Mood Board | Interior Design | Nautical | August

Mood Board of the month

This month’s mood board was inspired by that gorgeous blue rug below. With summer in full swing, I am in vacation mode. Which means I can’t get enough nautical and beach decor.

So, naturally, I was browsing through all my favorite “resort living” home decor stores and I stumbled across that guy and knew I needed to curate a design around it. Luckily these same stores offer plenty of other beachy accents like the limed mahogany accent chair, blue and white pillows, are more. This mood board of the month might just be one of my favorites.
