Mood Board...mixing warm & cool colors


Hi guys, I recently met with a client who's a little overwhelmed with her dark gray sofa that a previous designer convinced her to purchase.  And since she usually decorates with warm colors...making the transition from a warm color scheme to a cool color scheme has been a challenge.  And In addition to this gray sofa her walls and ceilings were painted blue resulting in a space that feels cold and flat.

So I created a mood board and warmed up this space with fun accent colors for personality and warm neutrals for balance.  Here's the design - just click on the picture to make it larger....

For the walls I chose a cool greige called Modern Gray from Sherwin Williams (it's the gray square behind the mirror).  I also chose cool accent colors in greens and teals.  But to keep this space balanced, I introduced a few warm colors in copper and browns. The overall look is warm and inviting...yet still modern with the abstract art and mid century modern sofa and chairs.

Okay guys, need a Mood Board Design for your decorating dilemma?  As a Design Consultant and owner of...Finding Fabulous by design, LLC -  I create Custom Mood Board Designs starting at just $40.  So shoot me an e-mail.   I'll hook you up with a new design, and get you back on track with a stylish new room...for less!
