Need Inspiration?

It’s that time of year again when the jolly fat guy shimmies down the chimney and spreads Christmas cheer!
Christmas is a great time of year to take a break, relax, be inspired and dream of the possibilities for that renovation, extension or new home for 2019.
If your lucky enough to get some time free time between Christmas dinner and new year’s drinks, grab the iPad and visit these must-see websites for some awesome inspiration.

If you can think of any category, Pinterest most likely has it! Not 100% focused on architecture and design, however, Pinterest has millions of photos and ideas from designers in Australia and all over the world. Create an account and start pinning and build an online scrapbook of ideas and inspiration. You can even share your pins with a designer when you are ready to put pen to paper.


A little-known architectural website, mostly used by industry professionals, Arch Daily brings together inspirational designs from all over the world. If you really enjoy great architecture, this is the website is for you. You’ll spend hours searching through the endless resources available. This website is one of my personal favourites as it showcases the complete design of each home including floor plans. I highly recommend a visit to Arch Daily.
Don’t forget to visit Synergy’s design gallery, Facebook and Instagram feed for daily ideas and inspiration as well.
