This "virtual pinboard" allows like-minded people to compile, organise and share photos, links and blog entries.
Pinterest delivers more interiors ideas with less web browsing
Keeping up with the ever-increasing number of home decor and design websites is a time-consuming business, not least because so many of them are so beautifully designed and written that it's very easy to become very absorbed.
Pinterest, a website which describes itself as a "virtual pinboard" where like-minded people can compile, organise and share their own favourite photos, links, screen grabs and blog entries, does a lot of the clicking and browsing for you. Each member builds their own compilation like a moodboard, on which they share favourite web finds or images of their own decor projects, handiwork and recipes. You can find pretty much anything home-related here, from recipes for home-made cleaning products and ideas on storage solutions to simple DIY projects and inspiring craft ideas of every type - a collection of collections, if you like.
It's a great tool if you're looking for inspiration for a room makeover, allowing you to mix and match images of furniture, paint colours, fabrics and accessories, then get the advice and opinions of other like-minded users.
