Great Decor Websites for Inspiration
Published April 22, 2015
There are so many fantastic blogs and websites on the Internet now, it’s hard to keep track of them.
Whenever I come across one I think I would like to pass on to friends and family I move it into a folder on my desktop.
Here are two of my favourites from the past months. You may want to bookmark a couple of them for future reference.
Evelyn Piotrowska is a Scottish-born architect who has a very interesting blog. She’s passionate about teaching design tips and tricks.
What caught my eye was her DIY section on how to hang picture frames and create a gallery wall. I love the look of a collage of photo frames on a home’s wall but it can be a very daunting task to organize and display them properly. Piotrowska has a tab on the right hand side of her home page where you can click and find the section to see how she demonstrates various scenarios of walls within the home and how to properly display your frames based on the selected sizes.
If you scroll down you’ll see a number of examples of layouts to suit your desired situation. Further down the site is a technique that shows how to cut large construction paper pieces and use painter’s tape to apply to the wall. Once you have done this, you can take a step back and see if you’re happy with the layout.
Photo arranging templates may be found on many Internet sites. If you decide to browse the web, look for sites that offer good illustrations and easy-tofollow advice. Some of them can be a bit confusing and over the top.

Meghan Cooper is the mother of two young girls and runs a very busy household.
The reason I love this site is that most of the time life isn’t glamorous. We are all looking for tips and tricks to make our house run a bit more smoothly and this site offers some great suggestions and tips.
Click on the Create tab and scroll down to Organizing. A good number of us have cupboards that look a lot like her “before” photos. Cooper offers some great suggestions and “after” photos for organizing your pantry, under the sink and those nasty miscellaneous drawers.
There are a lot of useful tips on this one. I think it’s worth a visit.
