Feel Inspired with 10 of the best Australian Interior Designer Blogs as chosen by our bean bag designer.
Today, we have picked out what we think are the 10 best Australian Interior Designer blogs for you.
A lot of the time, when you start an interior design project, you don’t know what you’re looking for until you find it – or, that is, you don’t know what your style of interior design is, so you don’t know what you’re going to like in your home.
Here are the top 10 to motivate you – now don’t forget to check them out (we have links to each)
The Interiors Addict – Jen Bishop
The Interiors Addict is full of blogs containing all the information you ever wanted to know.
Are there any questions that you ever wanted to ask a stylist, like how to choose paint colours for your renovation, what type of artwork or sofas to select, or the best ways to layout your furniture?
Have you ever wondered if there are any apps in this new world of technology that can help you with interior design, such as those that might help you with matching colour palettes or building 3D models of your home, allowing you to test ideas and see exactly what they will look like before you begin with a design?
The Interiors Addict has all these answers and more, written in an entertaining way by a knowledgeable Australian interior designer Jen Bishop.
House Nerd – Maya Anderson
The journalist turned blogger of House Nerd, Maya Anderson, claims to be obsessed with houses for as long as she can be remember, and definitely more than a little on the nerdy side too.
If this sounds like you, if you’re someone who can sit down and chat about every single detail of a house for hours, you’re going to love these blogs.
Living in what she calls a “1970’s fixer-upper”, the house that her and her husband are constantly renovating, these blogs are full of information on DIY projects – and trust me when I say, Maya does write about every single little detail, from budgeting, to wall trimming, and even hand-sawing.
Along with some fabulous photographs to match, if you’re stuck on a DIY project, visit the House Nerd today and you’ll get all the inspiration you need – and more.
TLC Interiors – Chris Carroll
