Dream Mood board

Here is the mood board I created for my room in Dubai.. Just looking at it is making me love it more and more.. The challenge with this room is that it is rather small.. this is my attempt to make it chic and well I won't say spacious but yes tidy of course.. The rug would preferably cover the entire floor.. bed will be without the headboard and ikea shelving is to make the side table areas.. a wide mirror to run along the entire length of the wall above the bed and the spotlights to be embedded either in the shelving or in the beam.. custom storage closets will cover the entire opposite wall.. console and the mirror will double as work table and the dressing table.. and the barcelona daybed for lounging otherwise..

And the best feature of all.. A custom designed wall clock. The idea still has to work out. I intend to use my daughter's black and white photos instead of the flowers.

Mooi version

What is one to do if the heart desires Mooi and the budget won't allow?

Here is what I did.. Created my own version with the help of not so simple technique.. but here is what I got 

Pretty happy with the results and it works very well with everything..

What you need to make this light is

  • an exercise ball, or i used my daughter's inflatable ball
  • yarn, 
  • wall paper glue,
  • gloves and mat,
  • Vaseline.
The procedure is very simple:

1. rub Vaseline all over the ball.
2.Draw a circle on top of the ball to insert light.
2. Dip yarn in the glue.
3. Now start wrapping it around the ball
4.Make sure you use gloves in order to avoid disastrously glued hands.
5. When the ball is wrapped enough, leave it overnight to dry.
6. Deflate the ball and you will have your pretty Mooi inspired pendant of your own
