If you aren't using Pinterest, then it's time to get on board! How do you collect and organize your inspiration? Many people including us have used magazines and other forms of print media to tear out pictures that inspire us and serve as a reminder of ideas and products for our future projects. If you are not familiar with it, Pinterest is a digital pin board. It keeps all your ideas and inspirations online in a convient and organized place. Retracing your steps to find" that one thing you saw that one time" is a thing of the past. In addition to storing photos and images, the things you pin save the link to the original website so you can always remember and get back to your original source of inspiration.
Don't underestimate the power of this simple site. with Pinterest, we at Charlton Bradsher Art + Design are able to streamline our information gathering process by quickly saving inspirations, products and concepts for each new project on the Pin Boards.Imagine seeing a unique vintage coffee table 6 months ago and yesteday a client comes in with a new project you realize that table would be perfect for! No more wasted time spinning wheels to come up with the original vendor, all we have to do is vist our table gallery on pinterest and VOLA! there it is!
Pinterest has also helps interior designs communicate more effectively with clients. Many of our clients come to us to help them with a design project because they have trouble defining their own style. Most of our clients have a uniqe and personal style that they want to display in their home remodel projects, but have trouble charaterizing what that is. With pinterest, it allows us to get to the bottom of your individual tastes and style in pictures instead of words. Since design language can be confusing and easily misinterpreted by many, photos help us to narrow down what types of interior spaces and finishes define you. By including our clients in the Pinterest process, we are able to get vaulable input from our cients to inform their space and design aesthetic. This can save hours in the design process and also allows us to print less paper and communicate ideas faster.
We invite you to follow us on Pinterest, and get inspired for your next home project today!
