Favourite Interior Design/Architecture Blogs
One of my favourite things to do when i have time is browse through interior design and architecture blogs.. it's like having a million virtual design magazines to leaf through.. there's a lot of good stuff out there but it can be hard to find blogs that suit your personal aesthetic or showcase the kinds of things you're looking for..

i don't tend to like too many DIY posts or a random collection of pictures of people's bathrooms from flickr... i also like the blogs that strike a good balance between showcasing real homes, restaurants, interior spaces etc and beautiful individual designs...lighting, chairs, tables, etc. you have to weed through a lot of average blogs to find the exceptional ones, imo, or the ones that speak to you..

so i thought it would be fun to start a thread where we can share the crème de la crème of interior design + architecture blogs !

One of my absolute favourites...

Blue Ant Studio
http://blueantstudio.blogspot.com/
i love all the minimalist spaces and clean, modern lines....Ahhhhh..

i also really like..

Beauty Lies in the Eye
http://beautyliesintheye.blogspot.com/
this one is a nice mix of scans from fashion + design magazines... i love the little peep into people's homes and lives.. i think the owner of the blog might also post here at tfs....not 100% sure though..

The Selby
www.theselby.com
a bit of a different take on a design blog.... i'm sure you're all familiar with the selby.. showcasing the homes and work spaces of artists, celebrities, designers, chefs, you name it ! some really cool, inspiring images here and i love his photography style..

Unhappy hipsters
http://unhappyhipsters.com
like the selby this is not strictly an interior design blog but indirectly it is ! the author takes images from Dwell and then creates hilarious captions to go with them.. i am often laughing out loud at some of these.. i just recently discovered this blog and i can't get enough of it. if you only do one thing today please read some of these...

i`ll add more as we go on... now it`s your turn!

Unhappy hipsters is very funny indeed - thanks for sharing

I follow a whole bunch of interior design blogs.. given that I'm not 100% back in pre-pregnancy shape.. it also makes a lot more sense to divert my interest in all things aesthetic to things that do not evolve dressing my person

I'm really into interior design blogs. Not so much architecture blogs...I guess because I find the former easier to relate to and more inspiring whereas the latter I just browse for the "wow" factor.

Here's some of my faves:
www.parlourhomeblog.com
www.themarionhousebook.com
www.younghouselove.com

These two are more lifestyle blogs but the posts about both blogger's homes are what catches my interest. Both have a real knack for adding just the right details to make a place complete.
