Mood Board Friday?

So I am thinking about making Friday posts here on The Boston Teacup specifically dedicated to mood boards I've created. I'm not sure about this though, so don't hold me to it! Today I have a mood board I created using both high (very high) and low end products. This particular mood board is something I wouldn't typically think about putting into my own home since I tend to go for more classic looks but it is a look I am very attracted to. Tell me what you think!

 
I started this board by stumbling across the rug first and decided it would be really fun to design a whole room around it. I think a rug is a great place to start when decorating a space, as strange as that may seem to some of you, it gives you a great foundation to build up your color selections. However, not everything you put in the space has to match the rug perfectly. I choose electric blue side tables because it makes things interesting but it also coordinates with everything else without being 'matchy-matchy'.

Here are the sources for all the items above except for the drapes. Warning: not all the items on this list are budget friendly, I just think it's fun to pretend sometimes! However, I do think I could create a very similar look in a more budget friendly manner.

Rug: $1,059 (current 50% off promotion Rugs USA)
Pillow 1: $50 (Furbish)
Pillow 2: $72 (Furbish)
Sofa: $599 (Ikea)
Side Tables: 2@ $99.92 (CB2)
Butterfly Chairs: 2@ $399.00 (CB2)
Sunburst Mirror: $3,100 (1stDibs)
Table Lamps: $3,250 (1stDibs)
Coffee Table: $4,200 (1stDibs)
Gold Pouf: $119.95 (Nate Burkus for HSN)

TOTAL: $13,447.79

Woo! So, like I said, this is definitely not budget friendly but I think it's pretty to look at! I may be back later with a more budget friendly version of this, so stay tuned!

Would you ever put something like this in your own home? If not, what style do you tend to stick to?
