Furnish 123’s Fall Inspiration Mood board

This week we finally welcomed the fall season! Okay, so the weather may still be extra hot here in Austin but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about autumn colors and decor. In honor of this lovely season, we’ve created another mood board with our favorite tool, Olioboard. We loved creating our first mood board  and this fall mood board was just as fun. Check it out:

By incorporating warm shades of eggplant purple in our Renee sofa (only $399!) and sand colored walls, we channeled the coziness of fall without going over the top! The dark wood in our Ripley tables (3 tables for $199) bring all the warm features together in a perfectly palatable fall-inspired room. What we love the most is that these fall colors are subtle enough to go well with any season.

Are you ready for autumn? What decor changes do you make as the weather gets cooler?

Furnish 123 Austin’s first mood board!

Last week, we came across Young House Love’s most recent mood board and decided we could give it a shot! Utilizing some great pieces from Furnish 123, a little inspiration and lots of good humor we are proud to introduce our very first mood board. What is a mood board, exactly? Well, a mood board is simply an easy way to organize all of your style and design ideas for a room into one very visual spot. We used a great web-based application called Olioboard to design our mood board – all online, no scissors or glue needed.

Can you guess which pieces are from Furnish 123? We’ll help you – below are all the pieces you can purchase at our store!

5. Artwork by Doug Naugle

Doug Naugle is one of Furnish 123 Austin’s featured local artists. You can purchase pieces just like this at our store while his artwork is on display!

6. Langley rug in Linen

A nice, neutral colored rug to add dimension to your room.

7. Noam accent tables
$199 for the  3 piece table set

With the sleek contemporary design bathed in a warm brown finish, the “Noam” accent table collection uses subtle curves and stylish X-stretchers to enhance the style and excitement of any living room décor. This set includes a coffee table and two end tables.

8. Jemma lamp
$99 for a set of 2

A deep red ceramic table lamp topped with a black drum shade and features a 3-way switch.

9. Riverton Sofa in Spa

Refreshing contemporary style comes to life with the light upholstery fabric and sweeping design making the “Riverton” upholstery collection the ultimate choice to wake up your home.


The rest of our inspiration was drawn from Olioboard’s extensive accessory collection – a few books, candles, mirrors and curtains make up the rest of the room. Add a nice yellow wall color and there you have our first mood board!
