Blog link-up- Mood board Monday Party: Wallpaper

Today, when I was visiting Lisa's blog at A Room With A View, something caught my eye. She was linking up her mood board to a linky party at Sarah's blog, Pewter & Sage. I have seen many DIY project or room link-up but seldom came across a mood board link-up. Naturally, I got curious and decided to pay a visit. I thought it might be fun to check out a new linky party and a new blog. It turned out that Sarah's Monday's inspiration is wallpaper, and she had a joint collaboration between herself at Pewter & Sage and Cathy at Room Rx. Together, they picked out four beautiful patterned wallpapers from Layla Grayce. To those who are interested, they can select a favorite wallpaper among the four and create a room around it. Below are the four choices of wallpapers:

Can you guess which one is my favorite wallpaper out of the four? I am immediately drawn to the first one because I like the beautiful color combination. It's unique and striking. I designed this mood board using a program named MyDeco. This time (my third time creating a mood board), I decided to source every item on my own instead of depending on what is available on the website. Since I have not designed a home office before, this is what I came up with: 

A Stylish And Feminine Home Office


Office desk: Jett Desk

Message  board: Burlap Message Board

Fabric samples: Tangier Frame Print

Fresh flower: Telefloras Beauty Secret

This mood board was quite time-consuming (as expected) but I really enjoyed the process of putting everything together. What are your thoughts? Can you visualize this home office? You can check out other mood boards here

Mood board- Classic and chic master bedroom!

Today, I was playing with Olioboard and decided to create a classic master bedroom with a modern twist. I am not really familiar with this program so I just pick whatever was in there. I do not have any specific color palette or furniture pieces in mind, I just went with what caught my eye. And here is what I came up with.

Can you visualize this whole room with white walls and green trellis wallpaper as the focal wall behind the bed? What are your thoughts? Let me know what you think!
