I’ve often been inspired by remodelista.com. Lots of photographs and references. Includes links to sources and often can go direct to purchase. Good website navigation and e-letter…no flashing ads or tons of drill down. They travel the globe to bring ideas from all continents … commercial and residential. Everyone I’ve recommended this site to has thanked me for the lead.
