Best of British-Interior Design Blogs

25 November 2011

It's been a few months now since we first discovered the wonderful world of social media and blogging but it's safe to say we're hooked! And one of the best bits of our journey has been discovering the bucket loads of interior design bloggers based here in the UK. We're continuously impressed with the flair and style of our home-grown talent so we thought it was high time we honoured all their hard work in the form of a blog post. So without further ado, we present unto you our top picks for British interior design blogs.

Fabric of My Life

This blog is the brainchild of Kate Baxter who also writes a weekly column for Heart Home magazine. Kate has a keen eye for great design and puts together some great blog posts, which we gobble up every time as if we haven't been fed for days. And as if this wasn't enough of an accolade (cough, cough), "Fabric Of My Life" was also named by The Times as one of the top 50 design blogs. So what are you waiting for? Jump on over and find out what all the fuss is about.

Country Days

Not strictly an interior design blog but still one that is well worth subscribing too, as it is always stuffed full of goodies that we are always sharing over on Twitter. Country Days is brought to you by the editor of Country Homes and Interiors, Rhoda Parry, who certainly has her finger on the pulse when it comes to all things rural.  A great mix of countryside goodies and inspiring interiors.

Confessions of a Design Geek

Confessions of a Design Geek is another one of our top picks and is written by self confessed 'design geek', Katie Treggiden. Stuffed full of inspirational interiors, electrifying photos, personal projects plus a great selection of interviews with all sorts of top design bods - this is simply one blog you cannot miss out on. Katie also won the prestigious "Best Interior Design Blog in Great Britain" in the MyDeco Design Democracy Awards 2010. A blog driven by pure passion for all things design.

Heather Jenkinson

Another of our favourites comes from London based interior designer, Heather Jenkinson, who was one of our very first friends on Twitter.  She showcases her impeccable taste and flair for interior design in all of her posts as well as giving her readers a sneak peak into her latest projects. A great blog if you want a bit of insight into the life of a top interior designer.

Bright Bazaar

This is the blog for you if you like a big splash of colour in your life - the tagline 'because beige is boring' says it all. Bright Bazaar is one of the most visually pleasing blogs out there - every post is a work of art and good design runs through every aspect of this blog. Mr Bazaar, also known as Will, has a great eye for all things colourful - a welcome breath of fresh air for those who are bored of dull, monochrome interiors. Good job!

Pippa Jameson Interiors

Another gem of a blog from interior designer, Pippa Jameson - who also used to be Deputy Editor of BBC Good Homes. As you would expect from an interiors guru like Pippa, the blog is stuffed full of the latest interior trends and inspirations as well as some great reader competitions. One of the best parts of this blog, is that you get the chance to 'Ask The Experts' which is a great little service where you can get all of your interiors questions answered by Pippa and her expert panel. A brilliant idea for those stuck in a decorating rut or just in need of a bit of advice.

Something Nice Today

A newly launched blog, that takes the place of one of our firm favourites "In The Pursuit Of Loveliness". Written by the wonderful Ellie, who is a regular contributor for online interiors magazine, Heart Home, the new blog does not disappoint. Whilst the new blog is not strictly focused on interiors, it still ticks all the boxes for us with Ellie's personal recommendations on the nicest things to buy, make, read and see. Really looking forward to seeing this blog evolve into something as wonderful as her last blog.

Dreamwall Style

We're big fans of this blog and also the lovely Hannah Coleman who runs it - who couldn't love someone that made it through to some of the final stages of Pop Idol? Hannah is a big personality on the interior design circuit and this personality shines through on Dreamwall Style. A great mixture of design and interiors, you really can't go wrong reading this blog.

Dear Designers

This was one of our first blog discoveries and it set the bar very high for all the blogs we read afterwards. Dear Designers is brought to you by the wonderful Carole King, who is also the editor of Heart Home magazine. Carole has simply impeccable taste and if we're ever feeling short of inspiration, this is our one stop shop for getting our creative juices flowing again.
