Mood Board – Dream Dressing Room

I’m so excited to finally share this post with you. I was recently inspired by Arhaus to share a post on my ideal dream dressing room mood board along with a few design tips! I’m no where close to being an interior designer, but I do love putting together mood boards to illustrate some ideas I have about my dream home. I currently live in an apartment, so most of you understand that I’m in desperate need of an upgrade from my small walk-in closet to a boutique-inspired room complete with extra seating, stylish lighting and other luxuries. And although I won’t be moving into my perfectly spacious closet any time soon, a girl is never too old to keep dreaming right? Anyways, if you’re contemplating a closet upgrade or simply just daydreaming about it, here are 5 tips to keep in mind when creating your new space:

1. Mirrors: Be sure to add mirrors and/or mirrored doors to the space because it adds light to the room and also provides views from every angle while getting dressed. The right mirror can add a little character to the space as well. I love how this one has a distressed finish creating a vintage style to this closet.

2. Incorporate an Island: If you have extra space in your closet, then try to incorporate an island in the space. An island makes a statement in any room, especially a closet since it’s rare to see. You can have one built in or use a dresser or chest like these here. The dresser I picked out below has the right details to transform a typical closet into a stylish sanctuary. It also has additional drawers for storage and space to lay out clothing for a better view when packing or organizing.

3. Jewelry and Accessories Station: Take inspiration from your favorite stores or boutiques to display your collection of clutches and handbags, statement necklaces, bracelets, earrings and shoes. Adding displays like a mannequin, a rolling rack, a jewelry armoire or an open bookcase for your shoes are perfect ways to create a unique and sophisticated space.

4. Seating Arrangement: In order for your walk-in closet to be truly functional and enjoyable, you’ll need proper seating. An ottoman or an armchair is the perfect solution. You can lay out outfits on the ottoman or sit on the chair to get your shoes on. It’s also an easy way to bring color into your closet to make it feel like every other room in the home

5. Proper Lighting: Light fixtures in closets are necessary especially when they lack natural lighting. Finding the right outfit by making sure the colors match and/or making sure that your outfit isn’t too sheer requires proper lighting. Go for an elegant style if you want to replicate a celebrity-style closet. Adding a chandelier like any of these here will certainly do just the trick.

Well, there you have it. Check out some of my favorite pieces from Arhaus for my dream dressing room below. What would your dream dressing room look like? Do you already have one? Let me know if you have any other furniture suggestions for this room.

Mood Board – Living Room Inspiration

Sorry I’ve been a little MIA lately, between work, Hurricane Matthew and a family wedding I’ve been extremely busy this month so far.  Anyways, do you all have a Pinterest account?  I’ve been obsessed with the site lately and I’m constantly pinning some amazing home decor finds, fashion inspiration and healthy recipes.  If you haven’t had a chance to check out my Moody Girl In Style Pinterest page yet, please consider checking it.  I’m pretty sure you’ll find a few things that you’ll want to pin.   

Now on to this fun post.  I’m currently looking to buy a new place and I’ve been obsessed with surfing the internet for home decor inspiration especially with my living room.  My living room furniture right now is so old and it's just not my style.  My living room set was just something I purchased when I got out of school for the right price at the right time.  If I had it my way I would have gotten rid of it a long time ago.  Since I dislike my furniture so much, I’m determined to move into my new home with new furniture and a fresh, timeless style. So far, I’ve decided that the color palette of my living room will be cream, gold, blue, gray and espresso brown.  It’s a pretty neutral color combination, so I can add in another pop of color if I get bored.

I’m most looking forward to updating my hand-me-down tan couch to this one from or this one from Pottery Barn.  I haven't fully decided yet on which couch I'll get.  I’ll probably continue to search online for the right one, but I know for sure that it will be a gray couch.  I also really love the idea of this coffee table from World Market and I think this plush geometric rug will add an eye-catching element to the room instead my drab tan carpet.  I’m also obsessed with this chair from, - the blue color is just the perfect fit.  

Well, check out my favorite pieces below for my new potential living room.  What do you guys think about my picks? Let me know if you have any other furniture suggestions for this room or if you have any favorites from the post. I'm also thinking about doing more of these home decor boards, so let me know if this is something that you would like to see more of on the blog.
