As a designer, I find inspiration comes from all corners of my life. My travels, museums, trade shows, and magazines are just a few sources, but the list is nearly endless. Most of my clients collect inspiration in a similar way, and it’s often helpful for them to keep a visual record of ideas they want to integrate into their homes. This is why I like the relatively new site Houzz.com, which allows you to create inspiration boards related to interior design and architecture.
I’ve had a Houzz account for a while, but recently added a number of S.B. Long Interiors projects to feature. I think the site provides a wonderful tool for people to collect their ideas, as well as become introduced with interior designers and architects in their area. It’s also pure eye candy—sort of a Pinterest for home design.
Following are a just few of the images I recently added:
