The key to interior design to become a student of the art form and draw inspiration from other decorators. To do that, you should check out these 10 interior design blogs.
Millennials are approximately 1/3 of the home purchasing population. They are also spending more on renovations and interior design than any other generation.
Millennials spent an average of $26,000 on home renovations and design last year. This may not sound like much, but it is a 7% increase from the year prior.
Many young people are putting money into the way their homes look. But do they even know how to get the looks they want?
If you or someone you know is buying or redecorating a home, then look no further than the internet for creativity. Before stepping foot in a store, stroll onto these ten interior design blogs for some serious inspiration.
1. Amber Interiors
Amber Lewis’s interior design blog is a VIP tour into her Los Angeles based workspace. You should keep your eye on this website to get pointers and interior images that convey a chic boho look.
