The above image is from amrandomupdates-decor via blog.effortless-style.com. Lots of tactile inspiration here, florals, fabrics, photos and magazine clippings. Such an explosion of delight and enthusiasm. It's as though the inspiration board was embracing the world. All of the objects and furnishings underneath the board only add to the liveliness. The re-upholstered French-style settee is wild and wonderful and gives a creative-fun feeling and exuberance to the space.
I recently went hunting to find beautiful and "inspiring" inspiration boards and found quite a few amazingly creative boards from designers, artists, stylists, business women, all which gave me more fabulous ideas on how to use these ingenious personal displays. A personal favorite of mine is below from www.trendey.com.
|www.trendey.com: Love the use of rustic chicken wire with an elegant gold frame, clothes pins, retro 60's chair and vintage desk. The hanging painter's apron is a great touch.|
Perhaps you need words and inspirational quotes to get you to the next level? What are you working on? What do you want more of?

Perhaps you want more color in your home and need a lively inspiration board filled with your favorite magazine clippings. Allow some of these inspiration boards to help guide you towards the next step of building your own world of beauty, joy and grace. And by all means, have some fun!
