How Pinterest Is Revolutionizing The Home Decor Industry [Infographic]

By Megan O'Neill 

Pinterest has really exploded in recent months and HSN Home Decor has done a little bit of research to find out how it, and other social media sites, are revolutionizing the home décor industry.

The infographic, ‘How Social Media Is Revolutionizing Home Décor,’ takes a look at the ways in which consumers are using sites like Pinterest, Facebook, Houzz, Homemint and others “to find inspiration, plan projects and perpetuate their home décor addiction.”

On Pinterest, home décor is the number one most-followed industry.  The infographic reports that over 6 months, “House Beautiful magazine pulled triple-digit increases in site referrals as a direct result of Pinterest” and “ received more traffic during the summer of 2011 from Pinterest than from Facebook and Twitter combined.”  Pretty impressive, eh?
