10 Interior Design Blogs to Follow

Creating a space that looks like it was ripped straight from the pages of a Better Home and Gardens magazine, that is inhabitable, is challenging even for the best DIY-ers. Yet, it is so rewarding to possess a space that is beautiful, well-organized, functional and chic. If you’re any thing like me, you designate space in your tiny apartment for power tools and reserve time on the weekends to shop local antique stores for the perfect accessories.
