When you are on the prowl for some home improvement ideas, turn to these blogs for inspiration but it’s certainly not wasted time.
This is the 5 Australian Design Blogs you need to read.
Style without the snobbery – and that’s why we all love it! Editor Jen Bishop is not a qualified interior designer, but that’s why the Interiors Addict blog is so good. Jen – and her team of bloggers – are easy to relate to. With 90,000 Australian readers, it’s now more of a news site than a blog. Her success is our win!
Paint me White
Sandy Palmer is a blogger and decorative painter from the Gold Coast who has a passion for upcycling old furniture. She loves to transform time worn pieces. Her blog Paint Me White is packed with photos and images rather than words and so provides great visual inspiration for the DIY home designer.

The Design Files
Which has been running since 2009, transformed from a blog to an e-zine after it was named by The Times (UK) as one of the world’s Top 50 design blogs. The e-zine covers architecture, interior design, gardens, food and art. Editor Lucy Feagins is a ‘go to’ design aficionado much loved by Australian media including The Block, Triple J and ABC radio. One of the coolest things to do on The Design Files is to look at the Australian Homes section to experience online tours through gorgeous Sydney and Melbourne homes.
Ish & Chi
Vivian, an accomplished, award-winning blogger, just screams yummy mummy. She lives and breathes design and even the Ish & Chi blog itself is presented in an eye-catching, creative way. The interviews she conducts give us a sneak peak into other people’s homes and lives. Interior design aside, you just have to check out her wedding dress!
Absolutely Beautiful Things
The title of this blog Absolutely Beautiful Things pretty much sums it up! Brisbane interior designer Anna Spiro has been running the blog since 2006 which is impressive as it means she’s got hundreds of articles you can browse through, but unfortunately she hasn’t posted since March 2014. The good news is her business Black & Spiro is still alive and well, so this blog acts as a wonderful archive for inspiration if you’re keen to live a bright and colourful life!
