mood boards

Combining function with fashion

Hey readers!  Today’s post is an exciting one! I’ve partnered with Ginna over at myprettypennies. 

 This is her office below. She wanted a face lift. The two key words I pulled from the consultation were that she wanted clean and organized.

She wanted to incorporate and office without looking too cluttery. She was open to adding built ins around the window as she wanted to hide toys if at all possible.

She was in agreement that the chevron rug was seriously dating the space. In the wise words of Maria Killam, timeless is boring! And boring is good, when it comes to design. You can inject trendy

features with accent pieces which are much cheaper to replace than larger items. Anywho, here’s the before pictures!


And here’s the mood board that I sent to her:

The room is designed around this rug that I absolutely love! The gold frames and lamp are pulled from the rug. The dot print is an art board to hand their daughter’s artwork. The bamboo blind would pull in texture that could also be picked up with the baskets and the desk. She wasn’t necessarily in the market for a new desk and chair, but sometimes it helps to see the complete vision to see the potential in a room.


Ginna and her hubby are expecting a new baby this year so I”m not sure when the room with be completed, but you can be sure that I’ll show it on here when it is! Cheers!
