Translated: Florals into Organic Dining Room

Do you ever find yourself attracted to the same clothes and patterns all the time? I find myself reaching for striped sweaters every time I see one, and I'm still not sick of chevron decor. I want to challenge myself into drawing inspiration from the images I find beautiful, and seeing where it leads me. So, with that in mind, I wanted to start a new recurring feature I'm calling "Translated." Sometimes it might be a picture of art translated into a room, or an outfit or vice versa. 

Today, I'm drawing inspiration from Ariel Dearie Flowers, a lovely Brooklyn-based floral designer whose organic white-and-green arrangement caught my eye. I took inspiration from this image and translated it into an earthy and organic dining room:
