As an abstract artist I like to keep up with interior design trends and interior design blogs are a great place to start to get design ideas and gain a great understanding of how all the elements of an interior work synergistically.
Here’s some interior design blogs that are inspiring me at the moment.
Ben Pentreath studied Art History at the University of Edinburgh and went on to study architecture and found his own architectural and interior design studio. The designs this studio produces are so respectful of place and have a truly timeless appeal. Ben’s blog celebrates life and he writes beautifully about decoration, architecture, gardening and travels. He captures the grace of the UK in particular and reminds me just how glorious this country can be. Sometimes it’s just lovely to be inspired of the hues, the activity and the seasons of home.
Abigail Ahern’s UK blog is full of practical advice and has plenty of interior design ideas that are cutting edge and very beautiful. It’s a great place for inspiration and features blogs such as How to become your own interior designer and the worst things you can do with paint.
The founders of Apartment Therapy believe that a calm, healthy and beautiful home is a necessary foundation for happiness and success in the world. This very successful New York blog takes the mystery out of interior design and features ideas and inspiration, design 101, how to work with colour, design trends and how to develop a personal style. Blogs such as Want to boost your creativity and productivity? Try these paint colours and a sophisticated new colour trend we can’t get enough all help me to brainstorm new ideas for future wall art.
Winner of several awards, this UK design and lifestyle blog focuses on enduring modern design and shows just how honesty and simplicity can have sustained impact on an interior environment. I particularly like Helen’s love of minimalism which something I like to work with as an artist.
