Woman, you are way more ambitious than I am. I haven’t even mustered up the energy to take our gifts out of their boxes and figure out where to put them. Plus, my husband and I have such opposing tastes – it was hard enough picking out silverware. I cannot even fathom how much “fun” it will be when we start trying to decorate our entire house.

Wow belle! I would totally do this with you…. once I have a home to decorate! Haha. Hopefully in 4 months or less.

Ah!  I thought I was the crazy OCD lady for doing this, I’m so glad to hear someone else keeps and organizes all their home decor inspiration.  I have cut outs from a million catalogs and I save images from online.  I hadn’t thought of business card pages though, that’s pretty handy for smaller things, thanks!

@bellenga:  This sounds like an awesome idea!  How or where do you get your design inspiration pieces?

 

I have been wanting to start a journal/log of all the updates I do.  I want to have a place to keep all the paint samples and stuff in one place so when I’m shopping I can easily compare say the couch fabric to a potential throw pillow.

This is actually an awesome idea… So far I have just made a bunch of folders on my computer and started saving pics. I am totally going to do this…

I should probably wait until AFTER the wedding to dive head-first into a binder project though =)

I’m a waiting lady, so it’d be a Waiting Inspiration book,LOL, but I SO needed this idea. We just got the furniture for the living room and I am totally blank as to what to do with it. A blank slate is scary. In that old apartment I had tons of ideas for the house…now…I have NO CLUE.

@bellenga: Checking in to see how things are going for you?  I started a blog to go over some stuff I am doing.  I did a post about a new patio we put in the front yard and picking out new knobs for our kitchen.  I’m working on a few more projects this weekend that I will post next week.  PM me if you want the site.  

 

Is there any way you can share what you are doing? I was reading on YHL about how they pick out inspiration images and keep them organized and I might start that as well.

I love this idea! We have owned our house for a year now but since we got engaged a few days after putting the offer in on the house all of our energy has been devoted to wedding planning. Once the wedding is over in December I want to dive head first into making our house a home. I have such a mess of stuff I love the idea of organizing all of the clippings and magazines I have into one cohesive space.

Just as a side note is anyone besides me lamenting the passing of so many good home decor magazines? It is a shame so many became casualties of the recession. I miss them 🙁
