You Never Know

You never know when keeping a dream notebook will come in handy. I have a ton of pictures that I have been inspired by over the last few years. I didn't quite know what to do with them, so I finally decided to store them in an inspiration binder. I have it separated into different sections: Living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, baths, bedrooms, etc.
I never really thought I would actually use the photos but am happy to say that they are aiding me greatly in the design plans for our new home.
Here are a few photos from my dream binder...

































Blessings,
Nora

  1. OH! I wish I were that organized I had them all in a BINDER....they're just flopping around here and there.

    Can't wait to see how these dreams turn into reality with your new home!

  4. That is such a good idea! Last night I noticed a binder I bought about a month ago and how I still haven't used it. NOW, I have an idea on what to use it for! Thank you so much!

  5. That's a good way to keep you inspiration photos organized! I have so many that I keep mine in file folders organized by different categories.

  8. I have 4 volumes of a Dream Binder! Overkill? Nah. I truly refer back to them again and again. It's amazing the decisions that need to be made when it comes to re-doing a home and it's great to have a ready-made reference book of images that I adore, right at my fingertips!
    ps- I recognize most of the pictures you showed - they're also in my books! ;)

  9. Thank you for your encouraging words and your virtual hug. I deleted that post--I couldn't sleep feeling overexposed which is unusual for me. Unusual to restrict what I share. Your words mean a lot. Thank you :)
