Home Is Where My Story Begins

My Favorite Home Decor Blogs – Right Now

Choosing a favorite blog is like choosing a favorite children’s book author.  Each time I take out a new book, in my classroom, I tell my kids that this is truly my favorite author.  Usually, I’m met with several eye rolls and kids saying, “You always tell us that this is your favorite author!”  It’s true.  I have lots of favorites.  I cannot pick just one. 

Well, I feel the same way about blogs.  Each time I come across a new-to-me blog with gorgeous photos, a style that I strive for, or inspirational projects, I decide that this must be my new favorite blog.  Although, I must confess, I never really let go of my old favorites.  So, today, I’d like to share my favorite home decor… right now.  I guess I’m adding them to my list of favorites. 

First up, is my most recent addition to the favorites list.  Golden Boys and Me is a blog I connected to in many ways.  The author, Courtney, is a teacher (once a teacher, always a teacher in my opinion) who now stays home with her family.  I love her style and photography.  There is a warm and coziness to her home decor, but it’s light and bright at the same time.  I tend to struggle with the combination of the two in my own home, so I admire her decorating style.

I think I need to scour Goodwill for a tray like the one below and create a display like this on my ottoman in the living room. Or maybe I’ll just wait until Christmas and see what she comes up with then.


I spotted this photo last week on the Pottery Barn blog.
 Love, love, love!

Let me tell you, friends, I have a blank wall above my bed and a white bedspread with very little color in the room.  My bedroom is screaming for this look!  I know the Pottery Barn quilt was part of the inspiration for this look, and I don’t actually own this particular Pottery Barn quilt, but I may have mentioned a time or two that I’m a quilter.  I see a jewel toned, scrappy, star quilt in my future!  When I post a similar looking bedroom photo on my blog in the coming months, you’ll know where the inspiration came from!


Now, we move onto Finding Home.  Seriously, I think Laura could be my BFF. She just seems like a fun person who I would love to hang out with.  Again, I love her style because it’s warm and cozy, but still light and bright.  I love the way she uses natural materials in her displays.  
At my house, I have a great wooden box sitting on my dining room table, a bundle of wheat, and a few other fall items.  You may be wondering why I’ve never shared a picture of my fall table display.  Well, it doesn’t exactly look as pretty as this one.  Mine is kind of a “Pinterest Fail” look.  I’m not even going to keep trying with the fall display.  I’m just going to move right onto Christmas.  What are we putting on our Christmas tables, Laura?  I’ll try whatever you do!


Her living room is gorgeous!  I love her home because it’s custom, but it didn’t start out that way.  They moved into a builder-grade home and have gradually made it their own.  They’ve made it special and unique.  The first time I found this blog, was through Pinterest.  I spotted the picture below and pinned it, because I’d love to have built-ins like this in my own living room.

So, there you have it!  These are my favorite Home Decor blogs right now.  I eagerly await their posts each day (or every few days) because I know there is inspiration right around the corner!  If you have a favorite blog, please leave a comment about it in this post, even if it’s your own!  I’d love to hear about it and why it inspires you. I’ll be sharing my favorite sewing and photography blogs later in the week.

Happy decorating!

    Hi Becca!
    I am so honored to be included in this post, as I am still a newbie in the blogging world. I am a huge fan of Laura's blog as well and find so much inspiration from her. I agree, once a teacher, always a teacher 🙂 I also know exactly what you mean by having many favorite authors…I'm with you on that too! I will be watching to see the quilt you create. How I envy that you have that talent! Sewing is decidedly not my strong point, though I wish it was.

    Thanks for making my day!

    Looking forward to getting to know you better,
