As per my initial brief I want the room to be light, neutral and earthy with a slight eclectic edge.
A predominantly white, cream and taupe palette with lots of natural texture, rustic old timber, chippy paint, some greenery and a few metallic elements should do it!
It can seem a bit depressing to compile a whole heap of really cool images in a mood board knowing you’ll never actually have the exact pieces (like that awesome apothecary chest and brass lamp…in my dreams!) so it pays to remember it’s the overall feel of the board that counts. The amount of hard work you invest in creating your room through resourcefulness and good ol’ fashion elbow grease is where the true reward lies.
So, I am slowly getting there – darn that pesky day job – and promise to keep you guys in the know all along the way.
