I know, it can be hard to find inspiration when you’re looking for new contemporary interior design ideas. I’ve included a couple of the more social sources. I think that it’s important, especially when you’re beginning, to get feedback from others and to develop a community. These are just a couple of the more popular ones that are out there. Let me know which ones you’re using!

Contemporary Interior Design Ideas from Pinterest

Contemporary Interior Design Ideas from PinterestOne of the resources that I’ve found helpful is Pinterest. Pinterest is a great way to visually scan through pictures that other people have posted of their contemporary interior designs. One of the dangers with Pinterest is that there are a lot of great ideas that you can find. Make sure that you have a goal in mind, and know what you are looking for before you sign on. If not, you’ll be browsing for hours. Also, if you find someone with similar taste and ideas as you, follow their board so that you can have all of their latest pins available to you. While you’re checking it out, don’t forget to follow us!

Great Computer Desks, Cheap!

I was just browsing online and found a couple of compact computer desks for a great price. I found each of these desks for under $50. They would be a great addition for a small work space. I wanted to share these because I know how difficult it can be to find good computer desks for under $50. Here are the desks:

These desks are great for bedrooms, small home offices, youth bedrooms, or even as a supplemental work space in the kitchen. The compact computer desk would be excellent for use even for college students.

On top of the wonderful features that these desks have, since these desks have the option to be fulfilled via Amazon, and are more than $25, they currently qualify for free shipping and free delivery! It’s tough to find a better value than this. These desks have both been marked down, so act now to get these desks cheap while the deals still last!
