Moodboard Monday: Think Spring

Spring Inspired Bedroom

After the first real spring weekend, so far, it has got my mind filled with flowers, birds, and sunshine. Florals and animal print seem to be those pattern that you either love or hate. I think they can be used pretty much anywhere as long as you remember to use with some restraint. You don’t want your room to look like Mother nature took over your room, but florals are great way to brighten up a room for spring. What says Spring more than flowers.

Floral bedding and art give a fresh bedroom look for spring

A floral and hummingbird duvet adds a spring-like feel to the room, which is much needed after the grey and cold winter. A few bright floral abstracts and the rooms has a fresh new look. If florals are too much, add a light blue or green duvet with  a few floral shams or pillows instead. Still have a floral, but in a more subtle way.

Monday Moodboard: Desert Oasis

A warm decorating style

Looking through my magazines, catalogs, and online retailers a desert vibe is definitely going on. Anything from a Moroccan to Southwestern  feel. The Moroccan/global type style has been popping up in things for quite a while, but the southwestern look was last seen in the nineties for those that do not live in the American Southwest.

Forget the native prints on absolutely everything in the room, the art featuring Native Americans, turquoise, and fringe. The look now has taken the sunset colors and patterns used sparingly to give this style a much needed update.

A single color palette can work for both style, Moroccan and Southwestern. Keep the furniture in a creamy neutral color and liven it up with bold dashes of dusty terracotta and turquoise. The following two styleboards I created uses the exact same furniture, lamps, rug, and color story.  Just changing out art and accessories can give the room a whole new look. No need to redo your whole room or color palette.

A few tribal print pillows and succulent art and plants give this living room a subtle southwestern style. You can add a bit more southwest style with cactus prints on the pillows and art and few live cacti on the tabletops or floor.

To add a Moroccan style to the room switch out the tribal print pillows, art, and table decor. Add some fret work lanterns, mosaic wall decor, a few pillows with fret work and camels, and a palm in place of the succulent arrangement.

Just a few touches of the any given style is all you need. Both rooms could add a few more touches without being in danger of going overboard, but remember when working with themed styles less is more. Too much of either style will make it feel like a staged set or store window not an actual living space.

Monday Moodboard: Outdoor Rooms

Outdoor Living Spaces

According to the calendar it is Spring, yet here in the Midwest it looks like Winter. Saturday Mother Nature decided to gift us a few inches of snow, so instead of Spring tulips we have a Winter wonderland in white. I’m sure it won’t last with the temperatures warming up. Getting my outdoor spaces ready for the warmer weather is on my mind, despite what it looks like outside.

You can have an outdoor living space even with just a small balcony. A small bistro set, some decor, and of course some live plants create a place to relax and rewind during the spring and summer months.

I am including a new design package to my list of services on April 1st. This will be an outdoor room, patio, or other seasonal use space. It will include the Styleboard, renderings, and floor plan like my other packages, but will focus on the outdoor spaces.

Monday Moodboard: Inherited Colors

Using Existing Colors

Sometimes when decorating our home, old or new, we are stuck using a sofa, paint, tile, or something in a color that we would haven’t chosen. An inherited sofa that is still in great shape and very comfortable or bathroom tiles not in the perfect color. Can’t afford to reupholstered or retile so we go into this mindset of trying to disguise the color, which makes it stand out even more. Instead of working against the color in question try using it in the room’s color scheme.

Using the color in the overall color scheme will incorporate the sofa (or whatever) into the room and make it all seem harmonious and planned. This will make the offending color much easier to live with until you can afford to change it.

I worked with a client who had some nice leather furniture, but they could not figure out how to work the leather color into the new homes color scheme. There were some bold purple colors in the dining room along with a camel tan that ran throughout the level and they wanted to add some green accents. Quite a range of colors to harmonize and blend together into something that wouldn’t make your eyes burn when looked upon.

Monday Moodboard inherited colors

Since the wall and leather furniture were a rich camel tan color that would be the base. Add a bold grape purple as the main accent to tie in with the purple walls throw a little dash of grass green with some pillows and we have a vibrant colorful room. This a triad color scheme, three colors on the color wheel that are spaced equidistant apart around the wheel. In this case a orange-yellow (camel), green-blue, and red-violet.

Jen PL's Living Room Final

The color scheme is bold but it works because the colors aren’t trying to compete against each other. Have the camel of the walls and furniture ground the colors while adding bright and bold accents give this room an inviting and comfy feel. No eye strain with the final color palette.

Monday Moodboard

Valentine’s Day Inspired Bedroom

A bedroom inspired by the clients subway art and color scheme of pink, red, and white. The client’s subway art has a list of romantic phrases and words (bottom left on the concept). So added art that had hearts and love as the subject, white bedding, and a few accents in red and pink. The white and silver keep it from feeling like you stepped into a Valentine’s day card.

Romantic modern bedroom concept When using themes in adult spaces, especially ones that can become too whimsical and precious, have just a few accessories with the theme’s subject. If the colors of the theme are bold, having a neutral palette with the bolder colors as accents will keep the room welcoming and inviting without overwhelming. The theme is clearly hearts and love, but tastefully done.
