The Next Mood Board Monday: Pretty Pictures

Hi! I'm really late posting another Mood Board Monday challenge - sorry! I kinda fell off the wagon during the summer and then just couldn't get my act together so far this fall. But are you guys up to trying again?

Let's have the actual party on Monday, November 22nd...that way we can get it in before all the crazy holiday madness starts. (Still, this is the Monday of Thanksgiving week, hope that doesn't stress anybody out!)

I'd like to try something different again this time. Instead of being inspired by a piece of furniture or accessory, let's use photographs as our jumping off point! I love detail shots and vignettes of home decor, so while surfing some websites of photographers who shoot interiors and still lifes, I came across these 3 images that caught my eye.

Your job is to design a room based on one of these photographs. Maybe its the color palette of the photo that inspires you, or one of its patterns. Maybe you create a room that embodies the feeling you get when you look at that picture. Or maybe you step back and put together a room that this photo could have been taken in. Whatever it is, I'm hoping one of these moments captured on camera captures your imagination:)

Thoughts? Questions? For anyone unfamiliar with the concept of the Mood Board Monday McLinky party, here's the general idea:

1. This is not a mood board competition for designers (although designers are more than welcome to participate). This is a fun way to share all of the creativity out there and showcase how we can all start from one inspiration point and end up with a variety of ideas.
2. To be a participant, you need to create a complete mood board for a room based on one of the three inspiration photos shown here.
3. On Mood Board Monday party day (Monday, November 22nd in this case), come back here to link up to the party. You will need to include your sources in your post and give a brief description of the room and how you were inspired by the photo.

Please spread the word...the more bloggers, the more creativity and beautiful rooms!! See you back here in a couple of weeks. Thanks, everyone!


  1. Okay, this is my first attempt at a MOOD Board. Just learned some tricks on my Mac that will test my skill. Great inspiration by the way.

  2. Great inspiration! I will try my hands at your moodboard challenge, it looks so fun!
