Moodboard Monday ( Olioboard Blog Hop #3 )

As a mother myself, I was thrilled to hear of this months blog hop topic, Mom Spots. I loved the idea of creating a place for mothers to escape and call their own. With a million and one things constantly on the go, relaxation often takes a back seat in our lives. However without well spent moments of rejuvenation we wind up giving only second best to the ones that need us most.

I have created my boards around the Spa escape. A trip to the spa can not only be a costly venture but also requires alloted time, which can some times be hard to come by with multi-tasking lives. This fact, is what inspired me to create the Spa Serenity. The at home spa where a nightly escapes become the best part of the day.

I started my creations by putting together an inspiration board. On this board I was able to quickly select items that remind me of all the things that capture the essences of a relaxing spa setting.

Inspirational Board ( Spa Serenity )


I find undeniable calm from the colour green. Full of notes of nature, freshness and new beginnings, a soft, muted shade of green, is spa perfect. Coupled with crisp white, the welcome of renewed energy is evident. For warmth, I took the look of sand and stones and worked their textures and colours them throughout my boards to allow for a soft welcoming finish.

Materials and Finishes Boards ( Spa Serenity )



Here is where you can start to see your inspirations come to life. Using my inspirational  image selection, I can begin showcasing just their shapes, colours and textures and how to use them to create truly relaxing vibe.

3d Visualisation Board ( Spa Serenity )



Relax, Renew, Refresh, are words to live by when creating the perfect space for unwinding. In  keeping with the flow of relaxation, remember to bring in a little scented candle light. Scent is a great way help put you in a zone of pure tranquillity. Alo be generous with your towel selection on go for the super soft white look and feel, for wrapping your rejuvenated body.
