The title is not a typo… One of the Internet’s fastest-growing social media sites is Pinterest (interest with a “p” in front). I have to admit that it took me about two seconds to reach my own personal “Aha!” for the value this tool could provide to our readers.
Planning a new home build or renovation is challenging and sharing your vision with your builder/kitchen designer/interior designer, etc. can be very frustrating. But what if you could build a virtual online scrapbook? And what if all of the photos in your virtual scrapbook could lead back to the source of web origin? And what if you could sort your inspiring images of beautiful rooms by any category or grouping you choose? You could compile the best of the best from the entire internet instead of snipping, printing or saving links and all in a convenient and visual format!
Looking for luxurious bathrooms?
The above boards are just a sample of the visual categories we are building for you. When you look at the images, they will include a link at the upper right to get to the webpage they came from to learn more.
Because a picture is worth a thousand words, it is easy to share your vision without having it lost in translation or interpretation.This is why Pinterest is becoming so popular with professionals in the design industry. You will notice the Pinterest icon popping up on most online design magazines and many, many blogs and websites.
DrummondHousePlans has recently joined Pinterest with English and French pages and will post images regularly to inform and inspire your design process. You can follow our Pins individually or by themed “Boards” for easy reference. If you are looking for a specific idea, we’ll even pin ideas to suit your requests.
If you are wondering how to get started, Pinterest provides a Pinning 101 section on their site. From practical experience, it is faster to sign up by invitation than to do so on the Pinterest site. If you need an invite, we would be happy to oblige to open this wonderful world to you. Just leave a comment on this post and we will send you an invite. I cannot emphasize enough how helpful it will be to your project planning!
We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
