Houzz a 'Must' Resource for Interior Designers & Home Decorators

Beach style spaces by Brisbane Interior Designers & Decorators Michelle Marsden Design

Most of you will be familiar with Pinterest, however, Houzz you may not have heard of. If you are seeking an architect, interior designer, stylist, landscaper or a retail store owner with resources for designers, it is a must place to visit. If you are simply looking for decorating ideas or products to re-decorate your home, again Houzz is a great source of inspiration.

It is simple to create your own Houzz profile, and if you are a professional designer then it is a way of giving yourself on-line presence without the cost of setting up a website. If you already have a website, you can link it to your Houzz profile or vice versa. Once you have created your profile, you can immediately start creating idea books or upload images of your finished projects. If you are simply looking for ideas for your home or next project, you will find endless inspiration. When you explore the site fully, you will discover many handy features. I am not an interior designer by trade, however I do have a Houzz profile, and have found it extremely useful for projects around my home. 

Today I wanted to share a few images of projects by some of the featured designers on Houzz. Not knowing your personal style, I chose varied styles to showcase some very clever designers. Obviously I couldn't share too many images on one post, so if you want to see more of their projects you will find links below.

It was hard to know where to stop with these designs. I saw many stunning projects so next time I will focus on one design project. Enjoy exploring Houzz,  be warned, it is easy to get lost for a few hours.

I hope you have a great weekend, we are still having extreme changes of weather in Auckland so I can't say whether I will be getting out and about much with Poppy, however I have plenty to do inside with starting a new oil painting and planning the re-decoration of my master bedroom.

  1. Gorgeous photos, the first photo reminds me of your place with those lovely blue and white jars. I have kept a lookout for one since seeing yours.


    1. Thanks Kelly for commenting...pity you don't live in NZ as I have lots of blue and white pots and would have happily given you one. If there is a China town in your city you are sure to find something similar there. Or a place that deals with Chinese antiques.
