Before & After Film Office

This ones goes back a couple of years now, but in keeping with Before & Afters (see my last post Before & After Inspiration) here’s one I helped out with.

My husband is a film maker and he and his partner rent a small office in the city.

It certainly isn’t the creative warehouse space you might hope an up and coming film company would be in, like this one – ooh wouldn’t that be awesome!

But anyway… the guys and I had some cool creative ideas to liven the place up. We got to work and painted and they found some artwork and new furniture that fitted their style better.

Moody Monday

Welcome to my first Moody (Mood Board) Monday!

Monday’s aren’t generally a favourite day of the week but what a way to brighten the mood with a lovely mood board!

This first one I put together for an assignment and I did a bit of a mock up/mood board.  After changing floor plans, picking paint colour schemes, fabrics & finishes this is one of 4 mood boards we were asked to present.

The fictional client wanted a more open and family orientated living space, so as well as a light open feel I wanted to create a comfortable mood in the house which is achieved with soft neutrals, calming teal coloured feature wall, traditional style cabinets and  warm natural floors.

The above features:

Loving Chevrons right now!

Chevron Cushions, Chevron Rugs, Chevron Walls….

Love this wall by Jared Sherman Epps Design so bold!

My personal preference however, goes to the softer tones grey chevron walls like this one from All Things Lovely

For something a little less in your face, here’s a few Chevron cushions I found on Etsy.

Love this one that is on hessian fabric.. adds a rustic element to that mod chevron look. Nice blend of modern vintage 🙂 Source unknown.

It’s amazing what a chevron rug can do to a room. It  brings a bold statement and a sense of activity and can really ground a space.

I love the chevron rug below with the soft neutral colours and rustic table, a great blend of a modern style with rustic & provincial charm.
