Home and Design's New Publication Web Design Offers Home Owners New Design Inspiration

July 27, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Washington, DC July 27, 2007 — Home and Design Magazine, a leading interior design and interior decorating publication in the Washington, DC-metro region, teamed with Blue Water Media, a leading provider of publication web design solutions, to bring visitors to Home and Design's website (http://www.homeanddesign.com) an improved user experience through additional functions available today. Blue Water Media (http://www.bluewatermedia.com) is excited to offer its publication web design services to Home and Design Magazine, a long-time client, and see its own creative talents benefit another creative company.

While interior design and interior decorating is useful for home owners, there are plenty of Home and Design subscribers and readers who are not home owners. Therefore, one of the new functions added by Blue Water Media's web development team was a home locator. This function allows visitors to search for housing developments in DC, Maryland, Maryland's eastern shore, and Virginia, and make more specific searches from there, including county, city, a specific housing development, a specific housing developer, and finally a specific home style. The easy-to-use results state location, development, developer, price, and home style. Upon clicking on one of the results, the visitor can obtain the developer's contact information and a sample photo.

Another function that has been added to the site is an "Idea Center," a destination on the Web to inspire visitors with new ideas and interactivity with an "Ask the Expert" section. Visitors can peruse a collection of Home and Design's best articles, view room-by-room examples, complete with credits, and project tools. But the function visitors may enjoy the most is the "Ask the Expert," where visitors can ask a leading designer questions and find answers posted by this designer.
