Moodboard Monday is a fornightly collaboration between myself and the wonderful Jen over at Love Chic Living. To jazz things up a bit, I feature Jen’s boards over here at Lish Concepts and she features mine over at Love Chic Living. This week’s theme is the glorious – LONDON!

‘This week, as with most weeks to be honest, I’ve been super excited to put the Moodboard together and have loved sourcing some fabulous London themed products for you. This summer has just been amazing with the Olympics and Paralympics and it helps me fall in love with London all over again. I lived there many years ago, and probably didn’t make the most of it then, but did enjoy it to its max when I visited a lot a few years later! I love its vibrancy and the fact it’s so hip and cool and this inspired me to find some funky designs for the home. Mostly I’ve scoured the wonderful site ‘Not on the High Street’ to find some amazing designs and makes that will give you the essence of London but won’t necessarily mean you have Union Jacks all over the place. Putting the Moodboard together this time, I’ve used Picmonkey, a great free photo collage site which is incredibly easy to use and very good fun. Do go and have a play if you’ve not used it before, you’ll love it! The centrepiece wallpaper is called Londinium by Graham and Brown and was very popular when I featured it on my blog a few months ago. You can find links to all the other products below in case you want to go and hunt them out for your own home. And so, I hope you’ve been inspired to make your own Moodboard and link up with us below in the comments section. We’d love to see what you’ve put together!
Please hop over to Love Chic Living to take a look at my moodboard. This week I created a interior design moodboard with a little twist (there is a spot the landmark game for you to play!)
We’d love to see what you come up with and you still have a 2 weeks to think up a London board and share it with us on the comments before we move on to our next theme… The colour purple!
Moodboard Monday is a fortnightly collaboration between myself and the fabulous interior design blogger Jen over at Love Chic Living where we create a moodboard inspired by a certain theme. I will be featuring Jen’s moodboards on Lish Concepts and she will be featuring mine over at Love Chic Living! But that’s not all…. Moodboard Monday is also open to you! So if you are feeling inspired by this weeks offerings why not check out the theme for next week and play along.
You can create your Moodboard any way you like, with an actual magazine collage scanned in or photographed or using the computer ie. photoshop, picmonkey, olioboard or Polyvore. You may want to focus on interiors one week and fashion the next, you may want to use your own photography – anything goes, feel free! If you would like some ideas about how to create your moodboards check out my tutorial on How to create the perfect moodboard. The only rule is you need to use the week’s theme as a guideline (but as you see they can often be interpreted very differently!) and pop back the following Monday, grab the button from over in the sidebar and link up your creation via the comments!
