This moodboard was not easy to finish. I started this board immediately after completing the first one, thinking that it would be easy to keep myself on a roll. Little did I know at that time, about halfway through the week I would have created an Addams family-esque nightmare. It at one point kind of looked like the Hulk designed a room from the Middle Ages and it was a mess.
I took a few days off, took a step back, and went back to work. I'm so happy with the result because it turned out being something totally out of my comfort zone and something that I would have never thought of designing for myself. (I'm pretty sure if I'm working in this industry, I need to adapt my tastes for clients so this is probably good practice.) A not so subtle obsession of mine is succulents; I took the succulent arrangement above and thought- how could I bring these elements into a cohesive space? A rich room with greens, purples, and neutrals was the result.
Here it is:
I am pleased. Maybe next week I'll cruise back on into my comfort zone because this green and purple combo took me way out there. Knowing myself, probably I'll come up with an even larger challenge for next week.
