Whenever I’m thinking about a new design concept for a room, I always make an inspiration board. I go online and save images of pieces I like, and then I see how I can put them together in a room. I do this either by using Pinterest or collage tools like Polyvore. Once I have an initial concept, I can go back and see where my favorite items are from, or I can keep a look out for similar pieces at thrift stores and flea markets.
One of my new favorite decor websites is Chairish. It’s a site where you can buy and sell all kinds of furniture and decor. They have a huge selection of unique vintage and mid-century modern items, from sofas to barware. This makes it easy to go through and pick and piece your favorite items. Then you can mix and match and see what sticks. Here are a few room concepts that I’ve been playing around with.
Hollywood Regency Midcentury Style – This is my kind of style. Mixing clean modern lines with opulent pieces is my favorite. Pops of color with gold, always! I’d put a fur rug down under that amazing table and immediately invite my friends over for cocktails and fondue.
Entry Way Decor – Entry ways need to have welcoming style and function. It’s also the first impression you get when entering your home. Here you see I added good storage with this green cabinet, a nice lamp for light, a comfortable chair to sit and put shoes on, and a lucite coat hanger.
Colorful Eclectic Living Room – With a great rug and some cool tchotchkes to pull it together, this would make a super fun and comfortable room to hang out in. Mis-matching color is the perfect way to add a lot of style in a small room and on a small budget. This color palette has super retro vibes.
All of these items are available from Chairish. I want them allllll, especially those green chairs. See! Told you they have some good stuff. Hope this helps with your vision board needs like it has with mine!
