I've been thinking about where to begin in sharing about our new home and projects and future ideas and it occurred to me I should begin where all things begin, inspiration. I started making an inspiration board a few years ago and it used to sit on the back of our bedroom door so I'd see it before I closed my eyes and first thing in the morning. I found it became impossible to not wake up inspired by the images I had there. My pictures tended to vary and focus on a wide array of goals. One was a picture of an organized closet, one was a quote on entertaining to prompt me to socialize more. I had a picture of Jennifer Aniston doing yoga, and a picture of Angelina Jolie speaking out. I'm sure the occasional guest saw this collage and thought I was some freaky stalker of Brad Pitt's love life. Actually I even had a pic of Gwenyth Pawltrow in this gorgeous Tom Ford gown. Maybe Brad Pitt and I do share the same taste in women. None the less, it inspired me in some way and I found whatever the image was at some point I'd feel I had accomplished the goal and would add on a new image. I'm very visual so this worked beautifully for me.
So I thought I'd share my new inspiration board that is currently in the guest room/ what I call "the Jane Austen reading room" because I'm pretentious like that. It was a cute framed bulletin board I picked up at a yard sale for $7. It currently is filled with ideas for organizing, fashion, the guest room, and family. I always like to have a picture up of a happy couple or family because it makes me happy and reminds me of what's important.
I've also included a few gorgeous boards that rather put mine to shame but offer great ideas if you're in the mood for your own inspiration!!
Love, J xx
