They say home is where the heart is and that must be the reason we put so much heart into decorating our homes. From the endless Pinterest postings, to watching DIY videos and failing to re-create the looks we’re going for, it seems like an endless battle to search for, let alone re-create, the looks we desire to have in our homes. To make things even more complicated, there are thousands of different looks for just about every room of a home, and the outdoor spaces too. We’re talking mid-century modern, coastal cool, bohemian chic, rustic farmhouse and the list goes on. Today, we’re trying to make your search for inspiration a little easier by compiling 25 of our favorite home décor blogs. From DIY projects, to room renos and deco hacks, these 25 talents will not disappoint when it comes to interior design. Enjoy!
Emily A. Clark and her blog, design. simplified. is just the inspiration you’ve been looking for if you are feeling overwhelmed by the seemingly daunting task of decorating your home. Her site is easy to navigate, very friendly and jam-packed with stylish, as well as affordable design ideas. Emily does not claim to have a huge DIY skill set nor the ability to use power tools, she’s just “a wife, a mom of five, and busy bee trying to decorate her home one crazy day at a time.” From painting rooms and even fireplaces, to adding shelving and putting her thrift store finds to use; Emily utilizes her own home décor projects to inspire others.
