Houzz may soon shed its common description as the "Pinterest for home decor." The Palo Alto-based startup is growing aggressively, and recent filings "indicate that it is raising a Series D round of $150 million, which would give the company valuation of just over $2.3 billion...," according to TechCrunch. Houzz doesn't comment on how they plan to spend the cash. But a safe bet is Houzz's marketplace, premium accounts, and more original content.
