Well that was interesting. We asked for your top three interior design blogs and between you all, you came up with over ninety different titles. We think that demonstrates just how diverse and, indeed, healthy the world of design blogs is. Now we want you to pick your favourite from the top ten nominated. Our thanks to everyone who nominated Modenus. Truly, we are blushing. We have, however, excluded ourselves from the final poll because we suspect we may have an unfair advantage. And respect to all of you who nominated your own blogs. That was mainly our American colleagues, the Brits all nominated each other. Cultural differences?
Anyway here are the top ten blogs as nominated by you, if you feel other blogs should also be considered please leave a comment below.
And in case you don’t already know them here’s links to our top ten in alphabetical order:
Enormously popular – local blogs in all sorts of places. They describe themselves as ‘Helping people make their homes more beautiful, organized and healthy by connecting them to a wealth of resources, ideas and community online.’ But are they your number one?
Strong on finding the unusual, the quirky and the down right beautiful, Jaime Derringer’s Design Milk is as fresh as anything you would ever pour on your Cornflakes. But will it get your vote?
Brooklyn-based writer, Grace Bonney. Launched Design Sponge back in 2004.Now it attracts 75,000 daily readers. The New York Times described it as a “Martha Stewart Living for the Millennials” but will you describe it as one of your top three?
Hannah Coleman is one of our favourite Brits. In fact, she is one of our favourite people. You never know what you are going to find on her blog - wall-coverings, interior products, interior design, trends, vintage, pottery, product reviews and more are there to be found. And we adore her naturally articulate written style. But will you pin her blog to your dream wall?
Founded by Micle Mihl-Cristian back in 2007 and still based in Romania. Freshome was a surprise entrant in our top ten. They are all about inspiration, but will you inspired to give them your vote?
Kitchen and Residential Design
As honest as the day is long, Paul Anater is plain spoken, frank and always entertaining. An ex designer who has become one of the industrys most sought after social media gurus. Paul covers a wide range of topics and says it how he sees it. Will he get one of your three votes?
Life of an Architect
Bob Borson is a Texas based Architect who writes about his life, his work and just about anything else that strikes him as interesting. And his judgment is clearly good because Life of an Architect was mentioned by more of you than any other blog. But will it come out top when you count your votes this time round? You decide!
This blogger describes herself as “a freshly thirty textile designer with a saucy mouth who loves inspired living and fancy things” . She also claims to be ‘cheap, lazy and easily distracted’. We happen to know otherwise as the many fans of her blog prove. Are you one of them?
Another Brit who is widely read on both sides of the pond. Maybe that’s because of her always interesting, always fresh and always origional content. Always worth spending time with, is this how you are going to spend one of your votes.
The Design Files
And one from down under, written by Melbourne set dresser and stylist Lucy Feagins, The Design Files won votes, comments and indeed, accolades from American and British contributors alike. Will she inspire you to vote for her?
The poll closes August 5, 2011, 5pm EST when we will announce your top three. Of course, if you want a sneaky peek of how they are doing just click show results!
