Moving into a new space can be exciting and… overwhelming.  It’s a beautiful blank canvas, and you’re excited to create a new environment you LOVE.  But it’s also a lot to do.  So where do you turn?  If you’re like me, you turn to your Pinterest board and the endless curated pictures on the internet.  But if you need a guide on your journey, I’ve found some home bloggers that may become your new best friends.

Our Favorite Home Bloggers

Creative, mom, and foodie Kate Arends has extensive experience in the design industry, and she talks about everything from design to parenting, wellness, entertaining – and we love it.  No matter what you were looking for when you searched “home bloggers,” you’ll find something that interests you here.


If you’re looking for DIY’s, crafts, holiday party themes, and a mama who just gets it – look no further.  This mommy-of-four and home blogger shares creative tutorials and inspiration that will fit your busy family life.


Design*Sponge has been going strong for 14 years, and author Grace Bonney is sitting in a top spot of the Forbes list of home influencers. She’s got everything from inspiration, podcasts, a book called “In the Company of Women” with advice from entrepreneurs and artists, and a sleek layout that makes it all easy to find.  Our favorite part? Under interiors, you can refine your search by country, state, city, etc… so you can find inspiration in your own backyard.  Neat, huh?

Her slogan is “Luxe Living for Less” and she lives up to it – her blog features a daily find that takes an overpriced but gorgeous piece and shows you where to find a more reasonable alternative, often for less than half the price.
