Mood Board Monday: Wisteria Dresser

I came across Sarah's blog recently, and saw that she has a semi-regular party making mood boards! How fun! I signed right up, and today I'm showing you an imaginary room featuring this marvelous dresser from Wisteria.

I decided to design an imaginary dining room, that would be small and intimate, but still very elegant. This dresser turned buffet wouldn't fit in just anywhere! The palette (1)is really rich and layered, but still laidback, so that the dresser is still the focus of the room. The wall color would be Smoky Charcoal by Glidden. The aged silver of the dresser is repeated in the chandelier, mirror and napkin rings. The rest of the colors from the room are pulled from this painting (3) with lots of warm neutrals, light and dark green and smoky blue grays.

I'd hang this painting (3) over the dresser, opposite the large windows across my imaginary dining nook. The windows would be framed in ivory silk duponi drapes (4) and this beautiful and eclectic chandelier (5) would hang in the middle of the room. Beneath it, this blue gray rug (6) would add a bit of modern pattern, and provide a cozy cover for this classic white pedestal table (7). This room would be a place to settle in and enjoy a lazy morning or a long evening, so these upholstered chairs (8), in sage linen, would provide plenty of comfort.

This pewter mirror (9) would reflect even more light, as well as the view of the pretty chandelier. The topiaries (10) would sit on the dresser/buffet, and I'd finish off the room with a lovely table setting (11) of this beautiful china with a great pattern, some cream colored napkins with silver rings and sparkling crystal.

So there you have it. A beautiful imaginary dining room with loads of color and comfort, and lots of glam. Sources are below. Hope you enjoy!

Hi, Jenny!!! So glad you came to the party...thanks so much, I was beginning to panic when there was only 3 of us:)

Yay for the German Silver Bowfront!!! Too funny that you did a dining room as well...love your mood board, what a great collection you've put together. I would love to share a meal in this room. That chandelier is gorgeous, and I love the upholstered sage chairs. I've been on the hunt for some good topiaries, I like how you incorporated them into the room. Beautiful palette with lots of sparkles:) Thanks so much for participating!!!

Last year Making it Lovely did a series of posts surrounding a mirrored dresser from ZGallerie - from a baby's nursery to her first apartment. I have loved mirrored dressers ever since and it looks fabulous in your mood board!
