I thought i`d share some home inspiration today

I have a thing for new homes. Not just any new home, but those that offer something unique, different, memorable. Not your typical 2 story 4 bedroom colonial with a double garage and a front porch. There must be something different about it for me to be drawn to it. It could be a vaulted ceiling, the front door, or even a kitchen sink that could draw me into such a house, and love it.

Many an evening or lunch-hour is spent online going through house tours on websites such as Apartment Therapy, and Dwell magazine, looking for inspiration, and something different that peeks my interest. I think I’m mentally storing the images I see so that one day when my husband and I do decide to buy a home, I can bring these images and idea’s with me, with my own personal touch of course. I thought I’d share some of my favourite homes with you today that I’ve saved and collected this year.

I love this dresser, obviously hand painted with care

Does your own home inspire you? Would you like to share your home with other DecorAddict readers? I think this is the time that DecorAddict started its own house tour’s, don’t you? If you would like to have your home featured on DecorAddict, please email me ( a photo or two of your home (interior and/or exterior), and a paragraph or 2 on why your home inspires you, and what you have done to achieve that inspiration.

I’ll feature as many as I can, all depending on how many I receive of course. Wow. This is exciting !!! Our own house tours. Cool !!!

If you too are a house-tour addict, Apartment Therapy has a few posted each week!

I never thought I'd enjoy chartreuse on a chair, but this works
