On summer nights when I find myself being a homebody, I like to spend my time on long-term projects. Since I already had a three-quarters packed bag from orientation the week before, I spent the night before I left perusing through Michael's and Barnes and Noble.

After I read my magazines, I like to stack them in different areas of my room for stylish decor and/or later use whenever I'm experiencing a dry spell of inspiration. I decided to compile some of my favorite looks, graphic layouts, and eye candy onto one board for daily inspiration.

My closet was the perfect place for the vibrant board. The location is prime for its perfect fit and usefulness for whenever my clothes racks don't satisfy, I can simply turn around for a quick idea.

If you take a good look, you'll see many reoccurring themes like my ultimate girl crush, Leighton Meester, bold large texts, yummy foods, a Fashion Night Out ad, one of Anna Wintour's letter from the editor, and the elegance and class of Elle and Vogue that balances beautifully with Nylon's more edgy (artsy if you will) aesthetic.

So I'll be keeping inspiration board number one at home and creating a new one for college. That way it's fresh, up to date, and probably shrunken down in size for the sake of limited dorm wall space. I've been promising a bedroom post for quite some time now, so here's your first preview starting with one of my favorite rooms in any house--the closet.

It's good to be home.
