A Peek Inside

pinterest 1

A sweet reader recently alerted me to the fact that I have been named one of “9 Pinterest Accounts Every Southern Girl Should Follow” by Southern Living. I am so flattered to be included! I am very proud of my Southern roots and everything that represents. That being said, I think my style is timeless and universal, so you should still follow along even if you aren’t a Southern girl!

Pinterest continues to be one of my favorite forms of social media because it is such a visual medium. It serves several purposes for me. First, it is an outlet for relaxation. I love pinning away on my laptop in the evenings with the TV on in the background and a nice glass of wine. Second, it is a great editorial tool. Many times, my “In the Mood” posts are shaped by what I find myself being drawn to on Pinterest. I get a lot of ideas for blog posts from themes that I notice in the things that I am pinning at any given time. When I am on Pinterest, I am not typically looking for anything specific. Instead, I just pin things that I find myself drawn to, so it is a very organic way for me to find inspiration and for readers and followers to get a peek inside of my mind and what is currently inspiring me. Lastly, it is a great organizational tool in the beginning stages of our design projects as I begin to develop the concept for each individual home we work on at Paloma Contreras Design. Here is a peek at some of my favorite things that I am currently pinning. It’s like getting a peek inside of my mind!
