Are you looking for . . . ?

Are you plotting a novel? Trying to figure out a character? How he looks? How she dresses? Imagining a room? Here are some key linkables for building your world from the ground up. 

1. Clothing: The Sartorialist. Photographs of fabulously-dressed people from around the world.  From suits to grunge, from all-black to summer whites. Every day is an inspiration. 

2. Interiors: Design Sponge.

3. All things chic and fabulous:  This is Glamorous & Dress, Design & Decor.

4. Maps: It's not new, but I don't think you can beat Google Street View to get a sense of place. 

5. Architecture: A Daily Dose of Architecture. (Enough said there, I think.)

6. Food: Serious Eats.

7. Character motivations? Postsecret.

8. Hobbies: Make & Craft

9. Art: Eye Level

Good luck!
