and this is what I came up with.

The table is similar to the one Christie already has, but I added some white chairs and colorful pillows to brighten it up.  Using mismatched chairs, rather than everything matching perfectly, adds some interest.  The buffet is similar to one she already has as well, only it was black.  Painting a big piece of furniture a bright color and adding a bold, striped rug is sure to bring life into a space.  I also noticed Christie had pinned various images of white floating shelves, so I add three of those to the board.  I just filled them up with random, colorful items.

Here are a couple pictures of the space before.  (You'll have to excuse the quality of the photos, as these were pics she texted to me.)

And here are a few more pictures Christie sent me that show off the progress she is making on her space.  It's definitely fun seeing a mood board come to life!

How about you?  Are you trying to bring life to a space just in time for summer?  That's exactly what I'm trying to do on our deck and our front porch.  Hopefully I'll have some progress to share with you soon.
