We’ve all seen so many great examples of fabric bulletin boards, but here’s a roundup that I’m inspired by for the new office. Bulletin boards so practical! And they can be so pretty. I’m building two panels that will lay vertically up against the wall behind the desk – and they’re almost ready for their reveal.
Here are more great examples to fit just about every style:
How awesome is that gold framed bulletin board? It was likely an old mirror that they converted. I had an old dresser mirror that I turned into a map board, mirrors make great bulletin board frames.
A fabric lined bulletin board could be as simple as a classic burlap or tweed – or as ornate as a toile or suzani! Try lining a simpler bulletin board in nailhead trim or ribbon.
That little needlepoint ring is an interesting take on a fabric board (I’m assuming you’d cut your cork to fit the ring?) and here’s a tutorial for unframed fabric panels (like the lower bottom right).
Now back to work on mine!

I’ve been on the search for some fun accessories to update a few of our rooms and came across plenty of great ideas in the under $50 range that I thought I’d share.
From a bohemian tapestry for the bed or wall to a vintage ceramic platter for jewelry to a wooden ladder to layer throws on, I love mixing different design styles (like shabby chic with contemporary) to create a unique blend.
Clockwise: Union Jack Banner Wall Art - Urban Outfitters $48, Lenox Candlesticks – Amazon $35, Devina Tapestry - Urban Outfitters $38, Bamboo Ladder Honey – Urban Home $40, Saguaro Tray – Anthropologie $30, Metal Storage Basket – Urban Home $30, Lotus Dinner Ware – Anthropologie $4-10, Spheres Lamp – Pier 1 $30, Iron Sun Burst Mirror – Amazon $40, Perennial Pillow Cover – West Elm $30
I like the idea of incorporating different metals into a space. Most rooms have plenty of wood and fabric accents but mixing in an additional material like a metal mirror, basket or shiny table lamp adds a new dimension. And for under $50!
Now back to online ‘window’ shopping.

I found this stunning picture on The Party Dress and loved it so much I went on the search for more gorgeous peacock finds. The colors are rich and beautiful — perfect for fall without being the traditional palette. I love the jeweled napkin ring above and am wondering if I can recreate on my own, could be a fun project. Plum, fuscia, emerald green, burgundy, cerulean blue… all beautiful!
So much inspiration for any kind of celebration — I would love to see this turned into a beautiful bridal shower! Follow the jump for the where-to-find for this inspiration board. Read more »
