“Holiday Style” Christmas Hop
If you read my blog on a regular basis you know how much I adore Olioboard. I use it for all sorts of things from client presentations to creating mood boards to inspire me for my blog. If you don’t know what Olioboard is, it’s not too late to learn! Olioboard is a fabulous website that allows you to create your own interior design mood boards using their extensive library of products and images, or you can upload your own. It’s similar to a simplified version of Photoshop. It’s super easy to use but I found watching the youtube video “How to Create 3D Room Designs on Olioboard” really helpful. It’s the quickest
way to learn how to use Olioboard!
I am honored to be in the company of nine other well known designers and bloggers who are also joining in on the fun and have created their visions of “Holiday Style.” I chose to do two rooms, one for the “Lady of the House” and one for “The gentleman”.
Here are my Holiday Inspirations:
For the Gentleman’s study, I picture a very traditional design in traditional red and greens. which add richness to the otherwise masculine decor. I picture the wall painted Benjamin Moore Grey Owl to compliment the dark wood paneling. The fun pillows tossed in the chairs are a crowning touch. All that is needed to finish this room is a fire in the fireplace, a yummy cup of cider and a good book. I’m quite sure that Saint Nick will pause for a rest in one of these cozy chairs before taking off up the chimney again, don’t you?
For The Lady of the House:
magazines and books can be a great places to get ideas.
build my palette from there. Ribbon can be used to wrap the presents, bannister rails and decorating the tree giving a room a cohesive look. So shop for ribbon first!
3) Consider repeating the colors in your room in your holiday decor and add a touch of sparkle to make it look festive. For example, if the room is blue and green, buy blue and green ribbon and add gold to the mix to great beautiful bows to accentuate the decor.

The most important part of creating a “Holiday Style” Room is factoring in time to sit and enjoy it during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season!
