This modern ikat design pillow (7)  from Designed Goods in Los Angeles landed on my desk last week and sparked the idea for a green and black mood board.  With the Echo pillow as my starting point, I was inspired to go bold and graphic and create a look with an industrial edge and a little rock chick at the same time! Here are our top picks to create this look:  

SURFACE & PAINT COLOURS:   Fired Earth just added Mad King George to its paint collection, a discovery from its archived pigments and the perfect emerald green hue.  Use this to create a bold accent piece by painting a chair or dresser turning the ordinary into something extraordinary.   My all time favourite at the dark grey/black end of the paint colour spectrum is Railings by Farrow & Ball, a very dark grey, but softer than black and it just always seems to work everytime I use it (and I have tested every dark grey/black possible!).

PRODUCTS:  I’ve always been a fan of the Cameroon Juju hat (4) as a wall decoration, and this one is a new arrival at Rockett St George  //   The American weathered oak dining tableicon with steel legs (9) from Heals teamed with this cute Black metal stoolicon (6) and New York black and copper wall light icon(8) by House Doctor DK adds an industrial edge  //  The Lambert chair (3) is a simple design and becomes a little special when painted in a green hue (can be ordered in any pantone colour) //  I love these industrial style Danish spun pendants (1) – they would look great over a dining table, kitchen island or hung low over a big desk  //  The Echo Pillow (7), a limited edition, is dual-sided with black & white ikat fabric on the reverse and embroidered chervons – a definite favourite of mine and I will be using this when styling a room over the next few months – watch out for the pics! //   For the graphic element, get this bold chevron cotton rug (10) (an online exclusive at Urban Outfitters) and the Rock Flag print icon(2) a best seller at Bodie and Fou //  I first saw these amazing Agnes ceramic vasesicon (5) with a brush stroke design when the new Bodie and Fou catalogue dropped through my door, and these are also on my personal wish list!

    I really like this mood board.I love that shade of green and black is such an amazing colour for creating dramatic, modern looks. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I’ve never really thought about green and black as a colour combo before, feels a bit Halloweenish. But I really like some of these products!
