Creating a nice and warm place to live can be a very tricky thing. Decorating should be a fun part, since you have that advantage to put your own unique character into the room. But planning the design might be a bit confusing. Especially when you do it by yourself.
To be honest, sometimes we really had no idea what to say when a friends asked us for interior or decor advice because we don’t have any interior design nor architecture background. BUT we do love to discuss about ‘finding the inspirations’ for your space. That’s why we always love “inspiration hunting”, because…well, that’s the first thing we need to do before planning the whole renovation or room makeover, right?
So, now we’ll give you our current online sources when it comes to finding an inspirations for interior and decor.

Pinterest is also a great place to find decor inspirations. All you need to do is sign up and browse anyone’s boards from all over the world. We frequently pinned our favorite inspirations to our Pinterest boards too.

One of them was Ayang Cempaka‘s home in Dubai. :)
