Ever since we moved to a new place last month, I’ve been on a nesting phase. The house is pretty much okay now as far as organization goes. The furniture has been arranged. We’ve already devised a cleaning schedule. We’ve been using the house “normally,” if you want to put it that way. It is a rental, so we’re limited to buying bits and bobs to decorate. I can’t wait until I can use EQ General Contractor in Charlotte to create my perfect home. We would love to be able to install a home audio system but we’ll have to speak to the landlord first! And we have decorated the place as much as we could, but there’s a two-page list of things I still want to do. These interior design YouTubers are partly to blame for that. (The other part is my sudden interest in shifting to a career in interior design, but don’t mind that.)
THE BEST INTERIOR DESIGN YOUTUBERS TO SUBSCRIBE TO
If you’ve been here before, you already know that Mr. Kate (Kate Albrecht) is my favorite interior design and DIY YouTuber. If it’s your first time here, well, yes. She’s my favorite. Her energy can be too high for me sometimes but I love how she can design based on different aesthetics. I also like that she uses a lot of thrifted pieces in her designs. (You all know how much I love thrifting of any form.)
I’ve heard of The Sorry Girls before but it was only a few weeks ago that I decided to watch them. I’m glad I didn’t wait any longer. They specialize mostly in what I’d call tumblr aesthetic but I do enjoy their DIY projects. I love that they use a lot of stuff they made themselves when they transform a room. I still haven’t tried using my dad’s drill, but I just might do it soon.
Alexandra isn’t really a YouTuber because Chatelaine is a magazine, but without being too technical about it, I guess she matches the criteria. What I like about her videos is she does basic (as in stuff that you can actually do yourself).
Elle Uy comes in a close second… actually, she might just take the top spot in my favorites. One, because she’s really good. And, two, I can actually apply the things she recommends and buy some of the pieces she mentions because she’s based in the Philippines. She’s versatile but she focuses on small spaces right now. While I don’t really plan on moving to a small space, I get a lot of space-saving and space-making tips from her videos.
