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?
This probably won’t surprise you but I totally do this too! One of my favorite things to do actually is to go to my pins and screen grab the collections that just seem to happen. It’s amazing how often what I thought were random pins come together in a really interesting and inspiring way.
haha of course that doesn’t surprise me kendra 😉 but good to hear it… and yes exactly, it makes me happy to see the coincidental relationships!
