I recently received the latest Summer/Spring Toast catalogue, and was inspired by the Mustard and Ink colours in the top left hand picture. I love to see how pictures from magazines can be translated into real life and decided to break the image down into materials. When transferring inspiration from photos into mood boards, its important to take into account what you like about the picture, is it the colours? the mood? the textures? Do I want the mustard colour to play a bigger part in my scheme and use it as a wall colour? or do I tone it down and infuse the colour into cushions? The exterior colour of my studio provided the perfect backdrop, paired with a white chair, mustard toned cushion and wooden crate, and I have my own interpretation of the Toast image.
