Lately I've had my eye on just about everything from West Elm. Their products have such gorgeous textures and patterns. The window coverings are exactly what I've been looking for, and the furniture is just the right amount of modern. Not to mention, quite a few of their pieces have a nice little rustic touch that fits into both mine and my husband's tastes, and that's a feat in itself. Without further ado, here is my living room mood board.

Obviously we can't afford all these things from West Elm, but I did learn a few things from putting together this mood board. I am obviously on a gray (or greige) kick, and I really love pieces that have some natural wood colors. Luckily my husband liked many of the items I chose, so agreeing on home decor and style isn't too big a chore.
The fun thing about making a mood board is it gets ideas flowing, and it helps you realize trends in your taste. You start noticing repeat colors (or lack of color in our case) and styles. If I keep these images in mind while shopping, I just might come across a similar, and more affordable, piece somewhere else. As much as I love West Elm, I definitely don't have the money to furnish our entire place with their stuff. A girl can dream though. If that coffee table didn't have a $699 price tag, it would be mine. *sigh*
