As any designer can tell you, inspiration can come from anywhere, at any time. From having lunch at a new restaurant in town, to watching a beautiful French film, it is almost impossible not to feel inspired numerous times throughout the day.
In addition to the surroundings that inspire us, one of our favorite ways to see fresh ideas, concepts, and design schemes is through reading blogs that focus on interior design. It is interesting to see elements from the perspective of other designers. We are constantly amazed at the new posts and fabulous photos they come up with. Although there are dozens of blogs we enjoy following, listed below are few of our favorites; along with what makes them special. Of course we encourage you decide for yourself and click on the links to subscribe to the ones you love!
