Where to find inspiration

by Housesimple on 4th October 2016

Trying to find home décor ideas can be a challenging business. Between magazines listing their latest luxury products and interior bloggers suggesting convoluted DIY tips, useful advice can be hard to come by.

To help you on your way to a brand new home, here’s a selection of the best interior inspiration from around the web.

UK home bloggers

Well I Guess This Is Growing Up chronicles a young Manchester family trying to do up their first house. There’s a mix of inspirational photos and progress on their own projects, as well as tips on how to decorate on a budget.

Love Chic Living is run by a professional interiors writer, which explains why her blog is impeccable. She posts everything from DIY tips to jaw-dropping design inspiration from overseas.

Bright Bazaar is a beacon of joy: a blog dedicated to using colour to bring your home to life. It’s fresh, contemporary and a touch bohemian, which makes it a joy to scroll through.

Pinterest boards

Apartment Therapy runs a successful blog, but the Pinterest board distils its essence into easily digestible bites. We especially love the bedroom board; scroll through it and dream about your perfect place to slumber.

Rachel Follett’s Top Interior Pins board is just that: a dreamy collection of beautiful interior design. It’s some of the best home décor to follow on Pinterest as it covers just about every possible style.

For something a little different, Outdoor Living by Sandra Powell is guaranteed to give you a yearning for a porch. She'll inspire you to make the most of your outdoor space, whether it’s elegant or rustic.

High street stores

It might be obvious, but IKEA can be a great place to find inspiration. The blogs contain helpful hints, while the shops have lovingly curated versions of rooms to inspire you.

Flying Tiger is a gorgeous homeware brand from Copenhagen, full of charm and joy. They have stores all over the country, making it easy to pick up cheap home accessories.

If you want to keep things sleek, Zara has minimalist, stylish homeware in its collection. The website is full of tasteful décor ideas and a store can be found on most high streets.

Whether you’re doing up your house to sell or trying to get settled in your new digs, getting home inspiration can be a snap if you know where to look. Once you're set to move, it makes sense to market your property with HouseSimple.com – we make selling easy.
