A very good friend of mine gave me the awesome idea of creating design boards inspired by images from the Pacific Northwest to share on my blog! I am really excited that spring is coming to Portland, and very much enjoying all the cherry blossoms, so I thought I would use an image of these beautiful trees for my first PNW Inspired post!
What is so fun about using an image like the one above as inspiration for a room is that there are so many directions to take the design plan! But today, this is the direction I decided to go with the space!
I obviously needed to bring in shades of pink to reflect the flower blossoms from the picture, so I chose to do this with the area rug and artwork. It would have been really easy for this room to go very traditional and very formal, so I opted to layer the blush colored rug over a sisal rug for a more casual vibe. I brought the room more contemporary with the abstract painting and the clean lines in both the coffee table and the double sconces with cylinder shades.
The cerused oak finish on the end tables reflects the worn wood of the bridge in the picture and I moved a rich shade of green around the room to reflect the beautiful grass. I love these velvet slipper chairs, and I really love the window pain in the green throw pillows as it reminds me of a men's suiting pattern ... which combined with the tuxedo back sofa and indigo lumbar pillows juxtapose just enough masculine to a room that all started from a picture of pink flowers!
