There is an endless array of sources for home inspiration out there, but many times the homes feel out of touch, over our budget or not actually lived in at all. IKEA's newish website, IKEA Family Live, is a great way to check out homes that are not only accessible, but also occupied.
The IKEA Family Live website is an online version of the magazine of the same name. The site features great photos of real homes along with floor plans (with furniture arrangements) and guides to help you "get the look".
IKEA Family Live currently features 18 different homes ranging from houseboats to dorm rooms and homes of couples to large families. Since these aren't from the IKEA catalog, the homes aren't chock full of IKEA items...rather they show how pieces can fit into a stylish and eclectic decorated home. The styles of the homes featured vary widely as well. Readers can also share their own photos on the site.
Thanks to decor8 for pointing out this site!
