It's no secret that I have a real obsession with Pinterest. As a designer, it has become one of most valued resources - a constant source of inspiration, an important part of client communication and a main attractor to the blog. Since joining, I have done my best to keep my boards organized and not have too few or too many boards floating out there. Recently, however, I was noticing that things were getting a little overloaded and not as user friendly as I would have liked. So I took some time and did some re-sorting. In alphabetical order...
Blog|A Pin A Day: A remnant from the roughly year long series that I have since discontinued.
Blog|The Place Home: A repository for the images associated with blog posts.
Design|Details: All pins related to finish carpentry, joinery and material detailing. This is one of my favorite boards as I just love the craftsmanship and ingenuity that is expressed in some of the images. Plus its where you will find my image collection of dutch doors...
Design|Fireplaces: Another favorite as fireplaces represent that beautiful balance of function and aesthetics.
Design|Garden: One of my most pin to boards and one that is probably in need of subdividing. This boards includes everything related to outdoor spaces, gardening and landscape design.
Design|Intervention: A board dedicated to large scale and experiential art. Some amazing images of land art that I find awe inspiring.
Design|Public: A collection of exterior and interior public spaces - restaurants, shops, multi-family housing units, barns, factories etc.
Design|Representation: A selection of amazing artists' works.
Design|Quilts: This is one of my new boards as I decided this obsession needed its own space in my collection.
Design|Stairs: I love stairs for the same reason I love fireplaces - form and function.
Home|Accessorize: An old board that I subdivided - this large collection now includes textiles, rugs, homewares, hardware and styling.
Home|Bathrooms: Currently 100 pins of this highly used space.
Home|Bedrooms: A new board dedicated to one of my favorite rooms in a house.
Home|Finishes: This board includes images of materials (largely flooring), paint and wallpaper.
Home|Furniture: My go to resource for beautiful pieces - lots of rattan, walnut, brass, linen, leather...
Home|Holidays: This collection should probably just be called Home|Christmas.
Home|Interiors: Basically images of inspiring interior spaces that aren't bathrooms, kitchens or bedrooms.
Home|Kitchens: A new board dedicated entirely to this design beast of a room.
Home|Lighting: Another newbie full of form and function - lots here as I am not a big fan of overhead can lighting.
