Earlier this month I was asked to be an Editorial Contributor to Houzz and I couldn’t be more excited! Houzz is a community of home design enthusiasts from around the world. It’s the online version of cutting pages out of magazines and stuffing them in a folder – but much easier to search, save, and share. My assignment is to create two ideabooks a week and to answer your design questions online.
On the Houzz platform, design professionals showcase their portfolios, sharing their work with a community dedicated to home and landscape design. 10,000+ professionals have uploaded more than 60,000 inspiring photographs, making Houzz the internet’s largest database of design and decorating ideas. Homeowners collect their favorite photos, find design professionals in their areas, upload photos of their homes and gardens, and swap tips and questions with other members. 120,000+ ideabooks have been created by Houzz members, and new ones are added every minute.
Shelter Pop says, “So long scrapbooks and online bookmarks! Thanks to the new Houzz app for iPad, you now have a digital place to sort, save and share your favorite home design ideas… But beware: Like candy for design addicts, once you start perusing the Houzz pages, it can be hard to stop. Consider yourself warned.”
