The other day I shared a post about the most pinned kitchens on my kitchens that’ll make you drool board. Today, it’s living rooms. Before I go on… These are not necessarily my most favorite living rooms, just the ones that appealed to the most people who follow my boards. They’re all terrific however, and I’ve included a few nice surprises.
Before I get to the pretty pictures, a few [dozen] ;] words about pinterest. It’s an amazing resource which if y’all don’t know already, it has just about everything on there you can think of. There doesn’t seem to be a size restriction on images, however and the other thing is that the majority of folks don’t bother with attribution. This is why it is so, so helpful for people to watermark their images. Again, that’s more unusual unless it’s a tutorial. In addition, many of these photos are not the actual photos from my boards. I went and sought out the bestest, clearest, images I could find.
One day, I want to share with you my favorite boards. My friend and colleague Carla Aston, periodically holds a “best of pinterest” It’s a great list, so please check it out, when you have a few days vacation. ;]
Popular Living Rooms on Pinterest

One of the most popular living rooms ever. And of course it is! It has all of the elements— superb architecture, pretty and soothing colors– classic furnishings and just the right amount of accessories.
Here’s another one and let me tell you… it is not easy to find out that this is Anne’s brilliant work. She’s undoubtedly too busy to care [too much.]
detail shot of the trim. Alright. I have been doing this exact same treatment— Greek key border set in just like this for at least 14 years. And I’m going to be doing it again soon. What makes this so fresh is the pink. Pink is the new beige?
Capella Kincheloe is smart. See the watermark? I posted this vignette only about 10 days ago and it has been repinned 18 times.
oops! I almost put in this David Easton! haha!
Love this blog! Always am happy when she posts because I know I’m going to get a lot of wonderful room-candy.
I think it was Whoopi Goldberg who said that if you make it, it’s just your good fortune. If you STAY at the top— that’s talent. Aerin is so friggin’ talented, it almost hurts!
John B Murray Architects with interior design by Stephen Sills
Okay. I cheated. This isn’t one of my most popular pins, because I just found it. However, I know it’s going to be a hit! I used to live just a few miles away from Stephen’s giga-gorgeous estate in Bedford Corners, NY. Every time I drove by, I started salivating profusely. He’s another interior design icon who one day, I will honor with a post. Not to be catty or anything, but one time I saw somewhere, maybe Architectural Digest or something that he was selling an antique bench for $60,000. What, did George Washington sit on it or something? :]
Another recently pinned image that was an instant hit.
Ya… That’s vut it says… I absolutely adore Swedish design and colors. [and obviously, I’m not the only one!] I find it so interesting… that in a place with long frigid winters, the Swedes favor colors that mimic ice. And in places like Mexico where it’s hot, they like their bright warm colors. Any ideas why that is so?
Thank you for the watermark!
Lovely, lovely room and much more restrained that most of his work. Love it!

This is a very popular image and I had to look and look to find the source.
This pin surprised me with its popularity; not that I don’t like it; I do, but I think that there are better rooms that don’t get paid any notice at all.
Well… she did an amazing job and then she put it on the market because the following images are from the real estate listing.
The real estate images aren’t on my pinterest boards either, but not for long!
Is there a trend to be found with the most popular living rooms? Yes, I think so. I pin rooms with all sorts of palettes and yet, here the most prevalent color is blue, followed by gray, taupe, beige, cream and white. There’s the occasional pop of pink or red, but otherwise, pretty quiet. I love that too!
