Moodboard inspiration

Mood boarding Mondays

We love to get our week off to the right start with our of inspiring mood boards. Want to see this month’s designs? 

Here at Inside Stylists we want to share all the fabulous new interiors things we find – whether it’s the colour of the year for a paint brand or an up-and-coming artist who’s creating their own wallpaper collection. Each month we’ll be shouting out about what’s got us excited and featuring them here (and on Instagram) so that you can find out all about them too!

Sophisticated Study

Working from home doesn’t seem so bad with a luxurious home study like this one!

If you’re looking for soft, earthy tones in a room then this is the scheme for you. The yellow and blue hues may be a darker shade of mustard and navy but this room still packs a visual punch. The marble and leaf patterns give a nod to the natural world and with fabulous worker bees for company, we suggest that this design would make a fantastic home office.

You can find these wallpapers, fabrics, and flooring here:

Mustard: Mustard Velvet, Neptune 

Leaf print: Multi Stem Moss, Orla Kiely at Blinds 2 Go

Soft and subtle neutrals

Keep it calm and cosy with tints, tones and shades of grey.

Neutral moodboard

When you’re looking for that moment and of calm and clarity, soft and subtle neutrals are the way forward. The pared back colour palette allows the fabric textures to take centre stage without competition, resulting in a relaxed and versatile scheme. Balance the greys with accessories from the natural world and you’re done. Gorgeous.

Bold and playful brights

We’re just a little bit in love with this explosion of colour and pattern. What do you think? Are you brave enough? 

Bold yellow and blue moodboard

The hero piece of this mood board has got to be the Dragon wallpaper by Linwood. We’re slightly obsessed! The curved lines and striking colours make this a fun focal point for any scheme. It’s joined by darker blues, yellows and greens which enhance the print rather than fighting against it. But don’t forget to add in a clashing fabric like this yellow triangle one from Flock. You wouldn’t want to shy away from making a statement now would you?

Styling Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2021

Make a strong yet subtle impact with ultimate grey and illuminating yellow.

When Pantone stated that their colour of the year for 2021 was actually two hues that showcase how different elements can come together to support one another, (in this case Ultimate Grey and Illuminating), we knew we had to try our hand at styling the look. After all, supporting one another is what Inside Stylists is all about, right? This scheme celebrates several different tones of grey, with pops of yellow and gold. Perfect for a relaxing guest bedroom or stylish lounge we say.
