    Hey Meghann… I just did a brown/green/cranberry living room at my place.

    Thought I’d pass it along, to give you an idea of the shade of green!

    I’ve never used vision boards but they actually look like a fab tool. I’m loving the colours and designs you’ve got on yours and can’t wait to see it come to life in Derek’s apartment.

    I am a HUGE fan of vision boards – probably because I’m a very visual learner. Normally I just make them for my goals (and to inspire myself) but I really like how you’ve used one for this project too. The colours you’ve picked are great! I can’t wait to see the finished product!

    How do you make a vision board? I would love to do this for my living room! Is it some kind of computer tool? I’m clueless when it comes to that kind of stuff…is there a link or something? Haha help!

    I haven’t ever really done a vision board, but they seem so useful. And just seeing yours makes me want to go home and decorate. They’re a great tool!

    I LOVE vision boards for my goals/dreams, etc. But I would SUCK at vision boards for this like interior decorating or a “wedding” dream board. Not good at colors and matching… I need Molly! Looks great!!

    I’ve never even heard of vision boards. That would have been helpful when I was painting/putting down flooring for my new house. Instead, I put 10 colors of paint on the wall that I hated, then had to cover them up, and finally found the one I loved.
    10 paint samples = a lot of wasted time and money

    I’ve never made a vision board — I understand their use, but I’ve never needed one. Maybe because we haven’t really redecorated much? When we got married we combined our stuff, Jason didn’t mind what I kept and what I tossed, so I just made do with what we have.

    Hopefully in the next year or two we will do more decorating, etc.

    I really like vision boards because I’m a very visual person. If I can see what I’m working towards, I’m much more likely to accomplish my goal. I currently have no room for a vision board but have already thought about mounting one on the back of one of our many teeny tiny closets once we move into our new house.

    How funny, that’s my exact living room! We have the”spring green” in our curtains (I call it that bc it looks so springy!) – curtains are SO expensive, but totally worth it!

    I think blue would make a good addition to the room you have started there! Pick up the blue in the pillows in a few more accents and you have a great room.

    LOVE them! My boyfriend and I are moving into a townhouse that we bought mid-March and we are going to be doing a complete paint job to it. I am leaning towards the olive/green-y colour in the living room as well with a tan couch – a lighter brown/tan though!

    Did you just create that vision board in photoshop? I am not that good with photoshop but can’t figure out a good way to create one online or something?

    i personally don’t really get vision boards…but for something like a house re-decoration, i think i ‘get’ them more than for year-long goals or something.

    I love vision boards too! It helps keep me on track when I lose focus at the flea market on some orange vintage chair. You know?
