10 Interior Design Resources For Inspiration

Posted by jane gray on

Do you tend to spend ages looking for interior design resources online when searching for a little inspiration? There's a bit of a mix here - websites, blogs and Instagram accounts - hopefully there's something for everyone's budget and taste!

Websites

home-designing.com

I love this site and might have spent a little too long on it whilst trying to write this post....whoops!  It's pretty comprehensive and a little bit different to a lot of the 'home' websites out there.  It is pretty intuitive to use and in the form of a series of blog-style posts that are well constructed, there are ideas and examples of pretty much every room plus some random stuff like gadget lists and smart home product ideas.

redonline.co.uk/interiors

The interiors section on the website of this popular magazine is always packed full of useful info for your home and garden, best of all a lot of their posts are targetted towards the more affordable end of the market!  What's not to love?!

homestyler.com

This one is a little less inspirational and more practical - essentially it is free software for designing/redesigning or just playing around with room layouts for your home.  You can use their templates or create your own - fab if you even want to change a room layout, just put your furniture in and you will see how it could look without moving a muscle!

There are some cool features such as live 3D visualisation and furniture to get you inspired when designing your space.

Blogs

Fresh Design Blog

A pretty comprehensive UK-based blog that has been running since 2009 so has a massive amount of content.  It's really well laid out and broken down by categories so it won't take you long to find what you are looking for - you can also search by month if you are looking at trends and don't want to trawl through a particular category.  It's packed full of tips, inspiration and trends and has a clean and fresh layout.

Sophie Robinson

If you like your colour, patterns, oh and cushions, you will love this blog!  Sophie is a well known interior designer who has recently been a judge on BBC2's The Great Interior Design Challenge as well as working on a number of other TV shows and other media streams.  This blog is broken down into rooms where you will find inspiration for a multitude of colour combinations and styles.  If you want to delve a little deeper into colour she also runs a number of courses - details are on her site.

Abigail Ahern

This blog has an opulent feel about it and beautifully styled.  As well as design inspiration you will find a myriad of blog posts ranging from travel to garden tips, food and even a book club! For those of you who run your own business, the Biz Column is worth a read - there's a post called How To Recover From Failure....something we can all identify with I'm sure!

Love Chic Living

This multi award-winning blog written by Jen Stanbrook is really easy to negotiate and written in an easy to understand way.  There are the usual product reviews you would expect from a more popular blog as well as some guest bloggers too. 

Instagram accounts
