Design Online!

I'll admit it.  I'm addicted to, obsessed with, and mildly in love with this new site I found.  I've always wanted to be able to make mood and inspiration boards online, or some type of collage presentation, and I finally found it.  I came across this great website that, after you make a quick (with no strings attached) account, you can create as many mood boards as you want!  The options are endless.  You choose the style and pick out the furniture and accessories to put in your "room".  I've had so much fun creating rooms for, well, no one in particular.  {Confession: sometimes I'll make up clients who "need" certain things in their room, just to make the process more fun!}  The website is called Olioboard.  And it's awesome.  If you like design, playing around with color, furniture, and accessories, you will love this website.  Careful though, you may spend lots of time on it now, like me (:

Here's one of my creations:
I even got to put the little pillows on the couch!

I chose to go for some traditional furniture, paired with some modern pieces and an organic wallpaper for one wall to achieve this sweet, girlie, and whimsical look.  The main color is the Color of the Year, coined by Pantone called Huneysuckle, said to give any room the sense of confidence and joy.  I thought the small burst of yellow gave the room energy, while complimenting and balancing the darker TV credenza nicely.

The possibilities are are endless!  Go make an account and have some fun (:

Love and Color,
