Houzz

I have discovered almost all of my favourite design and decor websites through the world of blogging. I sit back on my lazy bum and let others do the hard work discovering these sites and sharing them with the world. That's why I was a bit flabbergasted when my hubbie, of all people, was the one to introduce me to my new absolute favourite, droolsome, time-sapping website www.houzz.com

Visit at your own peril, there are THOUSANDS of stunning home decor images, divided into categories such as eclectic, traditional, contemporary etc. You can browse these beautiful images and add them to your own "ideabook", basically a scrapbook of all your faves. You can browse other users' ideabooks and the search function is fantastic. I am a bit obsessed with open shelving in kitchens and when I searched "Open Shelves Kitchen" over 4,000 fab images were sprung upon me.

I can't believe I've never come across this website through the blogosphere so just thought I'd share in case others hadn't heard of it. They also have a fantastic iPad app that allows you to flick through the images like a gorgeous magazine.


Enjoy! And don't say I didn't warn you...

thanks for telling us about this - though I am not daring to look it up yet; not if I am going to stand any chance of getting out the house at some point today;)
about to have my kitchen redone, and am really "mourning" having to sacrifice some of my open shelving to make way for cupboards... hopefully will get some ideas!

Oh gee, thank you! As if I'm not spending enough time on my computer, lol!!!

Actually, I do mean it, thank you, it's a fabulous website. As I am moving soon, I can definitely use the inspiration to decorate the new (to us) house!

Have a great week-end.

It is one of my favourites! As we are about to renovate I have found it super useful as well. x

PS. I found a turquoise pyrex dish with the snowflake pattern at my favourite op shop this morning and had to get it. I think you might have started something!!!

Found you via your interview with Van. Don't even mention this site. It's a huge time sink for me, and I've vowed I need to stay away. Gorgeous things! {but I really am plugging my ears and saying la,la,la loudly so I can't hear you. Lol.}
