July Inspiration Board Challenge: A Tangerine & Mint Office

I am super excited to be joining a bevvy of talented bloggers this month for a recurring mood board inspiration challenge. Here’s the inspiration photo we all started with…
And here’s where I went with it…
Mint and Tangerine Office Mood Board
Bookshelf – Layla Grace // Pendant – Oly Studio
Wallpaper – Laura Ashley // Dresser – Anthropologie
Console – Layla Grace // Lamp – Clayton Grey // Desk – Lamps Plus
Fabric – Caitlin Wilson // Chair – vintage
Rug – Madeline Weinrib // Sofa – Urban Outfitters

I don’t have an office, and probably won’t any time soon, so I completely indulged myself with this. It’s an eclectic mix but I think the colour palette helps it feel cohesive. And it has a ton of storage, so it’s totally functional, and obviously very girly (to repel messy boys).

Side note: I realise my “tangerine” may or may not have some coral undertones, shall we say. Apparently I just can’t help myself. But it’s definitely more orange than the pinkier corals I usually go with. And that Caitlin Wilson fabric is called “Tangerine Lotus.”

I love this concept – so fun to see different takes on the same starting point. Here’s what everyone else came up with, and what they had to say about their designs…

For me this picture just sang kitchen! {Maybe it’s because I have mint and yellow in mine.} I just had to share some of my latest loves for kitchen accessories. I’m hoping to actually get some art up on the walls in my house, so if it is a little art-heavy that’s why! After the kids’ rooms are done then I’m planning on finishing the art in our entry-way makeover, and then FINALLY I can get to decorating the rest of the kitchen.

There is no better match than mint and orange! I had so much fun designing my pretend living room that it seriously made me want to add these colors into my own living space.
{Samantha from Designer in Teal}
This is hands down my favorite color combination and it fits perfectly for a kitchen setting. The sunny yellow and orange pop against the fresh mint. I also gave the kitchen and dining area a vintage industrial spin. Can’t wait to add this into my “dream home” plan!

These colors inspired me to create a restful guest room mood board. I love the idea of mismatched nightstands – updating an old curvy dresser in fresh mint for one side and a more masculine grey desk for the other side. I would use lots of white to keep things fresh & raw wood to bring nature in. Add in some fun colorful art & a whimsical bronze rhino for a guest room that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
