In the past few months, the female contingent of Lava Row has become obsessed with Pinterest, a new web app that allows users to “pin” and share items they find online through themed collections called pinboards.
I’m no interior designer, but I love Pinterest because it gives me access to the thousands of decorating ideas and whimsical products pinned by users more creative than I. The Pinterest community is incredibly diverse, so I never fail to find something unique to “repin” or to share with my friends as I browse through public pinboards. And since the tastemakers at Real Simple’s Simply Stated blog shared Pinterest with their readers this week, I can imagine the Pinterest community will only continue to grow in the months ahead. A little bit of free design information from the experts? I’ll take it.
