Design Blogs We Like to Read
Better After- This blog is a great way to lose an hour or two. Every post is a different before and after detail of a project sure to satisfy your DIY desires.
Design Sponge- This is where we go to see what’s trending and what’s happening in design and craft. The good folks at design sponge really seem to love clean mixtures of pattern and texture, and extremely curated interior schematics.
Ikea Hackers- Gone are the days of lamenting the urban combination of empty pockets and the same Ikea furniture in every other city apartment. This blog is filled with clever repurposing and redesign ideas for the stuff you bought at IKEA.
Inhabitat- This is a blog dedicated to the point at which good design, and ecologically sound choices meet.
MoCo Loco- Here is a blog with the freshest of fresh ideas in high-design. Even the design of the site is fresh and new with a side scrolling layout. I think the layout might be why I keep going back.
Swiss Miss- This Brooklyn based designer has a flair for fresh and playful cleanly designed things.
People Who Design Stuff We Like
Kevin Adams-Kevin is a genius broadway lighting designer. He uses an amazing combination of fluorescent and incandescent lighting and creates designs that integrate into the fabric of a play seamlessly.
Jonathan Adler- An interior designer that really loves color. I love him because he challenges me to press the bounds of my own aesthetic sense.

Haus of Gaga- We love the way Gaga presents herself, and her team constantly outs out things we think are amazing!
Paul Smith- Love the stripes!!! He’s on our feet and soon our sofa too! We love the stripes sooo much!
