Street Launched: Chrome and Zen Meets Pink

Street Launched: Chrome and Zen Meets Pink

What happens when street artwork inspires a dining area? I’ve been asking myself that question since I snapped this Brooklyn scene.

It instantly caught my eye. I had been walking a street at the Williamsburg area, conversing with a friend, and there was. It is as if the term had been painted as a reminder, but in pink and using a motorcycle in front of it, it seemed like a juxtaposition of styles. Yet somehow it worked. Weeks afterwards, I found myself considering the picture, wondering what a room with inspiration drawn from it’d seem like. This is my answer.

Restoration Hardware

Flatiron Dining Table – $795

A reclaimed wood dining table with metal legs is perfect for gathering guests. It takes its cue from the wood panels”Buddhas” was written on in the first photo.

Pottery Barn

Tolix CafĂ© Chair – $199

Simple silver industrial chairs highlight the motorcycle effect on this area.

Charcoal Grey Cast Stone Garden Buddha Statue – $42

This stone Buddha statue might be the most obvious addition to this space, but I love the way it integrates some of the colours and the concept in the image. Additionally, it adds that touch of Zen that a fantastic dining area needs.

Layla Grayce

Romantic Lace Wool Rug – $253

Usually, you might believe pink carpets are earmarked for women’ rooms, but this one functions equally well in a contemporary zen meets bicycle room. This yin is a superb balance to another yang bits in the dining area.

One Kings Lane

Madera – Altar Sideboard

This sideboard functions nicely as both an altar for the statue and somewhere to store additional dishes, antiques and silver. It captures the color of the sidewalk cement flawlessly.

Z Gallerie

Publications – Silver Set of 8 – $159.60

Novels alone add a touch of class to any area, but these in particular would be great as a book end to hold a selection of Asian art publications — or cookbooks.

Restoration Hardware

Harmon Pendant | Restoration Hardware – $349

The chrome is brought in again overhead at a ceiling lighting. Two would shed just the right quantity of light onto the scene.

My Sparrow

Edison Table lamp | My Sparrow – $96

All these Edison light bulbs add a touch of whimsy into the room and provide a little bit of additional lighting onto the sideboard.

The Loaded Trunk

Graphite Contemporary Stoneware – $190

Black rock dishes play in the Zen vibe perfectly — and let the meals being served shine.

Maintain Calm and Carry On – $16

Pink matches Zen inside this traditional pop culture print. I love this for a wall socket. It is a great way to find another touch of pink into the space.

Artdecotek & a.d.t Pro

This Buddha wall bit will balance the Maintain Calm poster and remind guests where the inspiration all began.
