Online Design Tools :: Inspiration Wednesday

So today’s inspiration literally came in my inbox this morning!  Let me tell you that I am in LOVE with Serena and Lily and all of their beautiful linens.  Their designs are gorgeous and the colors are fantastic.  They have chosen colors to repeat through all of their designs so that you can mix and match almost all of their patterns!  If you can remember back to here I took their Ronan set as inspiration for Jake’s room re-do.  Then after a bit of convincing I took the plunge and ordered his new duvet set from West Elm here.

Okay so back to Serena and Lily, they have introduced the “MAKE your BED” and “MAKE your kid’s BED” it is “The mix-and-match-online-to-find-your-favorite-design tool.”  Let me tell you this is so cool.  I’m a visual person so these online design centers make me so happy!

With the design tool you can pick a duvet, sheets, shams, blankets and even throw pillows to create the perfect bed.  Not only can you create a new look for your master bedroom…

…but you can also re-do the kids room while you are at it!

After playing around with beautiful lines for a while it got me thinking how much I love online design tools.  Take for instance Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer.  It allows you to upload photos of your own home and then choose from over 1,500 Sherwin Williams colors to put on YOUR walls.  No more needing to guess what a room will look like when you are done painting.  You can see it before you even pick up a paint brush!

I know there are tons of great floor planning programs out there as well.  I’ve always wanted to make an interactive floor plan of our home.  Wouldn’t it be so much easier to drag a sofa from one wall to another on a computer screen than actually across your living room floor?

Have you ever used an online design program?  Tell me all about it!
