The start of a new year is one of the best times to start thinking about an interior design refresh or redesign. If you’re like many people, you might not know where to start looking for ideas and interior design inspiration, or you might feel like there are too many places to look and end up getting overwhelmed.

To ease you into any design project, big or small, we’ve put together a list of our favorite sites for interior design inspiration. These sites have inspiration boards to help you narrow down the overall feeling or style you want to achieve, as well as specific furniture pieces to buy to add to your design.
