I love when I find an online resource that is helpful and I can pass it along to you! Have you heard of the website houzz.com? If you

haven’t you must check it out. There are so many pictures and links to shopping sites for your home that your creative juices will certainly be flowing within minutes of visiting the website. I love getting ideas on the site.

This past week the website made itself even more spectacular. They opened an online forum for you to post questions about all kinds of home topics and get feedback from the community of professionals and homeowners that regularly visit houzz.com.  For example, today I read discussion threads on choosing accent colors and even reconfiguration of a kitchen. All you have to do is snap a picture, upload it to the forum and ask away!

We all love to ask our friends, but I really love the idea of getting professional feedback and even feedback from someone who doesn’t know me and has never seen my house!  Or do you have a talent for seeing things through a fresh set of eyes? Yes, well then offer your opinion on the forum!

I’m trying to decide what question I want to ask everyone! I wonder if I could post pictures of every room in my house?!

If you visit the forum and the houzz.com website and that little voice in the back of your head gets louder about wanting to find a new home for you and your family, visit the Atlanta Fine Homes website and see the available inventory in the greater Atlanta area. Or give me a call, I would love to help you find a place to put all those ideas you get into action!
