I like Pinterest

My new favorite thing (fairly new to me anyway) is Pinterest, an online inspiration board of sorts where you "pin" favorite images. I'm not totally sure of all the ins and outs of Pinterest since I just recently joined, but if you love online image eye candy and are like me and have messy folders on your desktop of random saved inspiration images, you will LOVE Pinterest. When you pin, it credits the source of where you found it (though often that's not the original source of the actual image, and I imagine this could be an issue for pinterest at some point, hmm). I hope source issues don't cause too much trouble because I really like the service. Here's the link to my boards. Right now I've just focused on pinning images of interiors, but other folks have boards of so many other things. Below are a few things I've pinned to my board this week. All the sources are linked to the pins on my boards. (The image above, "things I like" is by John Derian--possibly my favorite designer, one of the few whose name's I can even remember!)

Love that room at the top, with its bookshelves. My bedroom is tiny and I love books ... so that would work for me. Thanks for posting it! I'll copy and save it in my desktop images folder, for inspiration. I know exactly what you were talking about, there!

Wow, that really is about sharing. And with our increasingly magpie-like minds, a great way to do it. Thanks for sharing that!

Wow, I think I need to book out a full day to play around with pinterest! What a great find. I also have folders of inspiration and would love to someplace to curate them. Thanks for sharing this!
