Today I have a fun new site for you all to dream up your own spaces, pull your favorite items together & create your own mood boards with just a few simple clicks.  Oh & two $500 Gift Cards to Ballard Designs as well… More on that part in a minute!
You all might be familiar with Polyvore as a fashion site, where you can pull outfits together right on your screen.  Well did you know they now have a home section too??!!  The great thing is you can pull images (& links) from all of your favorite sites & you can group them together on screen to see how they look together. 
You can create Sets of items that all still retain their links & information so you can always go back to the original source to purchase them (as seen from a little screenshot…)
Or you can create a collection of items as well… which is basically just that.  A collection of your favorite pieces be it for a room, a theme or a category.  The choices are all up to you!
You can create your own & browse thousands of others collections & sets too. 
Along with some other very talented bloggers/designers, I am joining up with Polyvore to spread the word about this great resource by becoming a part of Project Decorate.  Project Decorate profiles each of us & we then pull a collection together to express our own personal style.
You can see my responses to these questions here.  Seriously adore Celerie Kemble… le sigh.
Now comes the fun part!  I pulled together a little collection of my own & described the look as Layered Living.  You all know I love a layered & eclectic space with a little “Trad” thrown in…  Well now it’s your turn to show me & Polyvore how you would interpret #LayeredLiving!!
All you have to do is create your own Set using at least one of the pieces I selected along with your own choices & submit it to Polyvore using this link!  At the end of the contest, Polyvore & I will select our top two Sets & each of them will win a $500 Gift Card to Ballard Designs (thanks to Polyvore!)
Fun right?!?!  So what are you waiting for?!  Go start designing your own #LayeredLiving Space!!
