Inspiration Part II

*Wipes sweat from brow* Phew. If you’re not the type to cut up magazines—I guess there ARE some of you out there—I have great news. It seems so simple, and frankly quite obvious, but I never put two and two together. Once I actually started doing it, it was like a little revolution. If you know me, you will know that I LOATHE technology, but trust me, this is simple. If you see something you this:

or this lovely:

Simply do the following:

1. right click
2. save picture as
3. drop into your “inspiration folder”
4. bonus points for sub folders organized by room type—kitchen, bedroom, etc. (super bonus points for folders organized by room element—bedroom: paint colors, living room: artwork)

And VOILA! A less messy, quicker and easier way to file (and find) your dream rooms, your somedays and your if onlys.

The interwebs offers a host of BEAUTIFUL design content. Here are a few of my favorite spots for design inspiration:

Apartment Therapy
Young House Love
Brooklyn Limeston
Style Me Pretty
Style Court

There are quite literally thousands more. The wealth of design content on the internet is so inspiring. There are dream rooms and sources, DIY disasters, ideas, tips, hints, tutorials and more. My age old obsession has suddenly gone digital.

What are your favorite sources for design inspiration? What am I missing out on?
