BlogRoll: Design Sponge

By Diana Campeggio
September 19, 2011

Let’s start by saying, every person who is interested in D.I.Y. (do-it-yourself), should follow Design Sponge.  For me, it is an encyclopedia of information about anything and everything that is cute and hip.  Her blog makes it hip to be crafty at home.

This blog, run by Grace Bonney, encompasses everything that any self-proclaimed D.I.Y.-er needs to be inspired and educated. Everything from home décor, craft projects, travel and product guides give this site the content that continues to feel fresh and interesting even seven years later.

It is apparent by the quality of the content that Bonney produces that she has a fantastic staff of writers that love what they do.  Her site is a refuge for creative-junkies like myself, who are always looking for inspiration and ideas.

For me, the most favored part of Design Sponge is the actual before and afters and D.I.Y. projects that she is always posting.  Each week, she continues to post great step-by-steps for some great, easy projects to create in your own home.  The before and after section is a perfect way to gain some well-needed inspiration for transforming all that old furniture and knick-knacks that have been lying around your life for the past 10 years.

One of the most looked-forward to sections of Design Sponge has to be her Sneak Peak section.  Once a week, Bonney publishes several posts that look into the homes of some of the most creative people around.  These posts, rich with interesting photos and narrations, give a sneak peak into how artists, designers, stylists, etc. decorate their homes.

Bonney, who bases Design Sponge out of Brooklyn, N.Y., not only runs a coherent, beautifully designed blog but has also released a “Design Sponge at Home” design book that encompasses her blog to a tee, including some of her most favored columns.   The Design Sponge book tour and signing will be in Philadelphia on Dec. 1.
