Home décor doesn’t have to be an expensive affair. Simple tweaks, changes, and additions can work wonders in keeping things interesting. However, when you are out of ideas it can be difficult to update your space and give it a fresh appeal. So we searched the internet for some inspiration to help you explore new styles and spruce up your space. Here are our top picks.
My Scandinavian Home
Originally from London, Niki Brantmark started tilting towards the simple, minimalistic and functional approach of Scandinavian design when she moved to Sweden. In her blog, she gives you a peek inside her own coastal home and shares other Scandinavian-inspired interior design ideas as well. With her help you can easily create your own little Scandinavian paradise wherever you live. Even if you can’t exactly replicate her ideas, just scrolling through her posts and photos will give you enough inspiration to do something similar yourself. 

IHeart Organizing
Jennifer Jones is the founder of the blog IHeart Organizing. She believes in the philosophy that a simple and clean home is a beautiful home. In her blog, she shows you how the simplest of things can transform your home and that simplifying a space is easy and cost effective too. Explore her blog to find out how small changes can make a room feel brand new. Jennifer used to strive for perfection but over time has realized the beauty and necessity of balance and simplicity and that’s what her blog inspires you to do as well. 

Martha Stewart
Might be a little old school but Martha Stewart and home decor go hand-in-hand. Her site is an eclectic blend of makeovers, designs, and decor. From the simplest idea on the best way to organize a kitchen to containing the blueprint of a master bedroom, this site has everything you might ever need in terms of décor and design. You can also see wonderful room makeovers and décor experiments. There’s just so much on her site that you will never be short of ideas. 

Reading My Tea Leaves 
Reading My Tea Leaves is a carefully executed blog that chronicles the lives of a couple living in a 240-square foot tiny apartment in Brooklyn. The blog is all about finding beauty in the art of small space living. If nothing else, we guarantee you will find a moment of Zen while looking at their visually arresting photographs and marveling at the peace they seem to feel even when they are bumping and crashing into each other all the time. One segment we recommend is the My Week in Objects (Mostly) that is basically photos of things that were the highlight of the couple’s week. The simple shots will force you to find beauty in the little things around you.

The Inspired Room
The founder of the blog, The Inspired Room, Melissa Michaels has one mission: To help you fall in love with the home you have. Here she shares budget friendly approaches to decorating that can help you give your home a fresh new appeal. And she shows you how you can reuse and repurpose the things you already have at home. She also shares transformations that happen in her own home to help you come up with your own ideas. The Inspired Room can also be a fun site to browse when you need something to instantly uplift your mood.

Apartment Therapy
This site is a treasure trove of ideas. And it’s especially great for those with small spaces. It has really cool ideas for maximizing your space along with home tours of people living in small (sometimes downright tiny) homes. Reading stories of people and their homes can also act as the motivational boost you need to give your home a revamp. The before and after pictures of kitchens, bathrooms, and other spaces around the house are also awe-inspiring. The site also has many articles with tips and tricks related to home décor that you might find useful.

Apartment 34
There is a site that’s just so clean and precise that you can help but wonder how you and your home too can be just as beautifully put together. There is design and décor inspiration at every click here. Apartment 34 not only offers inspiring tips and ideas for an intentional approach to modern living, there are tons of ideas on sophisticated décor, style, cooking, travel, and entertaining. The founder of the blog, Erin Hiemstra, originally intended for the blog to chronicle the renovation journey of her first condo in Seattle but it has morphed into so much more than just that. Besides décor, you can also get your daily dose of fashion and beauty tips here.
