Of course, we turn to our favorite design blogs for decorating, color and DIY inspiration throughout the year. Let's not forget that they are also an awesome source for holiday decor eye candy, too. After careful research (it was tough, but someone had to do it), we rounded up five ah-mazing design blogs you should check out for holiday decorating inspiration.
Cassie from Hi Sugarplum always delivers fresh ideas for jazzing up your home with budget-friendly decor ideas and DIY projects. This witty and crafty momma (honestly, we don't know what we love more, her craftiness or smartly delivered sarcasm) transforms boring rooms in her own home into stylish and fun spaces. Be sure to click over throughout the holidays, as she's sure to have creative decorating ideas and original DIY projects for your viewing pleasure. (We're still crushing her DIY Sequin Christmas Trees from last year.)
We love the Nester's whole philosophy about stress-free decorating. As her tagline suggests, "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful" — and it really doesn't! This is just the attitude we need to carry us through the often anxiety-ridden holidays. Every year, Nesting Place has a bevy of holiday decorating ideas, including her wildly popular Christmas Tour of Homes linky party where hundreds of bloggers link up pictures of their decorated homes.
My Blessed Life
If you haven't checked out Myra's blog, My Blessed Life, you are missing out. Filled with fabulous tips and tricks for creating a home that is not only beautiful, but also filled with heart. From scouting thrifty treasures to sharing creative DIY projects, Myra's blog is an amazing spot to pick up Thanksgiving and Christmas ideas. Be sure to check out her beautiful vintage Christmas mantel from last year.
The Lettered Cottage
Kevin and Layla Palmer are passionate about storytelling and fixing up homes — as their blog name The Lettered Cottage suggests. Both have a knack for infusing character into the spaces they design. You can expect to tune into their blog this holiday season and find original DIY projects (they're always turning out cute projects for HGTV.com) and stylish decorating ideas like this snowflake curtain from last year.
The Inspired Room
The design blog The Inspired Room is known for sharing doable design and homemaking ideas on a budget. Always a trustworthy spot to find gorgeous design inspiration, you'll find the holiday decorating season is no exception. Melissa delivers loads of creative ideas about decorating your whole house for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We love the coastal cottage feel she brought to her Christmas decorating last year.
