OlioBoard Obsessed

I recently came across the most amazing website known to man.. or should I say women. It’s called OlioBoard and I am beyond obsessed. I spent approx 3 hours playing around with the site & designing my ideal home office!

Here’s the gist of how it works; You create your own digital mood/inspiration boards on their site & save them to your profile. A lot of interior designers use this site + regular people who want to design their own space.

 It’s free to join. They do have a pro version that enables you to choose wall colors, add text & use the budget feature, which is $8.99 a month.

All the images you select on the site are fully available for purchase and they list the product’s specifications & prices!! Amazing! You can even upload your own inspiration photos from your computer or photos of your current furniture.

I put this board together for my ideal home office. What do you think?

It really helps you envision the room you are trying to create.. instead of buying items at stores only to find out that they don’t match your current decor – talk about a major time saver.

Operation Glam Chic

Aqua, gold, yellow oh my! For the past couple of weeks I have been completely infatuated with this color combo. Gold has always been an all time favorite for me. Aqua looks phenomenal with gold so it’s the perfect marriage. Add yellow to that  mix – you have perfection. I seriously can’t get enough.

I mean look at this gorgeousness!!!

Paint is one of the most inexpensive and easy ways to pretty up a room. I soon plan to start our living room re-vamp. I just need to find the time to go out hunting for the accessories and oh ya, a new couch! We have a lot to do. I want the room to feel romantic and feminine .. with some glamor of course. For the couch I’m thinking ivory linen fabric, tufted backing or bronze nail head trim. Something along these lines:

I’m pretty sure we will end up getting the couch custom made. I can’t find exactly what I want, for the price we want anywhere.

Okay enough with the couches and back to operation glam chic! I created this inspiration board to give me some direction. I’m extremely visual when it comes to styling things together, so this was very helpful.

What do you think? Yes I know, I like lots of color. Sorry I should have warned you! Are you planning on fixing up a room in your house? What is your favorite color combination?

I have to say I don’t recommend using bright colors like these if you are planning to sell your house anytime soon. Stick to neutrals. For more tips on selling your house click here. Looking to buy? Here’s a Buyer’s Checklist.

Happy Friday!
