Here is a nice Interior Design web resource that I just found. The site contains helpful photos, ideas, blogs and resources. Please check it out...
DesignShell.Com is a free online home design resource, here you will find tips and tricks on everything you need to know about home design: interior design, furniture, bedroom, architecture, decor, living room, house, kitchen, bathroom.
The site is a collection of amazing hand made art from artists that specialize in interior design. The site is a brilliant one stop resource for a growing number of artists and professionals in the home decorating industry.
A couple of my favorite things about the site is that it is simply a networking tool to get prospective buyers to individual artists websites and highlights so many great artists and buyers can see a ton of wonderful art all in one stop.
Design Style Guide is very easy to navigate, features treasuries, and only carries high caliber artwork that meets rigorous standards. The editors make sure every posting qualifies to their specific standards.
Here is the description on the Design Style Guide homepage:
If you are an interior designer, decorator, or home stager, this website is designed to help you quickly find that perfect accent to help you sell to your clients. You can search for items by style, color, room, or material, to help you work more efficiently and use less of your valuable time wading through the mountains of things available online.
