I have introduced you to all kinds of blogs of different styles, focuses and origins, but did you know that there are also several color specialized blogs? (This is not new to my blog friends – but maybe it is to the majority of my wonderful readers). And if there are more color focused blogs for me to discover – please step forward!
First up is A Perfect Gray. You might recall my post about her sunburst mirror project. Well, I have since gotten to know wonderful Donna even more and she is totally obsessed with the color gray (my kind of girl!). She constantly introduces us to the most gorgeous images and there is so much inspiration here with mostly the color gray in mind. Like myself she also used to collect antiques and she showcases a good mix of old and new. Look and drool! Donna just recently presented me with a blog award (thank you dear friend) – more about the award at the end.
Next in line is The House of Turquoise. A must read blog for everyone who needs splashes of “The color of the year” in their home. Ms. Erin finds the most amazing images that can easily convert the must have “white colors everywhere” purist to a strong believer in ocean colors. I absolutely adore her fresh blog and her design eye.
Ms. Kelly over at Color Sizzle has a very special place in my heart. She was the very first in the blog world to say “I am adding your blog to my blog roll”, when I barely knew what a blog roll was! This wonderful lady knows and likes color and her blog is the first I go to if I want a color specific answer. Kelly is also a very creative designer and puts together the most terrific table top decorations.
And finally Ms. Maria over at Colour Me Happy. This talented lady has more energy than almost anyone I know. I seriously doubt that she gets any sleep at all! Talk about color galore here! And her posts are always so informative and inspirational. (Be prepared to have your printer work overtime). She and her blog rock!
In my opinion, you do not need any design magazines anymore! Just go to any – or all – of these blogs and your color specific questions will be answered!
And with regards to the blog award given to me by lovely Donna, I would like to pass it on to 15 other fabulous & creative design blogs that so inspire & charm me (and that I have not recognized before with awards or write-ups)! No obligation (just feel loved!), but if you are up for it, you are supposed to tell your readers 7 things about yourselves that they don’t already know, and pass the blog baton to 15 other blogs. If you don’t mind, I am going to link back to things about myself here and here.
In no particular order:
2) Belle Vivir
3) Solid Frog
4) The Zhush
7) Lovely Velo
9) La Dolfina
10) L Kae Interiors
12) KMD Atelier
13) Green & Pretty
14) Vintage House Sweden
15) The Lighthouse
But as always – all my blog friends mean the world to me! I must say that there are some creative, fun, warm, talented and good hearted people (and blog friends turned blog sisters) that I follow in the US, Sweden, Canada, Italy, UK, Belgium and all the way to Australia. You are all over the top good. Simply the best!
