Mood Board Monday... Come Play!

PK at Room Remix has asked me to choose the inspiration pieces for her next Mood Board Monday McLinky party. Obsessed with chairs as I am, I couldn't help but choose these two beauties from Anthropologie. Click on the pics to go to their source.

Bertram


Antwerp

Both chairs have leggy profiles and are upholstered in fabrics with dark backgrounds. One, however, has clean, contemporary lines and is dressed in mixed-up menswear stripes while the other boasts brightly-colored paisley and suzani embroidery on a classic, curvy French bergere frame. Even the backs of the chairs have their own unique designs.


I love tham both and have no idea which one I'll end up using. I hope you like them too and I can't wait to see all the creative ways they're put to use. By the way, if you use Polyvore to create your mood boards, Bertram and Antwerp are already there, listed by name.

This Mood Board Monday is scheduled for November 9th. Mark your calendar and get ready to show your work. Thanks to PK for asking me to host the party here too.

As a reminder, here are the "rules"... otherwise known as "guidelines":

1) This is NOT a mood board competition for designers (although designers are certainly welcome to participate). 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 room of your choice using at least one of the two inspiration items shown here.

3) On MBM party day, you will need to include sources in your post and give a brief description of the room and how you used the inspiation item(s).

Now, go get "designery" and we'll see you back here on the 9th!

Great choices! Of course, I can't say which one I like the best because then you'll know which one I'm using. :-) Thanks for doing this Tracy! It's going to be fun.

Wow, stunning chairs, it would be so cool to own these... and also be able to afford to change them if I got tired of them!
I'm sorry that I'll be out of town for next MBM but will look forward to viewing all the different boards when I get back.

Super fun! I love these two choices Tracy and can't wait to get started....

For some reason both seem like perfect choices for a cozy study.

I'm so happy I came to visit your blog today and saw the link to this post. I want to play too!! :-)

So to make sure I get this right -- on Monday, November 9th, I write a post for my blog with a design board that includes one of these two chairs and link it to your Mood Board Monday blog party, yes??

Hey, it's my first time, I want to do it right :-)
