Mood Board Monday...

Room Remix is hosting Mood Board Monday today...I should be working, but instead I am playing along. :)

The "rules" were pretty simple - pick one of two inspiration items, make a cute mood board and post about it. [Be sure to check out Room Remix for more information and the great designs others came up with!]

I choose the lime trellis fabric [upper left corner] as my inspiration item. From there, I found two coordinating fabrics - the pink trellis fabric and beach stripe fabric, both from Hancocks. And then I had about eight million ideas of fun rooms these fabrics should be used for...a summery outdoor room, a plant-filled sunroom, an ultra modern dining room.

But then I found this crazy amazing modern bright pink kids' chair and fell in love. So I finally decided on a modern preteen bedroom. For between the two chairs, I found this lime storage ottoman.

Across the room is the simple bed with bedding that just happened to coordinate perfectly. The bed would have modern tables on each side and two hot pink sparkle storage ottomans at the foot of the bed.

This totally cool preteen would also have this bright orange art deco table lamp and four-drawer dresser. The three fabrics would be used to make pillows for all over the bed and chairs, and maybe for an accent on curtains as well.

I didn't include any art on my mood board, but don't worry, I thought of that too. :) There would be blown up pictures of flowers [think the orange, lime, pink and teal in the fabrics] with giant white mats and big black frames.

Oh, and in case you don't click on the 42 links in this post, everything other than the fabrics was found at good 'ole Target.


  1. Very nice! I love the dresser and art deco table lamp.


  2. Very fun design, and I'm impressed that you found it all at one source! Very easy for someone if they want to duplicate it, and at a source that would be within the budget for most. Those fabrics are so bright and fresh. Thanks for joining the party!

  3. Cute! And if you hadn't said so, no one would know that everything came from Target. They're a great "secret source". Love your mix of fabrics and the hits of black and white.
