Domino editors find inspiration in just about everything—be it a New York City steakhouse, iconic minimalist furniture, a clever Ikea hack, or a colorful new office—but one source we always come back to? Design bloggers, who are pretty much a steady stream of decor envy and DIY project after DIY project. With so many talented creators out there, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find someone who shares your affinity for one particular style.

Not sure where to start on compiling your list of must-follows? Here, the design bloggers we’ll be keeping up with this year—including some up-and-comers you’ll be seeing on the interiors scene for years to come.

Joy Cho, Oh Joy

At this point, Oh Joy is less a blog and more a veritable empire. Joy Cho has turned her graphic design studio of playful prints and vibrant hues into three successful books and a slew of product collections, ranging from a tile line to a range of disposable dinnerware to a capsule collection of stylish luggage. Her blog is still going strong as the home for all her ventures, and we still love keeping up with her design tips and lifestyle guides.


Historias de Casa

Okay, Historias de Casa is written in Portuguese, so you’ll have to translate it to read the stories (pro tip: use the Chrome browser and Google will translate automatically), but it’s worth it. The pair behind the Brazilian blog, Bruna and Paula, take us inside lovely, interesting homes, shops, and studios in Sao Paulo and beyond. Even if the narrative gets lost in translation, the images provide more than enough colorful, plant-filled inspiration that will make you want to move to Brazil, or at least channel the boho vibes in your own home (they offer some easy DIYs to do just that).

Erin Boyle, Reading My Tea Leaves

Erin is a veritable small space expert, so the fact that her blog

reading my tea leaves

was named Domino’s Best Small Space Living Blog is really no surprise. Her blog combines all the best tips on how to style a

tiny apartment

with a commitment to promoting sustainability and conscious consumption.


Carmeon Hamilton, Cohesive Randomness

The Memphis-based interior designer and stylist runs a successful design business (Nubi Interiors) in addition to a playful blog where she shares everything from snapshots of her home renovations to personal style.

Stephanie Watkins, Casa Watkins Living

We are in love with Stephanie’s plant-filled “global eclectic” home; one look at her blog and you will be, too. Her style is super colorful and vibrant, full of globally-inspired finds that you’ll actually be able to purchase via the “shop” section of her blog. She also has a slew of easy DIY projects to try on your next rainy weekend morning.

Emily Blanchard, Emily Everyday

Aiming to empower women through their homes, Emily’s blog is dedicated to sharing her personal design journey. Check out Emily Everyday for helpful tips on things like where to buy the best

vintage rugs

as well as fun DIY projects.


Amber Lewis, Amber Interiors

As the winner of our Best Interior Design Blog category last year, we had to include Amber in this list. Her cheery personality reads through every blog post, and her masterful grasp on the California-cool style keeps us coming back.
