If My Blog Was A Room - Next Up - My Design Ethos


Happy weekend and welcome to the series If My Blog Was A Room... where I pose the challenge to think of your blog as an actual space. What would that space look like? I am so excited to have Anna here, from her decor blog My Design Ethos. I have followed Anna's blog for a while and love to see what she's up to with her home renovations and client projects. She lives in Australia and I love that blogging can form friendships from anywhere in the world! Without further adieu, here's what Anna came up with-

Just like everyone else I love reading Amber’s ‘If my blog was a room…’ series. So I was very excited to be involved! I’m Anna by the way, and blog over at My Design Ethos. I’m an online interior designer so my blog serves as an ongoing inspiration source for my client’s projects, as well as my own house. So, as you can see my header is fairly simple…



Because I use my blog as a place to record my inspiration for clients, the styles I post about range from minimalist to bohemian and everything in between. But, it’s also a reflection of my own personal style… a little modern, a little traditional, a little formal, a little casual with some interesting art and patterned fabrics.

As you arrive it would need a lovely entry with aqua wallpaper, and a touch of grey accents. Maybe something like this?

Found at the Lennoxx.

But modernised, with some pieces like this…

Found on Pinterestvia The Girls of Lincoln Park.

Once we’ve met I’d bring you into a living space. In an aqua room my style might look a little something like this…

I always want my blog to reflect lots of styles, and a comfortable place to discuss those styles. So it would need a cosy room, with lots of light, bookshelves for all those design books and blogs, and a pretty chair to discuss everything with a cup of tea (or wine, let’s be honest!). Of course, a little neutral pattern layering and gorgeous gallery wall would never go astray either…

My blog is never moody, but sometimes the interiors can be just a little bit touchy…
Found at BDG Style.


Of course, if you follow ‘my design ethos’ long enough you will hear about my never-ending house renovation and future dreams for my own home. Thus, there is always a lot of navy, mustard yellow and grey floating around my blog as well.

While all these formal spaces are great for a glass of wine, I am an Aussie, so after our chat we would have to move somewhere out the back which is casual and comfy, where we can sit in our wet togs after a swim and have a cold drink. Somewhere like this…

Well thanks for having me Amber! I hope you all love my ‘blog room’, but make sure you drop around so we can chat about all the other fabulous interior styles I love as well!

Thanks so much for being here, Anna! I love everything about the foyer in the second image and the bold use of color and pattern in every space! (And thanks to Anna for her patience, as we worked out some kinks with google and formatting this week!)

Definitely stop by Anna's blog and say hello!

I love the large mirror and the use of aqua in a space. And I love the mix of styles and elements to make it more inviting. Great post, Anna!
