Polyvore - Ok...I Get It, and I'm Hooked!

Friday, April 3, 2009

It's been a slow afternoon so I finally decided to check out Polyvore.com to see what all the fuss is about, and I "get it" now. It's pretty darn cool. Here's what I've created so far.


Serene Living Room 1

Ok...my fictional room isn't super impressive, but it's enough to make me want to go home and tweak my living room. Oh wait....maybe Polyvore wasn't a good discovery...drat :).

Have a great weekend everyone!

********************************************************
I edited this post because I kept playing around in Polyvore and I discovered they have Anthropologie stuff in there! So I had to create an Anthropologie room, right (good heavens...somebody stop me!)? This room is a little more bold than I could live with, but it's fictional...so I can just admire it :).


Anthropologie


If I come back with another room, I think I'll need an intervention.

I've seen it around, too, but it confuses me...maybe now I'll have to give it a try! ; )

AnNicole @ OurSuburbanCottage said...

Yeah it kind of confused me too, so I never took the time to bother with it. I finally figured out how to use their pictures. Now I need to figure out how to pull in my own pictures.

Hi Annicole! Thanks for the great tip on that website. I'm off to check it out right now!!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Cool! Now I know what I'll do tonight after the girls go to bed while the hubs watches TV. :)

Catherine@Simply Natural said...

I must admit I've never even heard of it. Must go and have a peek at it!
Have a great weekend AnNicole.

I've never tried it, but I like what you did to your rooms. I'll have to check it out.

I love your blog. I am a lurker. But have come out of hiding to say...I am totally hooked on Polyvore too. LOVE it.

Christy Wagner said...

Holy Cow! I could TOTALLY live with that Anthro room! Great job!

Victoria@WhimsybyVictoria said...

How great! I have design software that I use in helping clients design their rooms, so much fun! I just came across your blog from Thrifty Decor Chick and love it! I am all about a great bargain and good design. I am now a follower and look forward to more posts.

Hugs,

I'm in love with the blue chair in the second photo...Simply must have :) Anthropologie is a favorite of mine!!!

Tammy said...

I've got to check out Polyvore. Looks cool. And I love the round rug in the second room. Awesome.

Tara said...

Oh no, you should not have shown me this! I can't wait to give it a try!

What a cool thing; I think I'm getting it. I just clicked on the link, but I thought it was all about clothes. But, I think I might be wrong. I need to return. Thanks for sharing,-susan

I have gotten as far as signing in to Polyvore, never getting further than that! No time, no time... I love your rooms, though. That mirror would look super cool in my foyer, and that chair (in red) would really work for me too!

I've never heard of polyvore before! I love the Anthropologie set you did. I could live in that store.

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Hi! I love Polyvore too & have been using it for my inspiration boards. I don't think I've been to your blog before & it's so pretty. Looks like we hang out with a lot of the same friends. Hope you'll come and see me sometime. I'll have to add you to my regular list of reads!

I would love to see you create your own room in real life.
