I discovered Olioboard a few months ago watching The Nate Show and checked it out right away. I had always wondered how people were putting these pretty digital boards together. Well, I was immediately overwhelmed. I closed the screen and walked away. Sorry Olioboard. Apparently I can’t just put pretty boards together when I don’t have a purpose.
This week I found a purpose… Hale Blue! I love it and am determined to find space for it in our new home, so I ventured back into Olioboard, to create an inspiration board so my hubby and our build designer would understand my vision for the space. As luck would have it Benjamin Moore is having an olioboard contest! This only motivated me more.
So, here you have it – my inspiration for the eating area of our kitchen…
So what do you think? Not too bad for my first attempt right? We’re thinking white shaker cabinets for the kitchen, so the dark wall will give the space some much needed contrast. Bonus – my hubby gave it the thumbs up. Aaaaand so have complete strangers *happy dance*. If you like it, feel free to pop on over and throw me a vote You can totally tell it’s my first board – instead of giving it a fancy title, when it asked for “name”, I gave mine. (loser)
At the same time Blog Podium and EQ3 are holding a contest for their conference attendees (me). I wasn’t going to participate because I was feeling lame at mood boards and didn’t think it would be a great first impression for my fellow conference goers, feeling a little more confident after my kitchen board, I decided to throw my hat in. That, and I figured it would be a good way to put off doing the dishes.
Here’s the official words on the contest:
“Ticket holders of BlogPodium, Canada’s 1st and only conference series for design bloggers, were invited to create a mood board around their favorite EQ3 item. See all entries here and vote for your favorite by commenting on the pin! The entry with the most comments will receive the featured EQ3 item. “
And without further ado, here is my entry and you can vote by leaving a comment here if you feel so inclined. Don’t you just lvoe that teak table?
For the record, Olioboard is crazy fun!
