My husband and I are debating a trip away at the moment and Paris is on my mind (admittedly so is NYC and Copenhagen). This is a BIG year for us; we’ll have been married for 10 years in September, known each other for 20 years in November and it’s our son’s first birthday in September also. That’s a hell of a lot of milestones, I’m sure you’ll agree.

You’ve probably seen me posting about Pinterest before, as I’ve been a total addict for many moons now. Even in the darkest hours of the morning as a new mum I found solace in searching for inspiration on Pinterest. In fact my Children’s and Nursery board came on a treat during those hours!
It such a useful source to help me categorise the things I like and the styles I admire. I also have thematic boards on colour and style that help me in my work. It’s so helpful to have a “go to” virtual scrapbook instead of overloading my poor computer with images that I then struggle to find in my appalling filing system. I also love finding pinners who have a fantastic aesthetic and quite frankly I then stalk them – in pinning terms don’t worry! Some of these include my favourite bloggers but sometimes its ordinary folks who can spot beauty at a thousand paces, its great to see the types of things they pin.
Pinterest has now been enhanced so that UK users will be able to see more UK content. They’ve launched the #PinItForwardUK campaign which was kicked off by the wonderful Will of Bright Bazaar to make us Brits more aware of the changes. I have to thank Marianne at Nordic Bliss and Gwenda Jones for explaining the simplicity of it to me (I expected it to be more complicated!) Handily other UK Pinners will also be suggested to you but I recommend the below lovely people for the gorgeous things they spot. So go on and #PinItForwardUK
Marianne of Nordic Bliss– gorgeous pale interiors
Andy at Chapter7design – eye for detail
Sue of a Nomadic abode – eclectic and eye catching
Obsessilicious – for the love of Eames
My all time favourite Swedish blog – Emmas Designblogg
Tina at Colourliving – bursting with colour just like Will's boards are too
Trend daily - for styling ideas

So come and join the pinning fun. I promise you’ll enjoy it
