Inspiration Boards

You can tell a lot about a person by what inspires them... what colors they are attracted to, photos, postcards, letters, scraps of fabric, paint swatches.  The boards themselves are inspiring and I've seen some very creative ways in which to display what you love too.  There are so many to choose from including online boards that you can create from websites like Pinterest, Google, and Tumbir or ones you make your self.  I am a very visual person and like to look at my inspiration hanging in the room where I do most of my work.  I've found some inspiration boards that I thought were very creative and pretty too!  Take a peek!

I'm a bird lover so I found this inspiration board appealing to me...back to nature.

 Rachel of Shabby French For Me 's Inspiration Board (shown below) is who gave me the idea to create my own.   Thanks for being my inspiration Rachel! I'm sure I will be adding more items throughout the coming year.

Not only do these boards awaken our creativity but they also visually inspire us and tell the story about the people who created them.  Do you have a favorite?  Have you created one for yourself?  What would  yours look like?


  1. Loved this post! Im so glad you are inspired!! xo

  2. These are wonderful, Kris. I really liked the Martina Crowe-Hew one. It is unique, and shows so many different things on there. The Shabby French one is pretty too. Yes, I do have one in my kitchen. The fabric has a black and off-white design, very french looking too. I keep all my favorite sayings, pictures and notes on there. The colors on yours are so soft and pretty.

  3. I have'nt created one. Mine would be utter chaos, and constantly changing. I get inspiration from so many places. Sometimes I find it hard to focus on one theme, or idea.

  4. Great post. I like the chicken wire one but I think I would still use a cork board and I might do that this weekend.

  5. Love these inspiration boards Kris - I adore Pinterest - could spend hours in there he he :)
    Have a great day,

  6. All of those boards are really wonderful, dear Kris. Indeed, I also like the board with bird and butterfly. It's also not too crowded *lol*.
    Thank you for showing these beautiful inspiration.
    Warm regards,

  7. My favourite, totally unbiased, is yours! M x

  8. I need to get myself an inspiration board. I save bits of this and that on my computer and hardly ever look at them. Out in the open I could gaze at them every day.

  9. one day I have to get into Pininterest
    I am delighted to see that I am not the only one who loves a certain amount of disorder .. although I have to admit, these all seem like ORGANIZED or well thought through chaos!

  10. Kris, oh dear, how has it been since i came here! i have missed so much stuff! i absolutely adore this post; i was thinking of doing an inspiration board for my studio so this is a great place to start... And, how are you?
