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...
