Laurence Carr, www.laurencecarr.com
Laurence is my kinda gal – She understands that how you feel in your home environment takes priority when it comes to design. Look good, feel good – that’s how I feel when I peruse her blog, which offers some great sustainability tips and offers insights into exclusive interior design industry events.
Tim Green, www.timgreendesigns.com
Tim Green is all Atlanta glam, all day long! His style is fresh and sparkling with a dash of Southern charm. His blog is a great place to find modern design quick-tips to update your home and it’s an excellent resource focused specifically on the Atlanta metro area.
Donna Mancini, www.donnamanciniinteriorsandflooring.com
Located in Northeast Florida, Donna boasts a full service interior design firm as well as a retail space. And you all know how much I love the Florida coast! I love all of her blogs featuring that signature coastal style.
Sara Noble, www.saranobledesigns.com
Talk about a tastemaker! Located in Kansas City, Sara Noble brings her timeless elegance to the midwest. Her blog provides glimpses into everything that inspires her designs – interviews with her favorite artists and bloggers. It’s a great place to get inside the mind of a designer.
Amy Mitchell, www.homeglowdesign.com
Amy Mitchell is laser focused on transforming your new home into your forever home. Her focus on longevity is inspiring! Her Saturday Blog is full of reflective musings and focused on realistic design solutions. She also gets into the weeds with lots of design details.
Rachel Moriarty, www.rachelminteriors.com
Rachel’s presence at design events is hard to miss: her radiant style lights up the room when she walks in. She’s a renaissance woman of sorts: podcasting, authoring, designing, home staging- She does it all! On her blog you’ll get lots of peeks behind the scenes. I love seeing how she’s out and about, living and breathing her brand everywhere she goes.
Lisa Peck, www.liluinteriors.com
One of the best parts about the LiLu design blog is the showcasing of works-in-progress. So often designers are hesitant to let anyone peek behind the curtain, preferring to only show an impressive final reveal. It’s so refreshing to see another designer bold enough to share progress shots and, truthfully, it makes the final reveal all the more impressive!
Deborah von Donop, www.dvdinteriordesign.com
Located in Greenwich, Connecticut, Deborah designs lots of those beautiful east coast homes, especially kitchens, that make me nostalgic about my east coast roots! Her blog has some really helpful instructional videos and design shopping guides.
Lori Dennis, www.loridennis.com
And that’s me! 😉 You’ve made it this far on the page, you know what my blog is all about. Looking forward to seeing you on the tour. Stay tuned because I’ll be coming back at you with updates on the tour and what you can expect to see from all of the influencers above!
