Where Ideas for your Home Meet Inspiration for your Heart
Sharing HomeTalk and some exciting news!
We mentioned this great website at Inspiration Friday this past week, but wanted to share some more details with you!
HomeTalk.com is an amazing resource for homeowners, renters and anyone interested in making a “house a home”. At HomeTalkyou can find everything from inspiring projects shared by other members, answers to questions(and you can ask your own), professionals in your community(who are active members of HomeTalk) and keep track of ideas you find for future projects for our own home!
What we love most about HomeTalkis the sense of community. People are quick to answer questions another member might have. Everything from “do you recognize this plant?” To, “can you give me some lighting ideas for my cottage?”
It’s also a great way for BLOGGERS to share their amazing talent!HomeTalk appreciates the contribution from the blogging community and will often feature their projects on the HomeTalk Facebook page, which has over 380,000 followers!
Talk about a great way to get your talent noticed!
But, even if you aren’t a blogger you can still create an account at HomeTalk and upload your photos and a description of your project for others to see. What a great way to get affirmation and feedback on your hard work!
The HomeTalk community is very active in commenting and conversing. Take for instance Vanessa’s “If You Don’t Have a White Kitchen” post.
As you can see not only has she received tons of page views but it has also generated a very lively discussion on white kitchens!
and has not only received lots of views, but was also featured on the Facebook Page…yeah Shirley!
HomeTalk also stays connected with their community through the HomeTalk Twitter Page as well as through the HomeTalk Pinterest Boards!
In fact, we’d love you to follow the DIY that Inspires Board where you’ll find our pins of stand-out, trending projects from the HomeTalk website!
Which leads us to our exciting news!

Pam - @diy Design Fanatic says
I love Hometalk and have posted a few project on my page there. The one problem I’ve had in the past is that my photos won’t load since they are 12-18 megapixel and are probably too large. Hometalk is definitely a great site though!
Top four reasons I like Hometalk:
(1) They have amazing inspiration (like Shirley’s porch that she just posted, too)!
(2) I have an old house with old house questions. And I need answers.
(3) It’a a great place to find out if I should paint my couch with chalk paint….LOL 🙂
(4) I get to hang out with you girls over there 🙂
Thanks rock stars for all the inspiration!

Great post, ladies! Fun comment, Kari!
Thanks so much for sharing this…looks like a great site! I’m heading over to sign up!
Loved your post, Heather and Vanessa!! Pam, I hate that we’re missing out on any of your projects 🙂 Right now, photos can be up to 10 mb, and as of tomorrow that will change to 20, so you shouldn’t have any issues. 🙂 Please email me if you do.

Awwww – only for the U.S????
At The Picket Fence says
Hi Suzy! Was it because you have to enter a zip code when you sign up? I will see if this prevents a non US resident to enroll for some reason.
