collage crazy

...okay. I admit it. I'm a bit obsessive sometimes. I think all stylists, designers + creative-types are a tad OCD from time to time.

This weekend, I stumbled upon fieldstone hill's blog post on signature-style-boards. And I was hooked. I just had to do one of my very own style-boards. Of course, one collage didn't quite feel like enough, so I did two.

A style-board (or inspiration board) is a way of summing up your design style, pulling together images of inspiration that define your style. I loved the exercise and I think you might to.  It's a brilliant way to hone in on your loves so that when you're actually looking to tweak your interior or enhance your wardrobe, you know what to look for.

Here's how my style-boards turned out...


Defining your design style


Defining your design style

So...what do you think?

As you can tell from my style-boards, I love MIXING textures, like raw wood + high-gloss WHITE...I love NATURAL linens, LAYERS, faux FUR, LUCITE, CANDLES, ORGANIC elements, aqua + TURQUOISE, white + PINK, BRACELETS + STATEMENT RINGS, hints of MID-CENTURY modern, BOHEMIAN influences ... and TWINKLE lights.

What's your design style?

Click on over to this link for the quick how-to and make one or two of your own.  And PLEASE SHARE.  I'd love for you to comment below and share yours (You can upload it to one of your pinterest boards and copy + paste the link). 

THANKS for stopping by.  I hope this inspires you to define your style just a little bit more.

Have an incredible week!... and don't forget to COMMENT below. I seriously do a happy dance when I know people are actually reading these random thoughts of mine.

  2. Hi Patti. I just created a real mini (4) picture collage. It was fun, although I need more design & decor images. I am into so many things I forget I have a pinterest account! :)

    I'm following several of your boards on Pinterest and also following you on instagram. If you like I'm JZU on pinterest and I have 2 accts of instagram one is famousjody which is more personal and the other I just started and it's under La Decor Enthusiast. You can see my mini collage on pinterst. I hope to make more in the future.

  6. So much to admire in your lovely style boards - I too like mixing textures and I'm a fan of neutrals in my wardrobe and home (with a pop of colour here and there sometimes!) So pleased to have stumbled across your lovely blog which is full of inspiration and I'm delighted to be your newest follower!

  7. Love your choice of images! I can't wait to create my own inspiration board. I am also drawn to a neutral color palette, especially for the home. There's something so natural and fresh about it.
