The Friday 5: Top 5 Rooms/Decorating Ideas from Pinterest

We enjoy providing a variety of inspiration and decorating ideas via our Pinterest boards, and it’s always interesting to see what pins grab your interest!

Here are the top 5 pins from the last 30 days:

1. This little kitchen was the most pinned.  From the trending gray paint on the cabinets to the fun fabric of the window treatments, it has a fresh, crisp, cheerful vibe.

Window treatments are an important element in the kitchen, providing privacy, light control, and decoration.

 2. In this month of getting organized, the function and storage packed into this mudroom hit a chord!

3. There were a couple of other laundry rooms that came close, but this one was a hit.  Some great ideas here – one of my favorites is the large baskets under the counters.

4. Next up is this living room.  A perfect example of using a window treatment fabric to inspire a room’s design, and notice how they incorporated the current gold trend!

5. Last, but not least – this light-filled modern living room.  More proof that you can use a sectional in a small room.  The dark floor grounds the room and the textural ceiling and dark accent wall provide additional interest. This look and the look of room #4 could easily be achieved with furniture from Schneiderman’s!

    My favorites would be the kitchen and the living space in the last picture. I would love to change the look of my kitchen and like the light, clean feeling of the one you featured. I have black granite and maple cabinets, so I’m not sure how I would pull that off. Any ideas?

      Hi Natalie – every room varies but just going by what you said in your comment, here are my thoughts: If you’re not interested in painting the cabinets or changing out the countertop, but are still trying to mimic the feel of this room, then focus on the walls, backsplash, window treatments, lighting and accessories. The two things I really notice in this room from a design standpoint are: repetition, which makes the room feel cohesive, and white (popped with a bold accent color), which makes the room feel fresh and light. In the inspiration image it looks like they’ve painted the walls very close to the cabinet color – you could try the same by going with a light version of your cabinet color. Otherwise, light gray looks good with natural maple, and we’re even seeing a lot more white (soft, not stark) walls now. Use the backsplash as they did here to tie all of the colors (cabinet, wall, counter) together but make sure it includes white to help bring that lightness into the space. Choose a window treatment with a white background and a large scale, fun print in that same color scheme (repetition) and add accessories, including white to compliment. If you have shades on your lighting, swap them out for white. Hope that helps!

    I am not a fan of grey — but I do love the kitchen. It is really nicely tied together. I love the laundry room — how nice it would be to have a beautiful one instead of the basement.

      Thanks for commenting Bonnie! I like the kitchen too – the crisp, fun window treatment fabric and pops of cheerful color are a great contrast against the gray! I’m assuming that was probably what drew most people in. The nice thing about the laundry room is that it doesn’t appear to have windows but still seems bright because of all of the white they used – maybe a possibility for a basement laundry room? – PK
