Wendy's Mood Board with Joie de Vivre

Wendy's Mood Board with Joie de Vivre

Full of life and vibrancy, Joie de Vivre is also an elegant design; a pictorial story that encourages you to consider every element. Brought to life during the pandemic, she shares the story of the importance of connecting with the natural world.

She is an exuberant slice of life, full of shimmering detail and pretty colour.  She features a soft, ombre, green wool backdrop with colourful flora, foliage and birds picked out in silk, and a grounding lilac base.

Wendy has brought together some rather beautiful pieces in her latest mood board, with each piece taking inspiration from our Joie de Vivre.

‘Colours are definitely a driver for me and I’m drawn to certain combinations, although they do tend to change frequently! But green, pink and lilac are deep-rooted favourites; green for growth, pink for love and lilac for that little bit of inspirational insight. I feel the colours used in Joie de Vivre are hopeful and joyful, and they certainly played their part in inspiring this design.'
