Interior Styling Inspiration

February 21, 2011

Whether you are brand new to decorating or an oldie but goodie pro, you’ll be inspired by the interiors over at the decor8 Interior Styling group on Flickr. Why? Because these homes are real homes, not styled to perfection but styled for living. The group has nearly 3,000 members (I’m really hoping you’ll join so we can hit the 3K mark soon!) from all over the globe and I’m so proud of it because each precious member plays a very special part in making it a fun spot to find great decorating ideas that are attainable and beautiful. Here are a few lovely corners from some of the most recent submissions to the group — these homes caught my eye today.

    I totally love this! Its always great to be able to browse through REAL homes, I find they often have a lot more personality than the overly styled magazine stuff (I won’t lie though, I like mags too) but this is a nice break from that :)

    Yes. 8foot6’s vintage corner and kootoyoo’s coffee sack footstool! I love that stool! Thank you for reminding me of your group – I do love looking at real spaces.

    I absolutely love the inspiration from this group! I haven’t posted a picture in a while but I just moved and I’m hoping in the next little bit, I’ll have a ton of images to post!

    Such beautiful images! They’ve totally cheered up my dreary Monday…now I’m off to join the Flikr group!

    Wow, these are so beautiful. Real, accessible styling is so beautiful. I’d take these over styled to perfection any day!

    Yeah, I’m number 2980. ;) I definitely could use some inspiration as we’ve just gotten the couch of our dreams and now everything in my little apartment needs to be rethought and edited again. And hopefully it will result in some good contributions to the Flikr group. :)

    I love how much thought goes in to these spaces! I need to attack my house corner by corner, I think…

    So many wonderful inspirations. I would love to “construct” a mirrors wall in my apartment

    I love every one of them, Holly! I’m actually a member of your Flickr group but I haven’t uploaded any pictures there in a while. Maybe I should :)

    Just doing my usual Decor8 catch up and imagine my surprise to find my hydrangeas photo in amongst such prettiness from the Interior styling group.
    Thank you treasure, for including my little kitchen photo.

    I always seek to upload certain interior photos of mine, to your group only, so there’s no repetitiveness.
    I find much to be inspired by there, as like you say it’s all Real homes. And people around the world have such eclectic and excellent taste. At least that’s how it seems in your carefully edited selection for us within the group pool.
    Love Kat x

    I’m trying to experiment with more color, but all the white designs make me SWOON. Sigh. :)

    Such beautiful pics! I just love the dinner table one – I’m a big believer in going all out for dinners with the special touches and this looks like a table I’d love to be invited to! I’m also drawn to the picture of the white table with the wire basket underneath – love the contrast between the smooth white table, the delicate flowers and the wire basket. Such decor happiness!

    I like the design of the frame with butterfly. Overall, nice arrangement
    for a bedroom with lots of flowers.

  • Reply bg February 28, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    What kind of flowers are these?
