Moodboard Monday is a collaboration between myself and Jen over at Love Chic Living. I feature Jen’s boards over here at Lish Concepts and she features mine over at Love Chic Living. I’ve recently started a new job so I thought it might be fun to make the theme of Moodboard Monday – A day at the office! Luckily Jen agreed :)
Take it away Jen!
Well this week I’ve done something a little different and gone outside my usual comfort zone of home interiors to try incorporating some fashion into my Moodboard.
This week’s theme, A Day at the Office, really had me thinking about my previous career, you know that one before children came along! Well I used to work in IT which was very male dominated and not at all glamorous and girly so I really wanted to focus on everything that my experience wasn’t. My design ideas of glamorous, chic, statement, and modern really helped to keep the brief clear in my mind as I went in search of pieces for the board. Once I’d found the gorgeous day dress I knew where I was going and started adding the other fashion items. I love satchels and high heels, both items I don’t really get to use much working from home and there had to be a notebook too to keep all those lists I’m always making. As for the decor pieces, I’m so in love with Pantone colours right now that the mug had to feature, and I couldn’t leave an office theme without including the classic Eames chair, in orange of course.
Polyvore really is great fun to use. Pick from the items already on the site, or hunt the internet for your design ideals and clip them in using the toolbar button. I used a template for this moodboard but you can use a blank canvas and really build your own unique board. Why not give it a go and join us with your own take on A Day at the Office!
I don’t know about you but I am loving Jen’s board this week. Utterly gorgeous, so colourful and very me! In fact Jen, this moodboard could be made for me :) I would 100% wear the dress from Warehouse as well as the satchel, the heels and the mug! Oh and I could quite imagine the Eames chair looking rather lovely in my office (ha I wish!)
Please hop over to Love Chic Living to take a look at my moodboard. This week I actually went for a interior design moodboard along the Green / Eco theme and created a hip take on the ‘green’ office, hopefully inspiring you to think green too! :)
This weeks new theme is the glorious “London” and I’m so sure after all the Jubilee, Olympics, Paralympics mania you are going to want to join in with this one!
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!
