    One of my favourite things to do when i have time is browse through interior design and architecture blogs..:heart: 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...:innocent: 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 ! :woot:

    One of my absolute favourites...

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

    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... :lol:

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

    Unhappy hipsters is very funny indeed - thanks for sharing :heart:

    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 :lol:

    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.
