The best part is that, apart from practical advices and interior design pictures, you can also find the details for online stores.
Do we need these blogs?
Yes, we need it if we want a project shaped from our ideas. Of course, not all sites / blogs have quality content and you have quite a large volume to browse. Often, pictures are not enough if not accompanied by some tips. So, we made a top list of the useful sites for home decoration projects.
1. Jurnal de design interior
"Inspiration for your Home" – this is the promise you see when visiting the page. This is one of the most active Romanian interior design blogs, active on all social platforms and really special projects.

4. Adela Parvu
"Interior Design Blogger | We have a single life, so let it be colored!” – Adela began his career as a journalist, then she worked with interior design magazines for polishing and developing her aesthetic sense, to finally set up a blog focused her passion. And then we have her heart project – “Visuri la cheie” (the Romanian verison of Extreme Makeover – Home Edition). Her blog is #generatinginspiration, derived from ideas and experience, so that you find more information, solutions and sources for your home. Apart from decoration projects for apartments, houses or bed & breakfast facilities, you will also find tips and information for your garden – landscaping and what to use for creating a fantasy space – and balconies for apartments in apartment buildings.

If we were to analyze this blogging trend, on macro level is much simpler. The first site anybody visits in search for inspiration (house decoration project, special attire or flower arrangements) – and these are only a couple of the many possibilities – is Pinterest. If we were to define a universal #generatinginspiration, Pinterest would be that. Now, in terms of interior design, architecture and landscaping ideas, definitely English language websites have a wider range, yet you can find or not the content you really need. Perhaps this demand for interior design blogs is bigger also because of the fact that people emphasize more the appearance of a house, regardless of budget. Besides Pinterest, there are many other inspirational sites.
5. Architectural Digest
An American monthly specialized magazine, established in 1920 and focused on design rather than on architecture. The blog is consistent on categories – architecture and design, decoration and renovation, celebrities’ style, lifestyle. This is a magazine aimed at an informed audience with minimum keen sense and desire to improve. Architectural Digest also features the annual list AD100 for acknowledging the most influential interior designers and architects around the world.

Besides articles, Dezeen also features specialized books, related jobs and information about global significant events in terms of design, architecture and art. It is an ideal site for people in search of more trendy colors for 2018, you can discover collections of objects from the most spectacular materials and projects that will amaze you. And if you really want to know, it goes more than this.

We all need inspiring elements for specific times of life / projects – for breaking the routine, completing our projects or building new ones and to discover our potential. Inspiration, in decent dosage, can transform our vision or complement what we have already imagined. Every step we make aims at bringing new perspectives to our readers, to finaly complete their projects as it were imagined. #Generatinginspiration is our belief, guiding us in every step of the way – with inspirational, educational and new things that bring us closer to evolution. A world without inspiration is like a childhood deprived of the Christmas magic, a family without sincere love, or a job without passion. Inspiration is the engine that drives your movement, even for your house decoration project. This inspiration you can find even in the smallest things that you consider insignificant – in people, their ideas, things they do or have already been done. People need stories.
We manage the "story" of your house. Natural stone is an element with more inspiration than you can imagine; it gathers significant information in its structure and this is all accessible to you. Every project we involve in it is like an inspiration for us, therefore we intend to pass it on so that you will no longer look for it somewhere else. However, depending on the complexity of your project and your need for inspiration, you have plenty of options to choose from. Foreing language blogs are a complement for materials written in Romanian, but from both sources you will get a package that will guide you in your projects. Perhaps our society still needs an extra dosage of courage that allows its creative spirit to be free and experience forms, materials and concepts. But until then, we only want you to consider PIATRAONLINE blog as the place to find things you probably didn’t know existed.
