Vacation Inspired Mood Board

Today I am taking a little vacay with my hubby to sunny California. I am so excited to take a break from the dreaded Utah winter. In honor of my getaway I have put together a beach inspired mood board for you.
I tried to keep this board budget friendly. 
Let’s start with the inspiration for the whole thing… 

I LOVE this seaside inspired pillow. It’s so peaceful and the blues are beautiful. You can find the other pillows here,  here and here
The next purchase would be this rug. It’s from World Market and the website says they have it available in a 8 x 10.  While we are at we could pick up this sofa from World Market as well. The Coffee table is a classic and can be found here
This new Z Gallerie Chair is spectacular! I think two of these would bring the perfect “punch” to this room. 
And while we are Z Gallerie we could pick up one of these for the coffee table. 
Some striped blue curtains would really add the nautical feel we are going for here. 
This mirror would be just the finishing touch we need. And it’s only $89.99! 
Wow, putting that together really did get me excited for my trip. Don’t worry I’ll be posting from our condo. I’ll let you know how it was when I get back!

    I love the pretty teals and blues in this space- and as usual, I LOVE the mix of bold patterns! The punch of red makes the room exciting and young… love this vaca mood board!

    Kirsten, this is my favorite mood board you've done! Of course, that's primarily because it's almost EXACTLY the look I'm going for in our new family room — Love it! Enjoy your vacation.

    Kirsten- I have been loving what you're doing lately (just haven't had the chance to comment!) That yellow and turquoise room was fabulous! You're right, that Z Gallerie chair is awesome! And I can't believe you found that mirror at Kirkland's- it looks just like the $300 Williams Sonoma Home one that I was eyeing forever but settled on a similar one (just 2 rings) from Hobby Lobby for $50!

    Have a fabulous time! Your site is so lovely. I admire your style so much. I have to admit, I am very jealous that you are going to cali. Haha.. please check out my new blog if you have a chance. I'd love to receive your feedback.

    I love this mood board. The colors are exactly what I've been drawn to lately. Maybe it's because I've been feeling like I need a break too. Hope you and your hubby have fun! Soak up some rays for us 🙂
