Did you notice I accidentally skipped last month’s moodboard? It’s probably the first time in two years- or since I started the series, that I forgot to do one. Whoops! Obviously September was super busy. I’ve had a lot going on, but these posts are actually really therapeutic for me and I enjoy putting them together. Compiling October’s moodboard made me really happy and this month I’m into a moody color- midnight blue! It’s dark, sophisticated, can be used in moderation, or in large amounts for a serious statement. Click through to see what has been inspiring me lately and to shop my recent finds.
Every time I stumble across that gorgeous blue fireplace and built-ins being painted, I re-pin it. It’s one of my most coveted shades of blue! I dubbed this moodboard “midnight” blue, because it’s less saturated and deeper than a typical, preppy navy. It feels rich, neutral, has a ton of depth, and can pretty much go with any aesthetic. It was definitely inspired by the image shown above.
I’d obviously take anything from the roundup above, but I’m specifically into that gorgeous velvet swivel chair (#7), the channel tufted bedding (#6), and the pinch pleated drapery (#4). I feel like you could use any of those three items if you aren’t fully ready to commit, but you still want to make a BIG statement. It’s the perfect middle ground…. drapery, bedding, and a stunning accent chair. That’s all you really need.
Are you guys also feeling moody hues as we’re making our way into the fall season? I certainly am. I’m hopping a flight as we speak to California for my design retreat, so be sure to follow along on Instagram! Don’t worry… I have a full week of blog posts scheduled and Jacqueline is filling in for me later in the week with an awesome DIY. Stay tuned.
