There isn’t much of a point to show inspiration images without links to the products they contain.

 

+ buttons or a text link

Add ‘+’ buttons on inspirational product images which open an overlay dialog with more details on the product selected.

If the image only showcases one product, a text link underneath it is sufficient.

IKEA

IKEA (see the example below) has a section on their homepage with inspiration images. They don’t list the products in the inspiration images at all. They just show 3 photos. The good thing however is that they are clickable and it leads to a page for each, with an explanation of the design.

However, the products contained are not presented. They should add a section in that page, with the inspiration image with pins to access the product pages.
