Sara's Mood Board

First of all, this is my 100th post!!! I can't believe it. Thank you for taking the time to read, comment and share my blog! I appreciate you all! My new nav bar is up; what do you think? I also have my first giveaway coming up soon and our wedding is being featured next week! Stay tuned :)

A little over a month ago I signed up for the Bigs and Littles Blogging Network. I got partnered with Sara @ You and Me are We. I have learned so much from her and wanted to repay her for her help. So today I am sharing with you the mood board I created for her living space!

I asked Sara for some info and pictures of her current space and checked out her Pinterest so that I could create a space she would LOVE!

Use of the space:
  • "We use the space to spend time together watching movies, TV, and playing games. We also do all of our entertaining in our living room except when it's nice out and we can move to our patio outside."
Elements to incorporate:

  • Slipcover for current sofa (preferably grey)
  • Accessories/art
  • some fun textures (pillows and window treatments)
  • blanket for cuddling :)
  • storage for games
  • love their current furniture;espresso color (tables and shelves)
  • transitional
  • chic
  • soothing colors
Here are some inspiration pictures from Sara's Pinterest:


Curtains: Target Threshold Jacquard Ikat Window Panels
Slipcover: Kohl's Sure Fit Stretch Pin-Striped Slipcover
Pillows: 1) Target Room Essentials Solid Textured Toss Pillow in Sea Going
              2) Target Threshold Lattice Toss Pillow in Beige
              3) Target Nate Berkus Gold Mesh and Tweed Pillow
Throw Blanket: Target Threshold Portobello Ruffle Throw in Green
Mirror: Kohl's Elegant Home Fashions Netheland Wall Mirror
Picture Frame: Kohl's Fetco Portage 6-Opening Matted Collage Frame
Candle Holders: Urban Outfitters Punched Metal Candle Holders
Table Lamps: Target Glass Ball Lamp with White Silk Shade
Vase: Anthropologie Carved Gourd Vase in Turquoise
Basket: Target Home Waste Basket in White
Ottoman: Target Accent Furniture Nailhead Storage Ottoman in Grey
Color Inspiration: Design Seeds
