Weekend Reading : Links I’m Loving (Home Edition)



Lately our weekends have been more about catching up on things that slip through the cracks during the week and less about relaxing.  We typically have a list of home projects that need attention come Saturday morning.  Admittedly though, as I get older and home decor and interior design become more of a passion of mine, I actually look forward to it.

We are  currently working on giving our living room a mini-makeover.  I promise to share pictures once it’s done.  Since we are currently looking for a new home and hope to move soon, we don’t want to make any major changes but it does need a little let’s say...finessing. 

To make a long story short, I’ve been kinda obsessed with home decor and interior design blogs and and websites and I wanted to share some of my favorites.  

DOMAINE HOME: A girl can dream, can’t she? This site is full of celebrity house tours from which to garner inspiration, but don’t be fooled, it’s not all chichi.  It’s also a source for attainable decor ideas and unique product. 

YOUNG HOUSE LOVE: Started by a young couple who happened to discover their love for DIY and home decor while planning their backyard wedding.  They’ve since written a New York Times best seller and designed their own lighting collection, just to name a few accomplishments.  They've bought, sold and remodeled three houses on the blog which they've detailed through pictures.  It’s fun to live vicariously through them.    

IKEA HACKERS: I thought I had outgrown my IKEA phase but something tells me I never will.  This site is all about ideas and DIY tutorials on how to repurpose or modify IKEA furniture.  When you are through reading it no one will ever guess that dresser came from IKEA.   

SMITTEN STUDIO:  Clean aesthetic and simple design come as no surprise in this lifestyle and design blog run by a former graphic designer.  She also has a little online shop where she sells artisanal items all made in the USA by herself, her father or local artists.  

DECOR 8: This blogger and her contributing writers keep you up to date on the latest trends and creative ideas.  They also showcase homes and provide delicious recipes.  Let’s face it, the kitchen is the heart of the home after all.  

Happy reading and have a great weekend!
