Bold Flora Living Room Accents

I'm not an interior designer by any stretch of the imagination. I have an eye for color, but I have the absolute worst time picking a theme or color pallet and sticking with it. I get very distracted, especially if something shiny catches my eye!

I decided that this time around I would create a mood board for my living room area. I also knew that I was sticking with our blue upholstery and some burgundy and gold curtains (I've got a budget folks!). And that our living room's accent wall is brick with a black pellet stove. 

I started by shopping for a pillow as a bit of an inspiration piece. I found a marbled pillow at Target that seemed like a great starting point and I built a mood board from there. It's really something that I'm working on with all my design work, so it's a good way to practice in a real application. (See- these graphics classes are starting to pay off!)

This is my first real mood board, but I'm really happy with how it's shaping up. With this project I'm also trying to focus on being bolder and brighter with my accent colors. It's a bit outside the box from my norm, but still very me. 

I'm going to use all these pieces in our space, with the exception of the coral. Instead, I'm going to use some coral we picked up in the Bahamas last month (what fate!). Otherwise, I may have spray painted some aquarium coral to achieve the same look! 

Looking forward to seeing how it all comes together!
