Three blogs to follow
An interiors haven, travel and discovery (in Britain) and a wholesome food blog with slow living at its core.
If you’ve just moved to a new house, have an inkling that you would like to do something to that corner, or that wall/ceiling/room – maybe all the rooms in your home, then Grace Bonney’s website provides some serious inspiration. You will find it in the vast number of categorised house tours, tips and ideas. It’s easy to use, a visual joy and always fresh. Another arm of Design Sponge is the discussion element, podcasts on career changes, the value of creative talent and how design is changing the world. Design Sponge is intelligent, gives you an insight in to the interior tastes of homes all around the world and shows that there are some general elements inherently used to make a house a home.
All about the secret spots, coves and those little local shops that bring that sense of wonder and satisfying discovery upon finding them. This is a hub created by a team of writers and curated by Hannah and Rebecca, for those who love simple pleasures; travel, exploration and finding those new favourite havens. You can plan your adventure on the side bar by county, category or keyword. From huts, yurts and artist’s studios, to the Welsh mountains, historic houses and boutique hotels – and all those vintage shops, walled gardens and sweet coffee shops inbetween – if you love independent spirit, unique settings and the beauty of Britain, then you will find your gems.
Based in Nashville, Texas, Elizabeth Evelyn Kirby (Beth), creates stunning photography, inspired by ‘the perfection of imperfection, the sacred in the mundane and living in the present’. She likes to gather, wander, nest, make and cook. Local Milk is very wholesome and appreciative of life, wistful without losing its sense of reality. Predominantly featuring delicious recipes – banana buttermilk bread, salted chocolate lavender cupcakes and whipped honey coconut cream (so many elements) – together with seasonal style, interiors and ideas for slow living. Even her writing reads in a considered and graceful manner, so calm and hearty.
