Top 25 Home Design #15 & 16
It's a biological fact that decorating goes hand in hand with motherhood. Even after the initial urge to nest subsides (in which you transform a neglected nook in your home into an adorable nursery using only spackle, sweat, and a hand-me-down crib), your children's constant growth dictates periodic re-dos of the space you share as a family.
Out goes the crib, in comes a twin bed...no more room for the home office that was hiding in the nursery...cleverly recreate it in a hallway closet...add twins to the family, get a bigger kitchen table...ready to get rid of the kids' play table...refinish it as a new end table for the porch…
And so on, all the way up to the day your no-longer little one leaves home, and you finally get that nook back and transform it into something else entirely: a craft room maybe?
Even if you've never experienced design fever, you may well start to after looking at our list of the top 25 design blogs, as shared and ranked by Circle of Moms members.
These resourceful writers brighten our days with eye candy from the worlds of decor, architecture, design, food, and everything that falls under those umbrellas, including thrifting for vintage finds, inspiring before & after transformations, and "get the look" how-to's for readers on a budget. Read on, and just see if (as the husband of blogger #5, Emily Clark, shared on her blog) you don't find yourself "intently staring at a blank wall" and mentally canceling all plans for the weekend.

Tell us a little about your blog?
Living Beautifully Everyday is the core of my design philosophy. Posts under this category are devoted to sharing thoughts, ideas and inspiration that you can incorporate in your own life or home. The philosophy behind this ongoing series is to use the beautiful things we own everyday and to strive to eliminate labeling things we own as off-limits, for special occasions or guest use only. That philosophy stretches from linens, china and fine soaps to shoe storage, flowers, food items and everything in between!

What inspired you to start blogging?
I’m a stay-at-home mom/very part-time night nurse. I have an amazing husband and two beautiful boys. I love staying home, it’s my favorite place to be. Plus I love to create something from nothing with my own two hands. So why not start a blog to share it with others?! Blogging has been a huge blessing to me. While sharing and inspiring others to create and decorate for less, I have met some wonderful lifelong friends. It’s been a fun ride!
