If you’ve been following along in my redesign of Henry’s room than you know that I have showed two moodboards to date: a persimmon, grey and orange room with a bit of a sporty, international flair and an indigo, yellow and red room with a sea-faring flotsam and jetsam theme. Today, I’m going to show you the final moodboard.
The inspiration for this third moodboard is a result of these two rooms:
The basis of the room is the Cole & Son Woods wallpaper which I thought could act as a grown-up version of the wallpaper tree he had in his nursery. I’ve always loved this wallpaper although I’ve been reluctant in the past to spend money on wallcoverings. My feeling is if you’re going to put something on your walls and spend good money on it than it makes more sense to buy art. Just my personal opinion — I could be swayed. Have a look at this third moodboard and tell me what you think.
The room is primarily monochromatic – a study in white and and shades of grey. To keep it from getting to stark I would add in lots of wood like this intricately patterned David Trubridge designed Coral Pendant light and this custom made bed with much needed built-in storage underneath. To play up the rustic, outdoors aspect of the wallpaper I’d thrown in a few sheepskins and maybe a cowskin rug. Once again, the Ikea Malm dressers we already own and the Eames rocking chair would fit in perfectly. David Weeks’ Ursa bear sculpture/toy would be a fitting object to display on a shelf and these simple wood wall dots would make great hooks. I’d cover the bed in simple white linens and keep the window treatments inconspicuous as well. Overall the look is contemporary and clean with a touch of nature.
So, now you have seen all three moodboards which one would you choose: the persimmon, grey and green sporty theme, the flotsam and jetsam sea-faring board or this clean and contemporary woodsy scheme? Time is of the essence as I’d like to see Henry in his new room before the baby comes. Let me know what you think?Image credits: Haus Interior via Decor Pad James Merrell
