plum tree inspired design board

February 10, 2011

This morning as I was sitting on my porch I noticed that one of my plum trees was starting to blossom and I thought how pretty the colors were. Pale pink, plum red, grey bark. That got me to thinking and well… I haven’t posted in a while so here you go!

Here is a photo of the inspiring tree.

Our walls would be papered in this lovely Silk hand-painted scenic wallpaper from Griffin and Wong

A modern, yet plump and cozy sofa from The Collection.

Flanking the sofa these side tables with faux bois legs from Kay O’Toole

And sitting atop the tables I would put these gorgeous Foo Dog lamps from Belvedere

In front of the sofa I would use this large bench rather than a coffee table.

And I would refinish the legs dark and reupholster it in this metallic fabric from F. Schumacher

Shimmer Linen

Add these yummy chairs from Baker
