Mood Board | Design Plans for a Long Living/Dining Room

I’ve just been granted clearance to buy a fancy Chesterfield, and I want to nail down the design plans for my dining/living room quick in case the hubs changes his mind. It’s a multifunctional space, with a study area thrown in for good measure, and, as usual, I’m blending an eclectic mix of design styles. The living/dining room is long and narrow, which makes for a bit of a design challenge, especially with so much to fit in. We need…

This month, the starting point was a pretty print of a seagull painting, which I used to create a beachy living room design. I love the happy colour palette in the painting, and I decided to roll with it. I pulled bright pink, emerald green and yellows from the…

I love the mix of vintage and modern pieces, and I’ve put together a mood board to recreate the look. The Inspiration Get the Look Pauca writes a fab travel/lifestyle blog, and her stunning entryway was sourced as eclectically as you’d expect. But it’s not difficult to recreate a similar look using pieces from online and high street…

There’s storage for kids’ toys and a plush velvet sectional for parents to lounge on. Pink can…

Mood Board Collective | Aqua, Salmon & Grey

This month’s mood board collective inspiration image is a bright, graphic infinity scarf chosen by Sarah. Using the same salmon, aqua and grey reference image as a starting point, four interiors bloggers have created their own room designs. There are no other parameters, and it’s always fun to see the different directions we all take in our mood boards.
