All the Rage

            No, not the latest shoes or dress or even movie. The latest rage in homes and interiors is Pinterest( and Houzz ( Never heard of them? Well, let me explain what they are and how they can help you as you make your house your home. This week we will look at Pinterest. Their goal is to connect everyone in the world through the 'things' they find interesting. They think that a favorite book, toy, or recipe can reveal a common link between two people. Pinterest is connecting people all over the world based on shared tastes and interests.


            Pinterest is what I like to refer to as a wonderful online file cabinet. It allows me to store and sort pictures, ideas, crafts and recipes online in easy to find and navigate folders. Folders, known as “boards”, are perfect for collecting those recipes you keep meaning to try or that great sofa you would love to have. Some of my board titles are Food, Christmas, Kids, Weddings, Lighting, Home, Beach House (a girl can dream!) and Misc. I save or “pin” pictures or websites or articles from any online source that I want to reference or look at later into the appropriate file. I can also “like” or “repin” items my friends have saved to their boards. Pinterest also has a great search feature.


            Looking for a baby gift idea? Simply type it into the search bar and it will pull up more ideas than you can shake a stick at. Are you getting to build a home or remodel a room? Dreaming about the future? This website is a great tool to organize your thoughts and save your ideas. It beats tearing pictures out of magazines and trying to keep them organized. Possible board titles could be Tile, Kitchen, Bathroom, Yard, Porch, Ceilings, Paint colors, Bedding…The possibilities are endless.

            Explore this website and let me know your thoughts. I bet you will soon be hooked! Look my profiles up and see if there are any ideas you can use. Find me under Jessica Webber and Webber Coleman Woodworks.
