Sarah's dining room moodboard

I've drawn up a moodboard for Sarah's dining room.  She has a dark stained table and chairs....and that's about it.  I don't have a place for my large Marimekko kaiku birch print in the next house, so I'm giving it to her for the moment, and that is the inspiration for this room.

Her dining set has dark chairs that match the table.  For some contrast we'll paint the chairs.  I'd like to paint them citron, Sarah prefers turquoise.  

Breezy white curtains will go on either side of sliding doors leading to the backyard. 

The unfinished wood of the Ikea sideboard is a nice complement to the cool aqua walls.  Under the sideboard these two ikat baskets can hold table linens and other supplies.  Over the sideboard will be a round white mirror.  The one in the board is a discontinued one from Ballard, but I'm hopeful that we can thrift one inexpensively.

On top of the sideboard I put this wire mouse from CB2, because its whimsical, and Sarah has forbidden me to put birds in her house.  So, 2 foot high rats instead!


  1. Looks great! I still haven't gotten the hang of moodboards, but yours always look so nice:)

  2. I like it! And I love your last sentence here.
