Pinterest can be a good place to find home decorating ideas, but it also has a lot of ideas that are not worth imitating. The online scrapbooking service was the source of many important home trends in 2014, as reported by The Huffington Post.
The gallery wall, or statement wall, was big in 2014, and it was a fixture on Pinterest. Many Pinterest users, commonly called Pinners, pinned their photos of a variety of frames in all kinds of colors, shapes, styles and sizes to make inspiring layouts — sometimes fashionable, sometimes colorful and sometimes eclectic — on their walls. Others effectively showed off another home decor trend: colorful staircases, both in subdued hues and in bolder, brasher shades.
Elle Decor, a home decorating magazine noted for its modern and fashionable point of view, calls Pinterest one of its favorite social networking sites. Professionals in the design world have found it instrumental in consolidating inspirational images. The site affords pinners the opportunity to organize their design ideas, for example, by guest room ideas or stripes. The site has been a convenience to interior designers who have found that they can quickly access their saved Pinterest boards during meetings in order to show clients.
