Inspiration Board: Red, Black & White Nursery

For a while now I've been looking for a good application for putting together rooms in an "inspiration board" format, so I could see how certain items I've found online would look with one another when placed in the same space.  I've marveled at the creativity and design talent of two of my favorite bloggers - Dina of Honey + Fitz and Darlene of Fieldstone Hill Design - who do some amazing work with these design/inspiration boards.  Dina kindly shared with me that she uses Adobe Photoshop to do her inspiration boards, but I haven't been brave enough to venture into that application's realm yet - I'd have to take a class...yes, back to school (of sorts).  Why a class?  Well you see, it's pretty expensive, so if you invest in it you need to know what you're doing so you can make use of it.

In my search to find something easier to use, I stumbled upon Polyvore which allowed me to easily put the below inspiration board together piece by piece.  Polyvore is great because it lists out your sources so you can easily reference where items came from - just click on the link following the item of interest in the list below the picture and it takes you to its website.  Oh, and it's a free application so I'll be playing with it more and more.  Please let me know what you think of my board and my Polyvore venture!  (And, no I'm not pregnant...I just love a great nursery design!)
