Most of New House's collections usually last 3 years, so whatever we're doing, we often ask Laura to create a few mood boards. Our major work this year is our new roller blind and accessory collection, so Laura has made mood boards for the mid-point of these collections, which is Autumn/Winter 2013 - 14 :
Precious Cosmos : Inspiration is drawn from the surfaces and textures of the moon and our solar system. A new play on light and dark shades and a theme that is both striking and dramatic.
Colour Dark shimmering tones of midnight blue and sepia are lightened against smoky greys, copper and sea grass. A timeless palette between shadow and light.
Rustic Retreat : Natural materials are enriched with luscious yarns and landscapes, creating a mood of warmth and comfort. The mood creates a fun, relaxed and simple atmosphere for everyday living.
Colour A collection of comforting, mid tone colours, honey and oat tones mix with candied lime, zesty coral and warm orange.
Tender Escape : A soft elegant mood that takes its inspiration from the wintery shapes of nature. Think of bare trees creating intricate lace-like patterns against the sky or crisp, frost-covered foliage. Combine these motifs with ultra soft yarns and fur to create a look of understated luxury. A mood to cocoon yourself in
Colour A muted palette of vegetal soft greys and taupes that have faded with time. Pigments of tea stained neutrals are used with mink, washed sand and limestone greys.
