The Garden Shed Project: Earthy Mood Board – ORC 02
It’s love. But you already knew that.
I’ve put together an Earthy Mood Board for The Garden Shed Project, which is my official project entry for the Spring 2023 One Room Challenge® event.
See all week two entries here.
You’ll find a color scheme and see some sample materials I’ve picked up from my local hardware store.
I cannot wait to see this she shed of mine come to life and turn into the garden shed of my dreams.

My favorite design feature
I custom designed this shed, if you didn’t catch the first post in this project series.
I decided to flip a standard shed transom window sideways and stacked 3 together for the ultimate natural light opportunity.
I also love the small octagon window that doesn’t open, but adds a visual element and design opportunity.

A Color Scheme Inspired By Mother Nature
It shouldn’t be a surprise that I’ve taken Mother Nature’s lead for a color scheme. I want ALL the greens!
I also want to keep a neutral, cozy color palette that matches the exterior of the Northridge Project Cape Cod, which is white.
The interior of the shed will be kept simplistic, but will feel warm and cozy…even if it will mainly be used for gardening and will get dirty. Literally, ha!
Speaking Of Getting Dirty...
I’m very much designing the interior of my garden shed to be both a beautiful, inspiring space for me to spend time in and a functional space because it WILL get dirty.
My hope is that I can show both the pretty final tour and share the real life, here’s what it looks like when I use it as a real garden shed. Wish me luck.
Let's Talk About Design Material Ideas
The Design Materials Mood Board
I went to my local Lowes to search for some beautiful tile and brushed brass. I cannot WAIT to see my design vision come to life.
I’m also excited about my exotic White Anne plant from Peru, whom I’ve lovingly named Luna.
As you can see I’m going for a black and white base for the flooring, work spaces and for the walls.
I’ll be integrating natural fibers in my rugs and will have beautiful, natural wood elements inside.
There’s a DIY pegboard project I’ve been wanting to do for years now and will also be incorporating some bead board panels throughout.
Next On The Project List
Once cleared out, I’ll be sharing a video tour with you as well as a blueprint style sketch of the design I’ll be working on for the interior.
