Hard to choose! You put the schemes together so beautifully that they both look great. But seeing Soft again, I think that's still my favourite. It gives just a bit more colour, without going overboard. I think it would stay interesting longer...

Leena

I agree with Petra, they both do look great. But I'd go with the natural look. I just love those hooks made of branches.
But I'd choose the natural one based mainly on the fact that I'm not a big fan of violet/lilac color and the wing hooks are maybe just a bit too humoristic. But if the owner of the bathroom loves lilac, well don't listen to me then!

Dear Benita, your work surely is awesome - and seeing these digital mood boards put together so nicely I can't resist asking you: How do you do that? Would you care to spill the beans on that? thanks!

Maggie

the twig hooks totally do it for me, so my fave is Natural

Sandy Bowers

Love the natural look! It's great to see one space converted into multiple looks just by changing accessories. Thanks!

I love your moodboards. This time I prefer the NATURAL. It suits a bathroom well, almost like a beach inside.

Definitely the NATURAL!!!

Ha ha did you know you need government permission to cut dow trees here even if it's a tree in your own garden :-) We are very tree protective ;-)
I also love the natural theme. And I could have the hooks made and sent over from Sweden :-) We have a lof of driftwood too. Thank you, thank you so much!

Kari

Glad to know I am not the only sucker for beautiful packaging. Both my husband and I often buy things in part based on the looks.

Driftwood is even more beautiful!!!

I like the Natural one better. I think it makes it feel like my idea of a spa. The baskets and trees bring some texture to the bathroom, which is really beautiful but kind of austere.

I know I will like Bright so Bright the most!

OMG! Let me know if I should chop one down for you :)

I prefer the Soft one better, although the Natural is also fab. I would love to be able to do mood boards as well. In fact your ideas (these and previous)have inspired me to do my own Interior Decorating course if only to do my own house.

Looking forward to seeing the Bright one!

Here's how I do it (I'm no expert though):
* Select the image from the web. Right click and "Save image as". Always remember to give credit for anything taken from the web! In this case I'm giving them traffic:)
* Open image (usually a JPEG) in Photoshop. Save as a GIF.
* Open the GIF version of the image and use magic wand or other cutting out tool to mark around the edges of your item and click outside the selection with the wand and click delet. The background is now gone. Save.
* I use Corel Draw to make the collage and layer the items but this can also be done in PS. I'll be learning how to do it in Photoshop too though (taking classes right now). I assume you can use any software for this where images can be pasted. Save as JPG.
* Done!

I love the Natural! What kind of towels would you recommend to go with this theme?

Purple Area

Lovely pastels!!

Punctuation Mark

loving the soft... it can be mixed a of other things...

Benita ~ Chez Larsson

I'd personally go with crisp white towels but if the tile is pure white I'd consider towels matching the bath mat.

Lori

We are not, of course, surprised to hear that you would go with crisp white. ;-)

Lori

LOVE the natural. I would not have thought of using round containers, but I love them.

Jane

An alternative to using a tree, http://www.bosign.se/shop/product.lasso?cat=forvaring&id=291204&list=Hangare_for&-session=login:4CA61F30054cd2F46EkqkWEBC551#

Not natural, but nifty. I have two in my front hall for keys and scarves. My husband calls them the "hall tree" which in the US is an old-fashion piece of furniture with a mirror and hooks, sometimes a bench.

Gosia

Natural is my favourite. Amazing work, Benita.
All the best.
