When roaming across the blogosphere, Brittany Makes immediately caught my attention. All it took was to read Brittany’s bio and I was sold: she’s an accountant by day and a blogger by night using Brittany Makes as her creative outlet while climbing the corporate ladder. Her goal to flex those creative muscles is a noble one and I found it very refreshing to find a blogger who leads a double life on what many would consider opposite ends of the spectrum: accounting and being artistic. Brittany’s blog is full of interior design inspiration, photos, and DIY crafts. Not only will you find an endless supply of beautiful things on her site, but her writing is hilarious.

Little Pincushion Studio

While browsing Houzz one day, I became immediately entranced after seeing the work of Annabel from Little Pincushion Studio.

Her blog consists of tons of crafty tutorials and projects. These 3 projects were especially inspiring: 1. Chair Reinvention Annabel found this vintage chair at her local Habitat for Humanity store, and after adding a little paint to it, it looks amazing! Transformations like this give me the urge to go thrift shopping, especially since the chair only cost her $10! 2. DIY Painted Clutch Inspired by “the most beautiful waxed…

Like its name would suggest, Desire to Inspire is one inspiring blog. It’s run by two women, Kim and Jo, who describe themselves as “interior design junkies” and actually met on Flickr – this age of technology we live in is pretty amazing. What makes this blog so special is the eye that these two have for design. The photos and vignettes they publish on their blog are always thought-provoking and unique. Feed your Design Cravings with these 3 Posts: Playing Favourites Jo found these gorgeous photos that were featured in an issue of Inside Out as the ‘Boerum Hill home’.

A Blog We Love: Design Thoughts

Do you have a friend whose home is crazy fabulous, but she seems to magically make it all happen for pennies on the dollar? That’s Kim Salter. Kim started her blog, Design Thoughts when she was working as an Interior Designer in New York, and a new mom to a her son Liam. Her family has since relocated to Nashville where she’s writing about the woes of personalizing a rental property with the world’s smallest closet.   Oh, What Paint Can Do! Kim’s taste is spot on, and she makes risky colors like bright chartreuse seem surprisingly easy to work with. Check out the makeover she gave to her entry way niche with just a coat of paint, and her ikea-cabinet-to-bar-cart…
