Did you know Pinterest is one of the hottest social networking sites going? It cut down the time it takes to source images for my blog by more than half – so awesome, and it still took me months and months to finally set up my own boards. What the heck was I thinking??? When I looked at my statistics, Pinterest was up there as one of my highest sources of traffic so that’s when I realized I had to join the club.
This is my adorable board.
If you are doing a renovation, it’s a great place to categorize your inspiration photos and if you’re a designer it’s perfect for creating boards that express your aesthetic. If I need to specify knobs and pulls for a kitchen, I just go to my ‘kitchen hardware‘ board and there are the ones I like the most (I do need to add more to this one).
If I’m in an on-line or in-person consultation and we need lighting? We just pop over to my lighting board. Way easier than searching through thousands of lights to get to the one I would specify.
When I need inspiration for styling a space or I want to show my on-line clients what I’d recommend we just go to my Styled Interiors Board. Simple.
Want to know which Tile flooring I can handle? Go to my Tile Floors I Like board. As you know there isn’t much. Just put hardwood everywhere you can I say, this way you aren’t so bossed around by specific colours or undertones for the life of the blasted tile.
What about fireplaces? Don’t you just shake your head at the designs of some of them that you have to live with for a time until you can do something about it?
I don’t know if I’ve ever said ‘Let’s paint that stone white’, I mean stone? That doesn’t normally work. Well my lovelies, it’s working here and I’m a little shocked. Is it the white walls and the white floors I wonder? Anyway there’s a first for everything. I can occassionally change my opinon. It does happen!
Pinterest (Happy Bathrooms)
And I know you will be shocked but I found some accent tile that I like! This is how it’s done if you must have it!
Another time saver is My Style Board. I just collect fashion looks that I like so then when I need to pack for a trip it’s way easier to get inspiration for putting outfits together! Love it!
See all my boards here! Happy Pinning!
