Olio Board Charity Causes / Olio Hop
Im very excited to be a part of the Charity Causes Olio Hop with Olio Board this month! Olio Board has chosen a few designers who are working on various charity projects and we are previewing each of our mood boards on our blogs and social media. Please follow us all on twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook and search the tag names: #Oliohop, #CharityCauses to view our boards and information on each project.
My Olio Board is a bedroom for a young man. I chose browns and blacks and a hint of some color in the art work to give the room a masculine feel but a fun play on color with the artwork. I didn't want the room to be too fancy or too gender identified and was trying to create a room that would fit the needs of any man's age. I added darker furniture and lots of chrome and soft edges. The felt ottomans are always a great way to add more seating to a small room and the bunk beds with storage provide extra beds without taking up too much room. I also added a cool brown lounge chair that doesn't take up too much room and can easily be moved around. And last but not least I included a high impact rug that had a great modern pattern to it!
Please check out the list of designers and their boards here on Facebook. Click on the Charity Causes link for more information.
The charity project I am working on is called Freehab and at this stage our press release has not gone out but we are excited to share with you the people behind this amazing project.
Right now we are looking for deigners to come aboard and lots of bedroom and living room furniture. You can read more here on my blog post last week.
Enjoy the Oliohop and hope that you will donate to our cause!
