Working in the design industry, I’m exposed to many talented individuals whether it is another designer, a blogger, an artist, or an architect. I admire their work as artist everyday and thought I would share with you a few of my favorite design blogs. What better way to start off the new year than with a few blogs that will inspire you! coco+kelley, design sponge, and la dolce vita are just a few you should know about…
coco+kelley is an amazing design blog that I have followed for quite some time now. With a wide range of subjects regarding the interior design and fashion industry, along with her working knowledge of interior design, editor Cassandra LaValle is someone you want to follow! coco+kelley post about subjects such as new furniture and material finds, inspiring interiors, fashion, color palettes and entertaining. They often put together a collection of furniture pieces, colors and materials,like the one below from their blog.
The blog often incorporates fashion design with interior design. I love seeing how fashion relates to interior design and the blog coco+kelley does a wonderful job at showing their relation!
I look forward to the new year of interior design and what coco+kelley has to share with all of us! If you want to start following coco+kelley I have provided a link to their blog here for you! http://cocokelley.blogspot.com
Design Sponge is another amazing design blog that I always look forward to reading. Founder of Design Sponge, Grace Bonney, has been praised by Martha Stewart and has worked on all sorts of projects within the design industry from The Nate Berkus Show to writing for the New York Times. I love that this blog has the knowledge of the design world in its backing. The blog is seperated in different subjects; spaces, places, before+after, diy, entertaining, products, columns, videos and biz ladies. I can literally spend hours on this site browsing all of the different subjects and things they have to talk about! Another great feauture is that once you have clicked on a subject, they give you all sorts of ways to narrow down your search if you are looking for something specific. Under the tab ‘spaces’ you can scroll through tons of posts about different interiors, who they belong to, design inspirtaion, where they are and much more. Check out the ‘sneak peak’ below of an adorable apartment located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. For more info on this apartment, take a look at their blog at http://www.designsponge.com / This blog is one of a kind and I highly encourage you to check it out if you have not already!!
La Dolca Vita is another top design blog that I follow. Founder and editor, Paloma Contreras, blogs about travel, interior design, fashion and people. As you scroll through the blog you get all kinds of information and beautiful photographs about these subjects. I love this blog because it spends time in the details and design is all with details. This blog feautures a room and they cover all the details you would imagine, including the linen headboard to the detail on the vanity chair.
Another reason I love following this blog, is that their subjects are so different from one other. One day they post about a room design and the next they are talking about how to wear stripes and the different looks you can achieve in your wardrobe!
La Dolce Vita really uses great photography to grasp your attention and you can really see the different subjects vividly. I love to scroll through the blog and randomly get an image with a positive quote like this one…You wont leave this blog feeling dissapointed, gaurenteed!
