Mood Board Monday: August Design Collaboration - Lavender Hues

Hello!  This month I participated in a design collaboration with some lovely and talented design ladies.  I chose a picture as inspiration and we each created a mood board using the color palette from the photo.  I'm amazed at how different and unique the boards are from each other.  If you didn't know about the photo, you may not have guessed we were all working with the same inspiration!

Here's the photo that I chose:

I love the purple and green together, but purple is a color that I seldom decorate with.  I chose this picture for that very reason to give myself the challenge of doing something different than I normally do.  I started creating a bathroom design, but it quickly morphed into a girl's nursery design.  I had some fun with this challenge 1) ignoring the practical and focusing on the pretty and 2) completely ignoring any sort of budget.  I'm sure you could definitely create this room for less, but I included some higher end pieces that I love.

I think the room is almost glamourous enough that you could take out the crib and transform the space into a dressing or sitting room.  What do you think?

Here are the great designs the other ladies came up with:

The soothing colors in this month's inspiration picture immediately had me thinking of a spa bathroom. I would paint the walls a soft blue, add lavender and sage touches in the art and bath linens, and bring in some wood and stone to play off all the muted tones. And now I'm obsessed with that free standing tub... Stop by my blog for a source list.

I, of course, still have baby on my mind {it's a little all encompassing don't ya think?} and couldn't help but see a beautiful chic nursery when i saw lavender hues. maybe it was wistful thinking since i'm completely in boy mode right now. I'll always be drawn to little girl things! Come see sources and more over at

{Lizzie from Living Pretty}

I've been itching to use this velvet sofa in a design board since I saw it in the new Ikea catalog, so this month I decided to do a very renter-friendly living room - white walls with lavender accents and, of course, a big splash of emerald green. Stop by my blog for more details and a complete source list.
