It is Mood Board Monday time again! I told you guys I love this party because it lets me really get creative to either think outside the box or create a space I have been dying to create anyways. Now for this month’s challenge – we got to pick between three vignette pictures that we could either choose to incorporate in our design, use as inspiration as the room they could have been taken in, or create a pallet or design them around them. Well, I took one look at the photos and the first one just jumped out at me.

Oh I love it!!! And since I just did a post a while back on gray rooms – I decided that I was going to use this as a color/theme inspiration picture for my room!
So this is what I came up with – I could soooo live in this bedroom! I started with traditional furniture in a modern gray finish. Tarnished metal accents in the chandi and the mirror give it an antique feel. Vintage prints of Paris and the Eiffel Tower along with a clock with vintage numbers continue that theme. The rest of the accents in the room were either cream or black to play off those colors in the vintage prints.
