Mood Board Monday: Woodsy Glam Dining Room

Yippee!  It's time for another Mood Board Monday at Pewter + Sage!  This time, the challenge was to design a room around a set of dishware.  I picked this set from West Elm:




The pattern looks like the inside of a tree to me, so I knew I wanted to incorporate a natural, woodsy element in the room.  But, the gold immediately made me think "glamour."  Hmmm, woodsy glam dining room?  Could it work?

I've been drawn to the look of dark, lacquered walls lately.  The seem to embody an edgy, sophisticated elegance.  Here are a couple of shots of designer Todd Alexander Romano's New York studio:







Aren't those walls cool?  Actually I'm impressed with the whole space.  That is a STUDIO apartment?!?!?

Here's my Woodsy Glam Dining Room with blue lacquered walls:







Paint color - Old Navy by Benjamin Moore
Artwork - Cozamia
Antelope - West Elm
Mirror - Layla Grayce
Candles for table - Layla Grayce
Dishes - West Elm
Table - this is a wood slab table from BDDW
Fu Dog Lamp - Asian Ideas; I have second thoughts about including this.  One animal, the antelope, might be enough!
Glassware - Z Gallerie
Flatware  - Horchow
Rug -Dash and Albert from Layla Grayce
The chairs I chose didn't show up on my mood board.  But they are these classic Louis chairs from Ballard Designs:

Hi, Suzy!! Thanks so much for playing along again. Wow, we both picked the same dishes and are rooms are totally different! AWESOME! Love the idea of navy walls, and laquer? So cool! The glam mixed with the woodsy is really a beautiful combo. That slab table is phenomenal and I love the Dash and Albert rug. That forest pendant lamp is crazy!! You've got some good sources here, I've got to start expanding my horizons! Thanks again, I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with tomorrow:)

You rocked it girl! Woodsy glam dining room - what a great concept. And your inspiration photos are really awesome - that's a studio??!! I really love the pendant lighting and the table as well - very cool. Great job Suzy. We need to start a design board discussion on how everyone puts theirs together - I love the color that you incorporated too but I never know how to set a color to my background. Anyway, great work - looking forward to checking out more of the boards.

So much awesome stuff in this room! I love that chandelier, it's insane (in a great way!) I love seeing how different all of our rooms are. I think I could move right in to your's for some turkey dinner ;)

LOOOOOOVE it! i am so digging those plates and have been coveting them, but have no money for nor need for them! :)

I love all of the textures that go so well off of those plates. And the shape of each piece is so interesting but still refined and subtle -- love it!

Fantastic board Suzy! I love that you chose a Cozamia piece and love all the accessories - candlestands, the tray. Definitely very glamorous.

What a gorgeous mood board! I'm having a hard time choosing a favorite item, but I think I'm between the chandelier and the mirror. Or maybe the wallpaper....

So, so, sophisticated. That table is amazing too.

I'm loving your woodsy dining room! That table is amazing and I live the gold you've worked in around the accessories. It's just a perfect room for the china that you picked.
