Decorating SOS.

Ladies (and gentlemen) I am on the hunt for decorating blogs. Please direct me where to go for inspiration. Strangely enough, it was easier for me to locate wedding blogs than the decorating ones. You'd think more people would be decorating their homes versus getting married? No? Okay.


I have a few books & magazines, as well as clippings I've been keeping over the years that I'm currently using to map out ideas. However, I love seeing new twists and contrasting colors done by other people. Only because I have a limited budget and cannot afford to make too many painting mistakes. 


So, take pity and throw me a bone please? Merci!

i'm sure you've seen design sponge, but i really enjoy going through the sneak peeks of others' houses for inspiration when i'm feeling anxious to redecorate.

There are LOTS more out there. In fact you'll soon find out that design blogs are just as popular as wedding blogs. Sometimes one blog leads you to another, etc.

Thanks for the suggestions, ladies!

Lei, you're so right about one blog leading you to another. I can't wait to go home and start exploring!

ah, this one is pretty good, too:

they chronicle all of the huge renovations that they do on their new house, and get all kinds of good things at thrift stores. i think that she once said she wouldn't spend more than $25 on any single piece of furniture or decoration for their home. with exceptions, of course.
