One of my favorite bloggers is Nicole from Making it Lovely. A few weeks back she did a post on decorator Holly Becker. Holly's main idea is that you should create a mood board to guide your decorating process. Well, I'm not really redecorating, or even decorating, anything at this point. But I thought it would be fun to make a mood board just of colors and ideas. I am mostly in the collection phase of decorating, but I want to know that the things I collect will have long-term use in my someday house.
Unlike Holly's, my mood board didn't have any fabric or anything on it. Just paper products I've collected that represent ideas I like. Followed by some photos I've pinned (via Pinterest) with inspiration on how to actually incorporate these ideas into a home.
1. Black and White: I really love black and white - it's boldness, it's simplicity. I think it is sophisticated and pretty and a good background because you can easily change what's on top. And I really love black and white photography and it's timelessness.

|Dream kitchen. For sure. I think if I had this kitchen I wouldn't need any other part |
of the house. I'd just curl up on that counter with a pillow at bedtime. Via.

|Plain and simple. Yet so pretty. Via.|
|Well-organized, sleek bookshelves are my fave.|
6. Form and function. I absolutely love two-in-one space saving solutions. I don't actually want a big house (square footage-wise). I want a simple house with lots of functionality. And light. And no clutter.
