If you aren’t already keeping up with this blog (and why aren’t you), you’re likely to recognise Sophie Robinson from her regular appearances on TV including DIY SOS, the Great Interior Design Challenge and Dream Home Makeovers. Sophie’s ‘tribe of colour lovers’ can sign up to her mailing list to keep up with what she’s up to, which happens to include regular updates on her eponymous blog – read up on renovation reveals and home makeovers she’s recently been a part of to get inspiration for your own space.
Living chic doesn’t have to come with a big price tag if you’re not working with that kind of budget but still want a comfortable and creatively-put together home. Love Chic Living is living proof, as blogger and interiors writer Jen Stanbrook gathers the best ideas available now for achievable makeovers. Admittedly ‘obsessed’ with home interiors, Jen even shares her own home designs in the My Home channel – take a digital look around, right from the comfort of your own home.

Ringing the bell for quality home quality is Geraldine Tan, who shares her ‘passion for colour, design and decorating’ over at the Little Big Bell blog.

Get office chairs for maintaining your posture during home working, spruce the space up with awesome artwork and find something unusual and quirky for your desk – Little Big Bell has recommendations for all of them.
Carole King’s Dear Designer’s Blog sounds a lot like the opening of letters to an Interiors Agony Aunt – luckily, the content ensures you won’t need any extra help. This ‘home of inspiring spaces and places’ is split into sections on Interiors, Travel, My Home and Country Cottage and recent content has covered great plans for gardens, ideas for muted coloured kitchens and easy ways to optimise your space (very important if you’re spending a lot of time at home these days).
