Mood Board Contest: Absolute Freedom by Jana Valachovicova

This entry doesn’t require words from me. It speaks volumes on its own. I allowed it in the competition because of the feeling it evokes and the thought that went into creating it. I can also envision using some of the materials as furniture, such as the leather coat, so it’s works for me. See for yourself. It’s one of my favorites.

Name: Jana Valachovicova
Occupation: Manager (design is my hobby, but in the future it might become more.)
Your blog/website: www.jevedesign.cz (still under construction)
State/Country: Czech Republic
Theme: Everything is allowed, nothing is mandatory
Inspiration: The warmth and the scent of Tuscany, combined with the green freshness and mildness of Ireland. I love summer mornings when the grass is wet with dew and warm summer evenings filled with the sound of cicadas. I love the safe, relaxed feeling of comfortable home (perhaps even in the meaning of oasis or sanctuary), where you are free to do anything… but you do not have to do anything.
Notes: Here is the translation of all the Czech terms:
– Volnost = liberty (in this context, liberty / freedom to do anything you want).
– Oaza = oasis (a place of love, a place of peace, a place to rest, place to have fun, place where one is safe).
– ctvero rocnich obdobi = the four seasons of the year.
– muzete vsechno & nemusite nic = everything is allowed, nothing is mandatory.


Thank you for entering the decor8/Amy Butler mood board contest, Jana! I’ll post as many entries as I can fit in today, and then that’s it, the contest will wrap up and tomorrow we’ll all get to vote for our new winners. Yeah!

Name: Jeska Pettitt
Occupation: Retail manager
Blog: http://recordtheday.blogspot.com
Location: United Kingdom
Theme: Ladies only entertaining room, where you can read, socialize with friends, eat cake, drink tea, write or just have some well earned time alone.
Inspiration: An apple and almond tart and its description – slivers of cherry red apple look like delicate petals have floated down onto sweet, crisp pastry. Everywhere you turn it seems that there are flowers. Also a little of the indulgent side of Marie Antoinette.

Mood Board Contest: Beachy Modern by Flavia Leite

If spending time at the shore is your favorite way to relax, then you’ll really enjoy the color palette and Julia Rothman-inspired seaside modern room that Flavia pulled together. Natural wood combined with white lacquered furniture is such a pretty combination. And these colors – so serene!

Name: Flavia Leite
Occupation: Public Relations Manager
State/Country: Virginia, USA
Theme: Beachy Modern
Inspiration: I wanted to create a room dedicated to working on creative projects. I started with the blue, one of my favorite colors, and was going on a different direction until I saw the pink flamingo pattern by Julia Rothman. It inspired me to make the room brighter and more beach-y. Thanks for holding such a fun contest!

Mood Board Contest: Vintage Glam by Allison Hefner

Meet Allison, an aspiring interior designer that is inspired by a Betsey Johnson clutch. She calls her room, Vintage Glam, and we all know a mood board contest isn’t complete without at least one glam-tastic design in the mix. ;) Thank you for bringin’ it, Allison. I’d love to see this as a room.

Name: Allison Hefner
Occupation: Freelancer/aspiring interior designer
State/Country: Colorado/USA
Theme: Vintage Glam
Inspiration: A fabulous retro-inspired clutch from Betsey Johnson. I wanted to capture the essence of glamour and elegance that defined the era of the ‘Rat Pack’ but with a more edgier influence. By coating the walls in a rich, opulent aubergine, I decided to give the room a modern twist by keeping the decor clean and simple with an all white and black palette. Accent colors are kept to a minimum with touches of pink and red that ‘pop’ and compliment the purple walls. I also wanted to add texture to the room by complimenting the key features of the purse – feathers and reflective surfaces, which are represented by decor elements such as the mirrored side table and goose feather pendant.
