F I F T E E N | In the Homemaking Mood

Does anyone else think Monday came too soon? Or that September is flying by too quickly? Day fifteen of The Blog-tember Challenge was an easy breezy day for me as I have been in the habit of making moldboards regularly for the past several months. I love that Pinterest and Tumblr allow me to collect inspiring images and project ideas, but sometimes I want to take things a step further. If I'm working on a room or a show or even a series, collaging my thoughts and ideas can put things into a whole new perspective. And it often gives me the kick I need to get going!

Today's prompt: Make a mood board. Are you brainstorming a room re-do, or are you dreaming of glamping with gal pals? Share a collage of any kind! (Examples here and here.)


Perusing my Pinterest page, it appears that I pin home decor inspiration and tutorials more than anything else. Correction, I pin wedding ideas the most, but what girl on Pinterest doesn't? You can find my "Home Sweet Home" board HERE.

As you can see I have a particular obsession with bright, white natural light, open shelving, pretty florals and pops of color. The shabby-chic trend is still one of my favorites, and especially after becoming addicted to HGTV's Fixer Upper I love the mixture of clean lines, white tile, rustic elements, and basically anything/everything Joanna and Chip Gaines can come up with! 

While owning my own home is a long ways off, I am so enjoying settling in to my apartment here at OSU. I plan to stay in this unit for the full two years, which gives me plenty of time to change my mind whenever it suits my fancy, and to embrace the slow process of making a home. Part of me wants to have all the final details in place by the end of the month, but neither my wallet nor my schedule will allow it. One day and one vignette at a time.

What's on your mind or setting the mood for you these days? I can't wait to see your collages!
