What are your favorite inspiration sources?
I'm going to say it that way, so we'll get more information.
These days, we all get free catalogs in the mail (and how).
We all visit web sites online.
We subscribe to online BLOGS.
We watch TV.
We sometimes visit pretty stores, not just Home Depot!!
We pick up magazines at the grocery, or we subscribe.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I suppose I like really thick picture books about gardening and decorating. I won't attempt to list them here, since it would take too long.
Next would be printed catalogs. Naming a few:
Room and Board
Smith & Hawkins (until they crashed and burned)
I love Rhoda at SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY
Hooked on Houses (her series on Movie Houses is great)
And TV shows:
Divine Design w/ Candice Olsen
Scott McGillivray on INCOME PROPERTY (handsome too)
Sabrina Soto...Get It Sold
HOARDERS (oh man, this one KILLS ME)
Mike Holmes....Holmes on Homes
I suppose there are others. I'm not fond of anything on the DIY network, which is a big disappointment to me. They holler too much, it is a lot of "man caves" and testosterone flying around to be inspirational, other than off-putting.
