1950’s Hong Kong Mood Board – Interior Design Ideas

Mood boards are a tool used by designers to communicate a theme without it getting too “themey” – if that makes sense. The images are compiled to impart a feeling and mood. Mood boards are not blue prints in that you are not meant to go out and buy all of the items pictured and create a themed room. Instead you are meant to get inspired and see what you can do.

We have a new mood board for you that is based on a specific time period and place. This moodboard is about Hong Kong in the late 1950’s and early 60’s. This is a time period that has been gorgeously showcased in the movie, “In the Mood For Love” by Wong Kar Wei. The amazing street photographer Fan Ho also has memorialized this time period in stunning black and white photographs. This moodboard is almost like a far away pen pal to the Gatsby mood board from a while ago. This has the elegant styling that is leading people to use more art deco inspiration in their decor but it adds a fresher, more exotic element. The pastel color palette imediately brings us to the time period – 1950/1960 and then the Asian details add texture to the design.

Our Parkrose Collection would be absolutely perfect for a bedroom of this style.
