On one of my favorite websites, Young House Love, a young married couple creates "mood boards" with design inspiration for clients who actually pay them for their ideas! John and Sherry, the geniuses behind Young House Love, do not have degrees in interior design...just a healthy passion for it! They use Adobe Photoshop to create custom mood boards for their clients and their website. My brain is literally bursting with decorating ideas...so many that my poor little house can't handle it all, nor can my budget! I don't have Photoshop, but just for fun, I think I will create mood boards when the mood strikes...like tonight when insomnia hits! My last post on Dolan Geiman's artwork inspired me to make an Americana inspired mood board. The idea of a mood board is that you look at all the pictures and imagine them all working together in one room. For this particular mood board I want you to imagine a room with wood or laminate flooring and painted walls. Happy Mood Boarding! (I will number the pictures, then tell you where everything came from at the end).

Wow, that was fun! I hope this inspired you in some way! Do you have any suggestions for mood boards? Let me know in the comments. Who knows? I could be the next "John and Sherry", helping people come up with ideas.
