I remember reading a post by Holly at Decor8 some time ago about how her Pinterest pins always seem to be naturally themed in colour as she goes. Recently I’ve been spending more time pinning as part of my 2015 goal to improve my social media skills. So I’m now doing it daily, sometimes a couple of times in the day. Well, lets just say that I finally got the Pinterest bug and I feel that I can truly capture my aesthetic.
Instagram really is such an inspiring place to be at the moment. On an artistic level it’s an everyday training tool for capturing and understanding what makes a great photo and for some, it encourages us to practice the art of styling. Some of these IG feeds I’m talking about just take you into this dreamy world; each and every image, ever so slightly touching on the life of the photographer. Hilde Mork has one of those feeds. She has such an eye for capturing beauty, along with an impeccable hand at styling and imagination. With her beautiful Norwegian home as the backdrop, Hilde’s followers sure are in for a visual treat.
A lot of you might already know The Design Chaser blog, impeccably curated by a dear blogging friend of mine, Michelle Halford. Michelle has a love affair with that oh ever so cool Scandi style and has a superb eye for researching the best of design inspiration on the net and sharing it with her viewers, with loads of decorating pointers thrown in. Michelle has also just recently moved into a newly built home with her husband and two young boys and her readers have enjoyed watching her decorate the home, room by room with that minimalist Scandi style. But did you know that behind the blog is an avid pinner with quite a large following? Over 63,000 in fact! It’s without doubt that Michelle knows what people like, and I don’t know about you, but I love the idea of receiving a few Pinterest pointers from the girl herself. She has kindly answered my questions about pinning and thrown in some great tips for us.
