Step By Step Guide On How To Create An Interior Design Inspiration Board Using Pinterest

In my design onboarding process, I always get my clients to fill out a questionnaire. And in my questionnaire, I always request of them to send me the link to their Pinterest board inspiration. You might ask, why do I request that, right? The reason is simple, I’m a very visual person and the world of interior design is a very visual one as well. If I don’t see through your eyes, through your inspiration, I will have a hard time helping you get the home of your dreams.

Pinterest boards inspiration are boards where you collect images of things that inspire you. There are various ways to collect images and through different platforms, but I have found Pinterest to be the easiest to go to.

So today I’m going to take you through the steps I take to create a Pinterest interior design inspiration board. It’s straight-forward and super easy to follow.

I’ll be using my personal Pinterest account, but you can also check out my business Pinterest account.

Step One

When I open my Pinterest, the first thing I see is my profile picture, my username, my followers/following status, and all of my inspiration boards displayed on my home page.

Step Two

On the right-hand corner of the page, you’ll see a plus [+] sign. Once I click on it, I’m prompted to either create a pin or a board. In this case, I’ll click on “board”.

Step Three

When I click on “board”, a dialog box opens, I write the name of my new board. I can also choose to make it a private or a public board. Once done, I click on “create”.

Step Four

Then a box will open with different images that I can select, and it will be added to my newly created inspiration board.

Step Five

Here it is! My new Pinterest board that I named “Dreamed House” with the 5 inspiration images [saved images in Pinterest are called “pins”] that I added to it.

Step Six

Now, once you’ve done that, you will have to share this Pinterest board with me, your interior designer. What you’ll do is click on the 3 dots […] next to the name of your Pinterest board and a drop-down menu will appear. Click on “share”. 

Step Seven

Choose your favorite way of sending me your Pinterest board. You can either send it to me via Email, WhatsApp, etc. or copy the link and paste it inside the design questionnaire I’ll require you to fill in.

Now you know how to create a Pinterest inspiration board. Go ahead, get creative, get inspired and once you’re ready, visit my virtual design services and I’d be more than happy to help you create your dreamy home.
