Anything that ends in 'Z' sounds cooler

Like, instead of being like "Hey boys, what's up?" you could say, "hey boyZ wazzzuup" - see how much cooler that is?  Much like my new fave home design and decor blog, Houzz.  They have bazillions of room pix, and you can slice and sort them based on your style or by room type.  Well I like LOTS of styles, kind of all MASHED-UP, so that would be eclectic.  So, clicked the "eclectic" box and it came back with 32,000 pix - decided to whittle it down a bit and chose 'living room' in addition.  Here are some FAB pix it came back with - super inspired!

Love the white and simplicity of this room, especially the large black and white photos:

Pop of color with the turquoise island is just enough and a bit unexpected:

Strong lines of the black and white striped curtains tie nicely with the softness of the pale pink sofa and feminine furniture:

I'm ga-ga for the chevron zig zag rug, want it so badly . . . notice how the big pattern of the rug compliments the small pattern in the curtains:

Love the pop of yellow against the fairly traditional grey walls and cream curtains:

This room just makes me happy.  Great mix of modern lines on the sofa with the rustic beams on the ceiling. White walls (my fave) are a great backdrop for the bright mix of art and furniture:

Bright turquoise toned down with glossy black and a tiny pop of pink just works:

YUUUP, this is my favorite, and look - the F is my last name initial too!  Love the industrial look of the brick walls, the huge black and white photo and the unexpected color of the chandelier.  Did you notice the chandelier has round bulbs instead of traditional tapered ones - brings a modern touch:

So, go look around on Houzz and see if you find anything that strikes your fancy!
