from a sweatshirt to a dining room?!?

Have you ever loved a piece of clothing so much that you want to wear it every single day? We've shown you past rooms inspired by dresses, fabric, and a skirt. But if you can believe it, this one was inspired by a SWEATSHIRT!

We're obsessed with this Castle "Woman" sweatshirt that we carry in the Oh Joy! Shop, AND we used it as inspiration to create a sleek, modern, and inviting dining room. Take a look...

1. Let one element influence a wall color. The peachy-salmon color from the "W" of sweater inspired the playful, yet feminine, wall color! Then the navy came in for smaller doses with navy velvet cushion chairs that help to ground the room and contrast with the bright walls. Since we used lots of fun pops of colors in this space, so we opted to keep the table neutral and white.

2. Reflect a mix of colors in the artwork. The artwork all compliment each other and is inspired by all the fun colors from the sweatshirt: tangerine, peach, coral, and navy blue. We also mixed in some typographic prints as a nod to the piece's statement typography.

3. Plants! To create texture and bring life to the space, we added lots of plants. Plants are a great way to make any space feel extra cozy and they help to ground a colorful space with some natural texture and color.
