Houzz
By • Filed In: Websites We Love

Since Cort shared the wonderful world of Beso the other day, I thought I’d continue to share the love of websites and introduce you to Houzz.  When I explain Houzz to friends, I describe it as Pinterest but just for interior decorating.  I already have a Dream Home board on Pinterest, but Houzz takes my outrageously far fetched dreams to a whole new level.

 

Houzz is a library of photographs of the most B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. homes.  You can search photographs by rooms or by your decorating style.  Then, once you open a photo, if there is a green tag on an item (a light fixture for example) you can click on it and it explains where the item is from and what the price is.  Sometimes they list the paint color, too.  Here’s what a search may look like.

You can then create your own favorite idea boards, just like Pinterest, for each room you’re dying to fantasize about (or actually redesign if you’re feeling handy or have money to spend).  Here are some of my favorite photographs I’ve found…

Have fun fantasizing your dream home!  Maybe one day it will become a reality.  That’s what I’m wishing for, at least.

About the Author

I think chocolate and cheese should be their own food group. Or, at least I treat them as if they are. To say I like wine is an understatement. I hope to one day call myself a professional photographer, but in the meantime, I'll just pretend I am. I'm a second grade teacher by day but a potty mouth by night.
