Apartment Therapy has built up an amazing resource of images over the years — everything from striped bedrooms to small bathrooms. So if you're looking for immediate eye candy, skip the jib-jab and go straight to what you're looking for — here's how!

With each post our Editors and Contributors write, we make sure to label our photos so they're easily found later on down the line. Although some might escape this process, for the most part, we do our best to label a red bedroom as…a red bedroom. Instead of searching through the site (which you're still welcome to do, that method works just fine), try using Google to help you streamline the process. Here's how:

In the Google search bar (or your web address bar for Chrome users like me), type the following and personalize it for what you're looking for, in this case, we've used bathrooms as an example:

site: apartmenttherapy.com bathroom

Make certain to filter by choosing "Images" and that's all there is to it. It will pull up photos that have appeared all over Apartment Therapy and it's respective sister sites.

To go more in depth and search by color, you can select a color range in the menu on the right — or you can also include the color name in your search terms. It's a fast and easy way to get a burst of eye candy without having to dig through post after post to gain a little inspiration.

Make sure to click through on the image to check out the post that the photo was featured in, you never know what additional inspiration you'll find along the way. Go ahead, give it a try!
