I love to make mood boards, both for for my clients and myself, as it helps to visualize what the room will ultimately look like. While on BlogTourNYC, we had the pleasure of meeting the talent (Mark Cutler) and faces (Dorothee Fisher) behind a brand new company called nousDecor. More than just another mood board website, nousDECOR was born out of a notion that great design should be accessible to all budgets and all interiors.
The site is filled with links to plenty of products as you would expect, but also features design advice, a blog and some very unique resources to help you build your dream room. Looking for advice on what style of chairs will look best with your mid century sofa? Simply click on “Seeking Advice”. You can upload a photo of your room, ask a question and get advice from the other users as well as an expert.
Another unique feature of the site is called Real/Deal/Steal. Let’s say you see a designer inspiration room on the site like this one from Jonathon Adler that you would like to recreate in your own home.
The REAL price tag for this room? $11,190.00. A bit pricey for you? Simply click on DEAL and the site automatically readjusts to give you furniture and accessory options at a lower price point (while still maintaining the look the inspiration room). On an even tighter budget? Just click Steal and this room can be recreated for as low as $1,500.00.
Now to the $14,000 “style it to win it” give away. To welcome you to the nousDECOR community, nousDECOR is giving one lucky winner this $14,000 sofa from Bespoke Furniture.
