Calligraphy by Kelly Patrice Calligraphy

Last year we did a blog series called Monthly Mood Boards.  At the start of every month we shared a mood board with images and colors we were crushing on for that month.  We had so much fun with this series and we hope that you found inspiration in them.  We loved this series so much that we have decided to carry it over to this year; however, for 2018, we will be sharing the boards seasonally rather of monthly!  We are smack dab in the middle of winter so it is the perfect time to share our Winter Mood Board.

Despite that fact that it doesn’t really feel like winter here in So Cal, I’m still enjoying all of the lovely things that come with winter – warm drinks, wearing boots, and cozy nights in with my family.  From a design perspective, when I think of winter I think of warm welcoming colors and lots of texture.  We incorporated both of these things into this season’s mood board.  I’m obsessed with all things velvet and though velvet can be used all year long, I think winter is the season when it really shines!  I love combining rich velvet with more flowy fabrics like silk and chiffon for a unexpected contrast.  As you may know, I always like to include a metallic (or mixed metallics) in my designs.  Gold has been the go to metallic for quite a while and it feels refreshing and fitting to include silver as the metallic in this board.  The dark blue reminds us that we are still in the depths of winter (in some places at least 🙂 but we also incorporated some beautiful peaches and dusty blues to remind us that spring is right around the corner.
