An inspiration board is the perfect place to collect memorable items—photos, newspaper and magazine clippings, color and fabric swatches, concert ticket stubs, ribbons and other memorabilia. We recently came across a photo of us with Joan Steffen from “Decorating Cents,” one of HGTV’s early hit shows.
Fig & Frolic’s inspiration board was started when we opened our business. Every year we add more things to it A board you create reflects you and doesn’t have to satisfy anyone else.
Plus, it gets you going! One look, and you’re reminiscing or getting excited about making new things happen.
Where to put an inspiration board? Your bedroom, an office or craft space, a hallway, a reading nook, she-shed — anywhere you call your own.
What to put on it?
How about kids’ artwork, photos, banners, favorite quotes, sketches, color swatches, awards, small finds — things that have meaning or that you find inspiring.
Ideas for making an inspiration board:
Gather a variety of used bulletin boards and hang them together.
Paint a big square on the wall and use washi tape. If you’re lucky to have a set of beds springs, use it. You can go 3D with anything. Use clothespins as fasteners.
