If I spent as much time as I do on Pinterest, on well, any other aspect of my life then I’m certain I would be a far more successful human in every sense. Who knows maybe my spelling, grammar and ability to construct sentences might even be better. So why do I choose to spend so much time on the idea-sharing app? Well not only because it’s a great place to find inspiration but also, it’s a great place to spot emerging trends.
With 250 million people visiting the site every month there seems to be no place more equipped to spot a trend. That is exactly what they do every year with ‘Pinterest 100’ a report in which they share the top 100 trends for the following year. So what can we expect to see in 2019?
Must have Mustard:
Searches for mustard yellow are up 45%. Try this trend with small accents of the colour or fully embrace it with bold mustard walls.
Searches for textile art are up a massive 1718%. People are looking for interesting ways to decorate their walls and textiles are the next big thing!
