Today, I’m bringing back Mood Board Monday!
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a mood board post but boy have I been saving up for a good one.
Our main level is evolving and getting us one step closer to completion (well as complete as any space ever gets). With our fireplace room complete and our entryway 95% done I am looking forward to creating a dreamy space in our formal living room. But, let’s face it…there is nothing formal about me or my family. We are a hockey playing, movie-quoting, pizza eating family that truly lives in our home. Sure, I like allll the fancy things. But, I’m realistic about how our spaces will be used. Well…most of the time. I did just have a quarter of my house’s walls painted white which I’m sure will be a magnet for grubby little paws. Oops!
So, today instead of creating a mood board that’s practical I decided to get a little crazy and create a space that exists in all of my living room dreams. That’s a thing right? Living room dreams? No prince charming riding in on a white horse for me. Just talk to me in rich silk curtains, built in bookcases, and deliciously pink rugs.
Now, I’ve never had a formal living room before this house. Our last living room was about 300 square feet and was also the main space you saw when entering the house.
I also further expanded on the mood board, adding in more decorative elements in this version of the space.

Awesome. So beautiful. I like your idea. Pink and blue together. It makes your living room just a bit romantic, feminine, had little hope, fresh. I like it very much.
The space with the neutral color wall and the layered rugs looks comfortable . Great jobs. You give me inspiration to make a new DIY project. Thanks for your sharing.
