Mood Board: Amy’s Living & Dining Space

Back with another mood board today!

Here’s what Amy had to say about her Living & Dining Space:

“Our living room/dining room is really a blank slate! The only items that should stay or possibly get incorporated into the space are the brown leather ottoman, small side table and black table in the entry way.  We are not attached to anything else! We plan to buy new furniture when we move since this is our rental but I am hopeful we can create a livable space for this house in the meantime and then we can incorporate some of those elements in our next home. I think my style is more contemporary. I definitely use my space but want it to look nice too.  I think I prefer casual modern glam chic if there is such a thing! But, would like my guy to feel comfortable in the space too.  I’ve attached samples of spaces I love. I like texture….  Like rustic with iron but softened with pillows, lighter colors etc.

This room is used mostly when we have people over which is fairly often. The dining table is used for family dinners and the living space is for hosting movie nights, superbowl parties etc. We had our Christmas tree in here this past December. We moved the TV to the left wall and placed the tree in front of the windows.

My hubby is a firefighter and therefore loves the color red.  I love rooms that have that one color that subtly pops throughout. But, red may be a bit bright for a living room? Perhaps burgundy? I am up for either color as the subtle color incorporated with neutrals or grays  My bedroom is done in black and grays and I am still attempting to make slate blue and dark purple my “pop” colors. I also love ivory.

We are not attached to the dining table and chairs, the couches or the stand the TV sits on. As I mentioned earlier it would be great to incorporate the small side table, brown leather ottoman (i think that offers a nice masculine touch to the room even though I am not a huge fan of brown!)  I have always planned to paint the dining table and redo the chairs-the project has just never happened!  I am soooo over the light pine color. I hate the dark brown couches. Since this is our in between house we have just been using furniture we have acquired over the years.”

And here’s what I came up with!

Custom Mood Boards | Cape27Blog.com

Note: As some of you may have noticed, I did not include links to the products within the mood board. Unfortunately, I’ve made the choice, based on several reasons, to no longer provide them here on the blog. As much as I’d love to, providing links a second time is extremely time consuming. HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean you won’t have access to sources! I create Pinterest boards specific to each and every mood board that I create. You can simply hop on over and scroll to find any product you may be interested in! Here’s the direct link to Amy’s Space!

Update: We’re taking a quick leave from mood boards and will NOT be accepting new clients for the time being. I’m currently booked through August, so we plan to reopen shop (or at least give an update) around that time. Thanks for your patience!

    I just can’t seem to get into the mood boards, although they look great. I guess I need to actually see them put to use in the client’s house to keep me interested. The outside looks great by the way.

      I agree with Sue. Every time i see the update for the day is a mood board, I skip right over it until some new content has appeared. I love your blog and what you’re doing with your house, but just get bored with the mood boards (which seem to be a lot of the blog content lately)
