Interior Design Inspiration on Pinterest

If you're curious about what I've been pinning - check out http://pinterest.com/summerthornton/inspiration/ for my inspiration wall.  For me I'm focused on pulling creative looks that can be reinterpreted into interior design applications...and of course I'm already pinning interiors that I love. If you aren't a member yet, request an invite (it just takes a day or two for them to send you access), and then start pinning away.  You can segment by all sorts of different things - food, fashion, interiors, etc - I've just used it as a catch-all for inspiration so far.  And of course if you log-in via twitter or facebook you can see what your friends are pinning too. So check it out and follow me on twitter at https://twitter.com/summerthornton so you can see what I'm pinning. Oh...and if you see anything on my site that you find inspirational - whether in the inspiration blog or in one of my interior design projects - give it a pin so your friends (including me) can see! http://pinterest.com/summerthornton/inspiration/
