We love a bit of online inspiration to get the creative juices flowing when we feel like a room could use a shake-up, so we thought we’d share some of our favourites. We hope these Aussie interior design blogs will inspire you too!
The Design Files
Started by Melbourne stylist and set dresser Lucy Feagins in 2008, The Design Files covers Australian design in all its forms – from architecture and interiors to gardens, food, fine art and craft.
Interiors Addict founder and editor Jen Bishop doesn’t have any design qualifications – she’s just a regular old design addict like the rest of us! This has made the blog accessible and full of value for beginners and experienced interior addicts alike. It’s full of gorgeous images, videos, news, expert tips, and designer interviews.
The Happy Home Blog
Definitely one to follow if you love a good DIY project.The Happy Home Blog covers interiors, renovating, decorating and craft from a family perspective. We like that it’s not a perfectionist space – Belinda celebrates interesting little imperfections that give things character.
Ish and Chi
Vivian Panagos started Ish and Chi as a way to document the renovations of her new home and decorating her son’s room. Now it features tours, interviews with creatives, decorating and style ideas and the constant evolution of Viv’s unbearably chic home.
Get In My Home
Emily Osmond launched Get In My Home in 2012 as an inspiration site, and it’s stayed that way. It’s got a product focus, so it’s perfect for keeping up to date on the latest homewares and furniture lines, most frequently from small Australian businesses. Another running theme is colour – if you like your home with splashes of juicy colour this is the place for you!
Katrina Chambers Life & Design
Former contestant on The Block and licensed real estate agent Katrina Chambers’ blog shows off her passions for property and DIY. She regularly looks at homes that are on the market around Australia and creative floor plans, as well as offering DIY tutorials, highlighting her favourite designers and product lines.
Yugoslavian-born Sydneysider Dana Tomić Hughes created Yellowtrace as a design inspiration and resource for other interior designers and likeminded creatives. It’s updated frequently with well-written articles about interior design, art, architecture, photography and lifestyle.
