            Yes, I spelled that correctly. Houzz ( is a great resource for everything home and interiors related. According to their website, their goal is “to connect millions of homeowners, home design enthusiasts and home improvement professionals across the country and around the world. With the largest residential design database in the world and a vibrant community powered by social tools, Houzz is the easiest way for people to get the design inspiration, project advice, product information and professional reviews they need to help turn ideas into reality.”


            If you have not already discovered this website, visit it ASAP. Like one of my friends recently remarked, “After spending only one hour on this site, I am addicted! I think I am going to need an intervention!” Houzz has a great search feature. Looking for tile backsplash ideas? Or front porch ideas? Their easily searchable database of pictures is sure to turn up something that will catch your eye. You can also search by style, like Cape Cod, Southwestern, etc.


            Like Pinterest, Houzz also has “Ideabooks” you can save favorite pictures to. Some ideas are Closet, Wine Cellar, Pantry, or Kitchen.  Organize your favorites by room and you will be ready to go whenever you can pull the trigger on your project. Sometimes deciding what you want is half of the battle.

So jump on in and explore the world of Houzz. Even if you are not planning a project now, it is still a great resource to know about.
