Dream Home HD is a gorgeous app that showcases various styles in the interior design space through beautiful high-res photos. From ultra-modern industrial chic designs to more traditional and contemporary styles, the app offers a wide variety of ideas to inspire.
The living spaces are divided into categories, enabling users to quickly browse pics by both room and by colour. Commonly, with a lot of the interior design apps we’ve seen in the past, the galleries are limited to the living room, bathroom and kitchen however, this app has included a few extras; decor ideas, kids room, floor plans, hallway and wardrobe. Garden landscape, architecture and pool & jacuzzi are the outdoor design categories.
Each one of the galleries can be activated to slideshow mode which uses your iPad’s music library as background music. It’s not exactly a necessary feature but they get an A for effort on that one.
The two coolest sets of galleries by far are found within the colour category. In the colour screen, users can browse through the images by colour schemes, an option that can save you from wasting time by streamlining the process. Users can additionally choose to be inspired by style, a screen that separates images by traditional, modern and contemporary designs.
Dream Home HD isn’t just filled with images, it also holds a handful of articles on the latest interior design trends and the articles can be directly shared on Facebook and Twitter. It is however somewhat bothersome that it doesn’t offer users a sharing feature within the image galleries, we suppose one could easily just take a screenshot and send but it’s inconvenient.
Overall, based on its design and user-interface alone, this app is a major win. As far as content goes, there’s a great deal of high quality images capable of giving users a design-epiphany, although everyone has different tastes so you may want to hold back until you check a few screenshots. DreamHome HD is available in the app store for $1.99
