Howdy, everyone! This is (the other!) Sara. I’m thrilled to be the newest member of The HabCo team, and even more thrilled that I’ll be contributing tonnes of delicious stuff to the site! If like us, you live and breathe interior design and haven’t discovered these YouTube channels yet, today is your lucky day!
There is a wealth of inspiration available online, and Pinterest is my go-to, but nothing beats being able to see other designers work their magic and understand their processes. Today, I’m going to share our Top Ten Favorite YouTube Channels for Interior Design.
1. Studio McGee
Shea and Syd Mcgee founded Studio McGee in Utah. Their online series are relatively new to the YouTube world, but they are so well-crafted that I guarantee you will become addicted and want to watch the same episodes again and over. They offer design advice and home visits that showcase their own approach. If you follow them on Instagram, you’ll understand what I’m talking about.
2. House and Residence
House and Home is a Canadian interior design brand and publication. It’s reassuring to notice the designer’s Canadian influence throughout their work. The home tours are addicting to watch due to the fact that each one is unique to the designer. I have yet to come across a design reveal on this site that I dislike!
3. Renovations to Three Birds
Three Birds Renovations was founded by three Australian mothers who left corporate jobs to restore and resell homes. They’re amusing to watch, and I adore how their homes are always colourful, cheerful, and infused with the quintessential Aussie laid-back atmosphere.
4. Emily Henderson
As one of our favourite designers, it’s unsurprising that her YouTube channel made this list! Her channel is filled with “how-to” videos, room makeovers, and a wealth of valuable home style tips.
5. Apartment Counseling
Apartment Therapy’s YouTube channel contains on-trend do-it-yourself home décor projects as well as home tours of some of the world’s most fashionable residences.
6. Mr. Kate
There isn’t much to say about Mr. Kate except that she is both entertaining and inventive! She creates incredible spaces and is a queen of do-it-yourself. Her “OMG We’re Coming Over” series on her channel is one of my favourites to watch since she decorates rooms for other well-known YouTubers, each with their own distinct style. You will become addicted, I guarantee.
7. Jenna Sue
Jenna Sue recently completed a flip of an old mountain cabin and filmed the entire process on YouTube. Her style is completely unique and reminds me of a more feminine version of the homes designed by Joanna Gaines. She DIYed the majority of the work in the cottage and filmed herself doing each one. The before and after photos are great!
8. Karin Bohn
If you’re interested in starting your own interior design firm, Karin Bohn’s channel will quickly become a favourite. She delves into the ups and downs of owning a business and invites you to accompany her on her day-to-day journey as a busy entrepreneur. She recently launched a new series on her channel called “Bohnafide,” which chronicles her own home remodelling.
If you’re a fan of interior design, HGTV is already an addicting channel, but its YouTube account has even more exciting content to watch. They have a tonne of do-it-yourself projects and behind-the-scenes access to the designers featured on their television shows (hello, Joanna Gaines!).
There are other videos on the Houzz channel, but my favourite is the “My Houzz” series, in which celebrities (including Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and even Ludacris!) redecorate rooms in a friend or family member’s home using designers they discovered on Houzz.
