11 Inspiring Pinterest Accounts For People Who Love Homemaking

Pinterest was made for immersing yourself in a more beautiful world, guided by a Greek chorus of similar-minded people who convince you to explore the infinite possibilities of Mason jars and chalk paint.

As the site has grown, it’s also become a little trickier to find the Pinners who consistently post inspiring ideas among the Pinners who fill your feed with, say, ugly photos of casseroles. (Not that there is anything wrong with casseroles, I just haven’t seen one that photographs well.)

As a starting point, I’ve sifted through my current roster of favorite home and garden Pinners you should follow if you love decorating.

If you have any great Pinners you’d like to nominate, share a link in the comments, or tweet your picks at @Porchdotcom.
