Holy cow. the SCOOP came in #6 on Home Rejuvenation's poll of Top 10 Most Influential Design Bloggers! Thanks so much to everyone who voted for us!!! (See HG's poll results post, here.)
We're honored to be on a list with 9 other great blogs (a couple of which I hadn't heard of before - and am now excited to check out!)... here's the full list:
1. design*sponge :: if you're not checking in on this blog pretty much daily, well, then you're missing out. Not only does Grace find the most amazing interiors, goods & artists - she also posts several times a day, so you'll never get bored.
2. NOTCOT.org :: updated constantly with submissions by both NOTCOT editors & readers alike, this blog is ripe with awesomeness.
3. decor8 :: this is one of those blogs that I simply don't check in on enough. Holly, who runs her own design firm, posts about pretty much anything inspiring & beautiful - including a lot of reader submission for DIY projects & crafts. To top it all off, the redesign of her blog is simply stunning.
4. Apartment Therapy :: with versions for 6 different cities, this is a great site for unique home accessories & amazing home tours... I'll admit, I really only read the AT Chicago version ;)
5. SWISS MISS :: Swiss-born, turned Brooklyn-ite, Tina posts about pretty much everything: design, gadgets, prints, artists, interiors, fashion... which is why I, personally, adore this blog...
6. the SCOOP :: I don't have to tell you how fabulous this blog is... you're already reading it!
7. inhabitat :: this is one I hadn't heard of before - but I'm glad to now know about it. With it's plethora of contributing writers, this blog covers innovations in technology & sustainable/eco-friendly design practices. I've already gone ahead and bookmarked this one.
8. MoCo Loco :: I'm very familiar with this site due to the fact that Jw is one of their contributors... it's an excellent site for (mostly) contemporary design and architecture, but also has regular art posts (Art MoCo)... very sophisticated stuff here.
9. desire to inspire :: an Australian and a Canadian trying to inspire the world one room at a time. MidCenturyJo and Kim give us a peek into the most beautiful interiors around. This is serious eye candy for those of us who love interior design.
10. Oh Joy! :: the blog of designer-extraordinaire, Joy Deangdeelert Cho - this is another that has a little-bit-of-everything - it's also great to keep tabs on Joy's own design work & amazing paper goods, Nantaka Joy!
If any of these are new to you, I urge you to check them out! Or if you're a regular visitor to some or all of these - keep reading! I know we all appreciate it, and we're doing it for you!
