Decor mood boards have been popular for a while, but thanks to the creative folks at Olioboard, there's now an easy easy to make mood boards with your favorite home decor products on the web! Browse products by brand (including more than 14,000 Lamps Plus products) and drag-and-drop them to create 2-D or 3-D design boards that help you visualise how furniture, lighting, and accessories will look in your home.
One great feature of Olioboard that I love is the ability to upload your own images. You could take a photo of your room, upload it, and virtually arrange everything in the space before lifting a finger. I imagine this will save much heavy furniture lifting, and unnecessary holes pounded in the walls!
Today we're taking part in an "Oliohop" about fashion and decor, and I've created the mood board above after being inspired by this fantastic fashion photo. I love the simple color palette of nude and white, along with mixed metallic finishes and simple, angular shapes.
Using Olioboard, I browsed their product selction to find pieces that had a similar look and feel to the inspiration outfit. Very quickly, I had pulled together a room design that I know would be successful if implemented in real life.
There are 9 other blogs taking part in today's Oliohop: Apartment 34; Material Girls; Selma Hammer; Life in a Venti Cup; Euro Style Lighting; Embrace Your Inner Snob; Design Magnifique; Focal Point; and Pocket Full of Colors. Visit Lamps Plus on Olioboard to find out how to get the look above, and made sure to "hop" on over to each of the blogs above to be inspired by their fashion + decor mood boards!
Hi. I’m Lesley. I’m a collage artist and interior stylist. Common advice tells me to pick one discipline and focus on it – but I’ve never been known for being common. I make beautiful things and create beautiful spaces, because surrounding yourself with beauty and inspiration just makes life better. Your home and the things in it should feel effortlessly mixed and matched, with just a little bit of weird thrown in. The unexpected keeps life interesting.
My design talents have been showcased as a junior designer at Kimberley Seldon Design Group (Toronto); project manager at Studio La Beauté (Toronto); showroom manager at Reid & Lyons Designer Trimmings (Toronto); freelance designer at Burnham Design (Los Angeles); and interior design stylist at Lamps Plus and 55 Downing Street (Los Angeles).
Find me on my blog, and follow me on Google+.

Love the sophisticated color palette you decided to go with... great fashion + decor combination!!!
Love the classic look and feel of this space. Very serene.
Lesley, Your white and cream design combination is stunning. I am a huge fan of Olioboard and competed in the recent Lamps Plus sponsored contest. Finding items to put in my design from Lamps Plus was easy.
Lesley of Lamps Plus,
On behalf of the Olioboard team of which I am a part, thanks for participating in our monthly #OlioHop on our theme this time of Fashion and Decor! We appreciate your support of your fellow OlioHop bloggers and our community members who use Lamps Plus' products in their Olioboard creations on our site!
Personally speaking, the pendant fixture you've used in your Olioboard creation would be perfection for my own bedroom which is all done in the creamy ivory and taupes you've used. To me, nothing makes as much difference in a bedroom as the right lighting ( on a dimmer! )...mixed in with a few beautiful candles and fresh flowers ~
We've created a FB portfolio album of all of the beautiful Olioboard Fashion and Decor creations and invite you and your readers over to our FB Page to take a look at http://facebook.com/olioboard!
Thanks again, Lesley and Lamps Plus!
Leslie (@tkpleslie) and the Olioboard Team!
Charisse - glad to hear that you participated in our contest! There were some absolutely fantastic entries.
Leslie - thanks for including Lamps Plus in this #Oliohop! It's been a pleasure creating this Olioboard (and also "hopping" to all the other blogs to see their creations!).
Stopping by to check out the previous OlioHop - great job! Love that sunburst mirror and (of course!) the light!
