1. In Their Home // Maria Emb


    Maria, the engineering student/blogger of Maria Emb showcases sneak peeks from inside her home as well as food photography and other interior design inspiration. Her blog has become one of my favorites because she is constantly pumping out original content, and did I mention her design sense is amazing. Her home looks warm and cozy, but keeps simplicity at its core. Every item in the space works well with one another and the color palette or each room is one I envy. I’d also die for her stoneware collection!

    Please stop by HER BLOG and jump from one post to the next. I know you won’t be disappointed!

  5. Line Klein’s Interiors


    Danish photographer Line Klein (view online portfolio) started out as a portrait and food photographer. Today she spends the majority of there time snapping photos of interior spaces and still life. Line’s work has been popping up in my life here and there, but I never knew she had a blog until just recently. Go explore her little space of the internet.

  6. recreate it / 01


    Hi guys! I’m excited to announce a new design collaboration happening here every Wednesday with Bre of MOXEE. The two of us have really “hit it off” in the terms of designer-to-designer relationships, and we felt like it would be fun to share some design insights with you. We could go on and on about what typefaces we drool over or what design websites keep us glued for hours, but that would only bore you over time. Instead, every Wednesday we are going to share 2 Recreate It posts (one here on my blog and one over on her blog) that will hopefully help you translate those pretty magazines spreads you see into something more tangible. Hey! You may even get some new blog post layout ideas from it. Hope you enjoy this new feature as much as the both of us. Cheers!

  8. In Their Home // Le Dans La


    La Dans La is a magical blog full of childhood whimsy and scenes from every day happenings. Written by a stylist and mama, La Dans La is daily showcase of all things stylish. The rooms are organized and put together with simplistic details. Even this family’s wardrobe sends jealously running through my bones. Love everything about this blog and have spent way too many hours flipping through the archives, slowly watching the children grow up.

    Stop by her blog to learn/see more or visit her shop.
