Olioboard: Moodboard App

June 9, 2010

I wrote about Olioboard today over at Real Simple but in case you didn’t see it I have to show and tell here too! Olioboard is a new web app for creating your own moodboards online that you can save, share and also click on products to shop for them. It’s such a clever app that I’m sure many of you will like. I bet this will be one of those, “Oh why did Holly have to tell me about THIS?” websites though because I imagine it could be a major time robber. But hey, have fun (and free!) and perhaps after trying it a bit you can let me know what you think.

Olioboard: Moodboard App

Note: The above board was not created by me, it was made by a Olioboard member.

I just created an account called decor8, if you want to connect with me there. See you at Olioboard!

    Oh wow another reason to spend further hours on the internet! Thanks for the link :) This looks really fun. The moodboard is beautiful! The limey green cut-out tray at the top really caught my eye.. so lovely. (At least I think it’s a tray!)

    Oh Holly this is perfect timing as I was looking for best ways to do my mood boards as well. Yey! xo

  • Reply Sheilah MacSporran June 9, 2010 at 12:41 pm

    Glad to hear everyone is excited to try it out!!

    A heads up that the olioboard server is getting pretty bogged down with all of the people going to the site today. It may be a bit slow — we’re working on speeding it up though!

    Thanks and looking forward to seeing everyone’s creations :)

    Awesome! There’s actually another tool out there that pulls out the background white space from the objects so you can layer objects on top of one another called Polyvore- it’s main objective is fashion but I like using it for staging interdior design and parties:

    So glad you shared this! It sounds awesome (albeit addicting) :)

  • Reply Ludmila {} June 9, 2010 at 3:48 pm

    I’m sure I’ll LOVE this software! I just tried it and it’s not working though :(. I guess I’ll get back to it later. Thank you for sharing, Holly!

    Olioboard is back up and running folks! Thx for the patience :)

    It appears we underestimated the effect of a post on AT and Decor8. Wowzers! The server was moving like a snail.

    Let us know if you’re experiencing any other issues. Otherwise, have fun!!

    • Reply decor8 June 10, 2010 at 3:07 am

      Sheilah – Yeah and I wrote about it on Real Simple too. LOL. I guess it’s a good “problem” to have though. :)

    Has anyone compared this to Polyvore? Pros? Cons? Mood boards are such fun…and always fun to see other people’s! -Linsey

  • Reply Susan June 9, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    So much fun! I’m so left brain, but I’m trying to cultivate my right brain. I’ve never made a mood board before, but I’ll be making lots now!

    Olioboards sounds like a lot of fun! I have to try it. Have been searching for a way to use all pictures collected in different colour schemes and themes. Thanks for this!

    Oops sorry, just noticed that my old URL is still in when commenting on your site. The post above! Sorry! Its a broken link. I was forced to change my blog URL due to a legal process against (who does’nt really sell interior design, and I lost thousands of visitors…) however you can find me at nowadays!

    And again thanks for sharing the idea of the Oliboard!

    Soooooooooooooooooooo excited to do this! I spend way too much time looking at ideas online. Maybe this will help me focus on a plan. :) :) :)

  • Reply Erika June 10, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    Yes, it must be very addictive to create mood boards like this :) And as you said, a time robber…I know what you are talking about, because a month ago I create an account in a brazilian website called “byMK”, where you can create a tons of looks and see which brands are the clothes, accessories, etc. It looks like Polyvore site…It´s really an addiction! I will check it out Olioboard and make and account probably…It´s like paper dolls when I was a kid, and with Olioboard it will be like “decorate” the dollhouse…It´s fun :)

    Olioboard is a timeSAVER for me! I love that I can do it at night-owl hours and even buy a lot of the products. It can be a great way to get my clients talking about project decisions, too! I just created my first one:
