Peeping! Apartmenttherapy.com

Some time ago I discovered the website Apartmenttherapy.com and I was immediately hooked! This website is somewhat like a showcase for inspiring interiors of 'real' people with hundreds of pictures of their homes. One can spend hours looking at beautifully decorated homes. The site also offers many tips, DIY ideas, news items and great addresses. But the greatest thing about is that I can spend hours peeping into other people's homes! www.apartmenttherapy.com
