Color. Pattern. Texture. Balance. Good design. I think that home decor and scrapbooking have a lot more in common than you might think. My favorite layouts have kraft cardstock and a few key embellishments. At home I like a neutral base with well-placed pops of color. I don't like my pages or my home to be visually overloaded.
As a young girl, I loved to rearrange my bedroom and was always wishing for a new comforter set and paint color. These days, we're renters who are pinching pennies for our dream home. So I get my design fix from this list of blogs that I love love love. My favorite home bloggers are real people, featuring their own homes, diy-ing and solving real-life design dilemmas.
russet street reno
Sara from Russet Street Reno is easily one of my favorite bloggers. She blogs from south-eastern Wisconsin. Gotta love a local girl! She's an honest and hilarious DIY-er, fixing up a two-story home with her soon-to-be hubby.
When I picture the decor in our dream home, Dana's house at House Tweaking immediately comes to mind. Dana's family just put their house on the market to down-size into a home they can pay off quickly, so Dana can pursue her design dreams. I'm cheering her on!
Nesting Place is my favorite place to go for DIY projects, like her fur ottoman, tree tump side tables, and wall of plates. Love her thoughts on imperfection, living in a rented home, and thrifting.
young house love
John and Sherry of Young House Love are immensely popular, and for good reason. They're remodeling and redecorating their second home, keeping it fun, affordable, and inspirational along the way.
I'm seriously hooked on these home design blogs. It's fun to be invited into their homes to see how they decorate and make each space their own. What about you? Do you find inspiration in home design?
