This blog happened so much later than I anticipated when I started the mood board-series. Because life happened.
So, before I show you my final design, just a few pointers.
The mood board and final design in this case only shows what I specifically wanted to change in the living room. You can use the same technique with furniture, soft furnishing, curtains, blinds or floors by using fabric swatches or floor samples on your mood board. In fact, the make-over of a room might be less overwhelming if you break it up in smaller pieces. Just remember all the smaller parts need to form one coherent idea.
You can also make small changes which makes a big difference in the room. For example I couldn’t find a frame for the one artwork on the opposite wall from the fireplace. So I painted the existing frame the same colour as the chimney breast, as seen below.
Following are some images of ‘before’ I started my make-over and then ‘after’ I finished it.
