Exciting News: Mood Board Service!

I am excited to announce that I will now be offering a Mood Board Service! This is something that I have been wanting to do for a long time, and I am happy that now I am able to do it. 

There are a lot of talented mood board creators in the blogosphere, and I admire their work. However, what I envision is a little different. Instead of creating custom mood boards with just buying sources, I construct mood boards with DIY options, as well. This gives you the opportunity to DIY projects, keep costs down, recycle, and really make the room personal and your own! However, if time is a constraint, you always have the option to purchase a similar item.

I am flexible in fitting your needs. Whether you need paint color suggestions, accessory help, you have an ugly lamp that needs a revamp, or an entire room that needs inspiration, I would love to help. I would be there every step of the way for your room design, offering help and problem-solving on DIYs and how-tos, I would also offer eBay and Craigslist personal shopping to help you find the perfect pieces for your room. 

Here is a sample mood board that is the inspiration for Dmitri & Damon's shared nursery/playroom. It is centered around what I need and have for the room, thus an actual mood board would have different features:


Buy: CB2 Abacus - $149
DIY: Over-sized Abacus Tutorial (paint with bright colors inspired by CB2)

Patterns Revealed Pillow
Buy: Anthropologie Pillow - $78
DIY: Fabric Strip Pillow Tutorial (consider adding fringe or orange piping)

Zinc Letters
Buy: Anthropologie Oversized Zinc Letters - $98

DIY: Zinc Letters Tutorial

Bed: Minnen Bed from Ikea
Red Hook: Anthropologie Five Alarm Hook
Hot Air Balloon Print: Etsy Hot Air Balloon Art
Vases: Crate and Barrel Vase
Curtains: UO Tree of Life Curtains
Fabric: Joel Dewberry Aviary Collection 
Hot Air Balloon: Amazon Hot Air Balloon (consider searching eBay)
