Room sets and mood boards
Mood boards are becoming increasingly popular in the interior design world and many designers, like the ones at this year’s Ideal Home Show, start their ‘look’ by creating a mood board.
What is a mood board?
A mood board is a small collection of images, colours, textures and objects that help communicate a design idea, mood or feeling.
So, if you’re looking to spruce up your home, whether it’s your bathroom, kitchen, bedroom etc. take a look at some of the mood boards created by the expert team at Ideal Home Magazine and be inspired at the possibilities of how you could improve your home…
This beautiful bedroom set is based on the most on-trend colour scheme this season: copper blush. This combination goes brilliantly with plaster pink for a perfect ombre effect.
Soften the look by teaming with natural flooring, solid wood furniture, crisp, white bed linen and wooden venetian blinds for an ideal fusion of colour and texture.
Finish the look off with copper metallics mixed gold ornaments for a perfect finish!
To bring to life this natural, sand and stone look, inspired by the earth’s natural palette, try mixing rustic floor tones with natural stone tiles.
For the walls, soft colours can be used together against one another for added interest.
Contrast these textures against a contemporary, crisp bathroom suit and style up with white window shutters and natural inspired objects, such as plants, shells, sea sponges and glass and marble accessories.
As the new ‘go-to neutral’, grey is a fantastic colour for the kitchen. Team it with dusky purple and lilacy pink tones for a contemporary twist.
Use natural textures to break up contemporary kitchen units, such as wood, slate and stainless steel.
A plain grey roller blind will blend seamlessly with this style and keep things simple yet effective.
For a modern, luxurious scheme, mix inky, dark blue walls with a lower band of chocolate brown to bring out the warm in wood furnishings. Contrast this against different fabrics, such as velvet and linen for a rich, desirable look.
L-shaped sofas, a variety of scatter cushions and textured Roman blinds help create a cosy, comforting and stylish living room.
For a stylish dining room, don’t shy away from using
dramatic colours and tones to bring the room to life! This mood board mixes solid black walls with a burnt effect flooring – just remember the importance of lighting when using darker colours!
Here the black has been teamed with green to make a bold statement and brighten the room up. Botanical green print blinds, accessories and artwork finish it off perfectly.
