Moody Monday: Sea + Citrus Sitting Room

By Kate Riley June 4, 2012

Good morning all and welcome to another week!  I still can’t believe it’s June already, my word when did that happen? 

I’ve been thinking…  I can’t get enough of great full room designs and because I’ve finally figured out a lot of the tools in Photoshop Elements (yahoo!) I’ve been doing a lot of playing around in that program and I just decided from time to time I’m going to create rooms that don’t exist but really should exist if it were up to me and feature them here.

Welcome to the first (of I have no idea how many) Moody Monday made up rooms where I draft a mood board for an imaginary space just because I feel like it.  This week’s version is a sunny sitting room filled with layers of blue and accents in citrus shades with a few of my favorite warm tone metallic accents thrown in the mix too.  And since I’m obsessed with natural wood bead chandeliers at this moment, I had to add a gorgeous one suspended above as a finishing touch.

Coming up next, the latest on our built in window seat, it’s looking so good!




  1. this is a great mood board…i love the different textures and patterns that you’ve implemented into this design. 2 of my favorite colors combined together, great design. i think for the side table on the left side can add a little bit of color….maybe a turquoise color table would be nice too :)

  2. I love this! Just this morning, I created my first post on my new blog about vision boards. I had no idea you could do this with Photoshop! Thanks for the recommendation!

  3. I too am learning Photoshop! Haven’t gotten this far yet, but it sure looks like fun. I bought the shootflyshoot photoshop videos {thank you for sharing them with us} and am hoping they can give me a lot of insight and information to really dive into doing stuff like this.

  4. Wow, fantastic. You make Photoshop compositions look easy! I LOVE that chair. I’ve been obsessed with paisley-type patterns since my friend had gorgeous new grey and black paisley flooring fitted in her kitchen. Wasn’t sure at first, thought it might be a bit too kitsch (even for my tastes) but it’s stunning.
