Study 1: Bedroom Makeover

I offered to help a friend redecorate his room and we're having fun playing it up as if it were a true client-stylist proposal, but believe me, I take this passion seriously. I put together a Design Process document and he wrote up significant life events and memories to give me a feel of what he's made up of.  In response I've been collecting imagery to create a couple of mood boards based on some core characteristics I saw in his story. I love this kind of dialogue and I'm learning more about my process and my friend at the same time.

Here are some of the initial concepts so far... can you guess what I was going for in each idea?
