How to Pin Like an Expert

Last week we deemed the fabulously creative Baba Souk an expert pinner! I'm always amazed at how wonderfully curated some Pinterest accounts are, and there is a little bit of strategy to making those stunning collections! Here are a four things I've picked up along the way:

1. Don't be afraid to pin the obscure. Those images that make you pause, because they're so strange and so beautiful.

2. Following a basic color palate, or intensity is supreme. Bri Emery from Design Love Fest is great at this! Just look at these gorgeous color stories!

3. There's no need to pin only one board at a time. In fact, giving your pinning variety makes it interesting and surprising for followers. That color story from above will give it cohesion. So take some liberties and pin artwork, clothing, nature, animals, and even food. The light and color of the photos will give it sense.

4. Pin vertically! Portrait photos will give your account a linear look, encouraging followers to scroll through. It also is visually more please, as they tend to show up larger on Pinterest, while landscape photos can look shrunken.
