Coming in third behind Facebook and Twitter, the site is a marvel when it comes to decorating ideas. Just type in whatever you are looking for a and a host of different images and how-to guides will be at your fingertips.
The site is easy to use, though people do require invitations to join. But now instead of having to bookmark various sites and keep them all organized you can have all your different inspirations and ideas in one place.
