Mood Board Monday Reminder!!


Hi! Just wanted to remind you guys that this coming Monday, November 14th, is Mood Board Monday time again!

In honor of quickly approaching Thanksgiving (and all the other fun holidays where gathering around the table with family and friends is so important), we're going to be designing dining rooms based off of dinnerware. Here are the four sets of inspiration dishes you have to choose from:

1. David Stark Wood Slices-Organic Dinnerware from West Elm

{Designed by David Stark, loosely sketched tree rings printed on Wood Slices Organic Dinnerware bring the natural world to your table in gleaming gold metallic}

2. Penumbral Doily Dinnerware from Anthropologie

{Delicate lines of dainty crochet work are impressed upon glazed terracotta.}

3. Chirp Collection, from Lenox Simply Fine Dinnerware, available at Macy's

{A splash of bright watercolor-inspired birds and florals adorn each plate and the interiors as well as exteriors of bowls and mugs.}

4. Philippe Deshoulieres' "Dhara" collection, available at Bloomingdales

{Dhara is inspired by the side designs of a poetry manuscript from Saadi. The colors are inspired by the traditional saris from Penjab and Cachemire. Philippe Deshoulieres has been producing porcelain in the Limoges region of France for six generations.}

All beautiful in their own way (if I do say so myself), right? Feel free (or not) to add glassware, stemware, flatware, (anything else that ends in "ware"), serving pieces, table linens...however detailed you want to be about the actual table setting is up to you. Also, if you're into it, you are more than welcome to throw in touches of holiday decor as well.

So, just to recap:

1. This is a fun way to share all of the creativity out there and showcase how we can all start from one inspiration point and end up with a variety of ideas.
2. To be a participant, you need to create a complete mood board for a dining room using one of the four sets of inspiration dinnerware shown here.
3. On Mood Board Monday party day (Monday, November 14th in this case), come back here to link up to the party. You will need to include your sources in your post and give a brief description of the room and how you used the inspiration item.

Guess I should get started on my room, huh?! (Anyone else out there a major procrastinator? Like not on purpose, but you gotta do the stuff that's due first first and the rest later!) I know which dinnerware I want to use and I think I dogeared a table in one of the recent catalogs I was looking through, but other than that...

Thanks for taking the time to participate and I hope to see you (and your wonderful dining rooms) back here on Monday:)

Ps. Check out our previous Mood Board Monday Linky parties here: MBM01, MBM02, MBM03, MBM04, MBM05, MBM06, MBM07, MBM08, MBM09 and MBM10.


  1. i'm a major procrastinator. I'm half-way done but this one has been much more of a work in pieces type of board than my last one that's for sure. But it's all good, right? Fun stuff. Can't wait to see what you put together. Have a great night!

  2. I didn't realize these mood board parties went back to 2009 - wow! Must be fun to look back on what was going on in 2009 (not that it was that long ago but still how things change and how blogging has changed). Pretty cool that you've kept it up!!

  3. Thanks for the reminder, I'm going to try to make it to the party this time!
