Use creative social networking sites to collect ideas and inspiration for building design and marketing from the generation who are next to join the property ladder.

By using these sites myself, patricularly Tumblr, i have noticed a desire for the amalgamation of eco-friendly, re-used and aesthetically pleasing design.
