i’m a very visual person, so when i start decorating any room in the house, i always create a mood board (a technique i picked up from yhl). before i started using mood boards, i used to send all these different e-mails to myself from each store’s website so that i could remember items that i liked. but, since this was a little confusing and hard to keep organized before, i hate to think of what a mess it would be now on baby-limited sleep. i would also (and still do) create shopping lists at each of the home décor store sites that i frequent.
if a brick and mortar store exists for whatever i have chosen, i usually end up picking it up in person. but, i actually really hate shopping and hate crowds even more, so online browsing definitely beats hoofing it around town to a million different stores in my free time.
for the mood boards, i use powerpoint to copy and paste pictures of the items. since i do about 99% of my home décor window shopping online, i also embed a link back to whatever websites that i found them on so that i can easily keep track of price changes and availability.
without further ado, here's the guest room mood board:
