My most powerful tool
As an Interior Decorator Pinterest would have to be my most used tool. Pinterest is an online mood boarding tool that anyone can use. Its free and very addictive. Use it on your desktop and you can also download the app on your mobile phone and you have access to it 24/7. Every client I work with i try to liaise with them on Pinterest. You have access to follow others and visa versa. So its my number one question “are you on Pinterest”??? I often teach people how to use it specifically for their project. Most are already using it and just need to clean it up and fine tune it. Do this regularly and keep things up to date.
Pinterest is the digital way of mood boarding. If your building or renovating make a board for each space or room. You can even import your own photos into the boards if you cant find an image or item on pinterest already. You will begin to see your style evolve and delete images that are not working with your style. Its not about where you find that item you’ve pinned. Its about creating a visual for yourself and to show people what your thinking.
Pinterest is a visual to keep you on track, help you source and show your builder, designer, husband and wife or trades people , shop assistant, designer or anyone relevant exactly what you are wanting.
Just remember Pinterest is public and anyone can see. However if you want to make a board and keep it private you can do this when you first create the board.
Also keep in mind Pinterest is another platform for inspiration. Make an effort to put your own spin on it and make it your own.
