I have to admit that it took me a long time to get into Pinterest. I struggled (and still do) with how so many things get posted without a link back to the rightful owner of the image or a credit to the artists that were involved. I’ve had some of my images that I’ve styled and photographed be pinned and re-pinned with other designers names as credit which is a little frustrating. (I know I am guilty of not always crediting correctly when in a pinning frenzy but I’m hoping that just saying it out loud will hold me more accountable to always give credit where credit is due.)
Anywayyyy, I started using Pinterest when we began our work on the cabin and that’s when I got addicted. It really has been a great place to organize products and inspiration for a project. I didn’t notice how much it had become a part of my day until I got back from being unplugged in New Zealand to realize I missed all the pinning goodness in my life!
What I especially love is when I look back over all of my pins, I see my aesthetic through commonalities in completely unrelated subjects and without even trying, I see groupings like these that reflect different aspects of my style (maybe based on the moods I’m in?).
Whether its common materials, patterns, or a central color palette, it’s fun to see the different moods that subconsciously surface. Do you guys notice these things with your pins?
