In between preparing for my final exhibition at college, I’ve been daydreaming about redecorating the house. I’ve been gazing longingly at these images for weeks imagining myself ensconced in the sanctuary I will create once I’m not a slave to college deadlines….procrastination is a wonderful skill when it comes to maintaining sanity under pressure.
With the exhibition over, I’ve begun building a mood board for the project. The sitting room is my first challenge. I’m in love with these images but an all-white scheme doesn’t appeal…….well, it would if I didn’t have a dog, cat, & kids to consider. So I’m thinking white or pale grey walls and adding colour with textiles, art & objects.
I love the idea of switching accent colours with the seasons: A vivid Matthew Williamson inspired palette for the spring & summer of turquoise, orange, magenta & lime to bring a little of the mediterranean into our lives. Autumn & winter brings the need for warmth & comfort so I’ll be looking to Swedish & Danish interiors for guidance.
