Staying home and watching the same old dramatic series is very bored.

Why don’t watch some interesting shows related to design - from reality shows, documentaries to movies that are exclusively available on Netflix.

I’m sharing top 5 TV shows/documentaries exclusively available on Netflix dedicated to design, art and creativity which will inspire & motivate you on these hard days.⠀

5. Interior Design Masters

Interior designers compete for a life-changing design contract and opportunity to work with a prestigious commercial client.

This is of course entertainment and competition, with slightly unrealistic time frames and budgets, but it was fascinating to see the 10 contestants working on their own designs, but within a team.

“Frank should have won ”

4. Tidying up with Marie Kondo

Author Marie Kondo offers tips on the art of keeping your home and workspace tidy and organized.

It is a realistic depiction of how to declutter your home.

“A mesmerizing show with an unlikely host”

3. Brené Brown: The Call To Courage

With over 38 million views on one of the most viewed TED talks of all time, research professor and best-selling author Dr Brené Brown presents an all-new take on courage in this hour-long Netflix original special. Brené Brown compares courage to vulnerability and gives her audience a call to take chances.

“Courage over comfort”

Struggle: The Life and Lost Art of Szukalski

This documentary chronicles the life of Polish-American artist Stanislav Szukalski (1893–1987) from his early years to his artistic and political contributions to the world. The film wrestles with questions about whether and how art can be separated from the artist.

“A very thorough documentary about a man who lived a remarkable life.”

Abstract: The Art of Design

Far and away from the winner in terms of popularity, Netflix’s Abstract: The Art of Design is the number one choice for several Shop Owners.

A look beyond blueprints and computers into the art and science of design, showcasing great designers from every discipline whose work shapes our world. Each episode is fascinating and the storytelling of design is riveting.

“Inspiration and hope to art industry”

Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things examines the many flavours of minimalism by taking the audience inside the lives of minimalists from all walks of life — families, entrepreneurs, architects, artists, journalists, scientists, and even a former Wall Street broker — all of whom are striving to live a meaningful life with less.

“How might your life be better with less?”
