I Like Inspiration Walls

Ever since I can remember, I have always had a wall, a cork-board, or a bit of space, sometimes I’ve even used my fridge; but always somewhere in my home where I can pin pictures, postcards, mementos, photos, even torn pages of magazines.

It all started back in high school, I remember covering my bedroom walls from corner to corner with pictures from my Elle magazines.  I don’t know why I started doing this, possibly because it was more interesting than white paint, and possibly because my parents would not let me paint my room the colour I wanted.  It seemed like a good way to bring colour to my room without it being permanent.
I remember covering a whole wall in a kitchen of my rented flat once.  I used gorgeous pictures of food and dream travel destinations, it really zjuszed up my boring kitchen wall.

Some of the postcards and pictures I have collected are starting to look a little worn, the edges are curling and the white of the page has turned yellow because I have been holding onto some of them for over a decade.  I can’t find any pictures of my bedroom room at home, but I do have one of my room at college for you, (talk about a time-warp!)

Apart from being a massive Sting fan (I still am), if you look carefully, you can see that I was also a Winona Ryder fan (I still am).  For me, this photo represents a moment in time.  Freaky!

Whether you call it an inspiration wall, a mood board, or inspiration board, call it what you like, but it all serves the same purpose.  It is a place to put things that are meaningful to you. 

I decided to do a little surfing and see if other people out there made inspiration walls and I found that there are plenty of people out there who do!

Since moving into our home in three months ago, my blog seems to have become my inspiration wall.  I still love to have an actual inspiration wall though, even if it is smaller than usual.  But it’s always evolving anyway, that’s the whole point of an inspiration wall.  

Think I may need a bigger cork-board.
