Year in Review | Top Pinterest Pins for 2016
With the holidays in the rear view mirror and the new year upon us, it’s fun not only to reflect on the past 12 months but to look ahead and plan for 2017. Many people use post-holiday weeks to take stock in their home — to see what needs repairing, refreshening, or a major overhaul. When it comes to finding inspiration for your home renovation projects, the choices can be overwhelming.
Pinterest is one of our favorite places to find inspiration and capture images for home design, lighting, and other décor. Today, we’re taking a look back at some of our most popular pins from the Barn Light Electric Pinterest boards to see what trends might be shaping up for the new year.
Our top pin of the year was this beautiful Wheeler™ Esso Wall Sconce. This compact wall light is hand spun from commercial grade steel and finished in a creamy jadite porcelain enamel. Available in two shade sizes, this wall sconce fits so many spaces from laundry rooms and bathrooms to hallways and front porches.
Barn pendants were also popular over the last 12 months as homeowners and business owners alike tried to capture rustic charm in their spaces. Easy-to-customize ceiling pendants, like these Original™ Warehouse Pendants, offer focused downlighting in kitchens, living spaces, and even in wedding venues such as the one pictured above in California.
Rustic charm was a hot search topic in 2016 and we don’t see a slowdown anytime soon. Our Rustic Charm Board on Pinterest is one of our most popular and includes not only beautiful images of Rustic Pendants but also farmhouse doors, live-edge headboards, and rustic shelving ideas.
We also enjoyed finding new pinners to follow in 2016. Some of our favorites are CentsationGirl’s Inspiring Living Spaces and this gorgeous Office Spaces board from Wit & Delight. And don’t miss Kevin O’Gara, a young but up-and-comer in the design world. His Details/Home Decor board is a must see!
