Design Board: An Industrial, Art Deco-Inspired Bedroom

Design Board: An Industrial, Art Deco-Inspired Bedroom

It’s been a while since I shared a fantasy mood board. Today’s bedroom design all started with the bed. It’s definitely a bit more glam than I tend to go for, but I kinda love the Art Deco lines on the headboard, and the Scandi-style feet with their little brass ends are just so pretty. Rather than go all-out luxe, though, I decided to pair the glamourous bed with a few industrial touches, because you know that’s my jam. And… View Post

Mood Board | Industrial Inspiration for an NYC Apartment Design

I would very happily live in the home featured in today’s design plan. It’s a mood board for an NYC apartment design, featuring lots of the industrial details I love combined with organic elements and a refined colour palette with on-trend accents of deep green. This was actually part of my application to design school, and I thought it would be fun to share here. The client Male, early 30s, single, fabulous. Works in fashion PR in New York City.

Mood Board: A Black And White Bathroom with Wood and Brass Accents

If we owned our home, rather than renting it, there are definitely a few changes I’d want to make. High up on the priority list would definitely be a black and white bathroom renovation for our master suite. Of course, I already have an idea of what I’d do! A monochrome palette would work well with our master bedroom, but adding brass and wood accents would warm the scheme up and keep it feeling cosy. This is a look that I’ve pinned variations… View Post

e-Design: A Calm Country Cottage Living Room

e-Design: A Calm Country Cottage Living Room

I’ve been working on an e-Design plan for the cottage living room of one of the loveliest families ever. They’ve got two gorgeous kids, aged 4 and 2, and they wanted to carve out an adult space free from all the plastic paraphenalia that comes with living with small people. Inspiration The brief was a calm, clean, clutter-free area space with a traditional vibe, “typical of a Country Living feature.” I pulled together a few photos that, I thought, summarised the… View Post

e-Design: A Vintage-Inspired Boys’ Bedroom

e-Design: A Vintage-Inspired Boys’ Bedroom

A couple of months ago, I did an e-Design for a shared boys’ bedroom. They’re the oldest two (age six and eight) in a family of five children. Their bedroom is big and bright, with a gorgeous fireplace and lovely high ceilings. It had been newly painted in Farrrow & Ball’s Ammonite (a soft, warm grey), and had new carpet installed, so the design was really all about finishing touches to create a calmer, more cohesive space. They listed their needs/wants… View Post

Mood Board | A Moody Girl Cave Design

Mood Board | A Moody Girl Cave Design

I’m digging dark, intimate spaces lately, and today’s design board is just that. This girl cave design incorporates a cocktail bar, and maintains a moody, cosy vibe with a limited colour palette of deep grey, navy blue, brass and natural materials like wood and leather. The bar stools, from Chairish, were the jumping off point for this whole design. The rich leather warms up all the grey and blue, then gold accents turn this otherwise masculine space into a cozy girl… View Post

Mood Board | Masculine Neutral Living Room

Look, it’s a blogger mood board! Kilim pillow: check ✔Plenty of plants: check ✔Something mid-century: check ✔White walls: check ✔ I have to admit, I’m very much into the look at the heart of The White Wall Controversy, and I’ve been dying to use those chairs in a mood board for months. So here you go. #sorrynotsorry The overall look leans masculine, with a neutral colour palette and clean lines. But layers of texture and prints in varying scales keeps… View Post
