inspiration on a wire.

with my home office no longer co-existing in my living room, i felt compelled to put up my ‘inspiration wire’ once again. it was odd in my old living room, and kind of out of place, but now, i’ve placed it right next to my desk, and above the new ikea ps sofa bed. i love adding new images to it, and rotating them out when the mood suits me! i originally found this wire at west elm (it’s a steel cable curtain rod), but you can find similar ones at ikea, as well.

  1. Victoria, I love how you’ve made the sofa cosy with lots of pillows. What’s it like to sleep on? I’m looking for a small sofabed for my office but I can’t see anything which doesn’t look really uncomfortable.

  2. kerry – i did that with vintage family photos (which is in the link above).

    lynne – i don’t know yet, as it’s new, but it’s pretty comfy to lay on. really just a futon mattress, but i think just fine for a guest bed for a night or two. :)

  3. I’m in love with the wire. My office is in my living room, and would look odd with the wire (like your old space I suppose). Darn. Thanks for sharing Victoria.

  4. i just love the top photo… what a beautiful inspirational spot you have made for yourself. i love it all, but i’m especially loving the pillows on your new sofa bed :)

  5. I’ve had one of those wires hanging around in it’s packaging for years. You have inspired me (with your inspiration wire) to dig it out and put it to good use!

  6. It’s so funny but I keep getting such amazing inspiration from you for my own office. Right now I just have my laptop on the dining room table…so I’m finally making the move to carve out a room for my office. I LOVE this idea of having a wire with inspiration…thanks yet again :)

  7. I’ve been thinking about how I convert my University halls bedroom in September so that I can use it as a working space as I am a fashion student – this is amazing! I love it!! x

  8. wow, your inspiration line looks so pretty! i’ve got one that’s been in the works for a few weeks, but i’m thinking i need to add to it after seeing yours!

  9. Did you purchase the clippies at west elm too? I like that it is sleek. Thinking about hanging odd sized concert posters like that! Thanks for the inspiration!

  10. I love all of your colors and photos. Twine and silver clips work, too. I made an entire wall collage of magazine tear-outs that inspire me and my style. I love it! Thanks for all of your awesome posts. You’re one talented woman :)

  11. Just wondering if anybody knew of a way to get an inspiration wire that taut AND also flush against the wall? We’re trying to add some posters to a wall but it needs to limit the holes in the wall itself and also have it not move very much (with a wire that isn’t flush against the wall, all the posters will flap around too much). Any thoughts?
