Mood Boards

The days seem to be getting away from me lately. I think it might have something to do with my new sewing machine. Over the weekend I made this cushion cover using our new pattern – Wobbly drop (I really need to come up with a better name). The ink we used is the most stunning grey and almost looks silver in certain light.

I am so in love with this new cushion that I had to decorate a whole room around it using furniture from Coco Republic and a painting from A Little Painter.

I think we are all guilty of holding on to some stuff we really should throw out.

My mission this year is rid myself of crap I don’t use or stuff that is lying in boxes which never sees the light of day.

When looking for spare plastic folders I found my old mood boards from the interior design course I did a few years back. Now I know some people might want to hold onto old school work for their portfolio but do you need to hold onto all of it?

No! And people we live in a digital world so why not scan it?

Here is one I made earlier – (much much earlier)

I am still digging that green and blue combo.

Marie is an interior stylist from the UK and is currently setting up home in my old town, Sydney. Since she is only staying for a year she is very wisely keeping costs to a minimum. I should clarify that the majority of rental properties in Australia come unfurnished. You even have to provide your own fridge and washing machine! This never bothered me when I lived there but it is a problem if you are only stopping for a year or two.

Anyway Marie’s bedroom is simply gorgeous and its no wonder she has found work as a stylist already.

Here is her moodboard for the bedroom makeover -

and the budget bedroom!

Simply stunning! I love the cushions she made from silk scarves and the colours she chose for the bed and the otherwise drab Ikea wardrobe.

Another mood board. This time for the second bedroom/office. Both bedrooms in the apartment have blue carpet – the landlord’s budget didn’t stretch far enough to re-carpet. That said I rather like the colour scheme for this room. We purchased the galant desk and malm chest of drawers on the weekend (Ikea) and I had the purple curtains already. The sofa-bed is from Proform Shop. The lamp, pendant light and filing cabinet on wheels is Ikea.
