MBD (Mood Board Drama) featuring a Modernistic Vibe.

Woohoo, is it Friday already? OMG, I mean I am incredibly excited about the weekend! I will be preparing for a photoshoot with a space that was designed by me. It is so fun, as well as exciting, to see the result of a design project once it is officially complete. I can’t wait to post the details on what transpired before, during, and after the overall design process.

However, when it comes to Modern Design, I am always crushing on this style. I love to combine bold colors because I don’t believe in sterile rooms. As seen with this mood board, the red and yellow create the perfect contrast against the dark backdrop, which creates a fabulous focal point. Red has always been my first love when dealing with color, and yellow is my second love. When combined, boy do they stand out and give way to a dominate wow factor!

Design Tip: Modern, Modernism, or Modernistic, is about clean, crisp lines, along with the use of materials such as metal, glass, and steel. However, it is considered a dramatic style and requires a statement. So, therefore, this is where I like to incorporate the perfect color palette, which can be simple, but yet bold.
