The holiday decor moodboard challenge wrap up

Big thanks to all the amazing bloggers who joined in on our Olioboard Holiday Blog Hop. I hope you all had as much fun as I did. For those that have been following along, I hope you picked up some great new tips for achieving a particular holiday style. If you missed any of the moodboard designs along the way, you can see them all below. Just click on any of the moodboards to be directed to the full blog post. Have a look and let us know what you think.

If you are a fan of the coastal style, look no further. Liz is the master. Her coastal holiday inspired moodboard is one of many great examples. The beachy colour scheme, star fish ornaments and sea inspired stockings all work well together to create a festive sea side holiday look. She sparkled up her room with some great items like the crowns on the wall behind the couch with garland, shiny ornaments and the starlette mirrored sconces above the fireplace. Beautiful design Liz!


Vanessa’s beautiful classic red and white design is sure to be a favourite amongst the traditional Christmas colour lovers. She also shares some great tips and tricks for decorating on a smaller budget like the Ikea fabric table runner, adding holiday throw pillows and simply decorating with fruit and candy to give that extra pop of colour.


Wednesday’s holiday moodboard design came from the lovely ladies over at Covet Garden. We’re loving the tiny mushroom ornaments. These mushroom ornaments are popping up everywhere this year. The succulent wreath is also a great piece and a nice alternative to the standard options. You could probably even take it apart after the holiday’s and replant each one for a beautiful succulent garden, just like these little beauties.


We love that Julie tossed aside the traditional colour schemes and create a fresh new take on decorating for the holidays. Her bold fuchsia, silver and black colour scheme gives off a modern and glam holiday look. Keeping a neutral backdrop with gray and silver allows the fuchsia to be the show stopper. We’re also loving her display of cut flowers in stemless wine glasses. Great idea and very pretty.


I love Adrienne’s use of bright colours and bold fun patterns. For all those that have no fireplace to hang stockings on, she has you covered. Check out the fun hip, red, metal coat rack in her moodboard. It’s a fun alternative and great solution for hanging stockings. The wood tones in Adrienne’s design help keep the overall look warm, comfortable and inviting. Great job!


As you can see, I opted to go for a crafty and homemade Christmas look. I’m completely in love with the felt and knit animal ornaments this year. While they are not homemade, they definitely give off that feel and were the inspiration for my moodboard design. I’m also on a kick right now with turning old sweaters into comfy accent pillows which probably also inspired this homemade holiday look. Hope you like it!

How will you be decorating your space this holiday season?

If you still have the decorating bug in you and you want to let some of that creativity out, head over to Olioboard and enter a design into the “Ultimate Christmas Tree Decorating Challenge.” There are some beautiful designs in the challenge already, but we would love to see what you can bring to the table.

Thanks for following along and happy olioboarding!
