Where can I find interior decorating ideas that are realistic & not from multimillion dollar homes?
We are in the process of buying a home. It's a "regular" home- no open floor plans, vaulted ceilings, slanted doorways, entire walls of windows, spiral staircases, claw foot tubs, etc... Just a regular house with regular rooms, carpeted floors, 4 bedrooms, a kitchen, dining room, basement, deck, living room & 2 bathrooms. Anyways, the people who lived there before have not paid in 2 years and we are purchasing via short sale. They had hideous taste and most of the rooms are a combination of navy blue, pale yellow, and bright yellow with lots of tacky sunflower trims and switch plates. The carpet is all stained beige and will be replaced also. We are going to have to start at the flooring and move our way up, painting and redoing everything.
I have been trying to find some interior design websites that have REALISTIC pictures/idea. I don't need ideas for 10 million dollar homes with 16 foot ceilings and such... just regular square/rectangle rooms with regular rectangular windows.... regular bathrooms with your average tub/toilet/sink.... etc! I find the other unrealistic pictures to be really hard to relate to since obviously my home will look nothing like that. There has to be a website that caters to AVERAGE homes? I mean.... the majority of people do have just regular homes.... so why is this so hard to find?
