There are lots of great programs out there for saving design inspiration ideas and DIY how-to's. I save my inspiration ideas to Instagram, Pinterest, Etsy, Ollioboard and Evernote most often. Plus, I have a RSS reader to access all of my favorite blogs on a daily basis (sanity breaks at work).
But what about saving ideas from that old fashioned thing called a magazine?!
Personally, I still love the feeling of those glossy pages in between my fingers, especially if I'm browsing through the pages while lounging on the beach. I usually have 2-3 magazines living on the coffee table at any given time so that company can peruse them while visiting (and myself for likely the fifth time).
I recently put together a design inspiration binder for a family who is building a home in Vermont. I've worked for this family for years. Stephanie, the wife and mother of three is my organization inspiration in so many ways - her home is immaculate. Stephanie has already started folders for each room in the new house, so all I had to do was transfer them into a new binder.
Stephanie likes to write directly on the magazine page, circling ideas/products that stand out to her. I personally like to attach a post it to the page so that I have ample room if I'm being descriptive about what caught my eye. Really, it's whatever works for you!
