Have you been reading the same design blogs for forever? Are you longing for a little something new and fresh (with the exception of Apartment Therapy, of course)? Stay loyal to your long-term favorites and spice up your online life with these 10 sure-to-be-bookmarked blogs.

The Jungalow by Justina Blakeney

The Jungalow, by the author of The New Bohemians, combines riotous, refreshing design with incredibly in-depth explorations of how to solve interior challenges such as Design Dilemma: Bathroom Layout, the super-helpful How To Do Room Renderings, and discussions of what a difference small changes can make, as in Little Updates at the Jungalow (above). Widely-varied tutorials include a Moroccan-inspired stool and boho fringe chandelier, and the Learn section is full of educational posts about individual artists, makers and plants.

A Beautiful Mess by Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman

A Beautiful Mess is one of my go-to websites when I'm looking for amazing yet approachable DIYs—just look at that decoupage dresser! Whenever I'm perusing their archives in search of projects to share with you, I inevitably bookmark a few recipes such as the Butternut and Red Curry Soup or Hot Cauliflower Pizza for myself. And if you're working on your own blog, the Tips section has great features such as Should I Launch With Content? and Up Your Instagram Game E-Course!

Dabito is a jack-of-all-design-trades and the photographer behind The New Bohemians. His blog is a delightful combination of lush photos of his own home (above), fascinating home tours, design discussions such as Tweaking The Guest Bedroom, home makeovers, and political musings. The photography on OLD BRAND NEW is second-to-none, and Dabito posts at a rate of about once every four days, so there's tons of content but it's not impossible to keep up with. Dive in!
