November Moodboard

Typically coming into Thanksgiving and November, I crave all of the moody burgundy, red, and burnt orange colors- but this year I’m gravitating toward warmer neutrals. I’m not sure if I’m longing for a sense of calm, or just loving the fact that you can pair this palette alongside any other color. Regardless, my bright office inspired me to source some favorite warm white decor items in this versatile non-saturated hue. It pairs well with holiday greenery, cozy flannels, colorful cable knits, and is anything but boring when styled right. Click through for some serious inspiration to kick off the week in this month’s moodboard!

I got a ton of questions about my horse head sculpture in the office reveal last week, so of course I included that in the monthly decor roundup as well! I’ve had it for over five years and still love it as much as I did the day I bought it. It could easily be painted a different color if you’re not into white. But back to the moodboard… I’m feeling warm, soft neutrals this November. They’re cozy, inviting, and feel really fresh. The palette honestly made me think of cuddling up inside during the first snowfall of winter. The more texture (think shearling, boucle, & wool), the better!

01: white and brass bed // 02: white chandelier // 03: vase // 04: figure drawing artwork // 05: hand knotted rug // 06: boucle chair // 07: off white vintage turkish rug // 08: white tassel pillow // 09: horse head sculpture // 10: floor lamp // 11: warm white serving bowl // 12: off white sofa

Someone please snatch up these items before they’re gone! I already bought the pillow (#8) and bowl (#11) for Thanksgiving entertaining, but I’m especially digging the vintage rug (#7), the chandelier (#2), the figure drawing (#4) by my talented friend Laurie Anne, who spent all weekend visiting from Arizona, as well as the classic floor lamp (#10).

I’m also into the idea of pairing bold colors alongside warm, textural white. I snapped the above image at the Alice Lane parade home a few months ago. I really think the pleated drapery panels are the perfect backdrop for those crimson dining chairs.

  1. My color-loving heart never craves neutrals, but I do like how the occasional ivory piece provides contrast. I especially like the lamp and the bed, but that boucle chair is bananas! (I fear we are not a white chair kind of house though.) So far I’ve purchased a patchwork velvet skirt and a vintage kantha for Thanksgiving entertaining…I feel like our holiday looks might be going in different directions!🤣 Maybe I do need one of those pretty white bowls for contrast.

    1. I know!! I liked that chair too. I could see the dogs taking it over though. I think your Thanksgiving items could be really cool together, ha! xox

  2. Hi Sarah, your moodboards are so inspirational and beautiful to look at!
    Could you share, how did you create your moodboard? Especially the one with the paints selection!

    Many thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you Azi! All of my moodboards and graphics are created in Photoshop :)

  3. Hi Sarah! Getting ready to work on a guest room and the color of your office is top of the list but I can find the color source. Could you help me out? Thanks, Ashley

  4. What is the wall colour? So warm

  5. Can you share the pint color for the walls please?!?! We are getting ready to paint our nursery for our first born and are in looooove with this wall color!

      1. Origami white is very pink undertones and your pic looks like a yellow undertone white like white dove or the like.

        1. Nope, it’s Origami White. Paint tends to take on the colors and light surrounding it. That’s why I always recommend swatching it before committing- because the same color can look totally different, depending on the house and environment.

  6. Beautiful colors! Could you please share the paint color for the trim, too? Thank you!

    Hi there! For the last picture on the mood board, what was the wall and trim color? Working on repainting my whole house and am gathering color moods.

    Would you call those colors warm toned?

  8. Stephanie Canfield says:

    Could you please tell the name of the trim color you used in the last photo? It’s the one with Origami White walls.

    1. Hi Stephanie, it’s Extra White by Sherwin-Williams.
