I am going to confess to you that I'm not very good at "mood boards". On the other hand when you want to show a little vision to a client it is the only way.
This one is for a small guest bedroom. She already purchased the Ikea iron bed and has a vintage armoire that is staying. This is an older home with a slight victorian feel to it. I say that because there is a fireplace in the room with blue tiles on it.
Sometimes it is nice to already know what color you are working with :).
So feast your eyes on this very elementary Olioboard.....
Since the ceilings are 120" I will have to add fabric to the bottom of ready made curtains. There is a window on both sides of the bed. The one problem is that the closet door opens into the right side of the bed which leaves very little room for an end table.
I could have used 2 very small side tables and skinny tall lamps but with 10 ft ceilings I felt there was already too much vertical in the room. I needed round and fat. Like my butt.
After I added the color, I decided that some black and white pictures would look good split up and hung on both sides of the armoire.
We will see how this plays out and hopefully I can show you the before and afters.
In other news I finally completed watching all 3 seasons of Downton Abby. Last week. It was definitely a marathon.
I got tired of faking my way through conversations with people saying things like "OF COURSE I'M WATCHING....IT'S SO GOOD RIGHT?" Then changing the subject with "OH LOOK....THERE'S A PUPPY!"
Today I suggested to my husband [while we were out doing errands] that it would be fun to use an english accent when we spoke. He gave me a look that I interpreted as "sometimes my wife is weird" and went about his business. I thought it would be easier than trying to use a spanish accent...... he wanted nothing to do with any of it.
It is supposed to be a 10 on the "wizometer" tomorrow.
In Atlanta that is weather man talk for a "stinking fine day".
Looking forward to it.
Chili for dinner.
