Home interior design can be tricky; whilst you want your home to look fashionable, you also want to keep it unique and personal to your tastes. But where does one get ideas from?
Heard of Pinterest? This application can be a real inspiration in all aspect of life. Users come from all over the world and all you have to do is search for ‘Home Interior Design’ or ‘Home decor’ and you will be shocked at the impressive array of inspirational ideas that pops up. People can be seriously creative and they love to take photos of their creations and put them on the internet. Industrial design, Colours, furniture, Man caves, master bedrooms and shabby chic decor are just some of the sub-headings to choose from. Each heading is a treasure trove of creative ideas to motivate you into being bold and colourful and trying new things with your home interior design. Here is a taster of some of the more unusual and inspired ideas I found, some I could never in a million years have dreamed up!
The ‘simple and brilliant’ message board. Cork pinboards are such a well-used, bog standard way to remind yourself you have a pile of bills to pay before you can even think about saving for that holiday/new pair of shoes/dog/baby. Check this out, pinned from The Inspired Room.
Or if it all gets too much, you can abstain from the rest of your adulthood shift by turning your couch into a couch fort, crawling in and if you wish very very hard, nobody will notice or find you…thanks to Slowrobot for this pin!
And once you’re ready to face the real world and home interior decisions again, Pinterest has such a staggering number of ideas which some might call bizarre whilst others would say ‘genius’
Bizarre or genius? Ceramic tiles that look like real wood. No grout needed!
Regardless of your opinion, Pinterest is a fun and educational application which is bound to have something for everyone because of the sheer number of international users. You know what they say, ‘ 70million heads are better than one’.
