I’ve been pinning a lot more recently – which I love. It’s a great little break during the day when you need a quick inspiration fix (I love you, internet)! It may be nerdy, but I get really excited when I look at somebody’s page of pins and see cohesiveness. You know, a certain style or aesthetic that is carried throughout for the most part!

When I look at my pins as a whole, I see simplicity paired with hints of modern-ness, which closely parallels my design tastes. What about you? Are you feminine, girly, vintage, eclectic?

    I’m totally the same way – in fact I won’t pin an image if the scale and color palette doesn’t complement my most recent pins. Compulsive!! Haha.

    • bre says:

      YES, same! If I pin something and then look at my pins and it doesn’t fit, I delete it. ;)

  2. Jamy says:

    It’s so interesting to look at it that way! It is also funny to see how one’s pins change over time. Definite evolution.

    I’ve become a pinning addict too recently! I don’t really think about it too much… overall my pins definitely have ‘my’ look. I’m careful about how the boards are presented though… I pick and place the cover image of each board carefully and make sure everything is lower case :)

    • bre says:

      Ha! I started lowercasing everything too an ending in a period. I like the way we think. ;)

  4. Stephanie says:

    Totally agree….although sometimes I find that one random item/photo and just have to pin! Impulsive pinning is a problem :/

    Pinterest is SO much fun! I’ve been pinning for more than a year now and still love it. Check out my boards if you want to! http://pinterest.com/linnmaria

    By the way, just found your blog and it is amazing.
    Love from Sweden!

    Hah, I think my pins would show that I’m completely bipolar with what I like/love. It’s like this weird overwhelming obsession with white and all things neutral, and then BAM an explosion of rainbow here and there.

  7. Jess says:

    Yes! It is so satisfying to look at my pins as a collective. I’ve found it reinforces my aesthetic and vision when I feel like I’m veering off course a bit. I’d describe my taste as minimalist and clean with a dose of vintage charm and a bit of an edge. xo

  8. I tend to ‘like’ pins first—then days later pin clumps of my likes that go together. My ‘likes’ act like an inbox to be sorted. If I pin an especially good clump of pins I’ll take a screenshot, clean it up in photoshop, and save it on my computer for safe keepings. (Obsessive?) I’ve also started pinning interesting things that aren’t high quality visually to my secret boards :-)

    Loving your blog, inspiring me to get my act together and start blogging!

    Glad to see I’m not the only Pinterest addict.
