Pinterest 100: The top trends for 2019
While the list spans food, hobbies, beauty, travel and wellness – we're focusing on the thing we love most, creating the 'Ideal Home'.
Homebodies are searching Pinterest for everything from day-to-day DIY projects (83 per cent of home searches) to remodels, landscaping and other monumental undertakings (60 per cent).
Pinterest trends are unlike any other – they are determined by real people, pinning their passions. Among those are some of the world’s most style-inspired, parenting-passionate, well-travelled, food-smart people. The Pinterest 100 reveals what we're dreaming about for the year ahead.
Without further ado, let's see what's in store for our homes in 2019...
