The world of interior design is diverse and versatile, and everyone has their own opinion on what looks good. Every month we like to throw the spotlight on like-minded bloggers who match our approach to homes with their style knowledge – but who has made the grade this month?
A great blog that is only just approaching its third birthday, The Design Fairy shares plenty of inspirational ideas for home decorating and interior design. We love the attention to detail that is shown and the use of images really helps bring posts to life; giving us visual aids that show just how certain trends work together.
Originally started when the owner was studying Interior Design, the blog shows a real progression of character which adds another dimension to the fantastic posts. It’s rare that you get to follow the growth and development of someone with such a keen interest in interior design and we certainly relish the opportunity to do so.
Why we love it
Perhaps an easier question to answer would be ‘what don’t we love about The Design Fairy?’ With plenty of interesting posts and an easy to navigate website, we can spend hours browsing this site.
The language is familiar and conversational – so you don’t feel like you need a university degree to understand what’s being discussed. A vast selection of categories means posts are well organised. This is ideal if you’re looking for inspiration on a particular theme (such as Shabby Chic) or product (such as cushions) or if you’re just looking to explore the various avenues of interior design at your own pace.
With tips on how to decorate certain rooms or prepare your home for a change in season as well as personal thoughts on popular trends and the design elements used by leading designers, The Design Fairy shows unyielding dedication to improving the appearance of our homes. Comments are encouraged on all posts and more often than not you’ll get a direct response – a trait we certainly love to see in bloggers.
Whilst all of the posts on The Design Fairy offer a unique and personal approach to interior design there are some which go that extra mile. For those looking to read up on some of the latest trends and innovative ideas, here are a few of our favourite posts from the last month:
