Late Wednesday Link Love: Design Blogs

8 Nov

Book Headboard

Oops, this is a day late. I’ve haven’t been sleeping on the job (in the bed above from Design Every Day) but I wanted to make sure you all saw my post about Alex Nagle and the work he is doing for The Wayside Chapel.

But now it’s back to business and share my favourite design blogs. There are loads out there and for my money, they are the best designed blogs around. No surprises there.

Yellowtrace is my favourite design blog, by Sydneysider Dana Tomic. I had the pleasure of interviewing Dana a few years back and it was great to hear how Yellowtrace had developed in leaps and bounds quickly over the previous six months. A trained and practising interior designer, Dana has a knack of finding design curiosities and beautiful interiors.

The Design Files has been around for a while now and markets itself as Australia’s most popular design blog. Lucy Feagins explores the homes of creative people, which I love, features products I mostly describe as whimsical (ugh, hate that word!) and now seems to be bridging across into art as well.

Design*Sponge is a product and DIY heavy site featuring some awesome little gems, like the Gilded Terracotta Pots, my next home project!

Pinterest. If you aren’t on it, I would almost suggest not signing up as it is such a beautiful time sucker you may possibly become addicted. It’s like having beautiful things delivered to your eyes every day. Bliss.

Desire to Inspire is the work of Kim from Ottawa, Canada and Jo from Brisbane, Australia. They have never met, but found each other via Flickr. I loved their spread of writer Nikki Gemmel’s home, especially her left-handed chair! Love it!

Anna Spiro runs both her blog Absolutely Beautiful Things and Brisbane design store Black & Spiro. I particularly love her appreciation of patterned fabric.

I like interiors that aren’t perfect and Gild and Grace seems to feature spaces that I think, ooh I’d live in that room.

Tina Roth Eisenberg, runs Swiss Miss blog and design studio from New York. Quirky, political and great design.
