Mood Board Monday - September 26th

There are so many fun projects going on right now with many of my fellow blog buddies (another post on all of this exciting stuff to come soon), but this one project in particular was really fun and something that anyone can participate in so I figured I'd spread the word...we're good like that in blogland, aren't we?

If you are interested in creating a mood board based on a given inspiration, then set your calendars, set your smart phone reminders, write down this date...September 26th is the big date to link up your mood boards.

Here's the scoop...Cathy from Room RX and Sarah from Pewter + Sage are coordinating Mood Board Monday which will take place on Monday, September 26th. I love this idea!

Sarah did a great guest post at Room RX which you can read here that gives more details on MBM, but here it is in a nutshell...

Sarah (and Cathy) presented an inspiration piece, and for this MBM they chose wallpaper! (**Sidenote: Those of you who know me personally (like in real life) know of my wallpaper woes when we bought our house, so I'm still divided on the topic BUT there are some really great wallpapers out there right now and they can really create quite the statement and draw attention to an area of a space that would otherwise look a little lonely. I know I said I would never ever ever use wallpaper in my home but I might just try it one day)  Here are the wallpapers that Sarah and Cathy presented:

Amy Butler Lacework Sunset by Layla Grace

Spherica Parchment Paper from Layla Grace

Amy Butler Passion Lily Field from Layla Grace

Leafy Scroll Sky Paper from Layla Grace

So you need to choose one of these and base your mood board around it.  Sounds like fun, doesn't it? I'm using this as a challenge for myself to start creating more mood boards and this is the extra kick that I needed to get going. It'll be fun to see what others do with their rooms. 

Anyway, check it out and give it a try if you're interested.

Any guesses which paper I might choose as inspiration? Which one would you choose and what type of room would you create? I love the endless possibilities there are to dream up.


  1. I LOVE this idea! I will definitely try it. I think I might try wallpaper option #1, because I don't usually use those colors but love them! Maybe a living room, with that paper on one wall. Great idea! Thanks for sharing. My guess is you might use paper #3- it reminds me of your blog color!

  2. I hate hate hate hate wallpaper...did I mention I hate it? Seriously, I don't know think/I would want to buy another house that was wallpapered. I do like the newer ones but honestly I would possibly try a stencil before I resort to one.

  3. Love this idea. Looks like I'll be busy this weekend creating moodboards :)

  4. Aw, Holly! You are such a doll!! Seriously, thank you so much for doing this! I'm so excited that you are excited:) I was worried that since it had been so long no one would want to participate anymore...and then I would have to cry or something!!

    Lol at you hating wallpaper though!!! (We only had one border in the whole house that I had to take down so I don't hate it as much as you.) Blame Cathy for that bit! But, the cool thing is that you don't have to use it on the could line a bookshelf with it, frame it, modge podge it to the top of a dresser, whatever:)

    Oh wow, have such a great time at your daughter's birthday party this weekend! (And a good time on your trip.) I didn't realize that they were so close in age! Hasn't this year flown by? I'm kinda sad about it:(

  5. Thanks for the shout out Holly!!! I hope you change your mind about wallpaper after this! Have fun with your mood board, can't wait to see what you come up with!
