On Inspiration

While writing I often have to pause to seek out inspiration for something, be it a character’s appearance, clothing, home or even the city they live in. I recently realized I didn’t have any clue what the interior of my latest hero’s house should look like. Knowing he was dominant, ambitious and a fan of the nicer things in life, I had to find just the right place to compliment his personality. In comes my inspiration links.

The first one I tried was a design blog I follow called Design Milk When this didn’t give me anything quickly enough I moved on.

Mosiac, a wonderful blog that aggregates loads of other blogs and displays it in a pretty way was my next stop. Specifically I was interested in the Architecture section but it’s also great for fashion and photography.

Using this I found a post I’d saved ages ago from http://trendland.net that was promising.

Other blogs I follow for design/interior/architectural inspiration are:
http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/ (this goes along with my favorite foodie blog, http://www.thekitchn.com/)

Cuded has had some unique interiors posted on their blog.

And here’s another one in NY that’s just interesting to read period, http://www.scoutingny.com/.

What are your sites for inspiration?
