The House That Pinterest Built
When I joined Pinterest, Diane Keaton was one of the first accounts that I began to follow. I can't recall exactly how I found her but I remember spending hours combing though her catalog of images and thinking to myself that she had incredible taste and style. (I mean, she is Diane Keaton so I guess I shouldn't have been all that surprised). Well, it turns out that all that pinning she was doing wasn't just a hobby, Diane was actually building an 8000 sq foot house based on the images that she was saving. Luckily for us, those pins and the completed house are now featured in a new book that details Diane's journey as she designed her home using Pinterest as her guide. I for one cannot wait to get my hands on this book and have pretty much been stalking my UPS man, awaiting its arrival!
Below you can see a little glimpse of the incredible home that Diane (and Pinterest) built and Diane's new book can be found here.
Insane, right?????? That kitchen. The bathrooms. The lighting. That ladder. Those beams!!!!!! This, my friends, is industrial chic at its finest!
For me, it really comes as no surprise that you can build a house solely using Pinterest images because that's exactly how I designed my Costa house. You all have seen through this blog some of the decisions I've made, and when it came to the design of this home almost all of my choices have been based on something that I have pinned on Pinterest. Where people used to tear our pages of magazines, we pin, and I think that process has really helped me to narrow down exactly what I wanted for our home. I would say to myself (and to everyone else) that I wanted a very neutral home, and then I would go on my page and see that all I had been pinning were blue hues. Clearly, the heart wants what the heart wants and sometimes you need to visually see something before you know it to be true! Pinterest is such an incredible tool for design and I cannot wait to see how it helped to shape Diane's beautiful home. This book has motivated to share the pins that inspired our home and I can’t wait to Co page the two when our design is completed! Xx
