Curbly House 2017 Dining Room

Curbly was founded in 2006 with a simple yet wonderful idea: that everyone deserves to have a beautiful and functional home that reflects their personal style. As a home design and DIY platform, the Curbly team is dedicated to providing a place where people can find inspiration, share ideas, and connect with others who share their passion for design.

From the beginning, Curbly has been about empowering people to create the homes they want, regardless of their budget or experience level. With a team of expert contributors and a community of dedicated readers, Curbly has become a go-to destination for all things home design, offering a wealth of resources, tutorials, and advice to help people transform their living spaces.

Curbly is built on the belief that good design has the power to change lives, and that everyone deserves to live in a space that makes them happy. Whether you’re a seasoned designer or just starting out, we invite you to join our community and discover the endless possibilities of your home.
