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!

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!

Decorating your bedroom

A bedroom is more than just a place to sleep. Your bedroom is your sanctuary – where you wind down from a long day, relax and rejuvenate yourself! Bedrooms are so special, they just might be the most important room you decorate!

Here are some of our favorite tips on letting your personality shine in your bedroom decor:

  • Invest in a quality bedroom set and let it become the focal point of your room.
  • Pay attention to window treatment choices. The right curtains can add a soft and dreamy touch to your bedroom.
  • Add wall art to bring out pops of color and personality.
  • Pile on the pillows. Mix and match patterns to add texture and fun to your bed.
  • Choose a printed bedspread to bring a pattern into play in a simple, straightforward way.
  • Choose accent pieces that fit the scale and style of the bedroom.
  • Don’t forget the floor! A soft area rug can add a burt of color plus a soft place to put your feet.
  • Most importantly: express your personality! Don’t be afraid to let your bedroom be an expression of YOU.
