I have to admit to being a bit of a Pinterest addict, checking the app several times a day for random inspiration, not just for specific research. And why not? The way it feeds your obsession is remarkable...remembering what you looked at last and suggesting similar images and, when you click on a particular image, the endless scroll of "this may be what you're looking for" can really make you spin down the rabbit hole like Alice. So when we read about Diane Keaton building a house from her Pinterest inspiration, and taking it two steps further and publishing a book about it, we knew we were not alone. And hey, if it's ok for Hollywood megastar Diane Keaton, then it's certainly ok for us.
The House That Pinterest Built is made up of 300 photographs of Keaton's new 8,000-square-feet home supported by photographic essays, how tos, and, of course, her Pinterest inspiration. Keaton's house, constructed of no less than 75,000 bricks is in the Sullivan Canyon outskirts of Brentwood, mixes industrial vibes with farmhouse style in a timeless, effortless way. It's an absolutely stunning project and book.
