Anne @ The City Sage on Mar 16, 2009 Congrats you lovely ladies on being featured today on the Real Simple blog. And another gorgeous board, as usual! Rachel on Mar 16, 2009 I love this palette. Your inspiration boards break down the colours so well, making them easy to replicate in real life. andrea on Mar 16, 2009 who is the artist of the fabulous piece hanging from the wall. i love it and it would be perfect in a space i am currently designing. thanks. andrea Megan on Mar 16, 2009 It's definitely an interesting color choice, but I really like it! Never would have dreamed those colors work so well together. sera on Mar 16, 2009 I love this. This is so close to what I am building for my wedding now. Only I included some more midnight blue and art deco inspired bits and pieces. When it's done I'll put it up on my blog. I particularly love the flower, rose? ranuncula? other? Where did you get it? courtney on Mar 16, 2009 so romantic! beautiful! Kelly on Mar 17, 2009 Oh, I love how soft this board is. And the room- it gives me home ideas too! perfect bound on Mar 17, 2009 The piece above the wall looks like stretched fabric. Is it? Lovely. I adore putty and gold. It's very exotic yet familiar and warm. Amy@OldSweetSong on Mar 17, 2009 Y'all should take a 5. Your inspiration boards are too awesome. My head is exploding a little bit. Chatterberries on Mar 17, 2009 Nice color combination, very great idea! So sweet,! Missy on Mar 17, 2009 Love it! The colors are so unique. 100layercake on Mar 19, 2009 Andrea, We're not sure who the art is from on the wall, sorry! We've had that bit in our research file for such a long time. It sort of looks like it could be a Marimekko print stretched on a canvas? Sera, the ranuncula photo is from Saipua. Caroline on May 12, 2009 Hey, I have some limited info on that painting... It is definitely based off of a fabric pattern. I know because I painted the exact same thing last year and that was my inspiration : ) In fact, that might not be a painting at all, but a fabric-wrapped canvas. Unfortunately I can't find the fabric online anymore to give you the manufacturer or pattern name, but I do remember it came in multiple colorways.
