First, a little deep thought by me. Isn't it fun to see how one person views something compared to another? That is what makes us as humans unique - we all have a different thought process and a way of looking at things. Pretty frickin' awesome if you ask me - especially when it comes to design.
Anyway, today is Mood Board Monday and I'll be linking up this post over at Pewter & Sage. The inspiration behind this Mood Board Monday challenge was wallpaper, and you've seen my thoughts on wallpaper. I'm a changed woman - I'm now a wallpaper believer (in small doses as you'll see below). Here is the wallpaper I chose to use for my mood board:
Layla Grace; Leafy scroll
I thought this paper was so pretty and feminine. I knew fairly quickly that I wanted to use this in a young girl's room. I would envision this being a tween or young teen room. I've also been wanting to use this piece of art in a room as well - it not only has the blue from my wallpaper inspiration but so many other pretty colors to draw from.

So with my inspiration wallpaper together with this piece of art, below is my vision of a young girl's room...I chose to utilize the wallpaper as a headboard. I'd frame out the wallpaper so that it had a nice clean look.
I wanted the room to be a fun place for friends to hang out but also a room that is functional with lots of storage space and places to work/study. I envisioned a cozy window seating area with pretty pillows and cushions. The console can double as a desk or a getting ready area for hair/make-up. The large woven storage bins could sit at the end of the bed but could also move around the room as needed. Overall, I wanted the room to be colorful, pretty and sophisticated for a young girl to enjoy.
