Modern Cottage Mood Board

Recently there was a fun design challenge on  As you know, I am a fan of the Olioboard site (see a post on that here). I am a little bit addicted to making mood boards and I tend to get lost in time and pay no attention to the clock when I am making these boards. I try to steer clear of addictions like these but sometimes I just can’t help myself! I saw the contest for a “modern cottage getaway” on the Olioboard site. I was enticed  so I went ahead and entered! Little did I know that I entered on the 2nd to last day of the contest therefore not giving my board enough time to gather hardly any votes. Either way, it was fun. And I am a free member, so the access and items are a little limiting (if you choose, you can pay a small fee and get all kinds of amazing goodies to make mood boards… can you imagine the possibilities?!). Here is what I came up with:

My idea was for a modern cabin in the woods, near the lake but somewhere you could go to get away from it all. Relax, star gaze and share some wine with your family.

Some things I loved about this space:

THE SOFA- it’s the anchor for the entire room, large enough to be comfortable but not overwhelming the entire space. Grey is a neutral color and goes with anything.

BROWN ELEMENTS – I love the wood, and the cow hide. I think it keeps the space from looking cold… it’s inviting and creates layers.

THE DEER ART – This art was the first item I added to the mood board. I love these! I found a link for them here and I think I just might have to get  one! Love at first site, a deer wearing gym socks, so COOL!. Pairing them in the room for symmetrical appearance and on top of those mirrored chain-like drapes… so fun and I thought unique. I could see doing something similar in my house.

THE LIGHT – I would die to have this light (from here) in my house! I freaking LOVE it… need I say more, I think it’s the polish to the entire room.

LAMP, TELESCOPE, COFFEE TABLE – Love that lamp, orange and funky, and so me! That retro coffee table keeps things modern but with a warm feel and the telescope is for the warm nights of star gazing… soooo dreamy!

Check out the entire room and shop for all the items at my Olioboard link here.

Have a great weekend!
