GREAT READS: A Year-End Blog Tour Part III

by - Wednesday, December 29, 2010

This week, I'll be introducing you to some of my most favourite bloggers. I've asked them to tell you a bit about their blog and provide a link to their favourite post they've written in the past year.


(click on the blog headers or links to hop over to the blogs)




About the blog:Little Green Notebook is a daily design journal where I post about what's on my mind, whether that has to do with something I'm working on with a decorating client, or a project in my own home, or just something I spied in a store or online that I'm loving. I like to try and be budget-conscious and find ways to get an expensive look for a lot less.
My favourite post:
Last summer, I was home visiting my family in Arizona and basically on a whim, we decided to redecorate my parents’ bedroom. It was such a FUN couple of days working with my mom and dad and sister to brainstorm projects, shop, paint and sew. It was a major collaborative effort and it made me wish I lived nearby so we could open a design studio together. :)

My favourite post:
This post featured one of my favorite homes from last year... http://alifesdesign.blogspot.com/2010/05/just-to-swoon.html



About the blog:
My blog the cinnamon post is for me, a place to be creative, to write and photograph my life as I see it now and to capture moments I will want to remember. I hope others see my blog as somewhat of a magazine editorial; one not styled to be perfect but the kind where the homeowners pad around the house in bare feet and the toys don’t always get picked up.
My favourite post:
We Travel At Home

About the blog:
Thanks for inviting me to participate in your "Great Reads: A year-end blog tour", Jennifer! The focus of my blog, Isabella & Max Rooms, is to follow the process of transforming a room, sharing tips, resources and tutorials for the DIY projects included in the room design.
My favourite post:
My favorite post from 2010 is the 'Big Boy's Bedroom ~ Complete' post, showing the final result of redesigning my son Max's bedroom. This room was put together on a tight budget, with many DIY projects contributing to the design. It was also very exciting to be invited to tape a segment with Nate Berkus, sharing two projects that went into this room: how to make a chalkboard lamp and how to cover a lampshade with fabric.

About the blog:
I’ve been a practicing Interior Designer for 17 years, I started the blog as my personal journal about current client projects and all the things that inspire me and challenge me in my day to day work. Along the way I share my design philosophy, great finds, savvy tips, some before and afters, and practical advice for home renovation and decor enthusiasts.
My favourite post:
So Impossible to pick one! Without a doubt the favorite reader post this year was the one on “Painting Ikea Cabinets” and then a post with After pics of an E-Design Bathroom was a close second. But my personal favorite(s) was a series of posts from my East Coast Road Trip, this past summer (gee, I wish someone had told me I spelled “Coast” wrong in every single heading of the series!!). It was rejuvenating to spend time away from client work and indulge in my love of photography, travel (exploring) and food!
