I Love...Moodboards

I've always loved putting moodboards together. I used to cut pictures out of magazines as a child to come up with a scheme for a new bedroom or fantasy holiday. The moodboards continued through my Art College days where we had to learn all about colour theory and into my textile degree where we had to pick complementary colours for our woven fabrics. 

I then spent a few years working in a textile studio which I thoroughly enjoyed as part of my job was putting moodboards together and then mixing the exact shades of paint to match the chosen colours. 

I continued to make my own moodboards for room schemes and most recently for some wedding inspiration for when our big day eventually comes around!

I was overjoyed with the invention of moodboards for me to play with! So easy to navigate and pin beautiful images..I have lost hours and hours on the site.

Another fabulous site I have discovered through Pinterest is Design Seeds. The site has the most beautiful colour palettes and I find it really inspiring. It takes me back to my Art College projects and paint mixing days of picking a painting or colourful image and matching up the colours.

There are so many themes and colourways - a fabulous source for any new decorating scheme or project. I've already added some to my Pinterest boards for most rooms in my house. Just need someone to pop round and decorate now...

    1. I wish that could be my job!! I'd never get bored : )

  2. Design Seeds looks fab! I now NEED a room in my house to be decorated in berry blues, damn you.

    1. Hee hee! You wait 'til you see all the gorgeous colour palettes on Design Seeds...I can't decide on my colour schemes now after seeing them. Too many beautiful combinations!
