moodboards for my final project

Hello all.

It's been a little while.  I've been very busy with my final assignment.  The project is designing the interior of a vacation home with an ocean view.  I decided to create something contemporary and modern but with some rustic and industrial elements; rustic for charm and warmth and industrial for some edge.  I let my imaginations of the sea lead the way.  So I am going to share my moodboards with you so that you know what I have been spending most of my time on.  Be sure to let me know what you think...

That was the hard part.  Developing a coherent scheme for an entire home takes a lot of creative energy - but it truly is my favourite part. Now with a clear concept in mind,  I can begin drawing floor plans, furniture and lighting plans, elevations, writing client briefs and contractor specification sheets.  Not so difficult but pretty time consuming.

I'm really loving working on my final project.  Everything I've learned is really coming together and as I work I feel I am exuding a sort of mad vibe - as in passionate or maybe slightly obsessed.  I know this is a good sign.  Everything is flowing.  I am much quicker now at pulling a scheme together than I was when I began my studies.  I'm very satisfied by that because I feel like it proves something in my mind has changed/grown/developed/evolved with regards to interior design. 

Off to the drawing board now...

Happy Sunday to you all...
and stay tuned for 7 Sachen...


  1. I specially love the kitchen. The chairs are great for wet swimsuits! I think that some open shelving is perfect so guests can easily find their way around the kitchen.

  2. Thanks Coco!

    Thanks Louise! Those are good points you make about the kitchen. Also, I imagine that in real life, that round kitchen table would definitely be extendable to accommodate more people when need be.

  3. Yes it would be great! But what would be even more perfect is if in "real life" this house would be in the south of France or Italy, and it would be yours, and you would happily invite my family of five to stay all summer... On peut toujours rêver...

  4. Ah oui! J'en rêve en ce moment =)

    I like the way your mind works Louise, heehee.
