Today I wanted to share a mood board that I created for a former coworker and forever friend. She is throwing a surprise 40th birthday party for a friend of hers, a gentleman with a love for the Dead and a fun, spirited personality. I’m often contacted by clients who have the time and ability to execute a design, but are stuck on just what direction to go in and how to start. That’s where I come in with a basic design plan. Here is Christina’s.
The room is more or less a blank slate, but with floor-to-ceiling windows clad in glamorous gold drapes I thought it better to work with the canvas provided and stick with a rich color scheme. As you can see, hippy can be sexy, with a palate of red, black, and gold like the vintage tapestry in the board. I also suggested that she try to borrow or thrift an oriental rug to place in one corner of the room, surrounded by big floor pillows in coordinating colors, to create a sultry and cozy lounge area. I just love this design and wish I was in Wilmington so I could crash!!! Love you, Christina. Can’t wait to see this vision brought to life!
