Happy Thursday folks! And welcome back to another round of our fab blogger series. If you enjoyed last week’s design advice and inspiration, then you are going to love today’s feature blogger. We’re going to be checking out Driven by Decor, in addition to the lovely Kris, founder and avid DIYer.

Last week we took a peek at Marcus Design, while today we’ll be focusing our attention on Kris, who run the popular and swoon-worthy blog Driven by Decor DBD). If your interior is looking a little lacklustre, or you are in need of some domestic inspiration, we’ve got you covered! Driven by Decor is filled with a host of wonderful DIY projects, before and after reveals and some truly fab ideas. Interested? If you’d like to learn more about our feature blogger, read on below!

With a passion for everything design oriented, Kris boasts a wide range of talents and her blog presents a wonderfully curated collection of neat DIY projects and impressive renovations. In addition to design and home decor, Kris also loves travel, family, her rescue pup, coffee and much, much more. These passions provide a stable set of inspirational ideas, and a basis for each one of her designs.

Tour the Jarrett’s house

One thing we love to see from our feature bloggers is their own house or apartment. Their private residence is definitely an indication of individual style and decor preferences, so it’s often a great place to start when getting to know a blogger.

Kris’s house is definitely no disappointment! Replete with a range of impressive interior fittings and fixtures, the rooms are a stunning testament to her ingenuity and vision. We love the master bedroom, which is particularly sumptuous, while still sophisticated and elegant. Easily separated into different categories, you can check out each room here.

Along with plenty of inspirational interior design, Kris also shows us how we can create stylish pieces of furniture for our home. Not simply your average home projects, these are remarkably created items that are sure to impress.

Boasting step-by-step instructions, we took a particular interest in this pinboard-cum-inspiration wall, which is shabby chic and unbelievably easy to create.

Would you like to make one for your own home? Get the guide here.

Room reveals and impressive before and afters

Is there anything better than a satisfying before and after project done right? We certainly don’t think so, and spend our time seeking out some of the best. So when we checked out Driven by Decor’s striking room reveal, we were certainly impressed.

Each before and after has been photographed to show the progress and transformation of the space, while the final photos are striking and awe inspiring.

Staying up to date

Anyone else not ready for the weekend to end? Hope and I enjoyed some long overdue couch time – I can't tell you how much I loved being able to relax and enjoy our newly madeover family room rather than be working on it! And for those of you who asked about sweet Hope and her diapered bum, she's doing much better this weekend and had normal biopsy results – so thankful for that! You can hop on over and check out our new room and see all of the "before" and "after" pics by simply clicking here @drivenbydecor and then the link in my profile – it includes a complete source list at the end of the post with links to goodies such as my fabulous confetti pillow by @arianna_belle and shelf accessories from @jossandmain, @charishco, and @homegoods. Have a nice night everyone! 💕🐶

As is customary for our feature segment, we tend to check out how we can stay up to date with our bloggers. Instagram is definitely the preferred method for many, as it offers regular visual updates and allows us to stay in contact with our favourites. Driven by Decor boasts a wonderful collection of daily interior inspo, and gorgeous ideas from other Instagrammers. Ready to check it out? Head over here and see if you can find some ideas for your own home today.
