Inspirational Palette: Dessert Shots!

27 Jun

I haven’t pulled together an inspirational palette in a while now, so I felt it was time to make one.  Perhaps I hadn’t been feeling very inspired, but then I saw this image of chocolate dessert shots on a wedding website:

Yum! (image via

I love it because it’s both masculine and feminine, as well as comfortable and formal. It’s a blend of neutrals with a background pop of bright green, and it’s cozy and clean at the same time. Naturally, I’d love to make this dessert a room. Here’s my take — hope you enjoy it!

Top row: White pillow with checked piping, source unknown; Pair of Green Glass Lamps from Pieces, $2,700 (image via Pieces); Creamsicles Print from Crate and Barrel, $399 (image via Crate and Barrel) Second row: Refrax Pendant by Schonbeck ($20-$500); Brown and White Cowhide by Tracy Porter, $780 (image via DecorPad); Modern West German Pottery from Stripe Vintage Modern, price on request (image via 1stDibs) Third Row: Stanley Young American Ma Mariele Mirror, $480 (image via Layla Grayce); Moroccan Pouf in Tan, $350 (image via Layla Grayce); White Lacquer Tray from West Elm (image via West Elm) Bottom Row: Saarinen Table, from $1,400 (image via Design Within Reach); Striped Bolster Pillow from Ballard Designs, $48 (image via Ballard Designs); Etta Chair from Oly Studio, price on request (image via Oly Studio)

For those of you who interpret furniture lines and textile prints as literally as I do, you’ll love how the woodwork on the Etta Chair echoes the darker chocolate in the glasses, and you’ll appreciate how the Refrax by Schonbeck pendant tops off the room in the same way that the blackberry tops off the confection. I really like the feel of this space, and I’d eat a dessert shot it in any day!
