I hope you enjoyed seeing all the mood boards from the Olioboard Coastal Cottage Challenge last week. I’m going to do a recap post here, just in case you missed a few of them. It was fun to see everyone’s take on this fun design style that everyone seems to be crazy about these days.
We all did different colors and textures in our rooms, but overall the vibe of coastal cottage came through loud and clear. You can see that aqua blue was the popular color of choice on all of our boards in some form or fashion. Lynda from Focal Point started Day 1 with her beachy vibe Library space. With lots of various coastal inspired items to bring varied textures to this mood board, you can see check out her blog for all the details.
Next on Tuesday, Lindsay brought us a coastal cottage office space, with lots of creamy white and aqua. Those aquas have a way of bringing that sea-inspired feel into a room when it comes to coastal cottage decorating.
Wednesday was my day with my coastal inspired living room, with dark ebony floors, soft textured furnishings and that yummy rug from Shaw Floors as my inspiration piece. Pops of coral red brought this room to life!
On Thursday, Kristi with Addicted to Decorating brought us a gorgeous bedroom all inspired by greens, blues and browns, those hot colors that everyone is loving right now.
Friday’s pick was What’s Up Whimsy’s pretty dining room with lots of green accents, which can also feel coastal cottage. Greens and blues are natural choices for a coastal room.
The second Monday coastal cottage room was brought to us by Fresh Home Picks, with her cottage inspired porch. How inviting is this space with those Adirondack chairs and that pretty red table. The sunny yellow boots and pillows add some additional pop to the space too.And our last day of the Olioboard design challenge brought us Olioboard’s own Sheilah, who designed this stylin’ mood board of a coastal cottage kitchen, using green, aqua, yellow, and cream, all soothing and serene colors that evoke lots of happy in this kitchen.
So, that’s our wrap-up of using Olioboards and how fun it is to create your own design using this unique online tool. If you haven’t tried it yet, I’d highly recommend putting your design sense to the test and see how many ways you can come up with a fun design using the thousands of pictures that can be placed on a mood board.
It’s fun and easy, give it a try yourself!
