that’s very pinteresting

March 1, 2012

I am the type of person who likes to rip pages out of magazines and save them for future reference.  I even have a 3-ring notebook (or two) with page protectors full of inspiration and ideas ripped from the pages of Better Homes and Gardens, Fine Homebuilding, and the like.  A bit geeky, I know!  This is the reason I dove into pinterest with joyful abandon.  There are so many amazing ideas and inspiring photos out there in blogland and it is nice to finally have a place to keep them all tidy and organized and easy to access.  I think pinterest is a wonderful tool and I try to use it as such.  I don’t really repin a lot of stuff already on pinterest.  I recognized early on that you just can’t view all the pins on pinterest and it could become the most gigantic time waster ever invented!  But when I run across something, in the course of the sites that I follow, that just speaks to me, I pin it to one of my boards.  My biggest collection is in the area of home decorating.  Once you’ve been pinning for a while you might begin to notice some trends that you may not even have been aware of.  They can help you define your own unique decorating style.  I know myself, that I have a very eclectic style and that is quite evident in my pins!  I guess I don’t like being put into a specific style box.  Here are some of the trends that I do notice amongst all my pins…

#1. Colors I am drawn to:  Teal/Aqua and Yellow

#2. Books have an important place in my home  (okay, I already knew that.  I just didn’t realize to what extent I really really really want walls and walls of built-in bookshelves!)
