The internet is an amazing resource when it comes to home décor and interior design. Don’t get us wrong, we love Pinterest and Instagram but (and we may be a bit biased here), we are partial to blogs for their ability to showcase in-depth information. Who doesn’t like learning something new?  


Not only do we love blogs, but we love our fellow New England bloggers talking about all things design. There are so many to choose from, but here are a few of our favorites.


Check them out and get inspired!
