The kitchen is almost complete! I still have to tackle my built-in oven/micro issue, but we are sorting that out soon, and I have a few areas that need work (changing out plugs, adding pencil tile trim, and trimming out the vent hood). I want to hug my kitchen every time I see it, and I have been waiting for that moment since I moved in!
As I wrap that up, I have the: living room,entryway, laundry/mud room, and guest/Wyatt’s bath to plan out, ALONG with my parents master bath design! So today I wanted to share with you my fireplace mood board as I start the design process for these spaces. Mood boards really help put everything you are envisioning together so you can get an idea of what it will look like. I am looking into the proper software to really detail my designs, but until then, I am using powerpoint. Have a space you really want to tackle? Start with a mood board. Save images you like and put it together in a presentation. Find the coffee table you have been eyeing and pair it with a rug you saw when shopping to see if it works. Plan out every detail of the room you want to make over before you make any purchases, and I promise, you will be happy in the end. This will help you think of the small details that are easily overlooked, too!
Fireplace mood board design 1 and 2:
As you can see, it’s not perfect, but helps me visualize and map everything out. Design 1 includes cement tiles, a white chunky mantel, and shiplap (it will be white shiplap, the picture makes it look beige). I am definitely mounting my TV on the fireplace because it works for my furniture layout, so I made sure to add it into the design. I have an open concept kitchen/living, so the blue tiles tie in with my vent hood and island.
Design 2 is shiplapping the entire fireplace, with the white floating mantel, and two sconces. Simple, but perfect!
Once I play around with my design a little more and get everything finalized, I will create a mood board for the entire living room to make sure it all comes together the way I want.
Do you plan on sprucing up your space? I would love to see your designs!
Happy Mood Boarding,
