Design Your Style: Olioboard Moodboard App For Interior Decor

The days of weary eyed tiredness as you seek inspiration, papercuts from endless magazine cutouts, and being overwhelmed by design options have met their match.  Olioboard offers a Mood Board Creator App online that allows you to peruse, drag and drop, and even upload furniture, accessories, decorative elements, fabrics, artwork, or lighting into a virtual Mood Board.

Here's my first one (NOT my last).  These are elements of my dream office.  Olioboard's Mood Board Creator App helped me put it all together in a matter of minutes rather than days.  I always advise clients to tear or tag their favorite interior shots in magazines and sites to get creative juices flowing for color and design.  Olioboard has finally arrived to make the whole process simple, stylish, and available 24 hours a day.

You can find art prints for $20 or a desk like the one above for $12k!  The variety of products lets everyone finddesign in their budget and style.

The only thing missing as far as I can see is paint!  There are a few uploaded colors on site-- a great start!  But, Olioboard, ask any designer and they'll tell you that you need a full offering of Color and Paint to complete any project. And of course, we designers love Benjamin Moore.  Okay, I'm a little biased, but still, Benjamin Moore does have a huge fan base!  Check out the Experts Exchange to see what I mean.

Here are my picks for color and paint that would complete my look in the office above.

These colors in Aura are just the refreshing palette I'm after right now for my office.  I'll have to work on getting that $12000 Cavour Desk by Carl Mollino from Hive Modern.

Here's how the board looks with my colors included:
