When we got approached by Minted to join their Design Trade Moodboard Challenge, we knew this was right up our alley. I love creating moodboards for every project I do. It is truly one of my favorite parts of the job. I love the process, and I love how it gives me a clear vision for how the finished product will turn out. The challenge was this … To create a moodboard around the look of one of Minted’s many pieces of art from their independent artist community. Here’s what I came up with:

When I found this stunning piece of art by Lauren Packard entitled “There’s a Lot Going on Underneath”, it truly spoke to me as I am sure many of you can relate right now. Each day I have so many mixed emotions; fear, excitement, overwhelm, high highs, and low lows. There’s a lot going on underneath my exterior smile, but I am learning each day in this new way of living to find beauty and happiness in every way I can. Whether it be through cooking something special with my kids or scrolling through beautiful images to find artwork I can truly relate to. 

For my moodboard, I wanted to create a space that is cozy and can easily be lived in, but still fits my design aesthetic and the high end deign of my clientele. I was so inspired by Lauren Packard’s use of color and texture in her artwork. I love the simplicity of it, yet if you look closely you can see how complex it really is. I wanted to create the same idea in my space using texture, shape, and layered color to give the same visual effect. Let us know what you think!
