This approachable decorating blog, run by probably the most stylish mum of five around, Emily A. Clark, is full of the type of inspiration that actually feels actionable. It makes sense: Clark started the blog when she was deep in the redesign process of her own family home.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Simple design ideas, affordable projects, and personal posts.
Toronto-based interior designer Jacquelyn Clark’s blog, Lark & Linen, is like a comforting snuggle in ultra-cosy down bedding. Its aesthetic and tone is reliably soft, peaceful, and pretty.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Home tours, snaps from Clark’s everyday life, recipes, DIY projects, and more.
Written by Montreal-based Gabrielle Savoie, Savvy Home is a destination for interior inspiration and shopping influenced by what the classicist terms “a love for the coastal lifestyle, mixed with the tradition and comfort of American design.”
WHAT TO EXPECT: Home tours, shopping roundups, how-tos and “get the look” features.
The blog of interior designer Amber Lewis takes you inside the creative workings of her Los Angeles-based studio. It reflects an insider’s point of view and the overall style is eclectically modern (hello, textile heaven).
WHAT TO EXPECT: Before and after stories, on-the-ground trend scouting, designer and artist spotlights.
Blogger Brittany Watson Jepsen has a knack for taking something you’ve seen before, and reinventing it until it is tenfold more exciting. Case in point: Her exceptional Halloween coverage, which featured some of the most stunning DIY party décor and menu ideas.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Crafty DIYs, beautifully designed printables (think: menus and greeting cards), gift guides, party inspiration.
Interior designer Justina Blakeney’s blog, The Jungalow, and style is all about colour, plants, creative reuse, thrifting, and travel. Two words: bohemian dream.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Patterns and colour, décor ideas, DIY and how-to’s, behind-the-scenes looks at her interior design work.
San Francisco event planner and party and lifestyle blogger Jordan Ferney knows how to have a good time. Oh Happy Day is updated daily with DIY party projects, party planning ideas, interior design, weddings, letterpress and invitations, and more.
WHAT TO EXPECT: DIY projects, party inspiration and ideas, free printables (think: party bags and holiday gift tags), and sunny, cheery home imagery.

WHAT TO EXPECT: DIY projects (like the Floyd Leg Bench, pictured), interior trends, and personal photography.
The blog of Belgian designer Sarah Van Peteghem, Coco Lapine Design is the space where she shares all her up-to-the-minute inspirations. Her overarching aesthetic is clean and modern with a softly romantic touch.

Wit + Delight, the cult-popular lifestyle website of Minneapolis-based consultant Kate Arends, has garnered its very own brand of sorts: namely, simple elegance with an approachable yet edited perspective.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Perfectly curated round-ups, shopping wish lists, and beautiful interior eye candy.
Blogger and jewellery designer Jennifer Hagler has a passion for all things black, white, and Nordic-influenced. If you love the pared-down aesthetic, A Merry Mishap will be just your cup of tea.

Run by two design-loving strangers who met by sharing mutually adored images on Flickr, Desire to Inspire reflects a wide range of tastes and styles. Home tours, themed image roundups (the colour caramel or vignettes, for example), and heaps of interiors photography abounds.
WHAT TO EXPECT: That tumble-down-the-rabbit-hole effect of not being able to stop yourself from clicking through to the next page.
