5 Favorite Home Decor Blogs

1. Sky Lark House

My friend Anna is the face behind the blog Sky Lark House. I happened upon Anna’s blog about three months ago and was immediately hooked.  She is immensely talented and carries so much passion, which shines through in her writing. Anna tells some hilarious tales in her posts, therefore making her relatable and such a down to earth lady.

Sky Lark House blog has amazing content. Anna writes about unique antique and vintage pieces, many of which I have never seen before! She also has tutorials for re-finishing antique furniture as well as simple home decor DIY projects. Anna and I worked on a door basket project together a few weeks ago and it was SO fun.

I admire Anna’s work on Sky Lark House for the simple yet beautiful nature of her photography and the ease of her writing. Anna is a beautiful person doing amazing work. This blog inspires and pushes me in so many ways creatively and I hope you go say hello!

2. The Crowned Goat

CoCo is the content creator of The Crowned Goat blog. I’ve gotten to know CoCo through many link parties over the past few months. CoCo’s blog is full of inspiration for your home as well as beautiful life advice. You will find lovely ideas for decorating your home, creating and setting a pretty table and tutorials for simple home decor DIY projects, just to name a few.

One of my favorite parts of The Crowned Goat blog is the ‘From the Front Porch’ series. These posts usually come out every Friday and each one is chock full of wisdom and lovely home ideas. CoCo writes so elegantly and candidly about life, empathy, and offers amazing insight on how to keep showing up even when it’s hard. Every time I read these posts I feel like she is speaking directly to me and her words are incredibly encouraging.

The third blog I want to share today is Lora Bloomquist Create and Ponder!  Lora, like myself, hails from the great state of Minnesota and is a vintage loving soul. Her blog is full of AMAZING ideas for finding, collecting, and decorating with vintage decor. Lora has been doing this for a very long time and is extremely knowledgeable. At Lora Bloomquist Create and Ponder you can find things such as tips for shopping at thrift stores, ideas for styling vintage decor, and ways to re-purpose vintage linens. That’s just scratching the surface!

I pull so much inspiration from Lora’s blog. Her creativity is incredible which, in return, pushes and enhances my creativity. She gives tips on how to turn vintage dishware into decor or ways to decorate with old ladders! By reading Lora’s blog, I have found new ways of creating and doing that I never would have come up with otherwise!  Like me, her love for vintage home decor runs deep. I am amazed at how she styles and displays all of her collections in beautiful and unique ways.

Aliya is the creator and blogger of Open Doors Open Hearts. Her blog is a welcoming and loving space, full of encouragement and inspiration. Aliya writes about thrifting, decorating, and gardening. You can also find some super tasty recipes! I can feel her warm personality each time I read her blog, making everything she does genuine.

Aliya has such a beautiful decorating style. To me, it feels like European influences mixed with modern farmhouse. She uses simple decorations that make a big impact such as open shelving, vintage copper, florals and vintage art. What is so lovely about Open Doors Open Hearts is how Aliya makes everything she does seem super achievable. She gives you multiple options on how to attain what she is teaching which is why her blog is so relatable.
