Home Build | Kidsroom + TDC Style Map


A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I'd been working on a new blog-related interiors venture, and I'm happy to report that it's coming together, albeit a bit slowly. I'm going to be providing an interior styling service called TDC Style. TDC being the abbreviations for The Design Chaser. As you know I like to keep things simple around here! 

I'm currently setting up some styling options and pricing etc, and will let you know about those in due course. In the meantime, I thought I'd share one of my ideas with you, the TDC Style Map, so that you can get an idea of what to expect. Style Map is a room moodboard, which brings together ideas for a particular space. It includes a colour palette, furniture and accessories, together with a breakdown of items and where they can be sourced. 

This little project here is a personal one, in that it's the Style Map for my eldest son's bedroom in our new home. While we will be incorporating some of his existing pieces, I had no trouble substituting these with some cool new online finds to create the moodboard. Both the boys rooms are quite small, but they have very good built-in wardrobes, so we've done away with the dresser which worked well in previous homes. The monochrome palette will provide a great base for some bright pops of colour, in this case turquoise and yellow.
