There are so many different places to gather inspiration from which can be great, but can also be overwhelming if you don't know where to look. I'm giving you my complete guide to all of the sources I use when I need some inspiration. I hope you enjoy this blog post and can get inspired too!
This is the first place I go to for inspiration when I'm working on a project. Probably the most common place to find inspo today since there are so many users and there is constantly new ideas and images. I love Pinterest because I can follow brands and bloggers that I love and see what they're up to and what they are pinning. If you didn't know I'm on Pinterest too! I have included a widget of my Pinterest account and would love if you'd follow me!
Magazines & product catalogues
I think magazines are slowly becoming a thing of the past since most of the content we see is online. This is still one of my favourites because nothing beats flipping through each page and seeing inspiring images or articles. I recently picked up The Magnolia Journal and loved wide range of content from home decor trends to recipes and travel. My favourite product catalogue is definitely Ikea because their furniture is so versatile and customizable. I love seeing how you can transform each piece and the inspiring articles inside. I love the wide variety of content from beautiful interiors to how we can reduce food waste. The latest catalogue is available now online and you can order the hard copy too. I love seeing a fresh take on my favourite Ikea products.
Before I started a blog of my own I loved looking at other design blogs and the many tips, tricks, and ideas they have to offer. Whether it be a fashion blog or a design blog certain things like colours, textures, and home decor all inspire me. Here is a little list of some of my favourite blogs that I look to for inspo.
There is nothing like travel to inspire you and give you new ideas. Although this may not be the most cost effective option you don't have to go far to get inspired. It doesn't matter if you're travelling halfway across the world or the other side of town, there is something that will be sure to catch your eye and leave a lasting impression on you. Every time I come back from a trip I get inspired by the fashion, architecture, and lifestyle of a different place. It's also so much fun to experience a different place and culture.
HGTV is a fabulous source for design ideas. I could sit and watch that channel for hours and never get bored! It's interesting to see different designers and their take on different spaces. I was a little heartbroken when I heard that Fixer Upper was not coming back next year, but there are so many other shows to watch. A few of my personal favourites are: Fixer Upper, Love it or List it Vancouver, and Restored by the Fords.
