Hello, everyone! It’s Mari here from Design Shuffle, a fabulous online community for interior designers and design lovers from around the world. Being a writer for Design Shuffle allows me to visit great interior design blogs like Lily & Rose as a guest blogger. Today’s design inspiration topic is creating mood in living spaces. Often, when the phrase “mood in interior design” is used, it refers to setting a romantic mood, but mood is so much more than that. The mood or feel of a home’s environment can have a positive effect on those who live there. Color palette, lighting, space, flow and even pattern and texture can affect the mood in interior designs. Here are eight interesting ways to create mood in design. Please enjoy!
Though this beautiful natural environment is mood-setting in itself, the wide open glass “walls” and the blue and white of the draperies reinforces that uniquely special mood that only the sea can create.
Another blue space takes on an entirely different mood than the one pictured above. A rustic and inviting space welcomes family and visitors immediately as they enter this lovely foyer.
A chic, somewhat masculine, dining space is infused with a whimsical, light-hearted mood by the addition of a totally unexpected hanging light fixture. I love the mix of contemporary furnishings and beautiful traditional architectural elements.
We don’t often think of mood when discussing kitchen design ideas, but something as simple as this irresistible tin container and potted plant can imbue a space with a bright cheerful feel.
This home office includes a special children’s area that sets the mood for quiet play and reading. Colorful happy living environments help children and adults thrive.
Creating a mood for relaxation is one of the most sought after elements in the master bath. Soft colors, crystal chandelier, a deep soaking tub and even the small vase of pink flowers create that coveted retreat-like atmosphere in this spacious bathroom.
Though exceptionally formal, this pale sitting room takes on the perfect mood for elegantly relaxed entertaining. How lovely is the chandelier dropped from a silvery domed ceiling?
This gorgeous black, white and gold bedroom design creates a slightly glam version of bedroom as retreat. The mood is all about luxurious relaxation. What a successful interior design has been created here—spellbinding!
