I am back blogging after some time off including a really nice trip to London! But I did not stop pinning, because I just love it. Especially since I have the pinterest app on my iPhone, not a day goes by that I do not pin something.
Lately I have been pinning many interiors that show natural materials, shapes and colors (white, beige, brown). Colors and materials that really warm-up a room.
I really love the idea of wooden boxes for storage of books or tableware. You can put them anywhere and collect as many as you want. These shelves on the right by Muuto are just perfect and come in different shapes, colors and materials.
As you may have read in a previous blog post, we enrolled in an online blogging course by Holly Becker from decor8 called Blogging your Way Bootcamp. One of the assignments she gave us was to create a mood board showing how you imagine your ultimate blog to look like. Mood boards can be digital or handmade. I chose to make ours by hand, using pictures from my favorite interior design magazines, wall paper in several colors, tape, stickers and cards. The bird card is by Dutch company Zusss, I love its simplicity and the color. I picked a cool color palette, with shades of blue and grey and touches of soft pink and green. We also included some pictures of tiles in the same color palette since we would like to have tiles in the background of our blog, or use tiles, blocks or squares in our logo/blog name. This exercise really helped us to think about how we want our blog to look and feel, but above all it was just a lot of fun to do and I would highly recommend it to all bloggers who just started blogging and are working on their blog design.
On pinterest I collected some of my favorite mood boards created by fellow Blogging Your Way students. Follow us if you like!
