Hi friends!! Today I am sharing my very first Olioboard! For those of you not familiar, Olioboard is a website that allows you to put together mood boards as inspiration. I’ve been working with an interior designer (who’s fabulous I might add) and she suggested that I familiarize myself with the website. It provides furniture, lighting, accessories and more from popular retailers or you can save and upload your own items. Many people position the objects to actually look like a room but let’s be honest, I’m not that patient. For my first go-round I created a home study.
I chose my color palette first: warm grays. The lighter grey background is the wall color for the room. It is Sherwin Williams Mindful Gray (a personal favorite of mine). The darker grey is Sherwin Williams Dovetail, and that’s what any built-in would be painted.
I love how the wood floors contrast with the grey colors. I chose a great, Jute rug from Restoration Hardware. Jute rugs can be found anywhere with how popular they are right now.
I centered the room around the desk. I picked it out first and wanted the rest of the room to compliment it. I found it at Restoration Hardware as well. After the desk, I chose the fabulous chandelier. I love the metal contrast with the wooden desk. The chandelier is also from RH (surprise, surprise).
The linen, tufted chair would go in the corner of the room. It is from Overstock and a deal! $299 for that baby. I found both the console table and gold, sunburst mirror on Olioboard’s inventory list. Not sure where those exact pieces can be found, but I know there are close replicas out there!
I added the black and white prints behind the desk for a clean and polished look. The accessories can of course be changed a bit, but I thought the brass table lamp and end table were nice finishing touches. Lastly, the orchid and fiddle fig tree add great color to the room.
What do you think?? I was kind of blindly designing here, but I am happy with it. There will definitely be more Olioboards to come!
