It's no secret that in 2017, we instinctively turn to Pinterest for décor inspiration. We scroll, search, and pin until we find The One—that elusive pin that is unique, perfectly imperfect, and inspires our entire décor scheme. What makes a pin go viral? Some interiors get very little love on Pinterest while others skyrocket and end up in every single one of our dream home décor boards. We set out to find the common thread between these sensations of the Pinterest world.
To do this, we tapped our favorite Pinterest influencers to share their most popular pin this month. These interior designers, creative directors, and freelance stylists have built a cult following on the social platform, thanks to their curated aesthetics and discerning eye. Their feeds are a veritable color-coordinated feast for the eyes. Their pins can easily dictate how we paint our nails, dress for spring, or decorate. One particular pin—a cozy Scandinavian entryway—had over 78,000 impressions in March only. Curious to know how to re-create the look of these rockstar rooms? We found the best décor options to do so.
The Undone Bedroom
"I like the rural character the old bedroom door gives to this space," says designer and blogger Sarah Peteghem. "The décor and bedding are kept very clean and minimal, which contrasts very nicely with the old wood." Scandinavian interior lovers, rejoice. Munich-based Peteghem covers all things modern European design on her Pinterest boards.
The Timeless Living Room
"[Interior designer] Tom Delavan's apartment is the epitome of minimalistic chic," gushes Copenhagen-based writer Katie Armour Taylor. "I love the large scale of the lantern and calm neutral tones." The American expat isn't the only one to reminisce about the timeless home of the former Domino editor at large—the living room was her most popular pin this month.
The Cozy Entryway
"I'm a sucker for a bold patterned wallpaper," says Wit + Delight founder, Kate Arends. "I've got this amazing floral wallpaper from Hygge & West in my powder room, and I'm dying to find a new space to incorporate another bold print." With over 2.5 million followers on Pinterest, this marketing consultant really has her finger on the pulse.
The Minimalist Moment
"Louise Liljencrantz designs are so chic," says freelance stylist and blogger Jennifer Hagler. "I especially love the shadows in this photo but also the [Noguchi] lamp, because I have the same one in my bedroom." Halger built a large Pinterest following for her sharp eye and minimalist aesthetic.
The Bold Bookcase
"The explosion of color in this living room is a feast for the eyes," says Apartment 34 founder, Erin Hiemstra. "I'm a huge fan of dark walls, but it's rare to see a dark room paired with such bright tones. As this space illustrates, a unique idea can totally work." The San Fransisco–based creative knows a thing or two about dark interiors, having recently completed a townhouse renovation that included a perfectly moody room of its own.
The Styled Bar Cart
"The mix of elements here is the epitome of my style," says creative director and blogger Erika Brechtel. "I love mixing something sleek and sexy like this Kate Moss photograph by Mario Testino with brass vintage pieces, a midcentury modern classic, and finds from around the world." Brechtel is known for her interior style that blends off-duty-model chic with modern glam accents.
