Pinterest is another way to communicate your ideas to your designer. it is a great way to collect lots of images of things you like and categorize them. A helpful way to start "defining your style". Sign up and start pinnning. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Find a great picture on the internet? Just join Pinterest and "pin" the image to one of your concept or idea boards. You can follow other "pinners" and they can follow you. It sure saves a lot of time trying to tear photos out of magazines and file them. For example I recently found this photo on a blog I was reading recently and pinned this funky painted furniture photo to my Furniture board. A great idea for decorating a child or tween room.
I hope you are having a relaxing weekend. We are gearing up for a busy week for our family. My son and his wife are moving to Chattanooga with our little grandson George next weekend. Boo! Fortunately, Chattanooga it is only a couple of hours away, so we will be "burning up the road" as they say down here in Atlanta. Thank you all for reading!
