In Love With Pinterest

I LOVE Pinterest because, though I am aware I love a good black and white stripe, and appreciate it equally on a wall or a piece of stationary, it was pretty cool to see these two images pop up near each other.

Pinterest is a virtual pin board where you can post inspirational images organized by category.  You can follow other users, and search images by tags.  I would recommend it to clients to gather images of spaces they love.  It’s such a great way to see trends forming in what you like.

For example, I am noticing that I’m drawn to lots of white and pale colors.  I’m liking cushions without welting, and sofas with long, lean lines–a cush modern kind of a look.

For interior design, it’s  a great way to find the common denominator in what might seems like disparate looks. It’s also just fun to catalog the things I’m loving.  If you have the “collector” gene in you, you’ll love Pinterest.
