Propping for moodboards

I can’t believe it’s been over a week since my last post, I have been back to back with jobs over the past few months and so sadly my little blog has suffered ;0(

I’ve been out propping for a private client this morning, and so it was off to Kings Road to begin my research.  I always come here when I need to create a moodboard as you have everything you need (even though it takes forever to walk the length of Kings Road!) I start at Chelsea Harbour and then work my way back to Sloane Square via Osborne & Little and Anthropologie. Above is the beginnings of my moodboard, my client wants an earthy palette and is keen to have a little bit of sparkle (or rather ‘bling’) and so I thought the Rabanna wallpaper from Osborne & Little would be perfect, it has a subtle glint when it catches the light and adds depth and texture to the scheme.  I’m also loving the new A/W ranges from John Lewis and so I am sure we’ll be spending a few pennies there!  I always have my trusty colour scheme book which I picked up at Maison in Paris, it has a gorgeous selection of soft and muted colorways, very ‘Farrow & Ball’. It’s called Jeux de couleures 2.and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who puts together decorating schemes.

I couldn’t resist a little visit to Anthropologie (they have an amazing sale on at the moment).  As usual, their display was fantastic, they had a selection of old school chairs suspended from the ceiling with a picture of her majesty as the centerpiece.

I had to take a picture of my favourite street in this area: Bywater Street, SW3  The pretty mews is home to stunning town houses painted in an array of pastel colours.
