I don’t know how about you, but I have been living social media in full for the past year! I just opened my Tumblr account! I have updated my icons on blog, and this made me thinking… How much we are depended on social media these days?! I wake up with Twitter, keep in touch with family & friends via Facebook only lately, getting inspired by Pinterest and living my life on Instagram. If you are blogger, you are probably just nodding now your head in approval.
`image source PinterestI spend my Sundays mostly scheduling, writing and as soon as I finish work, on my way home I am already posting away.. I know that Social Media is a part of our lives this days, but how much we get inspired of it? Let’s find out.
Let's start with Pinterest. I am, I have to admit surprisingly the least active on this platform. That's only because I am such a traditionalist. I rather just go through magazines, touch fabrics, look outdoor etc. These days, many people instead of books, are searching through Pinterest to get inspired, but can Pinterest itself inspire interiors? Sure can!
This is what we often see at many homes, picture frames hung either symmetrically or asymmetrically. Since Pinterest launched, I think there is a quite significant pattern we can see, is the Typography mixed with normal pictures. The horizontal mixed with vertical and this specific Instax type space underneath for description.
This giant board was on display by Carbou's Coffee to inspire their clients in The Mall of America.
This stunning wallpaper is a creation of Elsie Larson from ABeautiful Mess blog! I think Elsie done incredible job! I just love it! You can see the detail of it here Instax Wallpaper. This is typical Pinterest inspiration with the significant space under the photo. Love Instax? Read my post about Instax and where to buy the camera to create this stunning wall!

Instagram! I live instagram! I am such a narcissist ;) Since I have my pastel hair I have been more confident I tend to use it more often :)
Instagram, would be the obvious choice for a home decor. Minimalistic, clean and smooth lines and pop of colour or theme. You can personalised and I think that's the beauty of it! When we talk about Instagram is not just the way the images positioned, it also about the filters, the colours-pastels, sepia etc. bringing this specific mood into your home. Instagram mood.
This bedroom was designed by Weitzman and Halpern and was inspired by typical 16 year old girl! Generation Z much!
This stunning stair wall was created by Jen from JenLoveskev! Is absolutely amazing idea for a stair area. Well done Jen! Read here more about the project!
How about Twitter? I found this picture and I just can't stop thinking that this is the way how twitter was born.. don't you think? Let's have a sneak peak into actual Twitter office.
We all can't forget Facebook! I think when I see typical typography it all remind me suddently of the Monday Inspirations or Friday Feeling quotes, everyone is sharing over & over on Facebook isnt? These are availble this cheap from H&M here
Last I thought is apps. We all love the lighting effect and its amazing what the app Bokeh can do. I see some home decor inspired by this as well, looks so cool! images 1,2
