Top Indianapolis home decor and DIY bloggers.

I've gathered a list of ten of the best home design and DIY bloggers in the Indianapolis area! I know so many of these talented bloggers personally and am happy to share them here. 

In no particular order, I give you my list of the top ten Indy area DIY and home bloggers...

1. Sincerely Sara D.

Sara's home has so many rich colors -- I find our design style to be very similar. She is so talented!:

  1. So excited to find more Hoosier bloggers!

  2. I'm an Indiana blogger too!! Indy to be exact! I don't have a design blog, but more a lifestyle blog with some DIY projects sprinkled in there! Love your blog!!

  3. Absolutely in love with that home office makeover!! I want to work there! : )


  4. Thank you sooooo much for showing off my dining room and showing off all us Indiana girls!!!! My day has been made!! xo L

  5. What a fun round-up! Sometimes it feels like the blogging world is so small:)

  6. Oohh love those craft rooms! But that master bath! Wow!!!

    I have a question...I know I saw a blog where the lady got some of the new vintage blue mason jars, and she put pink flowers in them, lined up on her dining table, and there was even a picture of her daughter by the table, and a picture she took from up above (like from their second floor loft or something). I cannot for the LIFE of me find that blog and thought maybe it would ring a bell with someone. I just saw it last week and thought I had clicked over to it form a link on one of the other blogs I frequent (like yours!) I wanted to show someone how pretty the jars and flowers were!


  7. this is so great! I just started blogging along with my etsy shop. I currently live in Florida but I used to live in Indy and my husband and I are planning on moving back next year. It's great to know there is a community of bloggers there! Thank you for sharing this! Jenee from Works of the Wild

  8. Love hearing about Local Bloggers. Glad you have a community of people to share and encourage. Just started a blog and look forward to having that sense of community as well.

  9. Me me me! (how annoying). I grew up in Noblesville, but now live and blog in Fort Wayne at ::cottage instincts:: and here's a project I did that I'm darn proud of:

    I love knowing there's tons of talent in the Hoosier state. I can think of several other Hoosier bloggers...two 'biggies' are Jen at Cottage Nest and Shannan at Flower Patch Farmgirl.

  10. I am a Hoosier also! We moved to Salem from Indy a year ago! I live seeing all of the other Hoosiers on here! Thanks for sharing.

  11. It must be so exciting to meet up with bloggers you haven't met and some you know. I have to visit some of these links, after all, I'm just "next door"!

    I've met up with bloggers when we've gone on vacations and I'm just starting to meet some in the Chicago area. It's amazing all the things in common that we have. We all seem to be at the same place in our lives and relate like old friends.

    Have fun in Utah and take lots of pics!


  12. Wow these are so inspirational, I love that dining room and who doesn't want to take a hot bath in that gorgeous master bathroom????? Absolute dream that bathroom is, all these home improver's have done amazing jobs on their rooms!

  13. I love seeing the other blogs from Indy Girls! So much talent out there -- thanks for linking us up, and for including me!

  14. saw those pretty pictures on! Julia has Indiana ties too!

    I loved this round-up, I had no idea so many Indiana blogs existed! Thanks:)

  15. Great rooms! I would steal that bathroom if I could. ;)

  19. So thrilled to be included! Have a great time at SNAP!

  20. I LOVE this post! So much crazy awesome talent from all these Hoosier ladies. Thanks so much for including me. See you at SNAP! And GO HOOSIERS!

  21. What wall color was that in that dining room

  22. My friend Maren recommended your blog to me. Love what I see so far! I'm in Indy too and I've been blogging for about nine months and I'm already in love with it.

  23. Thank you so much for sending your thoughts to Boston -- this is always such a wonderful, joyous day in Massachusetts, and we've always been proud of our Marathon. We are broken-hearted over the poor people and families who were hurt, yet so touched by the caring coming to us from all over the world. Judith Ann

  24. Any time I see my pageviews going through the roof, it's a safe bet that you're involved :) Thanks for the shout out!

    I think we should plan a get together with all these lovely Indy blogging ladies. I'm off to check out some of these new-to-me blogs right now.

  25. My friend Hayley is an Indiana blogger:

    and I'm an Indiana girl (born in Columbus) but we moved away in 7th grade. Womp womp.

  27. Fellow Indiana blogger here- out of Terre Haute (also IU grad, but I've got some Ball State love too)

  28. Wahoo! I am an Indy Blogger too!!

    Simply Designing

  29. YAY INDIANA! This totally shows that there's more than corn in Indiana. Thanks for sharing all these wonderful bloggers and come check out Redemption Boutique in Broad Ripple if you haven't already :D

  30. I love Chelsea's room! I struggle with having that finished look to my craft room because of the abundance of craft supplies I have in my space!

  31. I juggle with so many activities in my home office room. It becomes so difficult to be selective when I have to de-clutter my work zone. For instance, I hang on to every magazine that i have read. I was considering a couple of options to tidy the space and I think this home office makeover gives me some great ideas. Delegating one drawer box for holding related items makes them within reach and labeling each drawer according to its contents completely does away with the confusion.
    Beckie's craft room is also very inspiring. The DIY storage is really nice to show some display. The bright ambience that she has created in this craft room makes it a go-to space.

  32. Don't forget me!! I am a newbie blogger but long time interior designer! I am also a Ball State grad! I have followed your blog for a while now and I just read that you went to Ball State also! I followed my dreams as well, and after 5 years of working in the design industry here in Indy, I took the leap and now have my own business working from home designing for others and blogging about my clients and my own home design makeovers! Please check out my blog!
