Given that we’re in the business of home furnishings it wouldn’t be a complete surprise to find out that many of us are interested in the interior design sector too. From our combined years of working in this business, we are well aware that those involved in interior design tend to be very passionate about it and, thus, love talking about it.
So over the years the interior design blogging community has become absolutely massive. Thousands of blogs share their tips and loves with the Internet on a daily basis; whether it’s a stay-at-home mum who appreciates a well-designed room and loves to come up with DIY ideas or a professional interior designer who spends their spare time sharing their expertise with the rest of us.
The problem is that there are soooo many of these blogs, so where do you start? We’ve done the hard work and trawled through a countless number of blogs to come up with our list of the 100 best interior design blogs that you must read if you have any interest in interior design. It was hard to pick just 100 blogs, and, of course, there are plenty more out there that are brilliant too, but these are our favourites and our goal was to make a list that would cover all aspects of interior design. We welcome more suggestions too, so if you have a favourite blog then feel free to pop it in the comments section.
We also realise that nobody can keep up with every single blog on this list, but a good way to sort through the constant content is to add your favourites to a feed reader that will constantly update as new posts are published on these blogs. We recommend using Feedly. You can visit each of the featured blogs by clicking on the blog title above each blog logo. We’ve also included good places to begin on each blog at the bottom of every blog description.
Finally, we have also created a Twitter list that includes every blog on this list (providing they have a Twitter account). Subscribe to the list to see all their tweets.
So, here we go. It’s a long list so be sure to bookmark this if you don’t have time to read it all right now!
This is probably one of our most visited blogs on this list and you’ll see us sharing articles from the site regularly across our social media profiles. It simply has everything you’d ever want to know about homes and interior design, covering every single room in the house to give you design ideas, tips and tricks, and hefty tutorials. One of the best sections is the House Tours they do, which give you a peek inside the homes of people from all over the world.
If may technically be about apartments, but the ideas can be translated into any type of house. So if you only visit one blog on this list you should definitely make it this one.
Where to start? Since we’re largely a bathrooms blog we think that the bathroom category is a brilliant place to begin.
Some of the most interesting interior design blogs to follow are those that largely concentrate on renovating a single home. 702 Park Project began as a way to document the restoration of a 1902 American Foursquare in North Carolina. We’ve been following this one for a while now and it’s been fascinating the amount of care and attention that’s gone into making this a lovely home.
However, it now covers much more than just the author Sarah’s home. It also gives you general tips about the home, posts about Sarah’s life and an excellent section where she conducts interviews with various interior designers.
Where to start? Begin with a look at Sarah’s home in her ‘House Tour‘.
A Beautiful Mess is a blog from two sisters, Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman, which focuses on ‘creating happiness every day through a homemade lifestyle’.

It’s been going since 2007 so there’s plenty of content to get your teeth stuck into here, and with multiple updates per day you’ll never be at a loss for something to read.
Where to start? The ‘Home Décor’ section archives every post they’ve crafted about interiors.
Here’s our first British blog on this list and it’s probably one of the most influential interior design blogs in the UK. It was created by interior designer Abigail Ahern who uses the blog to showcase her eclectic taste in interiors that regularly set the trend across our islands and beyond. Even film star Gwyneth Paltrow is a keen promoter of her.
The main page is a smorgasbord of beautiful cover images for a huge variety of articles that you can easily spend an entire day getting lost in. Although we don’t think that would be a day wasted!
Where to start? The ‘House Crush’ section takes a look into the unique interiors of homes around the world.
If you’ve taken a look at our Pinterest boards then you’ll be well aware that we’re big advocates of getting your hands dirty and putting together some of your own DIY projects for use inside the home. Addicted 2 DIY has hundreds of projects that you can give a try, all of which will give your interiors a beautifully unique appearance.
From building your own towel racks, remodelling existing furniture and making over entire rooms – Katie at Addicted 2 DIY is absolutely brimming with new ideas for projects and subsequent blog posts. We just wish that we could be as creative as her!
Where to start? The ‘Printable Plans’ section lets you easily follow along if you want to build one of the featured projects.
Tasha at Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body wants to dispel the notion that people can be stereotyped based on what they do as a day job. Just because you spend a good chunk of the day doing something completely different, it doesn’t mean you can’t then go home and let your creative impulses fly. And let them fly she does!
There is a strong focus on sticking to a budget when doing DIY, which is something we can all agree on in this era of tightening the purse strings. Tasha has taken what was a very drab home and turned into something that looks like it could easily be at home in the pages of a glossy interiors magazine. She stresses that anyone can do it, even if you have busy lives with a family to look after and a budget to keep to. From the excellent results, it’s clear that she’s right!
Dwell Beautiful is a blog by Erica, who lives with her husband, two cats and a puppy whilst also nurturing an obsession with all things home and interior design. The tagline is ‘Beautiful Solutions For Everyday Living’ and just one look at the homepage shows that it more than lives up to that motto.
Erica documents her journey to updating her home (Sooter Cottage) and we’re jealous of each and every room. She also puts a strong focus on current trends and has plenty of craft ideas that will give your home that unique touch you’ve been craving. She also takes part in Link Parties (where blogs gather together brilliant posts from around the blogosphere every week), a list of which can be found here.

Sarah, who runs Little Red Brick House, is from Texas and spends her days homeschooling her children, but she’s also extremely creative and has a huge passion for anything DIY.

Your author, Carrie, wants to help you turn your home into a ‘haven for your family’ and each and every post will get you closer to doing just that. As well as DIY Décor there are tips on decorating, simplifying and repurposing things to ultimately give you a beautiful home.
Where to start? The ‘Simplifying’ section is great for helping you declutter and clean your home.
‘Aspiring to make homes beautiful one day at a time’. This motto really resonates with us as its spot on. When you’re renovating your home you just need to take it one day at a time. Trying to do everything at once is a recipe for disaster, so careful planning is required if you want to make the most of your time and really create a home you can be proud of.
Stacey at Addison Meadows Lane has plenty of ideas that you can tackle one day at a time. Her main focus is on DIY, upcycling and repurposing furniture with beautiful results. It’s fascinating to see the process she goes through when upgrading furniture.
Where to start? The ‘Before and After’ category shows you every step of the process of upgrading furniture and the beautiful results.
This wonderful blog documents the process of remodelling, decorating and the ‘inevitable redecorating’ of a house. As we write this article, Karisa at Petite Modern Life has just bought a new house. So we’re sure you can expect even more budget friendly tips from this DIY enthusiast.
While the blog is American so focuses a lot on American products and prices, you can still adopt many of the styles and tips featured here. The beauty of interior design is that ideas from all over the world can be used in your home, because it’s your unique space and you don’t have to settle for a trend that your country may currently be latched on to. So be sure to give Petite Modern Life a browse to add to your no doubt endless list of ideas.
Where to start? The website takes a look at both the old and new homes.

Where to start? The ‘DIY Project Gallery’ page features some fantastic ideas.
Houselogie takes us to the mountains of West Virginia to find out what sort of interiors are trendy with the residents there. This is another blog with some brilliant DIY ideas, and it seems like not a week goes by without another incredibly unique DIY project hitting the site, courtesy of Leigh Anne.
Leigh Anne says she’s a ‘terrible photographer’ on her ‘About’ page, but from the beautiful images of her projects that we keep coming back to see we’d have to disagree with her. We don’t think there’s one blog on this list that has terrible images – all of them are fantastic at snapping!
Where to start? Check the sidebar for Houselogie’s most popular DIY projects.
Next up it’s off to just outside Detroit, Michigan where two sisters lived together and decided to set up a blog to document their decorating adventures. Now Jodie, one of the sisters, has bought a home with her fiancé, Matt, and the blog has gone on to document the slow transformation of their 1979 colonial home.
There are loads of projects you can try at Sypsie Designs, from a Boxwood Flower Box to DIY Headboards. Jodie will also allow you into her home as it evolves into a beautiful place to live.
Where to start? The ‘Project Gallery’ has a great collection of Sypsie Designs original projects.
Diy Passion is another blog that comes from a couple simply trying to make a beautiful home to spend their lives in. It’s run by Erin and Dan, who bought a ‘diamond in the rough’ home near the Atlantic Ocean in the USA. Their positive approach to everything they do makes for a very enjoyable read as they take you through the slow transformation of their home.
Expect everything from craft posts to deep dives into the building process of various projects within their home. There are always some great guides on decluttering, cleaning and organising your home.
Where to start? Diy Passion has this covered with a ‘First Time? Start Here’ page.
We’ve pretty much been following Decor8 since the blog was first established in 2006. It was set up to document the interior design studio of the same name that’s run by Holly Becker. Since its humble beginnings it has become a hugely successful brand, with Holly able to make a living off the site (as well as her other work) and has led to the publication of a series of ‘Decorate’ books. In short, if you have any interest in interior design at all then you should definitely be reading this blog (and you probably already are!).
Decor8 covers every room in the home and has inspiration about just about any interior aspect that you can imagine. Each post is accompanied by absolutely gorgeous images that make Decor8 one of the best-looking blogs on this list.
Where to start? It was hard to choose a particular area, but the ‘Decorating Tips’ category is probably our favourite.
The minimalist design of Decorology echoes the minimalist interiors that are featured in many of this blog posts. We love browsing Decorology simply to stare at the interior images that are abundant in every post, and since it covers every room in the home you won’t be lost for inspiration.
Where to start? Here’s a round-up of content featured on Decorology in August 2015.
This beautiful blog really does soak up all the best interiors ideas out there – just like a sponge! It was launched in 2004 by Grace Bonney and has racked up an impressive 1 million readers a day. Such an audience requires content in abundance, so expect Design*Sponge to update multiple times a day with fantastic content.
What does that content cover? DIY, crafts, interiors, food and drink and even travel. There are also loads of ‘101’ DIY guides and fascinating columns about a variety of topics. There’s enough content here to keep you reading for years.
Where to start? This is another tough one as there’s so much good stuff available, but we suggest you begin with a look in the ‘Interiors’ section.
The cheerful design of Dwelling In Happiness makes us happy every time we load it up, and if we lived where author Amanda does then we’d be even happier! Amanda lives in Central Oregon and is surrounded by ‘snowy mountains, crystal blue lakes’ and sunshine all year-round. We’re incredibly jealous, and to top it off she has a gorgeous blog too!
Dwelling In Happiness covers the likes of DIY, interior decorating, organisational tips, free printables and a whole host of other content. Amanda seems like a very friendly woman and responds to all comments, so pop by and say hi!
Where to start? The ‘Project Gallery’ covers all of Amanda’s past projects and other posts.
Freshome doesn’t just cover interiors, it also delves into design and architecture. This means that amongst all the lovely photos of interiors that we can often only dream of attaining you’ll find photos of stunning buildings and homes from around the world. You may have to be rich to own a lot of the featured buildings, but admiring them is totally free!
Freshome is a site that’s pretty much an essential daily visit for anyone even remotely interested in interior design. Their list posts with titles like ’25 Basement Decorating Ideas’ are our favourite part of the site and we always come away with lots of inspiring ideas to try. Again, you can lose an entire day to this site if you’re not careful.
Where to start? This is another site where it’s hard to say, but we’ll go with the ‘Bathroom’ category.
If you thought that junk you were about to throw out couldn’t be used for something else then think again. Funky Junk Interiors is one of the leading voices in the repurposing movement – the act of taking an object and turning it into something useful. For example, old pallets can be transformed into brilliant pieces of furniture with a touch of DIY magic.
Donna, the owner of Funky Junk Interiors, practically started from nothing and furnished a home by using her salvaging skills and crafting new things from the ‘junk’ she found. Just take a look at a few of her projects and we think you’ll agree that she certainly knows her stuff and produces some excellent results.
Where to start? There’s a giant list of Donna’s projects here, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the wealth of content available on this blog.
The keyword with Habitually Chic is ‘glamour’. While the blog isn’t solely focused on interiors it does come from the mind of interior designer Heather Clawson. As such you can get a real taste for her approach to design through the things she loves in life.
Of note are the posts where Heather takes a look at interiors in a range of countries, such as a recent post (at the time of writing) about a mix of contemporary pieces in a Madrid home. She also tends to feature the work of other interior designers regularly.
Where to start? The ‘Interior Design’ tag is chock full of lovely photos.
While Graceful Order contains a good amount of decorating advice – with ideas for seasons and the different rooms in your home – its main focus is on looking after your home by keeping it in an orderly fashion. Maria, the author, says she lives a balanced life where she is “in charge of my home and not the other way around”. We couldn’t agree more Maria!
There’s plenty of advice for cleaning your home, decluttering and just generally keeping it organised even when busy life gets in the way.
Where to start? There’s a handful of good guides to keeping your bathroom clean.
The first thing we loved about this blog is its ‘About Me’ page. If anything shows the author’s personality it’s this brilliant page, which charts the life of author Lauren in the style of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song. Read it and we can pretty much guarantee that you’ll have the theme song stuck in your head for days!
Aside from Will Smith tributes, Bless’er House has a raft of DIY ideas that we’d jump at the chance to have in our homes. Lauren and her husband built the house they now live in so they started with a completely fresh slate. But no matter how old your home is you can easily have a go at these projects yourself and your home will look wonderful as a result.
Where to start? As with a lot of the blogs featured here the ‘Project Gallery’ is a great place to begin.
Virginia Sweet Pea combines delicious home recipes with a healthy dose of home DIY and upcycling projects – plus an incredibly handsome dog! Paula is also a keen exerciser, so you can expect plenty of advice for keeping fit in a domestic world.
This blog shows that improving your home is a constant journey and there’s always something you can work on to keep making it your own personal space. There are some great projects here that we haven’t seen anywhere else, especially when it comes to making over furniture.
Where to start? The ‘Home Projects’ page shows you a grouping of posts about Paula’s upgrades to her home, including a great series on ‘Main Bathroom Renovation’ and ‘Guest Bathroom Renovation’.
Mad About the House is penned by Kate Watson-Smyth, a journalist who mainly writes about interiors and design. As such she’s got a wealth of knowledge about what makes a spectacular interior and her posts frequently include the kind of beautiful images that you can’t help but stare longingly at. The weekly ’10 Beautiful Rooms’ post is our favourite due to the amazing images that Kate discovers.
Kate also offers a unique service called ‘Shop Your Pinterest Board’. You simply send Kate a Pinterest board that you’d like your home to look like and she will tell you where you can buy everything to create that look.
Where to start? ‘The Househunter’ takes a peek inside some spectacular homes from around the UK.
While Love Nordic isn’t just about interiors – it also covers design in general – a large portion of its content covers just that. Specifically this blog loves to collate interiors from the Nordic countries – hence its name!
The minimalist design of the blog allows you to cut through the clutter that can clog up websites and get you straight to the beautiful content. Images are large and bright and make you want to keep stopping to pin it to one of your Pinterest boards.
Where to start? Aside from the labels on each post there are no sections that are split-off. Instead just start on the main page and dive right in!
Little Green Notebook is the blog of Jenny Komenda, a design blogger and decorator from New York City. Her lovely little blog charts the progress that she and her husband, plus their three young daughters, make in renovating their brownstone home.
Aside from posts that show you the latest upgrade in her home, content also includes great ideas for upcycling old pieces of furniture, many of which are bought from flea markets. It’s proof that American interior designers have epic taste!
Where to start? Take a look at Jenny’s portfolio to see her amazing work.
Although Kristi and her family no longer live in the Kootenay mountains, they still have a lovely home surrounded by forest that Kristi is more than happy to welcome us into. They are now focused on renovating this new “fixer-upper” home and we get to follow along as it transforms into a beautiful family home.
Aside from home projects, Kristi also posts a lot of craft tutorials. For example, you can learn how to make an autumn wreath or milk bottle vases.
Where to start? Take a look at the old house tour to get a feel for why the blog began.
We head to New York City for our next featured blog, and it’s another blog with a brilliant ‘About Me’ page. Daniel Kanter started this blog when he was living in a college dorm room in Manhattan. Since then he’s moved from one apartment to another and adopted two dogs along the way. Finally, he bought a ‘fixer-upper’ in Kingston, which is where he resides now and the house his blog documents.
As you’ve probably guessed by the rest of this list – we really love blogs that chart a complete renovation from a home with out of date décor to a modern pad. There are plenty of lengthy posts that talk about each project in detail, and all of them are illustrated with beautiful photographs.
Where to start? If you’ve got time, start way back at the beginning with the Manhattan Apartment category.
If you like your interior design a little off the beaten track then Moon to Moon is the perfect blog for you. Authored by Gabi, it caters to those who have a taste for the ‘bohemian’ and is a brilliantly eclectic mix of some of the most wonderful interiors in the world.
With 6 years’ worth of content, there’s plenty to get stuck into!
Where to start? The bathrooms category – of course!
When you’re tackling ‘fixer upper’ houses you’re probably going to have a few disasters along the way. We’ve often had trouble just putting up some wallpaper! Two Bostonians don’t mind showing what’s gone wrong in their journeys to make beautiful homes, and it’s a pleasure to read about how they overcame each issue as it really encourages us in our own interior journeys
You get a two in one here, so you can peek inside both houses to see how progress is getting on. From the looks of things it seems like they’ve done a brilliant job, so if you’re wondering where to get the best advice then some advice from your average persons (who had no prior experience) who have tackled the job themselves is a great place to go.
Where to start? The ‘Projects’ page shows their favourite projects completed so far.
Cassity runs Remodelaholic and she has the kind of brilliant mind that somehow manages to come up with extremely creative projects on a consistent basis. Cassity’s way of keeping busy is to start even more projects, so you’ve got a healthy dose of content appearing on the blog all the time. There’s also projects created by other people too, so if you’ve got something you want to show off then we’re sure Cassity would love to see it!
According to Cassity it’s all about reusing, recycling, repurposing and remodelling things as much as you can, and it just goes to show that just because it’s old and doesn’t look like much it doesn’t mean that it can’t become something fantastic!
Where to start? Set aside a few hours to get lost in the ‘Our Projects’ page.
Billing itself as ‘the sourcebook for considered living’ Remodelista is full to the brim with fantastic content that you can spend entire days getting lost in. Like Apartment Therapy, the website features multiple sections that cover every room in the room. Delve into the ‘Bathrooms’ category to see such delights as baths in the bedroom and bathroom lighting tips.
As shown by all the blogs on this list, you can find inspiration pretty much anywhere! But Remodelista is one of those sites that just seems to be able to collect it all, so if you’re struggling for ideas then this should definitely be one of your first stops!
Where to start? The ‘Bathroom’ category is our favourite place to browse.
We love all things modern here at Plumbworld, but we also know that taking a look at how they did décor in the past can give you some great inspiration for your own space. Retro Renovation takes this to the extreme by showing you how you can convert your home into the style of a house that’s more suited to post-World War II America.
Vintage is the key word here, and we’ve got to admit that many of the finished makeovers look absolutely fantastic and give us a warm feeling inside. Plus, if you do decide to model one or more of your rooms on a Retro Renovation pick then you can say that your room is highly unique and shuns the often cold and clinical modern world.
Where to start? There’s a category especially for bathrooms.
Sawdust Girl is run by Sandra and takes us on a remodelling journey that’s rife with new ideas for us to try. Her home is a ‘work in progress’ so we can follow along to see Sandra’s skilled hands make a home we’re quite jealous of!
There are multiple projects here that you can try yourself, all of which are clearly explained with plenty of images so that just about anyone can have a go. Plus, there are plenty of free plans you can download that you can easily refer to whilst you work.
Where to start? The ‘Projects and Plans’ page has everything you need.
That’s My Letter is another imaginative DIY blog. It seems like all the best DIY blogs come from mums – and we think they’re definitely super mums! Jaime is definitely in that category, as anyone with three kids like her will know that finding the time to creative can be hard.
Jaime uses her creative time well, creating lovingly handmade crafts and renovating old pieces of furniture that we then get to see in all their glory. There are also some great tips for simply being a mum and finding fun things for the kids to do.
Where to start? The ‘Build’ category is where all the DIY projects call home.
Stacey runs the smartly designed The Design Sheppard and her self-appointed task is to round-up the very best of interior design. As a result, you get posts that highlight stylish new products in everything from bedroom furniture to dazzling lights. It’s a brilliant resource to find out what’s new in home products.
What makes it different from some other interior design blogs is that it’s giving workable ideas for real homes. Too often interior design blogs show us something that’s way out of the price range for the average person, but The Design Sheppard likes to show us things that we could definitely see sitting in our own homes. It also has some great tip articles to help you make the most of your home.
Where to start? There’s a bathroom category.
A UK-based blog, Design Hunter has won awards thanks to its consistent brilliant coverage of trends, stunning interiors, inspiration and more. The design of the blog is plain and simple, but that’s the best way in our opinion as your eye then focuses on the wonderful content and not any of the clutter that dominates a lot of websites.
The interiors section is obviously our focus here and it’s full of beautiful photographs of all sorts of interior trends. Although from looking at many of them it has a large focus on contemporary interiors, so expect to see some cutting-edge trends and designs – perfect if you’re looking for inspiration to bring your interiors into the ultra-modern space.
Where to start? The ‘Interiors’ section is your first stop, and thanks to a single image and title for each post, it’s extremely easy to navigate.
Little Miss Homes is crafted by the talented Laura, an interior designer and property developer from the old streets of London. Laura also has the unique experience of working for a property development business in the Balearic Island for four years, so she’s had first-hand experience of interior trends from outside the UK.
Her blog is a loving tribute to all the things that make interiors such a pleasure to look at. But a number of posts also showcase work done by Laura herself, which really show off her well-honed skills in creating interiors to die for.
Where to start? The ‘Interiors’ category is the best place to begin.

Homes & Hues comes from the same people who bring you the incredibly addictive collection of everything weird and wonderful, Neatorama. Its aim is to inspire you by featuring thousands of images that usually come in the form of ‘listicles’ (articles made up of lists).
So you’ll take a deep dive into ‘modern castles’ before relaxing into ‘romantic hotel bathtubs’. You’ll also find frequent ‘home hacks’ and featured products that are normally a little different to the kind of thing you see in your local home furnishings store.
Where to start? There’s a category especially for ‘Bathroom Design Ideas’.
My Friend’s House largely follows the process of redecorating a home. Follow along as this wonderful blog shows us the inspiring updates to the owner’s home which are cleverly titled ‘decorating dilemmas’ and ‘real reveals’. A ‘roving reporter’ section also takes a look at other homes and architecture around the world.
All we can say is that the owner has a beautiful home and that we’re very jealous!
Where to start? Start with the ‘decorating dilemmas’ section.

Will Taylor’s blog Bright.Bazaar has always been a favourite of ours. It’s always great to look at when we want a splash of colour in our lives as his bold blog design and consistent bright and colourful images always stand out beautifully on our screens. So it’s not wrong to say that Will has a bit of an obsession with colour, and due to that you can get some great advice for when you’re looking for the best colours to add to your room.
Our focus is the ‘Interiors’ section, but there are also sections for ‘Style’, ‘Travel’ and ‘Life’. So expect travel guides alongside posts on new collections.

At the bottom of each series of photographs, you also get handwritten and hand-drawn answers to questions posed by Todd. The world is an amazing place and these are the people that continually strive to make it even more amazing.
