Are you a Pinterest fan? What a great interior design tool - If you’re looking for inspiration when it’s time to redecorate or remodel your home it’s the first place many people turn to for ideas (Click here to follow me and check out some of my favorite Pinterest Boards.)
I’d say at least 80% of my clients, who are coming to me for design help, already have a Pinterest board (or several) with design ideas that they know they like - which really helps when we're working out the look and style of their space.
But while it's a big help to know what you like, you also need to know how to translate that into your own space -- and that can be tricky.
In this short video, I'll share my tips on how to hear what your pins are REALLY telling you about your style, and more importantly how to translate the look you love from your board, into a look that you love in your room. (And don't forget to check the bottom of the post to see how to enter my September Giveaway)
Here are my top 3 tips:
1. Distinguish what you are reacting to in the photo and whether it's MOVEABLE. for example, if it's the architecture or the sunlight, then enjoy the photo but move on, as those things can't be moved into your space.
2. Use the pins to learn new terminology and descriptive words for searching online and on other sites.
3. Look for the colors, patterns and textures that repeat throughout your pins - these can be translated into color palettes and style directions for your room.
