My July Mood Board

Posted By Gudy Herder / July 8, 2015 / 8 Comments

The Tropical Trend is all over and during a speaking engagement for the Barcelona’s business women community, I decorated a wall with all things I thought could be cheerful and belong somehow to a tropical theme characterized by its density and overload of materials and colors – like the jungle itself. If you follow me along, you know it is not quite my color palette but tropics are full of color, so I was happy to adapt :)

You know by now, I am always working with a concept before starting choosing my materials so my keywords here had been: density (and a certain, ‘all over the place’ feel which was easy to create by pinning lots of materials), green palm leaves, lush vegetation, botanical prints, flower fabrics and color chips of different greens, earthy tones from terracotta to copper orange, yellow, pale pink and a splash of bold pink. A few wooden samples painted with the same shades from Farrow & Ball were underlying the color scheme here.

The Washi Tape I used came in pale pink and green not wanting to use more colors. Anyhow, I am using much less preferring the cleaner look&feel of a double-sided tape in many projects now.

The June Mood Board I had done for Farrow & Ball last month showed already a very similar look&feel. It’s the summer vibe, I guess:) G, x
