Inspiration Week: 10 Blogs to Follow

I’m taking it easy with blogging this week as I have family in town visiting!  I’ll be working on lots of projects, and instagramming still, if you want to follow along with me there.

In the meantime, I wanted to leave you with some of my favorite blogs at the moment…a little inspiration while I’m away.

First up, the lovely Erin from Francois et Moi writes the loveliest blog and shares the coolest, simple DIY projects.  Her photography and aesthetic are light and simple and I am always inspired by what she does.  Head over to check her out.

Next is the talented Kate from Kate’s Creative Space.  She shares the most whimsical projects, many geared toward children. And, she shares life as she renovates her older home.  I am constantly inspired by her out-of-the-box thinking and I think you will be too!

Jeran from Oleander and Palm is one of those people I’ve been following for years because she is consistently inspiring.  I love her California aesthetic and she is really on fire right now…she just moved into her own studio and is crafting projects with so much energy that are inspiring and totally do-able.

Heather, from The Decor Fix, is like the sage of interior design.  She shares real-life decorating advice, including a recent fantastic article on getting inspired by NOT decorating your house, and just did a few articles on overcoming Pinterest Paralysis…if you’ve ever felt stunted in your own decorating after trying to find inspiration on Pinterest, this article is for you!

When NOT to Decorate Your Home

Cassie, from Primitive and Proper, is a new blog discovery.  She runs a vintage furniture shop and shares fun finds, furniture rehabs and lovely pictures of her own home. Always an inspiring place to stop!

If you like a little Scandinavian design in your mix, check out Anu from Nalle’s House. clean, but bright, aesthetic always inspires me. And, she shares great DIY projects and pictures of her home renovations. Love her!

Sugar and Cloth is another new-to-me blog. And, I am totally addicted.  Ashley, the genius behind this blog, has been sharing the coolest plant stand DIY’s lately…just in time for outdoor living this spring.

Chris & Julia, the husband and wife duo behind, Chris Loves Julia, are constantly tackling the coolest projects in their home with the most sophisticated results.  They share their projects in real time… which makes them feel even more inspiring and attainable.  Plus, they are just such likeable people that you will want to check in with them daily!


Next up, Katie from Katie Gavigan Interiors.  I love this girl!  We share a similar aesthetic so I am always heading to her blog to see what she’s up to.  Currently she is re-doing her patio for summer and I can’t wait to see the results!


The eclectic style of the girls behind Red House West is always inspiring.  They share their design process along the way as they tackle projects in both of their homes.  I love stopping in to see snippets of their electically-styled homes.

And, last but not least, Cate & Chelsea’s blog StyleMutt is another new find.  I love discovering bloggers that live near me and this duo is based out of the Washington DC area, just like me!  These girls are constantly sharing furniture re-dos and other DIY projects and if you love vintage style this is the blog for you!
