My Living Room Mood Board

My mom is brave. She let me decorate my first room by myself at the age of 11. I loved it! It looked like an Easter egg threw up all over it. My walls where mint green, the ceiling was light blue and my built in shelving was light blue and the back of the shelves were light purple. My bed was a white four poster bed. I was so proud of myself, but when I look back at the pictures I can't help but laugh at how horrible it looked. But I loved every minute on if it, from picking out the bedding to the paint colors. This is where it started, from then on when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up I said an interior designer.

Ok lets get this mood board started! The color palette is gray, chocolate brown, teal, and burnt orange. I would paint the walls in a toupeish-gray (yes, that is a word) like  Behr "Belvedere Cream". 

I like making my money go as far as possible so the furniture is relatively cheap, the couch is from Big Lots, the TV stand is from Walmart, and that wonderful chair that my husband will never let me have is from Pier 1. ( He says it is floweredy, yes that is a word too.)

The rug is either from Lowe's or Home Depot, the curtains are drop cloth curtains that I have added a grommet top to. For the pillows I like to mix patterns that you wouldn't normal pick to go together these are from Pier 1. The lamp I picked out is from Walmart too. Pottery Barn has one that looks almost identical but for 3 times the price.

If you are interested in getting a custom mood board for FREE send me an email I will be giving 10 away!
