Best Websites for Design Inspiration: Part II

Get Inspired to Decorate: Design Inspiration Gets Personal

In our last design inspiration post, we shared our go-to websites when you need color inspiration in your home – and our favorite websites offering design inspiration from print magazines.

Today, we’re focusing on our favorite “real life” decorating blogs – that’s right, real people sharing their experiences, ideas, and favorite products as they decorate their own homes! Each of these blogs offers favorite products and design inspiration – with fun doses of the everyday in between.

Young House Love features a witty, crafty couple in Richmond, VA sharing their adventures, misadventures, projects, and yes, cute baby pictures. A fabulous blog for inspiring room ideas, fun “makeovers” of spaces, contests and much more.

We discovered Relatively Unique after Wendy wrote this fabulous post about going “inspiration shopping” in our Veranda Parade Home this past summer. Share in the adventures as this family makes over a 1900’s farm house – from fun projects and yummy recipes to antique shopping and room makeovers.

Live the Home Life features thrifty finds, celebrity homes, furniture makeovers, and yes, even dog makeovers.  Don’t miss the “reader redo’s”, where readers submit before and after pictures of their own design projects!

The Newlywed Diaries features fun projects, photographs of homes and other inspiring images, and more cute animals. Jennifer (self-described as “a slightly design-obsessed Southerner navigating the waters of wife-dom and picking things out for the husband to install”) and Wes never fail to delight.
