Inspiration 101//

What I’ve come to find is we all need our inspiration as designers. We may have our own ideas that we can bring to life, but you still need inspiration and ideas to keep your creative juices flowing.

I follow several different blogs that have design tips, and home tours of other designers. I thought I’d take some time to share my favorites with you!

Check these out and subscribe! Trust me! They won’t bombard you with emails, but you will get some weekly inspiration of pretty, unique styles to implement in your own home.


  1. The Glitter Guide

The Glitter Guide does so many home tours that my creativity is overwhelming after seeing so many beautiful homes! Each one unique to their own style and way of living. Here’s a few pictures of my favorite’s with links as well.



2. Lauren Conrad

Lauren Conrad’s website is a mix of fashion, dining, primping, and decorating. I love her quick lists of decorating tips or ideas that you can easily replicate. She’s so great at making her DIY’s easy for everyone! Of course, here are a few of my favorites!



3. Style by Emily Henderson

I’ve dedicated an entire blog post to this girl! She rocks! I love her vintage style and her website is the ultimate place for inspiration. My favorite page to explore is her portfolio. All the different homes, styles, and ideas are beautiful and unique. Check some of my faves out!



4. The Haute Mess

The Haute Mess was started by Ashley Tisdale and sometimes I think she might be my spirit animal. I love their quick tips, DIY projects, and style. There’s a great variety for all styles and they’re easy reads so you can get at it!

Designer Inspiration//Nate Berkus

Yesterday on my lunch hour I spent a good 40 minutes in Target. I was that weird person going through aisles, pulling items off shelves and literally arranging them how I would if I was at home. I was secretly hoping they’d think I was a designer or something, but really I just got a lot of stares. #noshame

One of my favorite designers, target aside, is Nate Berkus. I have always loved every line he comes out with each season. He works with a lot of neutrals which is right up my alley these days. I saw his new line in stores yesterday and I was swooning!

Nate’s new line is full of rich, luxurious gold, plaid prints, and a marbled side table I couldn’t stop staring at. These items are not only perfect to accent your home with, but also for your holiday tables! He has beautiful, geometric candle holders that can be used as center decor on a Thanksgiving table, and, plaid print dessert plates and bowls for that pie and ice cream.

All that being said- here are some photos I took of my favorites. I might go broke after seeing all these beautiful pieces to buy!

To pretty to eat off of. That sketched, plaid pattern is gorgeous.
