Etsy Artwork Mood Board

It has been a while since I did one of these mood boards to link up. I am joining the Etsy Artwork Mood Board party at Pewter+Sage today. One had a choice of three very different works of art to use as inspiration for a mood board.

I chose the abstract painting, Live Colorfully by Him & Her Abstract Art. They are a husband and wife team - she is an interior decorator who picks the color scheme and he is the artist who creates beautiful pieces.

Live Colorfully 16 x 20 abstract art
Here is my contribution. A chic, modern and eclectic waiting area in a salon. The title of the artwork convinced me that these colors had to be prominent but in a fun way but not competitive.

I used all the bold stunning colors in the palette (why not!) and thought they would look brilliant against a deep gray wall. These colors were used in a pattern in the artwork but I chose them as solids elsewhere so as not to compete with it. The orange in the largest piece, the  mustard, fuchsia and green in smaller items (pillows and chair).

I brought in a silver console because I like to play silver and gold against each other in a space. The gold is in the mirror, end table and the Buddha statue. And last but certainly not least is the dramatic black-and-white zigzag rug which adds a large necessary pattern but does not take away from anything else in the room. The black and white (rug and lamp) along with the grey walls balance the vibrant color used in everything else.

The artwork is definitely the star of this board.
