So...I'm Basically A Professional Designer Now

So, my friend, Brenna, approached me and asked if I would make her a mood board for ideas/inspiration for her bedroom. I was thrilled, so of course I said yes.

I had her send me a couple pictures of what she currently has in her bedroom and for her to explain what kinds of styles she likes. The above pictures are what she currently has and she is wanting to keep her bedding, so the color scheme was going to need to center around the yellow and neutrals. In addition, she said that she doesn't want it to look too matchy, but more eclectic.

After several hours I had come up with the mood board below. She once mentioned that she really liked the look for the iron head and footboard. I went matchy on the nightstands and lamps because it gives it some balance. The chest of drawers (assuming the top is an espresso/black color) gives a somewhat eclectic feel and the little yellow chair is just adorable. The fleur de lis represents Louisville so I had to include that.

 What do you think? Is the yellow chair too much? Have you ever used olioboard.com to come up with a mood board for you or a friend to actually use when redecorating?
