I have been telling you for the last few months that I love tools that help you get inspired, and also help you visualize your home ideas before you buy them. Olioboard has been a great online resource and I’ve been working with them as well as many of the community members of the Olioboard Fan Room to bring my Stagetecture readers and their members more exposure and you more ideas for fabulous home design.
Two exciting events are occurring on Stagetecture that I’m thrilled to tell you about!

Olioboard Inspiration #1
‘Storage for a Diva’ – Alison Hayes
I love Hollywood Glam so I am always looking for interesting storage solutions that are fun, sexy, and unexpected for my home. If you lack the additional closet space but have an available wall, recreate this glamour look with these simple organizational items displayed on this virtual design board.
Empty Wall Space –
Need more closet room? Utilize a wall in your bedroom with simple storage units from IKEA Add wall ornaments such as corbels beneath the cabinets and place each unit at different heights to invoke architectural interest.
Visual Impact –
Make a plain wardrobe exciting and fun with a wall mural. Websites like Murals Your Ways can create any image in any size of your choice. It is a simple “peel and stick” method and creates a “WOW” factor in your room.
Unique Shelving –
Show off your favorite pairs of shoes with elegance. I found these gorgeous wall mounted shoe racks on a website that sells dress maker forms. The scrollwork is beautiful, artistic, unexpected, and makes a beautiful display statement.
Dual Purpose –
The red siren ottoman does double duty with storage and provides additional seating. Dress up your ottoman by adding some fun pillows.
Sexy Accents –
I choose red and black accents for its glamorous sex appeal. The high gloss red mirror has a modern twist of baroque and energizes the space with charm. It is placed above a sleek transitional black console table that not only provides adequate drawer space but has timeless appeal. Finish your organized wall with exciting light fixtures and accents, such as featured lamps, a star shaped chandelier and pretty storage boxes.
Alison Hayes has a Master of Arts Degree in Interior Design and works as a Commercial Interior Designer for the Healthcare Sector. She often uses Olioboard as an outlet for her creative energies and has won numerous virtual board design contest which have been featured all over the world.
