Colorful Memo Boards

  1. Helena - A Diary of Lovely says:

    go for bold, i will def match your beautiful room!

  2. Annie says:

    With THREE blank cork boards, I'd pull the three top colors you love and use one on each board. I wouldn't necessarily go solid color, but maybe something that has a texture/subtle pattern — maybe a herringbone or linen or something… Then you could use a neutral ribbon or frame.

    Can't wait to see what you choose!

  3. cbn says:

    Go bright! And where did you get the fabric on the ottoman? It's fantastic!

  4. Sweet Nothings says:

    def bright!

    and um, i want the wall paper in the kate spade ad. le sigh.

  5. Lucky Girl says:

    Go with your instinct – and remember, its not like you have to live with it forever. My instinct says color and I'm guessing yours does too 🙂

  6. Lavender and Lilies says:

    the color! no question.

  7. Design Elements says:

    bright, bold, beautiful!

  8. Lindsay @ hlsd says:

    Color! I love orange, but I am kind of feeling yellow with that fabric you have. Either one would be fab though!

  9. Kendra says:

    What if you did a neutral color, but added an orange bias tape border?

  10. mydesignchic says:

    Your office is fabulous – loved the sneak peak. I have to vote for color…can't wait to see what you choose!

  11. Belen says:

    Color, go bright and bold! I just purchased that exact fabric for 2 little chairs in my master, so happy to see it on another piece, thanks for the visual!

  12. eyeseepretty says:

    I have two in my office that I plan to paint in a light, muted gold metallic paint. That way I get something more interesting but still fairly neutral!

  13. well-to-do says:

    Love this and love your blog!


  14. MyLittleHappyPlace says:

    Orange, Orange, ORANGE!!!

  15. Hamptontoes says:

    Go for orange…it is an inspiration board, right? Loving the peak of your space!

  16. Caroline @ The Feminist Housewife says:

    My natural instinct is to say that it is a little overwhelming to have a bright color AND lots of papers on a corkboard…However, with three of them, maybe do one a bright orange and the other two more subtle, but coordinating fabrics!

    Can't wait to see what you decide!

  17. courtneyoutloud says:

    Bold! Go bold I say! It isn't like the boards are true furniture pieces, so when you get tired of them swap out the fabric.

  18. Karena says:

    I agree with Annie, because I think the individual color boards will help you focus on your dreams!

    I vote for a bright and bold burlap or grass cloth.

  20. Laura says:

    Go with orange! It's such a hot color right now and easy to change if you get tired of it.

  21. barbara@hodge:podge says:

    First of al -love,love,LOVE the fabric on the armchair! I was also floored by the first photo from Kate Spade, my sister has the exact same chest of drawers!

  22. kellydayinteriordesigns says:

    Seriously love that ottoman! If I were you I would go with a neutral color for the boards-white or off white. Then I would frame the boards and paint the frames orange, green or yellow (all 3 the same).That way you get the best of both worlds-a neutral surface to allow your inspiration shots to shine and that shot of color that speaks to your personality. I love reading your blog and I am sure whatever you decide will look great!

  23. Katie says:

    i love it all! go for the bold!

  24. Loretta Fontaine (APPLESandRUBIES) says:

    Camila – I like Kendra's idea. Maybe something inspired by that gorgeous ottoman in your picture? A neutral pattern and then trimmed in some amazing bold colors? Can't wait to see what you do – I'm sure it will be fantastic!

  25. nycgirlygirl says:

    I just did a lovely chair in this fabric! Love it and your blog…

  26. ashley says:

get inspired with our own home tour


My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
