When we’re not busy working away on this site dear readers, we love nothing better than to curl up with a cup of tea and trawl our other favourite design blogs. And today we’re feeling rather generous so we’ve decided to share them with you!
Style by Emily Henderson
Out of LA, Emily Henderson is a stylist, author and TV host and her blog celebrates eclectic style on a moderate budget. Featuring magazine-worthy past projects and Emily’s own home renovations, plus ‘find your style’ quizzes and a ‘design mistakes’ section too, this blog is definitely worth visiting.
Launched in 2001, Apartment Therapy is the creation of Brooklyn-based Maxwell Ryan. With a background in interior design, Maxwell’s point of difference is his ability to make a space not only beautiful but organised too. Neat freaks (ahem, that’s both of us!) will love that there is an entire section dedicated to decluttering and cleaning while the blog’s storage tips, DIY projects and home tours are great too (the nursery tours are particularly good). Maxwell has lots of practical advice and you can also search the interiors by colour too!
As the name would suggest, colour is the hero on this hugely popular blog that features a plethora of cheery content across home, travel and fashion. Started by Brit Will Taylor, a US-based freelance author, creative consultant and lifestyle blogger, Bright Bazaar’s Pinterest feed is also a huge success, boasting a whopping 2.4 million followers!
A maximalist’s dream, LA-based interior designer and artist Justina Blakeney’s blog The Jungalow is a haven for lovers of bohemia. From DIY projects to travel and how-to’s (how-to use pattern and colour is a recurring theme), this blog really does pack an inspirational punch. Oh and we mustn’t forget the plants – Justina’s aesthetic is jam-packed with lush flora!
Out of the UK, interior designer Abigail Ahern is something of a design wunderkind boasting a London store (regarded as one of the UK’s top design boutiques), a number of published books, retail lines and and a very successful lifestyle blog too. Featuring the designer’s famous faux flowers, signature dark paint range and carefully curated style, this blog is a moody, visual feast.
Oh Happy Day
More of a party inspiration blog, this site is the work of San Francisco based party and lifestyle blogger Jordan Ferney. As its name would suggest, Oh Happy Day is bright and fun and it’s packed with interior design inspiration, recipes, DIY party projects and free (party) printables too.
The Domino blog is an extension of the hugely popular Domino magazine that is much-loved by interior design enthusiasts worldwide. Featuring recipes, home tours and plenty of décor inspiration, this American blog is your one-stop interiors resource plus it has an extensive e-tail offering too.
Featuring plenty of pink and a very photogenic Burmese cat, Zilverblauw is a Dutch blog that covers interior design, photography and everyday life. Much of the content features pictures of the the author’s highly original and super bright home. It’s always a treat.
