So, we have an obsession. A Pinterest obsession. If you aren’t already addicted yourself, allow us to make an introduction. Pinterest meet Square Cow Aficionados. Square Cow Aficionados meet Pinterest. Sometimes when scrolling through Pinterest, we come across so many seriously good hoof-to-forehead ideas, we get a headache. Who knew white distilled vinegar could be used for so many things? Pinterest is great for fashion ideas, recipes, cleaning tips, and activities for kids, but one of our favorite uses for Pinterest is inspiration for home decor. As moovers we see the insides of a lot of houses, a move to a new place is the perfect opportunity to decorate your new home. You won’t have to wade through the millions of Pinterest pins to find the best online tools and resources (unless you want to), because we have already curated the best Pinterest board for you! Here are some of the highlights:
- Arrange Those Frames – How can you emulate those perfect picture galleries you see displayed in magazines? Several pins show you exactly what size of frames and how to arrange them to get that professionally designed picture wall look. Follow one of these guides to avoid the look of a bunch of small frames randomly cluttering a central focal wall in your home.
- Pile on the Patterns – You can mix patterns into your home decor by using patterns in black and white shades, sticking to one color, or playing with pattern size. With a black and white color scheme, you can easily incorporate shades of grey as well as various patterns. When you use a single color scheme to decorate a room, it’s easy to mix two different patterns together while helping the room to maintain a unified look. The trick to balancing different patterns involves using both large and small scale prints.
- Perfect Pillows – How many pillows are too many? Some men may take a more utilitarian approach to pillows, a.k.a. the fewer the better. While some women may wish to jazz up their bedroom decor with a few extra flourishes. Pick the perfect pillow arrangement using either standard or euro sized pillows, add a few throw pillows for a punch of color, and your bed is made. Hopefully you will be able to find the right balance between and avoid a too tailored or overly frilly look.
- The Perfectly Appointed Coffee Table – The pièce de résistance of any living room is of course, a well-styled coffee table. Why else would large, expensive, image-filled coffee table books exist (besides the fact that we hope our company will think we are intelligent and interesting because we obviously read the books on our coffee table…)? Apparently there is a formula to achieve the perfectly accessorized coffee table. According to one pin all you need is a floral/branch arrangement, three stacked books, and a small intriguing item to place on top of the books. The next time someone compliments you on your AMAZING coffee table arrangement, just shrug, smile and say, “oh, I saw it on Pinterest”.
