It’s Monthly Moodboard time! After hosting more house guests this weekend, I’m easing into the week with one of my favorite series… a post I look forward to compiling each month- a new moodboard. We’re nearly back into a routine over here after the holiday season (I know- it’s taking us forever), but between our living room reveal, the basement bathroom renovation, getting sick, and hosting company, it has felt like a dizzying whirlwind these past couple months. I’m welcoming a fresh week to fall back into our normal schedule and set a new pace for the year ahead. Anyway, back to the moodboard… this month I’m feeling a color you might expect (after seeing pops of it throughout our formal living room last week). I’m calling it rust, but other names that come to mind include: burnt sienna, persimmon, and reddish orange. Regardless of the description, it’s a nice, dark, warm tone I’m really digging lately.

01: sofa // 02: alpaca throw // 03: tassel pillow // 04: matte dinner set // 05: isabella chair // 06: rust rug // 07: copper stitch sheet set // 08: jacquard bath towel // 09: office chair // 10: avery throw // 11: ball pillow
I would gladly install any of the items into my home from this month’s roundup, but my favorites include the modern chair (#5), the Persian rug (#6), the office chair (#9), and the ball pillow (#11). Speaking of ball pillows… have you noticed a trend in round pillows showing up in living spaces lately? I think they’re really fun AND functional- I’m honestly liking the trend a lot. They’re more comfortable than they look and you can position them in so many ways.
All of that to say, I wanted to buy one the other day, but priced at $300- I couldn’t justify spending that much for the pattern I wanted. I decided I’m going to sew one myself this week, so look for a neat DIY project coming to the blog very soon!
I like this rich color for textiles, upholstery (like the gorgeous slipcovered sofa pictured above), art, and accessories. I know brown is forecasted to come back in a big way this year, but I think I prefer this tone to chocolate brown. It seems like it has more depth and warmth.
I hope you all have a wonderful week! As I navigate my work schedule and fall back into a better routine, I have a lot of awesome things planned for the coming months and I can’t wait to share more! Let’s make it a good one, friends (day, week, month, and year).
