Interior Inspirations from My Web Favs: Freshome

The favorite design blog series is back featuring Freshome, a site I love because it provides exactly as its name infers: fresh ideas for your home. Obviously I'm not alone; the site boasts 2 million visitors a month. The site has so much to offer, from room-specific interior solutions, architecture, gadgets and innovations, to case goods and furniture. The possibilities for redesigning your home are endless.

Here's what i think makes Freshome so great:
  • Navigation. Looking for specific inspiration for your bedroom, or maybe your kitchen? At the top of the site, there are links that allow you to search for inspiration from apartments, architecture, bathrooms, bedrooms, furniture, kitchens, or living rooms.

  • Another great feature is the "Best Of" tab that has all their most successful and useful articles like "30 Beautiful and Relaxing Bathroom Design Ideas." Home spa? Yes, please! 
                                 Tab = "Best Of"
  • Informative. Not only is their written information on point, just the scan of the images can provide you with what you need. It's inevitable that you'll leave with great idea after perusing the site. You're bound to find one or two... or twenty ideas, that really inspire you to freshen up your own home.

  • Ratings. Want to know what other viewers have found to be the most interesting articles today? How about in the past week or in the past month? Check out the "Most-Viewed" section along the mid-right margin which shows which articles have been most popular today, this week or this month.  It may just be the stop you need to take a break from your hectic day for a few minutes. Something like "23 Amazing Bedrooms with a Panoramic View of the Ocean" might help you escape? Now who wouldn't like that?

Stop on over to Freshome and let me know what you think. If you are really intrigued you can learn more about Freshome - and provide feedback as to what you would like to see more of, see improved, etc. - on Tuesday, Jan. 11 at 6pm EDT. Micle Mihai Cristian, the founder of Freshome is going to be the Guest Host on the weekly Twitter Interior Designer Chat, all the way from Romania!

If you are unable to make the chat, Micle would still love to hear from you.  He sent me a message on Twitter requesting not only positive feedback but also suggestions for what readers "don't like or what they could do better".   So if you have some constructive feedback to offer Micle, please feel free to offer it up. He's all ears!
