Mood Board Contest: Lakeside Retreat by Rachel Stewart

This is the last entry! Well, the last one that I will post. There are many more, but some of the links were dead, images not sharp enough or too small, not enough information, etc. We need to get back to the regularly scheduled program here on decor8, so the next post about this contest will contain a link that will take you to a short survey where you’ll be asked to vote for your favorite four. Wrapping up this contest today is a lakeside retreat from Vermont-based Rachel Stewart that looks like absolute getaway perfection to me.

Name: Rachel Stewart
Occupation: Color Designer/Graphic Designer
Location: Vermont
Theme: Green Mountain Lakeside Retreat
Inspiration: Lately I am OBSESSED with homes, floorplans, furniture, decorating etc. I knew immediately what I wanted to create for this mood board: my dream lake house using Lake Champlain and Vermont as my inspiration. Every night I come down the stairs at work and see the beautiful blue green sky and the mountains across the lovely lake. What a dream to have a home on the lake and be able to see that view everyday. Since moving here to Vermont I have noticed my taste change as I am inspired by new cultures and people. It is very earthy and natural here. People are more aware of the environment and willing to change their life styles even if it means that they are maybe not as comfortable (like riding a bike in the rain or paying more for organic heathly local produce). I love the “hippy” styles that the girls sport and the outdoor lifestyle of everyone. I have to admit it is not really me though, so I decided to create the board with a style that would fit in Vermont and still have my personality. Hope it inspires others as well! Thanks Amy Butler for motivating me to be creative and decor8 for pulling it together.

Thank you for entering the decor8/Amy Butler mood board contest, Rachel.

Okay everyone – time to start voting… Get ready, I’ll post the survey monkey link soon!

    This is a terrific mood board!I like the old industrial pieces paired up with natural pieces like that incredible gnarled wood table. And the modern touch of fabric brings it all together. Good job!
