I love being a part of the amazing houzz community I joined back in 2010. This year, I am thrilled to be a part of the group of design professionals who have been awarded the 'houzz Best Of 2014', including two distinct categories: Design as well as Customer Satisfaction. I'm very honored and would like to thank my clients, the houzz team, and all the houzzers who enjoyed looking through my pictures (plus contributors who featured a few too!)This is truly an honor and I am very grateful...
Besides client projects, some of my holiday decor has been a favorite from houzzers as well...
This winter tablescape I did has been added to 4346 ideabooks plus, another angle of the same table has been added to another 1003 ideabooks.
If you've known me or been following me since I first came online (back in 2007 when Rate My Space was the only place to upload and share home decor ideas and photos), you'll remember my "JOY" mirrors I made for our Christmas 2008 bedroom. This was also one of the first uploads I made to houzz, and this room has been added to 7509 ideabooks from one photo, and another 2699 ideabooks from a photo at another angle.
Two other popular ideabook adds is a purple tablescape for Holiday, added to 3191 ideabooks at Winter Holiday Plum - and my mummy for Halloween, added to 2220 ideabooks you can see here.
Houzz has done an excellent job from their inception of bringing together design professionals and homeowners and giving them a platform to showcase, share and even engage in discussions right on the site. Houzz even has a "Add To Ideabook" button for your browser bar (they did before Pinterest came around), badges & widgets for your site, and even decals & magnets for your automobile PLUS a mobile app.
I believe a huge driver of photos getting added to ideabooks is not only with tagging and labeling them with links to your blog or site, but also due to the talented team of contributors houzz has on staff, who comb through the uploaded photos to create featured ideabooks. (You can click through my features at Media)... and now even guest contributors and bloggers have been added to create their "Picks" of items or trends. Houzz was also just part of the presentation at the Design Tech Summit in Vegas this week during KBIS 2014!
