When I start a design, I like to find an inspiration piece pull from. This could be a piece of artwork, fabric, photograph or any other item that I'm drawn to that has a pleasing color palette. I recommend this technique to people a lot when they ask me to help them figure out where to start in choosing colors.
With that in mind, I happened to come across this super-cool website while surfing this new (well at least new to me) world of blogs called Polyvore. If you aren't familiar, it's an online tool that allows you to create mood/style/inspiration boards using items from the web. It's really easy to use and seriously addicting for someone like me who enjoys designing. (A new guilty pleasure!!!)
I found this pretty pin board on a cool DIY blog called Red in Oz. It's homemade using fabric from Anna Maria Horner (another great resource for my files!).
Later, I came across the Sundra Blossom bedding at Anthropologie and that was it, let the designing begin! I've been glued to Polyvore creating a fun mood board for a girl's room for the last two nights!
I think it turned out pretty cool. How about you?
