Moodboards Elle Decoration
'Inspired by'... Elle Decoration June 2012
Welcome to the first in my 'Inspired by' moodboard series, which features a double page spread that took my fancy in this month's Elle Decoration.
Do you find that you have so many favourite pages in magazines that they tend to get forgotten in the pile? You then find them a few months later and wish you'd torn them out for some decorating inspiration, or to simply create a simple display of your favourite objects.
Whether it's a particular colour, a beautiful home, or a fashion spread that takes your eye, pull out the page and create a moodboard-it doesn't have to be anything too grand or complicated. Bring in your favourite colour chips-like the fantastic new colour card from Little Greene-see below (more about this soon). Build on it a little at a time until you're happy with the finished look and you could even try re-creating the scene as I've done below... Which is your favourite montage?
