December Moodboard

December Moodboard : Warm Ember Neutrals - roomfortuesday.comHere we are… the very last moodboard of the year. 2018 really seemed to fly by, and I’m ready to welcome a new year… but before I do, here’s a unique color I’m digging this December! Any guesses? I’m really being pulled in a more traditional direction for our new house– or maybe a better way to describe the vibe I’m envisioning is traditional / classic meets modern? Regardless- I’m loving warm, rich tones this winter. Click through to see my finds!

December Moodboard : Warm Ember Neutrals - roomfortuesday.comI’m really attracted to warm leather and wood tones this time of year. That’s something super cozy, inviting, and textural that makes this palette feel timeless. For the sake of the December moodboard, I’ve named the hues in this range “warm ember neutrals”…

01: pendant light // 02: wingback bed // 03: oil portrait of a woman // 04: teakwood & tobacco soy candle // 05: leather framed round mirror // 06: amber waves art // 07: velvet cushion cover // 08: glass pedestal bowl // 09: burl dining table // 10: faux fur seat cushion // 11: glass soap dispenser // 12: dune pitcher // 13: camel suede swivel chair // 14: velvet cushion cover

One of my designer friends just bought that gorgeous burl dining table (#9)- and it is MAGICAL in person. I ordered the pillow (#7) and the candle (#4) for our new place, but I’m waiting to pull the trigger on larger items. If I wasn’t on a spending freeze, I’d snatch up that oil portrait in a heartbeat! It comes framed and is so affordable- please someone buy it for me. Haha! This is honestly one of my favorite moodboard roundups to date- dare I say, it might even be my best moodboard work yet?

December Moodboard : Warm Ember Neutrals - roomfortuesday.comThe above image has a Kelly Wearstler vibe to me. I love how the color was integrated into the wall treatment. I haven’t seen anything like that before and was very intrigued! One of my goals with our new house is to push my creative boundaries and think outside the box. This room also strangely reminded me of the Proper Hotel I stayed at in October.

December Moodboard : Warm Ember Neutrals - roomfortuesday.comDo you guys want to see more monthly moodboards in 2019 or are you over this series? It’s honestly one of my favorites to put together! I love curating unique monochromatic collections and scouring the internet for fresh inspiration- it feels like I get to do something artsy and out of the ordinary compared to my day-to-day design & blog tasks. Let me know what you think or feel free to make suggestions for a new series, if you’d like me to switch it up. I hope everyone is having a great week! xo

    Keep on doing your moodboards! I enjoy this series!

    1. Katrina Blackley says:

      I agree to continue your moodboards :) Can you do a story on bar carts? I know you have in the past, but I don’t drink, but wanted ideas of other options and dressings for a bar cart.

      1. Sarah Hina says:

        I don’t drink either so I’d love some other bar cart styling options.

    2. So excited to hear that, Michelle! xo

  2. Love, love, love the moodboards! I am so color-driven, and the monochromatic format really draws my attention. That burl table totally has me dreaming! And those cantilever chairs in the first image?! Crazy. The wall-covering in the second image reminds me of one I have saved that is squares of hair on hide! Can’t wait to see some of your boundary-pushing ideas! (Sidenote: H&M needs to raise its color-name game… brown? tan?)

    1. I love hearing that, Peggi! I am imagining the hair on hide wall treatment and it has my brain spinning (in a good way). It sounds amazing! H&M definitely needs to up their color names- BORING.

  3. I enjoy the mood boards. Once a month is perfect!

    1. Amazing!! Excited to hear that- thanks for sharing your feedback :)

  4. Another vote for more moodboards – I love this series! It’s fun to see what you’re into and get ideas on how to incorporate it into my own home. Also, they often help me think about bringing in colors, textures, etc. that I wouldn’t necessarily have considered using on my own (or have thought about using and needed some great products to do so). I love that fresh perspective! :)

    1. That’s the best news! That’s exactly what I hoped the moodboard posts would evoke… and selfishly- I have SO much fun putting them together. xo

  5. Keep it up! I love these!

    1. Woohoo!! Will do :) Thanks Michelle!

  6. Ooooh, I love this mood board! I really like oranges and reds and don’t see enough of them incorporated into home decor. I really really want that art print, it’s so pretty!

  7. I love the mood boards, and I think it shows that you love to put them together! Win-win!

    1. Thanks Jennifer! So happy to hear that :) xo

  8. I’ve had my eye on that burl dining table for agessss as a desk for our office, but haven’t pulled the trigger just yet. But I freakin LOVE it! Loving this mood board too!

    1. Me too!! That table is SO good. It would be really amazing in a studio setting. Thanks Jamie! xo
