Yesterday I received an email from Decor8 about a new creative project that Holly is launching. It’s nothing totally new but it is definitely very inspiring. It gave me inspiration I desperately needed. While taking care of our little girl, my blog is sometimes a bit too much. It’s not that I don’t have the time to write here, but there are so many other things that have to go first. For example, except taking care of Jaya, doing work to earn money, cooking and cleaning. This morning I got up with a boring sense of feeling. I don’t know, today it feels like a very boring day. There is no sunshine, I’m home alone, the work that I’m doing is boring, my hubby is away tonight so nothing much excited. Do you know those days that everything seems boring? Even when all is the same as the day before when it all seemed very cool?
So, that’s why I was so happy with Holly’s new creative project; Monday Mood Boards! This is what Holly’s explains about it:
All you need to do is upload a photo that you take on Monday (or any day that week) and hashtag it #decor8monday so everyone can see what you’ve posted. It’s a great way to meet new like-minded friends. Try to make a new one each week and photograph it in natural daylight (no flash). Also, please make it by hand, no digital collages or photo grids, etc. Your mood board should simply show what is inspiring you this week. It can show anything from magazine pages or personal photos, fabric swatches, ribbons, papers, whatever! You can lay everything out on a table and shoot downward or pin or tape to a wall and photograph straight on. You can participate weekly, just once, biweekly, it’s up to you! The only rule is that you do not post unrelated photos using our hashtag, so please no spam!
So my first Monday Mood Board is about Red and Blue! My favorite colors but also the colors of the Netherlands, of windmills and the sea. This mood board is a collection of interiors, DIY projects, my favorite car the Fiat 500 oldtimer in red, the sky, my favorite haircut (which I have at the moment), crockery and a few Flow Weekly’s.
What do you think of creating a mood board? Does a mood board reflect your mood or just an style you like? I think it does both. I’m attracted by these images but it’s also a mood that it reflects. Blue and red are bright and cheerful colors, something I really love in life. I could also create a moody mood board but that’s not something I would do today. Today is about bright and happy things!
Some more inspiration that would fit this mood board very well..
