I’ve been following the Inspiration Boards group on flickr lately, and after browsing the group again last night, I thought blogging about it should be on the agenda for today. Who doesn’t love a beautiful mood board? A secret corner to dream? A creative nook to call your very own?
located in Vancouver, Canada. (What gorgeous paint on her walls.)
The Inspiration Boards group was initiated by Castanet, aka Lori Pickert, who now authors a blog under the same name. Here is just a tiny sampling of the inspirational imagery that you’ll find in both the group and the blog. And if you’d like to contribute a board of your own, you can join the group and submit photos of your own.
“The jack rabbit is by dawn. Marled bear is by mingling
of traveling rhinos. Japanese prints thrifted in Japan.“

Grace over at Design*Sponge pulled together some excellent gift guides, I especially like the Alba clock she found over at Generate. It’s fun to look through all the items in her round up, an endless treasure chest. Nice work, Grace!
Seems she’s on a roll with several guides in various price ranges, so if you haven’t already, click on over.

I was just getting my daily Oh Joy! fix when oops I clicked on a link and landed on her business website spotting this beautiful image below. As I clicked around some more, I discovered that we have a star on the rise – Joy recently designed a few rug patterns for Urban Outfitters (here and here). This is quite exciting, congrats Joy!
We love her prints, but Kirin & Co’s Lara Cameron recently listed her latest fabric creation: Ginkgo in Robins Egg Blue. Isn’t it pretty? Living in the northeast, I’ve had this long time love of all the fallen Ginkgo leaves that I find strolling the forest here. Even Boston Common has a few scattered about on the sidewalks and I always stop to admire them, photograph them, they have such an appealing shape. Don’t you love seeing ginkgo leaves in turquoise?
This is a limited edition run, so if you like it, click here for details. Only 10 left!
