Thanks for your votes! Before and After Design Challenge | HOME DECOR

Hello readers and Happy Sunday!!

As you may already know, I am a current member of #Olioboard, a website where you can create mood board designs of interior spaces or anything really that inspires you in 2D and 3D. So, I have entered this month two design mood boards, one in  Olioboard’s monthly challenge and another one in Dormify College Style Design sponsored contest. The Before and After design challenge ends tomorrow [Monday] and I would greatly appreciate your loves (votes) on my board.  Here’s the link to my Olioboard profile page and below are the two boards.  Thanks so much!! xoxo

 Before and After design Challenge

My design style is “Traditional Modern” [Transitional] and though I love “white interiors” and neutral hues, I also love to use bold colors.

About this board: For the “Modern Traditionalist”

Decor Idea Board | Blue Hues

Hello readers!

Trending in colors from summer to fall and into next year, deep blue hues.  I love how the deep blue combo looks with contrasting crisp whites, very nautical perfect for a coastal modern interior space. I put together this decor board a while back and thought I’d share it with you today. Also, I am currently designing a 3D mood board at #Olioboard and will share that with you later this week.  How would you use this color in your home decorating?

Thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Mood Board Monday + OlioHop + Blog Hop

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I had a little weekend stay-cay at West Palm Beach.  Great time with family and hugh bunch of old friends.  Re-focused on what matters most. :) It was relaxing . . . but back to reality . . .

Today we are Olio hopping and talking about organization and de-cluttering!!

I you have read my post recently, you might remember that I have started creating mood boards or as I call them decor idea boards. The site I have been using is called Olioboard and I love how easy it is to create mood boards in 2D and 3D effects.  The look is really great because you can actually visualize how all the furniture pieces and other elements will look together.  A lot of Interior Designers as well as design enthusiasts are using this site to create their boards.  If you would like to to try it for yourself, it’s pretty easy, all you have to do is sign up, that’s it!  Hop on over to their site to get started, and while your there check out on the community tab to see amazing boards, also weekly contest.  Join the fun today!

Home Office Decorating Ideas

This board is more of a high-end  look, but the idea is there to play with. The design style I chose for this board is contemporary with mid-century modern.  The sparkle in the chandelier + lamp  enhances glam look, while the curves in the Z Gallerie “Eddie” wing chair give it a feminine touch. Do you like? Let me know how I can help you with your decorating needs.

Here are a some organizing tips to keep your home office

 TIDY! TIDY! TIDY! including me “muah”

There are so many options when it comes to basic storage solutions, and now more then ever chic and stylish ones. So let’s get started!

Organize areas by:

  1. Writing / computer desk:  Having adequate space can help you keep your space neat and tidy.  Not every home office is created equal.  Some require ample writing and drawing space.  A good average size desk to start with is 35 to 45 inches wide and 25 inches in depth, enough for computer and stationary.
  2. Storage boxes:  I like to use pretty boxes, this is where you can add a touch of your personality. Tip: To keep the room from looking visually cluttered, use no more than three colors throughout the room.
  3. Desk accessories:  This is where your daily stuff stays in order, incoming mail, notes, pencils + pens, etc.
  4. Bulletin Board:  Here is one of my fav, keep your most important must-do notes at eye level. If it’s starring at you, you probably won’t forget!
  5. Trash/Recycling bin: Daily mail can be daunting!  Sort out mail as it comes in, one less thing to think about when cleaning up at end of day.

I will be posting more about organizing throughout this week on my Facebook page, and Pinterest Board and Olioboard. Join in the convo!!
