Mood Board Monday Linky Party: John Robshaw Textiles

8.19.2012


Hi there! Welcome to the 14th Mood Board Monday Linky Party! So glad you could make it:)

The inspiration for this week's rooms is unbelievably gorgeous and versatile. I am so excited to see what you've come up with because the possibilities really are endless. I mean, what happens when you combine six beautiful hand block-printed fabrics from the amazing John Robshaw with a group of super talented creative, DIY, design gurus?! Ah! My brain is going to explode, its going to be so good:) 

Remember, Mood Board Monday is all about seeing how different people are inspired differently by the same thing. So, I've given you three different combinations of Robshaw's textile to choose from (all hand block printed on fine linen and available only to the trade). You must include both patterns from the pairing in your room (as drapery, upholstery, pillows, etc...whatever you want to do).

JR Fabric Combo No. 1: Citadel Umber and Madura Vista




JR Fabric Combo No. 2: Algiers Lotus and Jajam Brinjal




JR Fabric Combo No. 3:  Twine Light Indigo and Bagru Indigo




**********

Here's my mood board for the week. I knew I wanted to use combo #3, the Indigo fabrics, and I started out trying to do kind of a study/sitting room. It wasn't really exciting me though, so I switched to something a bit more unexpected for this fabric, a girl's nursery. I'd make (ha! someone would make for me!) a crib skirt out of the dark navy geometric and I'd upholster the glider in the light blue diamond pattern. To make things a bit more feminine and to keep the room from being too monochromatic, I actually added in a third Robshaw fabric, Ginger Coral, which I would use for the drapes (thus adding that pop of coral/pink/red).



1. The palette: I'd paint the walls in a light, creamy, coral pink to keep things girly. The light and dark blues will contrast nicely. I'd pull in some warm brown tones from the drapes as well - like for the dresser, baskets and rug.
2. I actually went to a third John Robshaw fabric, a floral - Ginger Coral, because I loved it so much, to really pull this room together. I'd make the curtains out of it.
3. The Time to Turn in Crib in White from Land of Nod keeps things bright and classic and the turned spindles add that girly touch.
4. On the crib skirt, one of the inspiration fabrics, Robshaw's Bagru Indigo. (I tried to do a little mock up of it actually on the crib for myself...I really need to see these big blocks of color when putting the room together, it is hard for me to find the right balance of things just saying "Imagine this white crib skirt was navy blue!")
5. The Melon Penny Dot Crib Sheet from Serena and Lily on the mattress is the perfect pop of coral on this side of the room. I love it against the navy of the crib skirt!
6 and 7. Love this Larkin Swivel Glider from Ballard Designs. I'd have it upholstered in the second inspiration fabric, the Robshaw Twine Light Indigo...wouldn't it be so pretty against the light peachy-pink walls?! (Again, I tried to do a little photoshop mock up of it so that I could envision it.)
8. On the glider, this Ikat Modern Designer Lumbar Pillow from etsy seller WhitlockandCo in that coral red pops and adds a modern, sophisticated touch to this kids room.
9.  I'd keep things neutral (against all that other color) and soft on the floor with this Chenille Striped Jute Rug from Pottery Barn. Brings out the brown tones from the drapery fabric.
10. For more warmth and a natural element, the Jacqueline Recycling Bin Basket and Jacqueline Rope Handle Basket from Pottery Barn could hold toys and stuffed animals.
11. I'm adding in a bit of beauty and sophistication with this St. James 7 Drawer Dresser in Antique Coffee from Restoration Hardware. It would also function as a changing table.
12. Above the dresser, I'd hang this large scale Butterfly Wall Art in Skipper, Duskywing, and Tropical from Wisteria.
13 and 14.  On the dresser, the Alexis Ceramic Table Lamp in Porcelain Blue from Pottery Barn ties in more blue and the Won't You Come and Read with Me Bookends by Land of Nod add a graphic (and educational) punch.
15, 16 and 17. I love gallery walls right now and they are a great way to pull together lots of random, awesome art, like this (and help repeat your color scheme): Girl on Heron by Cori Dantini, Somewhere Over the Rainbow by etsy seller sugarfresh, and Midnight Owl Print by etsy seller twoems.
18. Clochette the Fairy Blabla Doll...enough said:)

  4. What a fun combo you chose Sarah - thanks again for putting this together. It's always something that I look forward to although this was the most time crunched I've ever been but it was still a blast. Mmm...elements I love in your room (too many to choose) but my favorites are that adorable polka dot crib sheet (I'm a sucker for polka dots) and the storage bins on wheels (I think we both know those would be awesome). I might actually consider getting a few of those to store Sheila's toys. Great work my friend and love seeing where everyone went with the fabrics.
