Inspiration Boards and Girls Night

Okay, so I am hosting girls night next Monday and I had to come up with a theme. I like to do the theme thing, even though we are perfectly alright to just sit with a glass of wine in hand and a plate of goodies on our lap, while we just chit-chat.

But no, I never let them off that easy. I always make them take on some sort of project and work for the food. Not that my food is all that good or worth working for. All that said. Here is the project. Inspiration Boards.
They are basically poster-sized collages of pictures and/or words that feature your goals and aspirations or anything in life that you really want to have or achieve. It could just be images that inspire you on to better living.

I made the board above but I will be making another one on girls night. I have stacks of magazines and several pairs of scissors just waiting for them to dive in and make their dreams a reality. Okay maybe I am getting a little carried away but at the very least it will be fun.
Below I have a few pics that might just make it on my board. But then again maybe not. I will give you all a full report on how the night transpires sometime next week.

This interior is so yummy. I love the elegance and rich pink colors off set by the creamy white. Gorgeous!

This is a little bit closer to the kind of decor I have. Little more simplified and modern. I do love the elegance of the previous room and may someday make a change in that direction. I love the bold colors in this room above; so cheery and stimulating.

This room is so me. I could go for this in a heart beat. The rich pinks and the romantic red. Love the paintings and the couch. Awesome. I would ditch the pillows for something a little less contemporary. Rich colors are so romantic. Love it!

Now we get to the location section of the board. I would love to be on the beach, feet planted firmly in the sand, gazing out at the oceans surf crashing in on the shore. Care to take a dip?

Here we come to the dreamy part of my board. Since in this dream I live in an ocean front home; I have decided to move my beautiful bed out to the beach for the night and listen to the surf while I sleep.

Here is a sweet little cottage that I could live with. I love the happy yellow color and the intricate details that you just don't see in modern day homes. This would due for my little retreat on the beach. Join me for a goblet of wine or glass of ice tea on the porch and we will watch the sun melt into the sea :)

Thanks for dreaming with me today. Now back to your regularly scheduled life.
