I've been introduced to new idea in Design, it's called "Mood Boards". This is a way for you to play with different textures and colors to help do just about anything. It's helpful for weddings, floral bouquets, party planning and especially interiors. To study the masters I recommend this month's Real Simple August Issue, they did a fantastic mood inspired write up on painting your home, and the cover is dazzling.
Today I took some pictures around my apartment and realized that hidden underneath all the teal and yellow in my living room...is lots of purple, navy, and green. Which is, of course...peacock colors! So along with a few snapshots from this morning I included my first attempt at a mood board. Honestly? I'm not that happy with it...but it will take lots of practice to really get the hang of it, so bear with me, so to speak.
So here it is...Jarfly's Peacock Inspirations:
