D+D Asks: Do You Pin?


By Jill M. Speegle

Favorites, bookmarks, traditional scrapbooks or storyboards may soon be “old news” when it comes to design inspiration.

A website called “Pinterest,” launched earlier this year and still in invite-only form, has begun generating a buzz in the design world. The site already touts more than 1 million users.

Described as a “virtual pinboard,” the site allows users to pin online photos to self-created “boards.” It “helps you collect and explore what inspires you,” Ben Silbermann, a co-founder of the site, said in an interview with HGTV.com.

Some of the design ideas “for the home” posted on Pinterest: Peter Pan painted on a bedroom wall and a concrete kitchen.

Also, the space allows users to share boards with others, peruse others’ pinboards, “comment,” “repin,” and “like” pins.

I, too, have joined in the pinning-craze. I must admit the experience has been quite addicting. So, I thought it only fitting to find out if some of the creative minds in the D+D community are also using Pinterest.

Have you been pinning? Tell us about your experience.
