Check out these two inspiration walls…


One is a fabulous overlapping collage of color. The other is an exhibit of order and creativity. Which one do you like the best?

UPDATE! This comment by Brian Miller made me laugh out loud!!
He said: “wow. mine would be the one that looks like it was put up with a shotgun. a little here there and everywhere. some interesting things too when you magnify these pics.”

Souces: Top collage first appeared on the beautiful Decor 8 blog and the bottom collage is from the lovely Oh. Hello Friend.

    The top photo pretty much sums me up completely. Organized mess…

  2. chicknamedhermia says:

    The top one is more like me, but fundamentally I like my aesthetics to be somewhat orderly, so I'd like a picture of the two: a couple of those lines going across the wall, but with some chaoses collages inbetween! 😛

  3. Mrs. Blandings says:

    Inspiration comes to me in a jumble, so I vote top as well.

  4. Karolin says:

    Very lovely

  5. Tina Tarnoff says:

    I love the disorder of the top one, and the pink tone of the bottom one. I especially like the rows of written cards and notes with just one black and white portrait card, like a lovely intruder. Gorgeous.

  6. Missa says:

    They are both gorgeous, but I'm definitely drawn to the haphazardness of the top one. Interesting how this choice can say so much about a person's personality as well as their aesthetic preferences 🙂

    By the way, I just discovered your blog and can already tell I'll be hooked!

  7. Rebecca Lynch Photography says:

    I like both, but the top sums it up for me, an organized mess.

  8. caroline @ patagonia gifts says:

    I think I prefer the second one. there is enough mess in my head. no need to add more 🙂 lovely inspiration! xo

  9. SHOKOOFEH says:

    oh I love the second one!
    very inspiring to me!


  10. Simply Mel says:

    #2 gets my vote – gorgeous!

  11. iva yaneva says:

    oh, I just love the one at the bottom! I wish I had one like this 🙂

  12. sar says:

    the first one!!

  13. jonas wunderman says:

    I love the top one, but the second one is fairly "me" 🙁

  14. nath says:

    it's got to be the top one, it made my heart race a little faster. and think, have i got time to start an inspiration wall this evening…?

  15. Brian Miller says:

    wow. mine would be the one that looks like it was put up with a shotgun. a little here there and everywhere. some interesting things too when you magnify these pics.

  16. Shaddy says:

    I wish I could say I like the top photo but unfortunately clutter makes my mind feel cluttered.

  17. Lil says:

    I've got a disordered mind and heart so I definitely go with the top one.

  18. LouDuk says:

    Mine would have to be the top collague. I am actually putting up a very similar collague, of things I have been collecting for years, this week in my closet.

  19. Viewtiful_Justin says:

    I love the freedom of the first one, but I like the presentation of the second one better.

    It's a toss up!

  20. Neltner says:

    Just stopped by for a bit of fresh air and calm time from our the dear Lady Muse:) I would have to say that the first option is how I feel – but I'm striving to be the second…maybe I shouldn't fight my natural tendencies so much – both are beautiful:)

  21. tracy mitchell says:

    both lovely, but if i had to choose, i think i prefer the top space. the jumble in my head more closely resembles that one.

    have i mentioned how i love your blog? you're fabulous darling.

  22. hollie says:

    I am moving house tomorrow and am just about to go ad take down my inspiration wall! At the moment it very much looks like the top one, but I am hoping when I re-assemble it in my new house it will be more orderly like the bottom one (hopefull I can keep it that way!) I love a creative mess, but I'm really craving order and simplicity, living and working in a mess can be draining!


  23. Penny says:

    I WISH I were like the second picture. Alas, I am the first pic–all crazy scattered from top to bottom. But the second sure is pretty!

  24. Jen says:

    I have to agree with half – the top half is what my board looks like – a big explosion (yes shotgun style I agree with Brian Miller) But I do love the orderly hanging of inspiration on the second… washing on the line – I am inspired to aspire too – dear Tina, thank you for making my brain twirl in delight.

  25. Little Gray Pixel says:

    I'm too much of a neat freak to have the scattered collage on my walls; I would feel the constant urge to prune and straighten everything, so I'm definitely drawn more to the second one.

  26. Maverick Malone says:

    Love these! The first one would be mine…I don't like things all in order, etc.

    Cool post 🙂

  27. Black says:

    I like both. The pinks in the second are so lovely. But I think I am more like the first messy type.

  28. orange sugar home says:

    both are very cool. I think I lean towards the more orderly one but in reality it would come out looking like the first example.

  29. Mag says:

    I like the second inspiration wall. peaceful & orderly!!

  30. puglyfeet says:

    This is a tough one since both are equally appealing. But, I'll go with the latter — the organized one.

  31. Zuli says:

    I like te second one!

  32. Rebecca (Dog-Eared) says:

    definitely the first! it looks more like it was compiled as its creator thought of ideas rather than all at once. more authentic, in my opinion 🙂

  33. cerelina Jewelry says:

    I love both the pictures… but the top one is more me !!
    Organize mess !!

  34. brandi milne says:

    I heart inspiration walls. I want to cover my entire place with inspiration!!

    Thanks for sharing!!

  35. Design Scouting says:

    love this!
