MBD (Mood Board Drama) featuring Rustic style and a bit more.

Yikes, is Friday here already? Geesh, time does not wait for no one — a prime example of why I refuse to procrastinate. Even though I will be preparing for a photoshoot this weekend, I'm still excited! So, what if it is not what I call the average quality time. Either way, I cannot go wrong because I will be doing what I genuinely love and passionate about, which is designing!

With that said, sometimes while brainstorming on unique ideas for a specific design project, I often-times include more than one style. In doing this, I always make sure that the client's preferred choice is first and foremost, but I also leave room to show other alternatives, which can provide additional options when a client is indecisive between one or more styles.

Even though the chandelier is screaming rustic, there is also a hint of modern and contemporary details as well.

Design Tip: When mixing more than one style, if done correctly, they can become a complement to each other.

When all elements are combined, each brings the room together cohesively – as can be seen above with simple decorative objects and furniture, a floor lamp, bold color, and a dominant area rug.
