If you’ve not read my blog recently, say in the last 6 months, you might not know that we are renovating, BIG time. Currently it is all outside work that is going on, but it won’t be long until we start on the inside stuff and I am facing the daunting task of making final decisions about fittings and fixtures. Now I need a LOT of help when it comes to make big decisions like this… I mean what do I put on our bathroom floors that will be both easy to lay, functional, easy to keep clean, and look good?
To help with the daunting task of decision making, and because sometimes it is just easier to get lost in house dreamland instead of actually making any of these decisions…. I spend rather a lot of time looking at inspiring homes and interiors online.
Of course Pinterest is now my drug of choice when it comes to things like this. It is perfect for quick visual hits to ponder over. I have an ‘Inspiration for our Home‘ board and there are heaps of other peoples great house and interiors boards to peruse!
Other sites I like to peruse…
I really like the Design Files because it has lots of Australian content… much better to drool over items that I might actually be able to buy here, you know, when we win lotto!
I like Shelterness because it has lots of great doable and DIY ideas. Lots of ‘real’ images of interiors mixed in with a few of those unattainable magazine home type photos. Remodelista is all about renovating so it’s right up my alley
There are also some great Tumblr Blogs packed with inspiration – two of my favs are This Pretty Space and My Ideal Home. And the Decorating Forums are a fab place to get lots of friendly, Aussie based, real life advice and ideas… I think I am about to become it’s most frequent poster! LOL
What are your favourite places to find house and home inspiration online?
