Have you heard about the fabulousness that is Olioboard?? I just discovered it a few weeks ago, and I am a tad bit obsessed. If you haven't tried it out, you have to ASAP! You will become obsessed just like me, but I swear you will be thankful. On the site, you can make mood boards for home decor. I like to make a plan for a space before I begin decorating it, so this is a great way to visualize my ideas.

Since we are moving this summer, I have been obsessing over how I want to decorate our new apartment. I am SO excited to actually have more than one room, so I have had so much fun making mood boards for each one.

 Here are a couple of different boards I made for the HUGE entryway we will have. It is pretty much a whole separate room, so I would love to paint grey/white stripes on the wall and have really fun and colorful accessories since it is the first room you see as you walk in the door. It also needs to be really functional as well, so I would love to find a pretty umbrella stand and coat rack and maybe some baskets for shoes, etc.

This is a board I made for the living room. I've since changed my mind on a few things, but I still want the same feel for the room. I absolutely love this color palette and I think my two green chairs are going to look fabulous in the space. I have already purchases some amazing art for behind the couch, but I would love to paint an abstract piece like this one for somewhere else in the apartment.

And last but not least, my favorite. I have been dreaming of a bedroom like this for years, and I am SO thrilled that I actually get to have it soon! I love the soothing, cool aqua color and love how calming the room will look. We already have most of everything that will go in this room, but I am excited to DIY some drapes and throw pillows with my new sewing machine!

Make sure you check out Olioboard, and have fun!
