• Tell Your Friends

Inspiration comes in all different places, but sometimes you need inspiration on demand. For times like that I hit the net. I start off by looking at the rooms that HGTV viewers like YOU send in for Rate My Space. After that, I go to my favorite blog (second to Design Happens, of course!).

Desire to Inspire has hundreds of new inspiring images of professionally designed spaces each week. Daily, they update the blog with pictures of beautiful and unique homes. When I’m decorating someone’s home, I ask them to go to Desire to Inspire to tell me what spaces they are attracted to. When I’m decorating my own home, I spend weeks saving images from Desire to Inspire in my “Inspiration Files” and then one night, I sit down and try to figure out what all of my favorite rooms have in common.









Clearly, all of the spaces I’ve been drawn to lately have crisp white walls. This weekend, I’m throwing a painting party with all my girlfriends and covering up the color in my living room with a fresh, clean, white.
