Oh, Pinterest, how we love you so. We’re all about anything that will help spark creativity, and this social media definitely does that — it’s kind of the whole point of it. Whether it’s giving you inspiration for a holiday display or helping you figure out what to make for dinner, the site has quickly become a resource for over 70 million users across the globe. Were guessing you probably saw a lot of radiant orchid and medium haircuts show up on your feed in 2014, but what can you expect for next year? Well lucky for you, you don’t have to wait to find out.
The company has released the Pinterest 100, a board of predictions of what will be big next year in the popular categories. Here’s a look at a few things you can expect to see in 2015.

7. Outdoor Travel: From glaciers, to the Northern Lights, to hot springs countries like Iceland and Patagonia, the world has some seriously epic nature to offer. Grab a parka and get your tickets now, people.
8. Smart Watches: Apple, Samsung, Motorola, take your pick. Phones are no longer just for phone calls, so why should watches just be for telling time?
9. Digital Double Exposure: Film might sadly be a novelty these days, but thankfully all the magic of the old technique is not lost. We’ve been seeing some really cool, digitally created double exposures recently and it looks like this is just the beginning.
10. Vertical Gardens: Whether you’re living in a small space or you just want to spice up your gardening game, there are so many different ways to start a vertical garden. Not only will you be able to make your own meal with what you grow, but it will also look totally amazing in your home.
