More Moody Chic


I coined the term first, but here it is, perfectly, exemplified.

mim Design – A South Yarra design practice.

Stunning wardrobe doors and grass cloth feature.

Love the ROYAL blue chair, the black trim, the lamp and the pintuck blanket.

Love the stepped arch way, reminds me of my skirting boards.

These marble semi floating shelves are what heaven is made with!

Light interiors punctuated with dark.


I love that they aren’t flat. Love the glossy irregular texture.

THESE TILES, I want for my kitchen splash back.

A bay window. Honestly, is there anything better in architectural details than a bay window?

I am biased.

This bathroom is just heaven. Natural stone heaven.

I love the crazy pavers and of course the BUXUS!

People, let’s get real. DO NOT be afraid of dark tones. Sick of seeing stark white interiors. I would rather die then walk into an all white interior, let alone, live there. I keep saying “like a hospital” but my sister disagrees with this, she says hospitals are green. I have to agree. They are a bit, with that sort of minty green colour. So, let’s say dental surgery. And with those over head lights they put on you.. akin to downlights! GHASTLY.

I loathe down lights in living areas and bedrooms! They are tolerable is working spaces like your kitchen and bathroom, but for the love of God, no where else.

Another thing that is key to an amazing interior is TEXTURE. Introduce it and do it NOW!!!!!!

  1. Couldn’t agree with you more – while I love to have a light base for most of the rooms in our house (it’s not that big) and I love my white kitchen, I love using dark tones likes black and grey everywhere to give some weight and interest. I thought I might have been the only one though so glad to see I’m not :)

      Hallelujah! My house isn’t big either. To be honest, I don’t think I could do those dark wardrobes, they might be a bit dominating, but I admire the guts.

      Me too! It is heaven. I never considered a dark vanity. But it is probably a good idea for me as I am messy, especially with make-up application!
