People often ask Team Rue if we ever run out of inspiration. We’re glad to report a resounding NO! From the gorgeous homes we feature, to our never-ending Pinterest feed, to our surroundings in everyday life… we’re always finding something that gets the creative wheels turning. One of our go-tos has long been ELLE DECOR. That’s why we were pleased as punch when they created a Lookbook App for the iPad!
This app allows you to search through the ED archives, giving you hundreds of stunning images right at your fingertips. They have a really nice filter feature- meaning you can select “Modern Kitchens” or “Eclectic Bedrooms” and immediately see all images that fit that filter. Or, you can do a broader search- for example if you’re craving neon inspiration, use the word “neon” to see all images with that word in the description.
This is a very helpful tool if you’re looking to redecorate or even take on a remodel. You can save the images (creating your very own lookbook) and quickly view them later on. From a designer standpoint, it’s pretty brilliant. Create inspiration for your clients and be able to show them directly! Some of Rue’s favorite designers (Georgie Hambright & Jennifer Beek, Julie Rootes, Robin de Groot, and Vanessa Francis) told Rue why they love it- along with a screen shot taken while using the app. If you don’t have an iPad… don’t worry. You can also access the ELLE DECOR Lookbook on your web browser.
The designers said what they’re searching for on the app… now what about you? Tell Rue what you’d search for first in the comments below!
