One of the funnest and simultaneously draining tasks we can do is to redecorate our home.
We love the idea of coming home to a place that has a completely different look and feel to the one we were accustomed to, but coming up with the right kind of look and feel can be quite the worry. Luckily for those who aren’t professional designers there are a ton of great websites that are willing to give us a taste of what we want.
Here are the best of the best, the top ten home decor blogs.
10. The Design Files
The Design Files will lead you through a ton of some of Australia’s greatest homes. This blog specializes in eclectic looks and they even have a “sustainable” section that shows how to decorate with previously discarded materials.
Compai is a blog run by Justina Blakeney, this designer has created her own style she has dubbed “Jungalow.” Plants and jungle themes play a big role in making a sort of upscale jungle feel. This blog doesn’t stop at home decor as they also offer clothes and jewelry to blend in with your home.
8. Bright Bazaar
Bright Bazaar has the motto “because beige is boring.” Bright colors that don’t clash is the key to this top home decor blog.
Freshome doesn’t have one go-to look or feel but it just brings a ton of great looks that someone could try and copy. Whether showing off one room, or a particular piece of furniture, the blog has some top of the line looks.
6. Better Living Through Design
Better Living Through Design deals less with whole house or room decor and more with unique pieces of furniture or high tech accessories such as iPad cases that blend into an entire decor look or feel.
Remodelista will definitely come in handy if you are looking to remodel a room such as the kitchen. Lots of different looks will draw readers with several different preferences.
As the name of this blog indicates, Contemporist is geared more towards a contemporary look to the home or office. The site shows off entire rooms or simple pieces that will help you get the look you want.
3. Ivy and Piper
I’m not real sure what it is about Australians but they have two different blogs making this list. Ivy and Piper deals with pastel colors as well as decorations for cottage style homes. A lot of their decor can also come off looking retro-chique.
2. Grassroots Modern
Grassroots Modern is a great blog because it shows you how to make your home beautiful, even if you are on a budget. Whether dealing with a closet or a main dining room, the blog offers up a ton of great ideas without busting the bank.
1. Design Sponge
Design Sponge is the top home decor blog on the web because of all it has to offer. The blog will show you how to incorporate some of today’s most popular trends such as glass lamps into your home, and it will show how to create your own trendy style.
