Pink and Dining Rooms

I was invited to participate in a mood board challenge on another blog.  The mood board could be for any room, but had to involve pink – for breast cancer awareness week coming up.

Here is what I came up with.


You may notice it’s a slightly different format than my usual storyboards.  that is because for the first time, I used Olioboard.  It really did automate the process.  I hadn’t used it before because I sort of had to grieve its invention, as it was an idea I was working on with my husband – the exact same thing.  And, then suddenly, it appeared on the scene before we had a chance to create it.

Nonetheless, they did a great job with it!  It’s pretty user friendly and works well.  If you haven’t tried it out, you should.

Here is another version of a dining room with pink in it.  This time, with pink curtains, a just rug, and green chairs.


What about with more luxurious chairs and a fancier chandelier, and maybe a different console table?


What look do you prefer?

Stay tuned because the pink mood boards will appear on Finishing Touch Interiors blog on March 5th.

Do you use Olioboard?   What do you think of it?   If you are on it, feel free to link to me on it.



  1. I haven’t heard of Olioboard, but I’m off to check it out!

  2. Pink and green…probably my all time favorite color combo! I like the first board the best. Fun designs!

  3. I love your first board! The green curtains are fantastic.

  4. I ADORE the first board. I use olioboard but I find it takes me way too long to create a board because I”m checking out every single page of furniture. I need to find a way to create without browsing so long.

  5. I love Olioboard, but for whatever reason it ALWAYS defaults to a super large screen while I am using it. I don’t know if it is the flash with my Mac or or browser. It is a quick way to see the things in a room and get the feel of how it is going to look. Love that round mirror, is it the one from West Elm? They have been out of it forever, just hoping they will get more back in.
