Our first order of business (oh, who am I kidding - it was fun all the way) was an inspiration board to rein in all my messy ideas about decor. I was looking for sustainable, simple, inexpensive, colorful, textured and stylish (along with a ton of other things) and Emilia Jane really helped edit down my mishmash into two inspiration boards. Yeah, my mishmash was too awesome to be contained on just one board. (Either that, or my thoughts weren't stylistically coherent enough, but I choose to believe in the awesome.)
So, without further ado, here are my two Southern-California, bold-color, sustainable-chic inspiration boards to help guide me on my thrift store adventures. J and I lovelovelove the color palette from the second board and will be liberally stealing elements from them both.

For all you ladies who have unsuccessfully attempted the Martha pom poms (getting that signature poof is harder than you'd think. At least, that was my impression at Akbar's craft night. Or perhaps that was just the cocktails talking...) how much do you LOVE these pinwheels?! Easy, colorful, structured, travels well to the venue, did I mention easy, and DO YOU SEE THAT FIREPLACE?! We have a fireplace too, so I am doubly thrilled.
