Go with the Flow

So if you haven't noticed, I've been trying to freshen up the H-Haus this year. Nothing major - our furniture will stay, the paint will stay; I'll just be replacing/adding a few key accessories here and there. One thing I always try to think about is if our home has 'flow'. That doesn't mean I want the rooms to be matchy-matchy, but that I do want it to make sense together. Can I take a pillow out of the living room and throw it on the sofa in the back room without it looking crazy?

I'm super visual, so one of my favorite things to do to see how things are coming together is to make a collage. I take photos of the H-Haus, products I'm considering purchasing, and inspiration photos and layer them together to see if it all 'works'. Sometimes I create the collage on a pinboard, sometimes with glue, and sometimes on the computer. This time I went with the computer (considering I have a one-and-a-half year old this tends to be the fastest, cleanest option!) and I'm pretty pleased with the results:

If you look closely you'll see pics of the back room, living/dining room, bathroom, and even Violet's big girl room here along with some products that I've mentioned recently on the blog. A few inspiration photos help to give me an idea of what else I still need. You can see one of the main colors I'm trying to incorporate is a 'grellow'. I love how it's just so fresh and it makes me happy!

Stay tuned, I'll be sure to keep you updated as things come together!



  1. Wow, I really like this technique! I've made moodboards in the past, but this is like taking that idea to a whole new level. So awesome. I'll have to try it. Thanks for the idea!

  2. I really like this idea. I think I'll try it sometime! Thanks for sharing.

  3. That's a nice idea. I'm assuming you did this in PS? Sometimes I play around with Power Point and do something like this too. It is a good way to get a feel for how something will look. I think a little grellow in your house will look great!
