Over the past week and a half, seven different bloggers teamed up with Olioboard to create moodboards in the coastal cottage style. Now, we all know that I’m not your typical coastal cottage girl, but I really enjoyed adding some pretty elements to a moodboard at Olioboard’s free online moodboard generator. I shared with you my coastal cottage inspired home office last week.
It’s been a lot of fun to see how the other bloggers approached this challenge. If you haven’t already, take a look at how different everyone’s rooms designed in the same style turned out. It’s actually pretty neat! On Monday, we saw a fun coastal cottage studio/library put together by Lynda at Focal Point. I really love that she mixed some industrial elements in with more traditional cottage furniture, like a white slipcovered sofa.
On Wednesday, we saw the lovely living room put together by Rhoda at Southern Hospitality. I really like how she pulled the brighter reds and blues from the Shaw/HGTV Home rug (LOVE that rug!) and brought some nice colors to a design style that’s typically done in white and grays.
Next, we saw a very serene coastal cottage bedroom from Kristi at Addicted to Decorating. I particularly loved the natural elements she included to bring some texture to a room that could have been overrun with fabrics.
Rachel from Fresh Home Blog gave us a fresh take on a porch. The thought of her white porch with bright pops of color really makes me happy. I could definitely see myself sitting on that green porch swing and sipping a lemonade.
Yesterday, Sheilah from the Olioboard blog put together a gorgeous kitchen. This kitchen really feels so open and clean to me. The blues and yellows would be very calming when I’m burning something in the oven, don’t you think?
Which of these rooms would you most like in your home? What elements are your favorites and what did we totally forget to include?
