Mood Board Collective | A Bright, Beachy Living Room

Mood Board Collective | A Bright, Beachy Living Room

The Mood Board Collective is a monthly design “challenge,” where different interiors bloggers take the same inspiration piece and use it to create a room design for any space they want. 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…

Design Progress | An Industrial Living Room

I used to live in a converted meat-packing factory in Chicago’s University Village area. The building was packed with incredible industrial features, and although I wasn’t able to complete the living room from an interior design perspective, it’s worth a look.

Wallpaper wasn’t in the budget, so I chose to…

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

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. Emmerson & Fifteenth | Office Mood Board The colour combo gave me an excuse to design a room around a grey…
