Moody Monday

Happy Monday everyone!

I cannot believe it’s the end of September already, but I’m in a very good mood about it anyway.

In a few days time it’s my birthday and I’ll be heading down to Deep Creek for an annual family camping trip over the long weekend in South Australia.  I can’t wait 🙂

I’ve also just handed in my final assignment of my interior design course with The Interior Design Institute. Woohoo!

So to celebrate all these wonderful things I bring you some mood boards.

This was part of one of my assignments where I had to speak to someone I know about some interior design work they would like done and treat them as client.

This assignment was actually mostly about paperwork and I only had to write up a scheme for the room but for my own purposes I created some mood boards/layouts.

Teenage Retreat Mood Board (1)

This room is a teenage retreat in a family home. Somewhere for the teens to hang out, watch TV, play video games, music (including drums) and the sofa would be a sofa bed for easy sleepovers.

The trunk & footstool would double as seating and storage and along with the bookshelf and storage shelf, they all help to keep bits and pieces stored away neatly.

The mural wall is to be made of a sound absorbent material to help keep the noise from traveling throughout the rest of the house.

I wanted to create something contemporary with touches of industrial and rustic which is achieved with geometric patterns, bold colours and then industrial lighting and a few rustic wooden items. We discussed the colours grey, navy blue and mustard and I added some pops of pink/purple for contrast, fun and a more feminine touch.

The soft greys and dark carpet keep a relaxed feel while the bold shapes and pops of colour create a fun environment.

If I was still a teenager, I would love a room like this!

What a funky space, very retro rustic. My favourite things here are the cage lights but I do love the mustard tufted sofa – such a feature piece.
