MOOD BOARD: MALIBU-INSPIRED LIVING ROOM

I love putting together random mood boards as the mood strikes (pun totally intended). It’s fun to play around with styles you normally wouldn’t go with, be able to pull off in your own house or would love to have in your dream house someday. I haven’t put together a random board in almost a year. So, needless to say, it’s high time I post another one. This particular one was inspired by two things… The first: Malibu. In general,…

MOOD BOARD: FRESH + GIRLY

It’s been a while since I’ve put together a random mood board. Last time around, I put together a tween boy’s room (inspired by the 12-year-old version of my little brother).

Not white and not something we want to rip out.Β We debated spraying the cabinets (which have goregous moulding at the top and the…

MOOD BOARD: SCHOOLHOUSE CHIC

For this week’s mood board, I wanted to do something a little different than past mood boards and go with an overall masculine vibe. It’s not too masculine though – add some flowers and a tray of “pretty things” and you’ve got a pretty good gender-balanced room. That aim, along with all of the back-to-school ads on TV, caused me to end up going with “masculine schoolhouse chic”. So, after some fun online window-shopping and asking Greg “Is this too…
