D.I.Y Mood-Board


A while ago, a friend gave me a mirror she didn't want anymore and for the past few months, it's just been sitting on the floor next to my piano with absolutely no use. I'll sometimes use it when I'm doing my hair or something if I'm too lazy to stand up but apart from that, it was going to waste. Yesterday, I decided to get all Pinterest-y and make it into a mood-board when I was marathoning Gossip Girl and I'm actually really happy with the results. I scoured my Pinterest (which is wonderful, by the way) for some of my favourite photos and printed them off, then cut up some different wrapping papers and then just blu-tacked them all to the mirror. It took a few attempts to get the layout right but I love the way it turned out. It's kinda like a physical Pinterest board. 

When I was choosing the photos, I picked ones that inspired me and ones that reflect the overall aesthetic that I'm loving at the moment. Hannah Murray had to make an appearance, as well as Xavier Dolan. There had to be a photo of Copenhagen somewhere, and I needed to have at least one photo by the amazing Fanny Latour-Lambert. Because I used blu-tack, I can easily change the photos as my tastes and style changes but for now, it really reflects what I'm inspired by. What do you think? Do you have a mood-board?

Lots of love, 
Cat

  2. This mood board is so pretty!!!
    I don't have a mood board but I have a notice board and a wall of stuff. They don't exactly have inspiration on them, but they remind me of who I am and what I love . So I guess they sort of count. xx

  5. That looks lovely! I made a mood board a few years ago with cutouts from magazines, stickers, pressed flowers and a guitar pick. I love it but since then I've grown and changed a little so I think I'll make a new one that inspires my life now. ^_^
