Well hello there, interior design and décor lovers! Yes, I absolutely understand the craze and excitement whenever there’s a new space to give life to or an old one to inject with new energy and passion, and that’s precisely why I am writing this blog post about Australian interior design blogs – while staying unique in your décor endeavors is understood, everyone needs a little inspiration sometimes and what better way to find it than stalk some of the best décor blogs out there!
The list I am about to give is based solely on my personal tastes and décor choices, so be free to hate it or love it (hopefully, the latter)!
Without much further ado…
Blog #1 – Interiors Addict
Jen Bishop, a former journalist and magazine editor, is the founder of Interiors Addict; a passionate lover of beautiful design and an interior design enthusiast with little design qualifications, the girl is running a blog which is definitely one of my favorite and most gorgeous places to visit. As far as I am concerned, the passion of the team and exuberance are evident in each and every blog post, whether we are talking new products, inspiration or how to guides. If you love their website, you can always check out their sister site Reno Addict
Blog #2 – The Design Files
Back in 2008 a wonderful thing happened for all of us interior design lovers; Lucy Feagins, a Melbourne based design guru started a blog which has quickly evolved into a daily design inspiration and destination of many.
Lucy’s blog has been featured in such great mags like Out Magazine, Design Quarterly and Real Living Magazine. Her blog is definitely a must read for daily home inspiration, as it covers everything from Australian architecture to interiors and art. Intrigued?

Blog #3 – Absolutely Beautiful Things
I love, love, love this one! Anna Spiro started it way back in 2006, and the blog’s been flourishing since then. Spiro, who is the owner and curator of a unique and exquisite Brisbane shop called Black & Spiro, inspires us with her personal inspirations and talented laid out all through her blog. What’s amazing about her blog is that, it is not only the place to visit when you are lacking ideas, but a hot spot that offers great insight into the world of a buyer for an interiors shop.

Blog #4 – Get In My Home
Ok, Get In My Home may be the one that takes the cake. Emily is a big supporter of Australian products. She writes about them and combines them achieve worldly, charismatic and minimalist interiors. If there’s anything you need to achieve similar decor, you’ll find the local products here. Emily’s blog has been featured on Kit Home & She Knows so you can be sure that her way is the right way. Her chic style is accompanied with comfort food. Check out her blog for a drooling session.
Blog #5 – The Happy Home Blog
The name says it all. Belinda has been running the joint with grace and joy since 2007. What’s so special about this one? Well, Belinda has successfully merged good taste with family oriented decor. She loves DIY so if you are a fan too, you’ll enjoy reading her adventures with her beautiful four kids. One thing that I love is her take on her own style over the years. Read it here. She is consistent, her ideas are lovely and bring a dash of fresh air.
What has led to where she is now? She wrote for Fairfax Community Newspapers, then moved to Cosmopolitan magazine and she was one of the people behind the launch of Real Living magazine. She took a break from all that after her firstborn Zak came into the world. Three more rascals (this is how she calls them, so cute!) followed. That’s why her blog gives out that relaxed vibe you’ll feel comfortable with.
I hope you enjoyed this lovely, albeit short, list. Let us know if there’s a decor blog that stole your heart.
