This is my first mood board ever and I think I got a little carried away. I kept wanting to add more and more and more and had to remind myself that I’m not King Henry VII and the room is only the size of a closet. Anyway, here’s the flavor I’m going for. Some of the ideas came from these inspiration pics. The tile is meant to take up only one wall, and the rest of the room will be the darker grey. If you have any ideas, I’d love to get your perspective.
Other bloggers make it look so easy to throw together a mood board, like they did it over their lunch break, but it took me a long time to settle on these bits and pieces. I can surf for light fixtures alone for hours. Even now I feel like I haven’t exhausted all the avenues. What if there’s something better, cheaper, cooler? Sounds like the makings of analysis paralysis. I’ll just have to push forth. My next step is to call the town and find out what’s required for a builder’s permit.
In any case, I got another boost of confidence when I stumbled upon DIY Diva, the blog of my new hero. This girl does full-on house additions, with framing and everything, and puts up drywall BY HERSELF. I’m completely sucked in. It’s like a contractor’s soap opera.
