I love nothing more than sitting down with a cup of Barry’s Tea on a Sunday evening. Mr O is off playing GAA and I get the T.V to myself, sounds like heaven doesn’t it? Oh. Believe me…It is! Picture this… Gilmore Girl repeats on Netflix, Hot Tea made by Me (perfect) and catching up on my favourite blogs. It is amazing how many bloggers are out there. I am partial to reading the interior design blogs and watching them create fabulous content. Content that you could be reading in Aquarius or Inside out Arabia but instead have it at the tips of you’re fingers. I love visiting friends homes and seeing how they pull pieces together. Truthfully it is one thing that is not in my genes to do. I am more of a; walk into IKEA view a room and say “Yes” bring that all to my home! I have friends who are so skilled at picking decor but it just doesn’t come naturally to me. Anyway, I decided to round up some of my favourite Interior Bloggers for you. My top 5 are from different parts of the globe. Surprisingly they all have different interior tastes but I can assure you, If they asked you to move in – you would.
I am cheating already, Kat is not just an interior blogger. Kat is a lifestyle blogger but lately has been posting about renovations in her home and I am just loving it. Kat has such an amazing sense of style, pulling together pieces I would never have thought of and creating looks. It probably helps that Kat lives in the most beautiful apartment on the Palm. I always feel like I have stepped into Instagram perfection. Oh and talking about perfection. Kat has the most beautiful Daughter Poppy. So beautiful that she has her own Instagram account. Check them both out!
Jessica’s Blog is fairly new but after spending hours trawling through her Instagram account I can safely say she is a firm favourite. Jessica has a classic timeless style, the way she mixes classic pieces with modern fabrics is quite inspiring. Jester Design was created in 2013 whilst Jessica was on maternity leave with her first born Eva. With hard work and her crafty skills her vision was brought to life. Now we can follow her blog “Jessica’s Diaries” and follow her dreams becoming a reality. With her handsome hubby and two beautiful little loves under 3 (hats of to you Jess) what a great journey to be on. Give her a follow you won’t be disappointed. Boss Lady and Super Mum all rolled into one!
I am cheating here. Totally cheating. Aisling the proud owner of Adore Decor just so happens to be a beautiful friend of mine. Truth be told, even if she wasn’t my friend she would be my weekly read! A proper down to earth and hardworking blogger, she runs her blog alongside her own interior company. One of the things that makes Aisling’s blog so successful is her honesty. She is so honest in what she likes and dislikes. What is in style and what certainly is not. I admire her guts and am crazy jealous of her super stylish home! Aisling’s wishlists quickly become my shopping lists, much to Mr O’s dismay. How she sneaks such amazing pieces into her home with out her Mr Y noticing is a skill in itself. With Mr Y on her side and 3 model children and the fact she reminds me of Kylie Minogue. She is definitely one to watch!!
Coffee, plants, beautiful beaches, flat lays and her two handsome little loves, I absolutely LOVE Linda’s aesthetic and spend way too long scrolling her Instagram feed wishing I had her home and her eye for detail. This Dubai Dutchie is one of the most established interior blogger’s in Dubai. Live Loud Girls blog is full of inspiration, with how to articles and on trending DIYs. Linda helps readers decorate their homes. Even people like me who are on a tighter budget. She shows us expensive pieces that yes are extremely beautiful, but then shows us cheaper options. Her little loves play room is incredible but my favourite piece in her home has to be, a wedding photo she has blown up in her living room! I never knew something so precious could come to life in such an artistic way. Oh and did I mention she is a total babe?
That minimalist Scandi chic look. Only some people can pull it off like a fine art and Kathryn is certainly one of them! I can only ever dream of having a clutter free home. Mr O thinks it is ‘totally doable’ but once again – this is not in my genes. I came from a home of “stuff” where mcdonalds toys became ornaments, surely 30 years on they are nearly worth something? I will have to check Ebay! Anyway, If clean muted photos are your thing then Kathryn’s Instagram needs to be followed. I can spend hours swooning over every single photo she posts to Insta. Clearly she knows how to handle a camera as her pictures are always so light and airy. Every now and then you get a photo of her two little loves (who are to die for) and not forgetting the cutest puppy in Dubai. We also need to take a minute to appreciate Kathryn’s amazing blog design, I am obssessed!
So there you have it. My top five interior bloggers at the moment.
Love, Helly x
