What a perfect way to start the week...with a party! A "Mood Board Monday" party to be exact! This is such a great way to see the creativity that exists out there. The premise simple, Sarah from Pewter & Sage chooses an inspiration, gives a few options and each "guest" puts together a mood board and shares, easy and fun. This time the party is all about Etsy artwork, Sarah gave participants three pieces to choose from:
1) "Romance of Fall" by photographer Carl Christensen
2) "Live Colorfully" by Him & Her Abstract Art
3. "Bird Art Community Tree" by Cori Dantini
I really went outside of my personal comfort zone and chose the abstract art "Live Colorfully" by Him & Her Art because the colors really spoke to me and I am not normally drawn to abstracts like this. I felt there was a great vibe to the piece, so I decided to go with a vintage preppy look by going all pink and green....
Starting by taking the fabulous painting and adding an ornate gold frame and wide mat, I felt that this would play off the traditional style of the room and give the piece some presence since it is not large (16" x 20"). The pale pink wall color would be fresh, yet read almost as a neutral and the floor (which of course is a wide planked, deeply stained hardwood) would be covered with the bold, bright rug.
The vintage bar cart and chairs just said fun to me, and who could resist the crewel draperies and emerald beaded sconces? Of course, no bar is complete without the accoutrements to mix up a mean cocktail!
Thanks Sarah, for hosting the best party around....I always enjoy being a part of it! Be sure to take some time and see what others have come up with for Mood Board Monday.
Have a great week and if the weather by you is forecast to be anything like it is here in Wisconsin this week, enjoy the taste of Spring!
