Welcome to the updated
MUST-FOLLOW INTERIOR DESIGN PINNERS ON PINTEREST DIRECTORY!
I began this list on New Year’s Day, 6 years ago, with 10 “Pinners To Follow”, adding on to it in that same year. I ended up at 40 interior design pinners featured.
After a few years, some of the pinners on my list moved into different niches or stopped pinning consistently. Pinterest had changes that kept you from seeing the pins of people you were following, so the list seemed a little pointless then.
The introduction of Instagram captured everyone’s attention and Pinterest became more of a marketing tool and search engine, not something you necessarily go to for visual design inspiration.
However, with the “Following” tab at the top of your feed, you can now see more results from the people you follow. It’s becoming more like how it used to be on Pinterest, if you use that tab.
So, I felt it was time to republish this list with an update.
I wanted to bring you the pinners I feel are still very actively pinning plenty of valuable, current, inspirational interior design images. I focused on pinners who pinned images without a lot of text overlay, from a variety of sources, not just their own websites.
These pinners below were part of the original list and made the cut.
Scroll through them and follow each one, if you haven’t already, then see the 5 new ones I added below!
Let’s just name Irene "The Grand Dame of Pinning" and call it a day. With over 4 MILLION followers, she has well earned that title.
Many of her 86,000 pins are in her Sonoma-style, and each are collected with her sharply honed-eye for design.
I love Irene’s taste, as well as her occasional well-turned comments.
Lynda Quintero-Davids is another person who undoubtably deserves the label: "Celebrity Pinner."
With over 3 million followers and 63,000 pins, I think she features just about everything you’d ever want to see from a pinner of interior design. Not only that, but her boards are so well organized and laid out, making it easy to find that special image you’re looking for to complete your gallery.
(You know what? I bet her sock drawer is color coded and categorized by type too!)
There’s a cool, youthful, California lifestyle reflected in everything she pins and 660,000+ people must agree. She has a highly popular design blog you must check out for some beautiful daily design inspiration.
