Pink bedroom moodboard to inspire rooms

We’ve seen an explosion of pink all over Instagram and social media recently and it doesn’t seem as if it’s going away any time soon. Which is good, because we love it! Who would have thought we’d be thinking about painting our bedrooms pink again, let alone our living rooms? Get this look by teaming the Wisteria wallpaper with pink fabrics and paint for a touch of elegance and sophistication. Beautiful.

THERE’S SOME SERIOUS ATTITUDE IN THIS SCHEME. AND WE’RE LOVING IT!

Inspiring moodboard with cat wallpaper in an art deco design

If you’re looking for a room with the sophistication of the Art Deco era but with a modern twist, this is it. The wallpaper from Divine Savages needs no explanation. The title says it all – ‘Cat-titude’. Add in some neutral tones and pared back fabrics in similar shades and you’re there. Oh, and don’t forget the drinks cart for the cocktails.

Looking for a space to breathe? Time out from the pressures of lockdown/post lockdown life? Welcome to the most centred and calm scheme ever. If 2020/21 has taught us anything, it’s of our need to be surrounded by nature. There’s a comfort in the natural rhythms of the world and the fact that spring follows winter. Bring that serenity into your home with this gorgeous wallpaper from Albany and gentle soft pinks, plums and greys from Stitched. And relax.

Wild and Whimsical

IT’S TIME TO MAKE A STATEMENT AND CELEBRATE THE WILDER SIDE OF LIFE!

 Bold Brights MoodBoard for perfect room decorating with elephants

Ok, so I have to admit that I’m a bit obsessed with this Emma J Shipley wallpaper for Clarke and Clarke. I’m trying to think of all the places it could go in my home. We already have a lot of gold accents, navy and green plants in our house. I’m hoping that by paring this fabulous wallpaper with those elements, I can subliminally influence my husband to purchase the wallpaper by waving this mood board under his nose. Think it will work? Wish me luck!
