We’ve all been there; a desire to do something different and creative but the ideas just don’t come. For me, this is especially true when it comes to home design. Whether you’re building a new home, moving to a new home, renovating an older home, or just trying to make your current home more “you,” sometimes your mind’s canvas simply goes blank. It happens to professionals and amateurs alike. So, where do you go to get your artistic juices flowing once again? We did a little research and found some great websites where you’ll find home design inspiration.
