Meanwhile, I’ve been pinning obsessively over on Pinterest:
Pinterest allows you to “pin” to “boards” anything that catches your fancy on the internet. My boards are mostly design-related, such as “exhibits,” “engagement,” “interiors,” “exteriors,” “materials,” etc. It’s basically a place to collect found inspiration. Fun.
