Welcome To Decor Home Ideas

Helping YOU create the home you’ve always wanted

Hi, I’m Ivo. I started Decor Home Ideas in 2013 as a way to share my love of creating things. More than ten years and hundreds of posts later, it’s become more than I could have ever imagined.

In that time, this site has gone from a passion project to a full-time dream job, as well as a way to use my 20+ years of experience in home decor to connect with a growing community of decor fans and DIYers.

Here, you’ll find my handpicked collection of the very best home and garden projects that can transform your living space, simply and affordably.

With each post, my goal is to inspire you with ideas and possibilities and show you the practical steps to make it happen. I’m glad you’re here and excited to help you create the home you’ve always wanted.

What Matters Most Here

Our mission is to be an online touchstone of home decor and DIY knowledge, providing daily advice and inspiration to an engaged community of self-starters and anyone with a passion for home design and decor, architecture, luxury homes, lifestyle, and creativity.

Here are some of the core values that guide us in that mission.

A sustainable, eco-friendly approach

Our very favorite projects involve reworking and reimagining stuff you already have. This upcycling approach saves money, saves time, and saves perfectly good items from the landfill.

Finding the beauty in simplicity

Sometimes the best things are the simplest. Like garden bed edging made from wood sticks. Or a wreath made of clothespins. That’s why we skip the pricey trends and focus on the simple but beautiful things that stand the test of time.

Focusing on fresh and original ideas

We’re always on the hunt for new and creative ways to improve your home, steering clear of anything boring, blah, or been-there, done-that.

Our incredible audience

From the projects we pick to the design of the site, our user experience is always top of mind. When you’re here, we want you to have fun and get inspired!

My Story

Decor Home Ideas started back in 2013, with a literal “light bulb moment” of inspiration.

By day, I was working as an electrical engineer in my father’s company, designing decorative lighting projects and creating unique lighting fixtures, working with small factories to manufacture them. By night, I was learning everything I could about home decor, landscaping, garden design, and architecture.

Then, it hit me. I shouldn’t be keeping all of this expertise and energy to myself. And since blogs and social media were growing in popularity, I had an easy way to start sharing and connecting with people who were just as passionate as I was about homes and gardens. So I started posting about my DIY projects, curating cool ideas from other blogs, sharing my POV about design and decor, and building my online brand.

I chose the name Decor Home Ideas as a play on the popular phrase “home decor ideas.” It reflects the entire vision behind the site: taking something familiar and putting a creative and memorable twist on it.
