Fresh Inspiration: Moody Peonies


Flipping through the January's Martha Stewart Living, I was struck by the colors of this beautiful photo. I love peonies. I love most flowers... but especially peonies because they are just the right mix of formal and informal. This office design board is inspired by the peony arrangement's inky, but fresh palette. 

It was kind of a fun stretch for me to create this, since I usually don't go for such moody colors! I pulled from the ivory and pink buds, with a little plum and navy. I built everything around the beautiful campaign desk from ABC Carpet & Home... it's way out of my price range, but I love it. So let's call it DIY inspiration.

This mood board almost fits my living room. My next plan is to install paneling and wallpaper like this one!
I have a chain link carpet navy and creme, red sofas....

I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to hire you one day to decorate my house for me. So in love with those toss pillows, and that wallpaper...wow!
