An inspiration board.

I’m currently working on the chair project, but in the meantime I’ve let myself imagine how it all might come together. So far I’m digging it! I’m always fighting with the Dusty Turquoise Fedora flor tiles I bought for the rug here. It is a dusty baby blue that I love, but it’s much too blue for the rest of the turquoise space, and the muted color is the same intensity as the orange in the sofa so the two really don’t complement each other that well. I’ve been considering moving those tiles to the conference area and getting a new rug for this space, but just the thought of spending $500-$750 on a new rug is a little stomach churning. Here’s my idea for tying it in without going overboard (or over budget!).

My shopping list for this look:

Lamps: Aqua Interlace Giclee Paley White Table Lamp, $99 at Lamps Plus

Vases: Hive Vases, $24-34 at West Elm

Coffee Table: $0 – It doesn’t exist. At least not on my shopping list. I’ve seen some white laquer coffee tables around, including one that is similar to this with a nice inset magazine holder at The Haymaker Shop, but I’m holding out for a used one or more bucks in my budget.

I’m also looking for a modern upholstered bench to put opposite the coffee table. I need more seating for client meet and greets. Something low that won’t block the supreme couch view would be perfect.

I’m completely stumped for artwork… I’d love to hear your suggestions, finds, or new ideas!
