I’ll be honest, I haven’t been feeling super inspired these days. I think it’s probably because vacation mode is really hard to get out of…
So when I get like this, I then spend A LOT of time browsing my all-time favorite design and decorating industry guru’s websites for some good ol’ inspiration. While some of them are bloggers turned business women, the others are just amazing interior design and decorating websites with LOTS of house tours – my fave. And even if I can’t get around to doing some of the projects, these creative minds help me find great ideas for custom pieces or find things to look for when shopping, consider color schemes I never looked at, and organize my spaces just a tad bit better.
I’m sure some of you also feel a little like this at the moment – fresh off of a nice long winter break – so I thought I’d start off the year by helping to inspire you and show you some of the bloggers that I turn to when I’m feeling totally out of it.
Website: Apartment Therapy
This is definitely one of my favorite websites of all time. You can find anything on here, from decorating styles, to organizing, to DIY, to literally… anything… I’ve been following Apartment Therapy for years!
Arianna Belle: The Blog
Website: Arianna Belle
This website is just full of super chic, stylish and organized spaces! I always want to buy all the things that she features, even though I have absolutely no need for them, including these stylish planners featured on the home page…
A Beautiful Mess
Website: A Beautiful Mess
There are so many wonderful resources on this site! You can find décor, food, craft and even photography tips here. I even talked about one of their amazingly simple and effective ideas – painting concrete – for my Glam Up Your Yard post.
Website: Design Sponge
I love Design Sponge. There are always so many beautiful home tours on this site! Even the @designsponge Instagram feed is so inspiring!
This site has a lot of the things that most good design blogs have, but she also features things like molding projects, a paint archive, and even cute and budget friendly party ideas! Sooo many amazing options 🙂
Website: IHeart Organizing
Not only are all of the ideas on this site just gorgeous, they make even organizing look pretty! I’m always so inspired by how beautifully everything is arranged, and they include great tips as well as free printables to organize your life 🙂
In My Own Style
Website: In My Own Style
Diane from In My Own Style has some of the cutest and most budget-friendly ideas out there! I featured her Outdoor Tuna Can Lantern in my Glam Up Your Yard post as well. I think this is the year that I’ll finally get around to actually trying that project out too 😉
Magnolia Market Blog
Website: Magnolia Market Blog
I am obsessed with Joanna Gaines. I’m also obsessed with her show Fixer Upper, AND her Magnolia Market Blog! She has the most amazing sense of style, and I love that she covers all of her ideas in this blog. You have to check it out for some beautiful rustic charm!
These girls are amazing, and I’m pretty sure they have an HGTV show now too. I wouldn’t know though since sadly, I don’t get HGTV in Saudi…… Anyways, if I could decorate my home with Shanty2Chic DIY projects, I probably would. Lucky for my husband, I have very little desire to make these projects, but I am definitely planning on paying someone to make them for me 😉 Check out their really cute DIY Coffee Mug Display board that I featured on my Get Inspired post.
Style Me Pretty Living
Website: Style Me Pretty Living
If someone is getting married in your family, you have to send them to the Style Me Pretty wedding blog. My original obsession for this site started with their wedding blog, but their home and decorating posts combined with gorgeous home tours make this the most amazing resource for everything pretty. I love that they cover different aspects of design as well as feature how people have decorated different rooms in their homes, including nurseries! I spend an unhealthy amount of time browsing this site…
Well I feel slightly inspired now, so I hope you do too!
Happy Monday 🙂
