Have you heard?

of Olioboard? It is an amazing site that I discovered a few months back - it lets you create your own "mood" or "inspiration" boards using easy-to-navigate tools and it gives you access to a huge bank of images (150,000+). What's more, there is an clipper tool that you can install in your browser bar (similar to Pinterest) which means you can search and save an unlimited number of images. There is a built-in budget tool, a source guide, a Benjamin Moore colour palette tool, and I haven't even told you the best part yet - it is FREE!!! The Pro Plan ($9.95/month) has some additional features to offer, but the basic building tools are only a click away.

I have been having a lot of fun creating these boards and have found that my clients LOVE them. Now, while nothing can replace the touch and feel experience of an actual inspiration board, this one is quick to produce, can easily be edited if a client wants changes, and it can be emailed and even posted on facebook. By now you may be wondering if this is an Olioboard sponsored post, and the answer would be no! I just really love this site and I urge you to try it. If I can navigate it, then so can you!

As one of my recent assignments for school, I had to hypothetically redesign one of the rooms in my home - I chose my master ensuite because it is in SUCH need of a makeover! So, after writing down all of the things I would change about the room and why, I shared my inspiration for what I'd love the room to look day...a girl can dream...can't she?

Here is what I came up with:

Super fun! And just as soon as the money tree in my backyard decides to bloom again, I can turn this dream into a reality.
