Dream Home will provide you with the inspiration you need to turn your house into a home. The app features beautiful high definition photos of house interiors. Content is laid out in an easy-to-navigate format. The top menu lets you filter images by color, style, most recent, popular and favorite categories. The secondary menu helps you narrow down your selection to photos taken in the bedroom, kitchen, lounge room, and other areas of the house or lets you select from modern, contemporary and traditional design ideas.
Popular design, culture and technology publication Cool Hunting has created an iPad app to highlight their content. The articles, videos and photos have been optimized for the device, making flipping through this digital magazine a pleasure. The application is free - thanks to Cool Hunting's iPad app sponsor Cadillac - and is updated with new content every day.
The Home Interior app will help you get into the mood for a complete home makeover. The app provides inspiration for people looking to renovate or build their own house. The app is divided into six main categories: living room, bedroom, bathroom, house pool & Jacuzzi, and Japanese home interior. Users can bookmark the images they like while listening to the included music (or their own songs) in the background. Content is slightly more limited than some of the other interior design apps.
