Contemporary living room colour moodboard




I hope you’re having a lovely, summertime weekend! Even though the weather in the UK is rather unpredictable, I’m hoping we’ll have a good few weeks of sunshine. If it’s over the school summer holiday, that would be just fine. I would prefer a heatwave, like the one we had at the beginning of this week, because I just love the sun and do not mind the heat at all. In fact, bring it on!

For today’s blog post, I want to share with you a contemporary livingroom colour moodboard, with its gorgeous, bright & sunny palette, complemented by a few neutral tones. I have a design in mind that would look perfect with this colour scheme. Alternatively, if you’re thinking of doing a spot of decorating, here’s a bit of colour inspiration for you!

It’s really exciting at work at the moment. I’m producing such lovely designs  – if I’m allowed to say so myself? They are mainly for children’s and wedding gift-wrap, and I have created a couple of birthday designs. I will be able to let you see them, once they are in production, and they’ll most likely be added to my on-line portfolio, too.

I was looking for new themes, when I came across some beautiful, bird designs. Well actually, the type of birds that caught my eye, were swans. Swans are elegant birds and I see them as a great alternative to the pink flamingos that have been so popular over the past couple of years. Flamingos are large, lean birds and have a sophisticated appeal to them. Swans on the other hand are similar, but I feel that they have a more grown-up feel to them.

In this blog post, I want to share with you some swan pattern inspiration. A couple are painted and others are digitally stylised. I’m loving all the colour and composition variations!
