Polyvore: Create Your Own Sample Board

Polyvore: Create Your Own Sample Board

We're visual people so before we purchase anything major for our home — couch, bed, curtains — we usually mock it up on the computer to make sure it'll work in our space. This is easy to do if you have Photoshop but for the not-so-savvy user there's a delightful photo-compilation website called Polyvore that does the grunt work and allows you to assemble your own custom sample boards with a simple drag and drop...

This is an example of a quick sample board we put together during our search for a couch and curtains for our new living room. If you know how to silhouette images in Photoshop then its a snap but Polyvore does the manipulation for you.

Simply install the Polyvore button into your browser's toolbar and it will clip images from anywhere on the web and save them into your library. Then just drag and drop the images from your library onto a canvas to create custom idea boards. If anyone has ever used Wist or other gift compilation sites, it functions much the same. Give it a test run and tell us how it goes!
