Blogs I Love – View Along The Way

I have been finding so many great blogs lately that I want to share, so I’m starting a series called “Blogs I Love”. I’m so inspired by the DIYers out there, who can take a little bit of money and some hard work and transform their space. Although I love high end interior design, it is much easier to design with an unlimited budget, I’m just as impressed with the DIYers who are making beautiful and elegant homes on a budget.

So lets get started.

The first blog to start this series is View Along the WayThis young couple is amazing. They are doing such a great job transforming their home that they bought as a foreclosure.

There is so much information on this blog along with great photos and step by step instructions, from large projects to small.

Here are some of my favorites (all photo via View Along the Way)

Their master bedroom closet is a great makeover. Lots of organization in a small space but it is really elegant and they used my favorite Anthropologie wallpaper.

Everything is so organized and pretty. The Anthropologie Pink Peony wallpaper is one of my favorites. Everything is linked in the blog post which you can check out here.

This jewelry section of the closet is my favorite.

They did a wonderful job on their home office. This built-in bookshelf wall is amazing. It looks so custom and they did it all themselves. #impressed

I was looking for Greek Key curtains for my daughters room and that is when I found this DIY project and how I came to love this site.

These curtains are made using simple IKEA white curtains and adding ribbon, all without sewing. I’m thinking of trying this one.

All the best,

Joy
