There are very few decorating blogs out there that actually encourage you to express yourself.
Using materials on hand -- or what you can rustle up inexpensively.
Emily of Jones Design Company is one of them, which I happened on thanks to another easy decorator, The Nester.
Jones Design Company has an easygoing flair that's a cool breeze in a land of snootiness and big bucks. Take a look at her easy way to make a sign; I loved her hand-painted 'wallpaper,' as well. (Would I have the patience to do that? Not sure...but it's beautiful.)
Take a look; I'm sure you'll be inspired, too.
