I love colour and flowers are beautiful and create a wonderful atmosphere and setting for a pleasant mood and wonderful aroma when home staging, they come in different textures and shapes and a lovely vase of flowers can bring an additional vocal point to a room and also brighten your mood.
If you’re thinking of painting a feature wall then you could bring a beautiful bloom to you paint supplier and have them match the colour.
Designers use mood or concept boards to convey the overall feel of a project, putting together images and objects which inspire, target desires and creativity and innovation.
Mood boards are also very useful at the early stages of a project as a guide tool to show to clients for approval before proceeding further.
The items on a board would include samples of fabric, wallpaper samples, Paint colours, Flooring, and pictures or photographs of furniture that you want to incorporate in your design.
I always advise clients to have a mood/concept board done as it will give them a great idea of how the room will look like when it’s finished.
Below are a few examples of mood or concepts boards for a variety of projects.

(Quote from the Mail online)
Did you know that you only have 10 seconds to impress a prospective buyer! Does your home have kerb appeal?
Does it create a great impression?
Choosing a home is an enormous decision and if the crucial first impression is favourable a buyer is more likely to proceed so you need to get the buyer to emotionally connect with the property.
Don’t drop your asking price or keep waiting for that sale.
A home staging investment is always less than your first price reduction.

They would look brilliant hanging over a bar.

Well its July already and today it’s miserable and raining, I was looking through some photos and saw this one that I took a couple of years ago on a nice sunny July day.
Colour always inspires me and I love the way that the butterfly and marigolds blend together.
I would love to see a room, colour washed in these colours and when I walked in it would brighten up my day.
