April Instagram Challenge + Guest Pinners!


If you missed the update yesterday, this month’s theme (and the blog’s in general) is not actually cats. As fun as the feline fling was, this month we’re actually focusing on all things GREEN. From the great outdoors and earth-friendly products to gardening and eco-inspired DIY projects, we’ll be sharing ideas and inspiration all month. To kick things off this month we’re dedicating April’s Instagram Challenge to GREEN RESOLUTIONS. Whether you’re hoping to cut out water bottles, drive less and bike more or just want to spend more time in your yard (or on the fire escape) cultivating a vegetable garden, we’re hoping you’ll share your goals with us on Instagram. All you need to do is: @designsponge and #DSGREEN and include your resolution IN the photo*. We’ll choose our favorites and post the three winners on Earth Day, April 22nd. They’ll receive a special package from us in the mail and hopefully we’ll all be inspired to be a little greener this season (and going forward).

*You can add your resolution by writing on the photo in a photo editing program, putting a piece of paper with the words in the photo or by using an app like Over to include the text.



In addition to our green resolutions, we’re thrilled to welcome the team from one of our favorite home & garden store, Terrain to our Pinterest page! They’ll be our guest pinners this week, rounding up beautiful garden and outdoor inspiration for anyone who needs an extra dose of green. So click here to check out their picks and all their favorite garden pins! xo, grace

    What a great idea! It’s always a good time to take inventory of what we do in our own lives to see what changes can be made — even if they’re little ones. Every bit counts.
