I shared this cool trick I discovered on Pinterest on my Instagram story, but since those disappear after 24 hours, and have had a few questions about it, I decided to share it here, too. So many times, our favorite inspiring spaces on Pinterest, are full of droll-worthy products and pieces that really make the space and are sometimes even the reason we pin a picture in the first place. So I was really excited to find a way to find the sources for these products within Pinterest!
Let’s take Sugar Paper’s stationary display that I pinned from Lonny.com as inspiration for our One Room Challenge as an example. I loved the shallow shelves, but I really really loved the straight-armed scones.
If you click on the magnifying glass in the upper right hand corner of the photo (you will have to be hovering over the photo for it to appear), it will bring up visibly similar results. This is a great way to find the image source, too, as it will likely bring up the same image pinned from other sources, including the original.
In addition to visually similar rooms, a cropping tool will also show up on your original pinned picture. All you have to do is crop the exact product you’re interested in visually similar products will pop up next to it! Including, the product the majority of the time.
I love this reading nook I pinned from @kathykuohome, had the most adorable wallpaper. I hit that magnifying glass, and cropped in on the wallpaper to find the source.
I’ve used this trick to find sources for the prettiest lights, wallpaper, textiles including pillows, throws and bedspreads, and even art hanging in my pinned spaces. Pretty cool, right? Hope this helps!
