I am honored to be participating once again in Remodelholic’s mood board blog hop party! If you are visiting from Cassity’s place, welcome to Home Stories A to Z!
The basic premise of this party is just to show off elements we’d love to have in a gorgeous living room. Cassity encouraged us to work from an inspiration image—a shoe, outdoor scene, actual living room, etc.—and go from there. However, I like to create as I go and make it up as I go along. I am a firm believer in finding inspiration from images and objects when decorating, but with Pinterest, blogs, and magazines as some of my best “friends” I have so many images lodged in my brain it’s impossible to pick just one as the inspiration behind the design. So I just added items to my room design as they caught my eye.
Want to see the final product? Of course you do!
I think my design looks very Ballards-esque although that’s not intentionally what I was going for. I wanted a living room that looked classy, neutral, warm, cozy, worn, nature-inspired, and soothing. Below is a screenshot of all of the different items I used to create my living room.
What I love about this look is that although it is lacking in color, it does not read cold or stark. In fact to me it says, “Welcome friend! Grab a warm drink, get comfy, and tell me everything.” Do your rooms talk to you too? 😉
I hope you enjoyed my design. Be sure to click on the #3 below to visit The Handmade Home next and see her spectacular living room creation!
