Don’t Be Bored… Be Board!

When it comes to clothes and accessories, I’ve got a pretty good idea as far what my personal style looks like. I can see a cute top from across the store and know, “That’s me!” But when it comes to furniture and decor, I’ve learned that my tastes are a little bit all over the place. As I prepare to decorate my new house, I’ve been collecting and collaging images to get a concise idea of what style best represents me. In fashion, designers often create a mood board to decide what themes, shapes and colors will inspire their upcoming collection. I’ve decided to take a note from the fashionistas and create a vision board to help navigate my plans for my casa.

Vision, inspiration or mood boards are a good practice for everyone whether you’re decorating, designing or not. Besides being fun, it’s a way to get in touch with your creative side and understand your likes and dislikes. It’s important to discover these things because it’s personal and what makes you, you. I’d like to not only walk into my closet, but also my home and think, “That’s me!”

Your board can be a cork board with pins, a poster covered in tape, it can be whatever you need it to be! As much as I love tearing out pretty photos from magazines and collecting swatches from fabric stores, it’s too time consuming and unrealistic for me right now. Instead I’ve been shooting photos with my phone and taking screen shots of great spaces I find online. If I’m in a restaurant and I love the way the chairs or the bathroom sinks look, I’ll take a picture and pin it to my digital board. It has become a beautiful project that I plan on continuing even after my house is done. I can’t wait to see my vision come to life!

What’s on your board? If you have a photo, please share it in the comments! I’d love to see.

  1. This one is on my home board on Pinterest – I think it’s both light, cozy and colorful. However, I think there should by bookshelves too 🙂

    ok well back to this article 🙂 I absolutely love our style both within fashion and decoration+furniture. I really love this earthy and relaxing style, and I am the kind of person who likes like to mix this style with some pastel colours 🙂
