I don't feel like really talking about this board today so I'll let my design do the talking for itself. Let's just say I had a fun time designing this board around the super beautiful wall mural that encompassed sea foam green, teal, and indigo into a beautiful whole.
Bringing pale pink and cream into the mix brought this design the balance it needed. I'm loving the Kravet Kate Spade New York fabrics in this design that give this color scheme the real POP it needed.
Here's a link to the Pinterest board that has all of the items I used above:
Stay tuned for the last mini board of moodboard madness coming in the next few days- I can't wait to share this last one with you because it's my favorite of the three!
This week we're doing things a bit differently around here. As you may have noticed, my blog hasn't been updated in the past few weeks. A LOT has happened since my last update, so I figured I should treat you guys to some new designs as soon as possible as a "thanks for waiting" gift. That's where Moodboard Madness comes in.
Moodboard Madness is a week long event where I'll be posting 3 mini concept boards. You should expect to see some awesome seating, ridiculously beautiful fabric, and a few quirky accessories in these boards (but honestly, when are those not in my full moodboards anyway?).
The first mini board was inspired almost entirely by the brand Flat Vernacular. I hadn't heard of this brand until a few days ago while browsing Chairloom. I was so inspired by Flat Vernacular's textiles and wallcoverings that I used 3 products of theirs in this moodboard. I know my love went a bit overboard, but honestly, I could not resist. I tied blues and pinks together through the fabric above and used white as my main neutral with black and gold as accents. The result is something that would be a bit too bold for my tastes, but I would love to find a client that would go for something this fun.
I'm in love. Bright blues and hot pinks are by no means my comfort colors, but I can totally see this mini board flourishing into a full fledged project for a rad client in the future. Any takers?
All of the items used on this mini board can be found here:
Since the next mini board will be live in a few days, I'll keep the link to its Pinterest board a secret so you can feel a bit of anticipation for the next design. Hint: Think green.
This week I decided to go with an up close snapshot view of a room rather than a large view of an entire room. Since I haven't done a bedroom moodboard in a while, I figured doing a tight view of a bed and nightstand would be a nice challenge to kick-off March.
This room is much more neutral than I normally tend to gravitate toward. Bold textures, gold tones, and industrial elements really made up for the lack of bright color in this space. One of my favorite features of the room is the three nesting end tables repurposed as a single nightstand. The jet black tops of the tables are such a stark contrast to the cowhide rug and the cool blue walls- I'm digging the combo.
Overall, this room is vintage meets modern meets industrial and the amalgamation of styles here really sings to me. Hopefully you enjoy looking at the design as much as I did making it-
What do you think? The one choice in this room that I was on the fence about was the wall color. Instead of going with a more neutral grey (which you can see pinned on my Pinterest board), I decided on the light blue to add just a bit more color to the space. In my opinion, it was the right choice. Maybe I can pull together this board with the alternative wall color to see which one you would prefer living in. (This is a hard maybe though and will take a bit of persuasion to actually do.)
Check out what I used in the board above:

Here's where you can come to get your weekly dose of design inspo. Every Monday, there will be a blog post with an original Ashley Marino Designs moodboard, trade-only tips, or ways to help you get the space that you're dreaming of. Enjoy!
