Today I thought I’d share with you some of the online resources that I follow on a regular basis and that fuel my creativity.
1. Bright Bazaar: Will, aka Mr Bazaar, is as he describes himself a young guy from the UK who thinks the color beige is boring. Guess I got hooked just on this tag line. Will blogs daily beautiful pictures featuring interiors, fabrics, furniture, stores, table settings and much more. His pictures are beautiful, colorful and I love the way most of them are labelled. A pleasure for the eyes!
2. Little Greene Notebook is Jenny Komenda’s blog. She is a New York based decorator who blogs about her daily projects, and let me tell you this: she is absolutely unstoppable and has an incredible energy. She carries out most of those projects herself and usually shares all the steps on her blog. After reading a few articles you’ll feel like starting to turn you home upside down!
3. Patrick Baty is a british historic paint consultant and the man behind Papers and Paints. As such he has worked on numerous historic buildings in the UK and in the USA analyzing paint fragments and their composition to determine the original colors used. He has created historical paint ranges for Papers and Paints, The Little Greene and Ressources. On his blog he shares some of the projects he has been working on and I was fascinated by his work who combines decoration, science and history. Check out this post to start with!
4. Caitlin Wilson is an interior designer currently residing in Philadelphia after having spent some time as an expat in Hong Kong and Dubai. In her blog she shares her designs but also quite a bit of her personal life with her husband and kids. She creates interiors mixing classic features with colorful bold patterns and has created her own range of fabrics: Caitlin Wilson Textiles
5. Colourlovers: The name says it all. The site aims to establish a creative community for all color lovers. It allows to create color palettes, patterns and to browse and download the millions that have already been created by its users. It discusses trends and design in various creative industries through its blog and forums.
6. Beast Pieces is the blog of the Minneapolis based letterpress studio, Studio on Fire. Since discovering letterpress and its beauty online a couple of years ago I have been following a few letterpress studios and their blogs. Studio on Fire has really struck me with their consistently outstanding work. Their design work is simply a notch better than anything else you have seen.
I hope you enjoy discovering those and I would love to hear from you which sites/blogs you like to read for inspiration. Have a lovely day!
