Decorating and Remodeling Inspiration

I've been browsing pinterest looking for inspiration for our basement remodel (and every other room I want to make over) and I've been noticing a lot of the beautiful rooms I like are coming from one source. It's called Houzz. "We are a collaborative platform for home remodeling and design, bringing homeowners and home professionals together in a uniquely visual community."

You can browse photos of any room imaginable.  Professionals upload their work (interior designers, home re-modelers etc.) and you can ask questions about the room in comments.  Most professionals are so friendly and accommodating answering anything you can imagine from paint colors used, to where they got the furniture.  It's awesome.  You can also save things to idea boards.  I think I'm going to pin everything I like eventually just to have everything I like in one spot though.  You can also search by a certain paint color and see rooms done in that color (be specific like Benjamin Moore xxxx).  They have great articles, too.  If you are looking for some work to be done you can connect via someone on there and read reviews.  I got my sister hooked on it and she discovered their apps.  They have a separate one just for kid's spaces.  Search for me by my name or if we're friends on facebook you should see me on there.  Check it out.

Here are just a few of the basement inspiration photos I've found while browsing houzz.

I love the floors for a tile/wood look in the basement-

I was looking for root cellars and they made a whole canning room. That's awesome. 
I love how this playroom/kid space has so many diff. things to do. 
All the furniture is kid size. So cool 

*These are all my opinions and no one told me to write this.  I just really like the site.

Nice, cool rooms. Love the look of the root cellar and wine room with the wood and rock walls.

I've seen this site before but never explored it, that's so awesome! Can't wait to see how your basement remodel goes! Wish we were closer to share tips on paint, etc since we are going through all the same things. I need to visit SOON!!

Love these! We're getting ready to redo our basement this spring and I cannot make up my mind as to what I want. I think we'll probably just go for a TV room/kid play area. Nothing fancy. But I'd LOVE to have that wine cellar!
