What Does Your Pinterest Say About You?

my pinterestWhat does Pinterest say about you? I’ll tell you what I’ve learned from mine.

I love black and white. I knew this, but I didn’t know how MUCH I love it. A few weeks I changed all my board cover photos to black and white (or as close as I can get.) When I see my Pinterest profile, I sigh with content. I love the simplicity and cleanliness that often shines through with black and white. I’ve always loved black and white photography. I never thought of decorating easter eggs this way. Until Pinterest.

I love very modern architecture. I didn’t know this. I gravitate towards every photo of a home with modern architecture I see on Pinterest. I don’t just repin. I almost always click through to see where it takes me. According to Pinterest I love white walls and white furniture with splashes of natural wood tones throughout. My house looks NOTHING like this on the inside or outside. And I love my home. But recents pins have me thinking and imagining.

My Hello Gorgeous board is full of long hair, beards, tattoos and glasses. I knew this. So does anyone who knows me well. It’s been like my thing since the beginning of time. My husband looks nothing like this. I love, adore, and am crazy attracted to my man. Life is funny sometimes.

Other things: I have a font obsession that I need to get a grip on, especially since I never actually download any new fonts. I just took the bull by the horns and *gasp* deleted my Fonts board. I am already a fairly organized person. Why do I repin organizing pins? There’s really nothing left in my home to “organize”. I’m never going to make my own laundry detergent or dishwashing soap. I’ve let that dream and those pins fade away.

What does your Pinterest say about you? Has it taught you something about yourself you didn’t know?

    I love this idea! (I’m with you on the handsome beards- but I’m from Humboldt so maybe it’s in my genes!) I’m off to check out my Pinterest boards now- far more telling than reading tea leaves!

    I think growing up in a Victorian with colorful decorating has damaged you somehow:(
