The arched light in the mood board above came about because I miss the floor lamp we once had next to the couch. I wanted to see how it might look and possibly sway my husband. I’ve been mentioning one for the living room for over two years since we have a lack of artificial light at night in the living room and limited side table space to support a lamp. And we paid extra to have an outlet put in the ground under the couch. I’m ready to put it to use.
Here is what it looked like when we had a floor lamp next to the couch.
Now it lives in the living room.
Who knows, it might even make a return to the bedroom again someday.
has been my go to for creating mood boards. Whenever I want to show my husband what I envision for our home (so I can woo him with my creativity), I throw together a mood board on Polyvore. I quick pick furniture that somewhat resembles our own and try not to spend too much time doing so. Occasionally, I add pieces to Polyvore’s home decor database as well.
I noticed recently, while fiddling with a mood board of our living room to see various curtain options, that Polyvore was having a contest that included a $500 Anthropologie gift card. Say no more. Just for kicks, I put together a mood board based on my own dining room as the jumping off point. It was great fun! For me, playing with home goods on Polyvore is like paper dolls come to life with interior pieces. I included pieces I would love to host a get together with around the table.
Here are photos of our dining room:
