It’s been a long 3 days editing tile selections for the Decatur home remodel project. Tile has to be here in 2 weeks; New Mood Design’s choices must be in stock! Creating a Master Bathroom that’s mostly very dark with nearly black floor + wall tile enveloping a white vanity cabinet area. Adding geometric, modern + patterned, white + mirrored mosaic as a bold + popping accent in the room! #newmooddesign #atlantainteriordesigner #remodel #modernhomes #tile #pattern #mosaic #blackandwhite #masterbathroom #porcelaintile #homerenovation #bathroomremodel #design #workfromhome #april #deadlines ...

New Mood Design is working intently to finish tile designs for a Decatur home renovation. Here, playing with floor + wall tile combinations for a Master Bathroom that’s connected to the bedroom I’ve painted a rich “Nurture Green” with “Worldly Gray” trey ceiling. The tile editing process is more challenging in this shelter-at-home era. Showrooms are closed. I don’t have every sample on hand at home. I’ll have to select some online and trust my instincts + experience.

New Mood Design is grateful for April deadlines. It’s a full month, creating room designs using wall + floor tile surfaces for multiple client projects. An entire home with kitchen, cocktail bar + 4 bathrooms (Decatur). Two kitchens (Stone Mountain + Montgomery, AL). Two master bathrooms (Montgomery, AL + Buckhead). Love tile! So many fabulous choices + collections! 💜 Working remotely and it’s working! 🤷🏻‍♀️👌 #newmooddesign #tile #modern #atlantainteriordesigner #pattern #kitchendesign #bathroomdesign #modernhomes #color ...

Designer-life today. Large project: remote. New Mood Design’s Montgomery, AL client’s custom-built, 1998 home is 12,000 sq.ft. Redo time! I’m designing a new kitchen, laundry room, master bathroom + closet, fireplace. Plus selecting large-format tile for the entire main floor. (We will meet in-person on April 18!) #newmooddesign #remoteworking #renovation #floorplans #atlantainteriordesigner #alabama #modern #remodelling #kitchendesign #lovedesignliveempire ...

Builder sent pics! Happy to see this Master Bathroom near completion. We designed the whole house - a 1920s home in Knoxville, TN that was fully demolished inside for a complete redo by New Mood Design. #newmooddesign #atlantainteriordesigner #modern #custom #tileshower #blackandwhite #porcelaintile #crossvillestudiosatlanta #knoxville #masterbathroom #shower #tub #pattern #bold ...

It’s so gratifying when a client sends a text update of their renovation. Especially with the note, “Finished!!!! We love it! Thanks for your help.” New Mood Design selected a white, glossy MultiShapes wall tile for the backsplash to give this monochromatic kitchen a bolder look with this three-dimensional tile! 💜 #newmooddesign #kitchendesign #tile #atlantainteriordesigner #contemporary #modern #white #backsplashtile #glossy #whitekitchen #duneceramica #interiordesign ...

Happily, New Mood Design's concept for the Buckhead master bathroom + closet was 100% approved. Artistic, quality lighting is always a highlight in our design plans. This is going to be one very sophisticated + beautiful contemporary space! #newmooddesign #interiordesign #bathroomdesign #lighting #modern #blownglass #artemide #techlighting #elegant #renovation #contemporary ...

Happily, New Mood Design's concept for the Buckhead master bathroom + closet was 100% approved. We obtained a City of Atlanta commercial construction permit first go-round! (We're really good!!) Now product procurement starts! Moving from design concept to client approval, then onto permitting + product purchase is a longer timeline than many realize. This project began in March. Based on the lead time for products to arrive, and advance scheduling of contractor and trades team, I'm aiming for a September demolition with completion date of December. It's all worth it! This is going to be one very sophisticated + beautiful contemporary space in 2020! #newmooddesign #interiordesign #bathroomdesign #spaceplanning #demolition #renovation #modern #rebuild #floorplan #vision #revision ...

It was so enjoyable to spend a hot + humid Summer Solstice at the whitespace opening last night! Lots of friends there! Even more of a treat to see the "Primal Honesties" show by Katie Burke (1 of 3 artists on view). A grad of the University of Georgia (Athens) BFA in Fabric Design (2016), Kate Burke recently received the ArtFields 2019 Category Award for Textiles. You can see why (and New Mood Design has a new acquisition!) 💜 Kate Burke, "u love to loathe it," 2019, tulle, thread and acrylic matte medium, 120" x 78" (detail). #newmooddesign #artconsulting #interiordesigner #atlanta #artcollector #art #textileart #contemporaryart #kateburkestudio #artistsoninstagram #whitespace ...

So inspired by fabulous textile session! #newmooddesign #interiordesign #modern #atlanta #textiledesign #fabric #kravet #creationsmetaphores ...
