My Favorite Blogs of 2013

In 2013, I got pretty obsessed with checking design blogs. My New Years Resolution should probably be to limit the amount of times I check them in a day. But that will never happen so my real resolution is to fine tune my morning routine. Make my bed, take at least ten minutes to apply some makeup and choose a nice outfit each day and leave for work on time. Simple stuff!

 Here are my top picks for blogs that I can't get enough of...

A Beautiful Mess //  Frequent posts with creative content and beautiful photography. They make every project seem so fun and easy but I know the truth! This is back-breaking work. But who can resist the idea that we can create a beautiful life? Obviously, I cannot. 

Favorite Post There is one project that I fully intend to do one day, and it is to make this hand painted clementine accent wall. I wanted to do it in the hallway but my brother said no. #partypooper

Style by Emily Henderson // She has influenced my style the most this year.  The thing that got me hooked: Emily is obsessed with eccentric vintage touches and loves thrift shopping. I also really enjoyed watching her show Secrets from A Stylist. 

Favorite Post: The Kurbly House sunroom makeover. If there was one room I would copy to a T it would be this one! The amazing thing is the table is from IKEA. I also loved her tips on succeeding at a design internship. I definitely used some of her tips when I was getting my sea legs at Idea Couture. 

Little Green Notebook // I really like Jenny Komeda. She's an interior designer who writes for Domino and does the most incredible vintage furniture makeovers.

Favorite Post: The concrete credenza post. I'm not in LOVE with the piece itself, but I found it so interesting to see the materials she worked with and how she customized the credenza to suit her personal style. 

Apartment Therapy // New content every day and I love me a good house tour. They also have tons of food and cocktail content on their sister site The Kitchn.

Favorite Post: I featured one of the home tours on this blog HERE

Design Sponge// This site is similar to Apartment Therapy but I find the articles more carefully curated and personal.

Favorite post: I wrote about the home of Bev Hisey on the blog. You can read my post HERE

Decor8 Blog // Where Pinterest came to life in a blog. Holly Beckers talent is corralling inspiring images from the internet into her carefully curated posts. She is also an interior designer and has that bright and cheery sense of style (and personality) that I adore so much!

Favorite Post: Anything from her color inspiration category
