My Favourite Home Blogs-Home Improvement Thursday

My Favourite Home Blogs-Home Improvement Thursday

Blogging is something that becomes part of who you are, I’ve found that renovating and decorating is the same. I am on a constant quest to find a better way to do things with my home and to help my clients, and this has lead to many, many hours of reading blogs from all over the world.

Today I would like to share my 5 favourite home blogs, in the hope that you will find them as inspirational as I do.

DIY Decorator


I was fortunate enough to meet one part of the DIY-Decorator team a few years back at an Instagram meet up. Kylie is an interior designer, who shares her love for beautifully styled homes with Sam. Together Sam and Kylie’s blog is a place for decorating how to’s, DIY and craft projects and a directory for wonderful homewares.

Sunny Side Up Blog


This American blog is the first ever home blog I followed. I LOVE everything about Erin’s sense of style. Her home is simply stunning. Though American, many products similar to what Erin uses can be sourced locally. If you haven’t stumbled across Erin’s blog yet, you really need to get yourself equanted with it.

Gallerie B


Another home grown goodie, Belinda from Gallerie B is in the midst of building her new home. Belinda describes herself as a homewares and interior decorating junkie, and I can tell you she has great style! After spending two years in the US as a teen, you can see a strong influence of their homes in what Belinda has to share.

Interiors Addict & Reno Addict


Jen Bishop is the guru in home blogging for me. If you have a home based question, looking for inspiration, a demonstration or how to guide, then this is the place to find the answer. Rencently Jen and her team have introduced their second offering, Reno Addict which of course is one of my very favourite places to visit. With real life renovation stories and professional advice, together these blogs will have you inspired and renovating in no time at all.

Young House Love


Only a recent find, this blog was introduced to me via Nikki of nooks and cranny fame. I can tell you The Builder is not happy about this introduction, I’ve not been off their site since finding it. What this American husband and wife duo have done is nothing short of amazing. So far chronically 7 years of their lives together with 3 home renovations and two children, a real source of inspiration for what can be done. You really need to check this one out!

At last weeks #HIT link up Nikki from nooks and cranny shared with us How to Make A DIY Bamboo Veggie Trellis


It may even feature in my own veggie garden soon.

Charlene from Teacher by Trade Mother by Nature gave us a guest post with many tips for Decorating and Organising a Little Boy’s Room.


And Aaron from Mayfair Plumbing and Gasfitting educated us all about Vermiculite Ceilings.
