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:
- Green vase, $32 at World Market.
- Paint in "Shale," by Serena & Lily.
- Vienna side chair, $119 at Crate and Barrel.
- Hammered pendant, $149 at Shades of Light.
- Gold cutlery (this kind is plastic, but ideally you'd have the real deal!)
- Kim Sebert crochet-edge napkin, $6 at Bloomingdales.
- Country trestle dining table, $849 (on sale) from Home Decorators.
- Pewter platter, $98 at Tabula Tua.
- Reed zinc chair, $149 at CB2.
- Allegra Hicks rug, (unfortunately on clearance) from West Elm.
