I’m a ripper.

For decades, I’ve filled notebooks and file folders with pages ripped from magazines: decorating ideas, recipes, dream houses, things I think I might buy (but usually never do). Now I’ve become an online ripper. My two new favorite iPad apps, Dream Home HD and Houzz, are digital idea books that I can take with me and look at anywhere.

On Dream Home HD, I can read about design trends, search through photos of thousands of rooms and read tips and suggestions on renovating and remodeling. Houzz lets me share ideas with more than 130,000 other users. Both apps satisfy my voyeurism for beautiful houses and feed visions of my dream house—that someday place that it’s just as much to think about as it might be to build.
