Our second class since we launched Bloesem Class, let's recap Decorate Like a Pro with Jurianne Matter from The Netherlands! Jurianne is the paper jedi behind all the lovely paper flowers and ornaments that brighten up our studio. But this time instead of paper, she was teaching us the art of interior styling and home decoration.
Each student was asked to bring their favorite interior accessory to class. We loved all the different items we saw during the class. It really told us alot about each student and was also the key item that guided them while they learned how to construct their own moodboard. With her years of experience, Jurianne was able to guide everyone and read each moodboard to understand each individual. She helped her students sieve through the mountains of inspiration they found in all the magazines provided.
Jurianne showed the class some moodboards and they had to guess the type of person that moodboard would fit. A great way to get an idea of what a moodboard should look like, and what kind of important details you most definitely should include in one so that it can be considered a good moodboard.
An important thing Jurianne said was that if you can read a moodboard properly then it is a well made moodboard. The point of a moodboard is about being able capture the essence of a space or a person (whatever you are making a moodboard for) using key visuals.
The final activity of the class, as seen in the images above, was a practice of interior styling. Students got up and were asked to place, shift or remove an item in the setting Jurianne had prepared. It was a fun little exercise that allowed the students to practised the skills they had just learnt from Jurianne. There is no right and wrong in this exercise and Jurianne helped with suggestions.
We haven't included any photos of the catering but we defintely fed our students some super yum lunch and treats by Make my day Zoet. You can have a look at the post we did about Maybelle's calligraphy class for an idea of the delicious goodness we enjoyed.
