Monthly Moodboard Inspiration: Terrene Homes

February 20, 2018

As February comes to a close, springtime is just around the corner! For us, as well as for bloggers and designers, spring means a time for a change; diving into remodeling and redecorating projects.

To help you plan your next home makeover, we’ve curated a moodboard that showcases an updated classic style.

This stately dining room is perfectly balanced. Deep paint colors and natural light, traditional architectural details and a sleek fireplace.

Full of bold colors and decor, this dining room is grounded in classic symmetry for an understated elegance. Take a cue from Terrene Homes’ entry into our Every Room Tells A Story — 2017 Builder & Designer Challenge to revamp your home this spring.

Strip away the gorgeous decor, and the use of interior finishings alone display an even more stunning canvas.

The chair rail and panel mould painted in a bold blue enhance the clean and white window treatment, designed with architraves and casing courtesy of our French Curves Collection. The combination creates an inspiring old-world-meets-new architectural style that we’re in love with. In fact, so in love with that, we’ve devised this moodboard to help break down the vision:

A bold take on classic design, this moodboard pairs modern colors with traditional interior finishings.

Now, let’s turn our attention to the decor, a.k.a. the changes you can make in a day (given that your car is big enough to carry the chunky dining table and chairs).

First, you’ll want to make a trip to your favorite antique store for a distressed, black farmhouse table and a tall stately sideboard. No antique store? Not to worry, we did some online shopping for unique pieces to get the look: dining table, sideboard. With these statement pieces squared away, everything else starts to fall into place.

Next, bring it into the 21st Century with leather dining chairs, a neutral abstract rug, and a great print above the fireplace. Throw in other items that reflect your own style, and you’ve got a modern yet timeless dining room fit for the glamorous company you keep.

If a weekend project isn’t in the cards for you at the moment, follow this curated Pinterest board to save these ideas for when you need them. Don’t forget to also explore our other moodboards for greater inspiration down below.
