Want to know one of my very favourite places to get inspiration for colour and design? No, it's not Pinterest.
My favourite design inspiration site on the web is Houzz.com. It could be my online addiction. I can sit in bed and flip through pictures on my iPad until late at night. I know exactly how I would love to renovate and redesign my master bedroom, master bathroom, fireplace, floors, kitchen, basement, powder room. All inspired by Houzz.com and maybe winning a lottery.
At my last visit there were over 700,000 photos uploaded to the site. What I like best is they are all high quality pictures. We even use it at Warline to showcase our own projects. You can check out our photo galleries here:
But Houzz.com isn't just about inspiration and pretty pictures. There is some great advice on everything from renovating, decorating to staging your home for sale. One of my very favourite contributors is Kristie Barnett, The Decorologist. If you are getting your home ready to sell, here is a great article on how to maximize your dollars. Kristie also wrote this great article on Staging vs. Decorating. She even featured a house we painted.
And if you don't have your own Ipad yet, now is your chance. Houzz.com is giving away a new Ipad in a contest. All you have to do is simply write a review on their website and you will be entered to win a new Apple Ipad. Click here for the link.
Good luck with the contest and if you are one of Warline's customers we'd love the review. Of course we'll also be happy to help you out when all that Houzz.com inspiration has you redesigning your rooms too.
