The Open House Project 2013

Last year I was in awe of the amazing pop-up shop that Lucy and her team from The Design Files created in Melbourne. This year they put together not one but two shows, first in Melbourne and then two weeks later in Sydney! I can’t get over how much work and incredible design goes into…

Birdbnb

I love that some of sweetest and most creative projects happen this time of year. From meaningful charities to beautiful pop-up art installations and shops, people seem to really open their hearts and minds around the holiday season. One of my favorite art-related surprises this season was Birdbnb. Airbnb decided to hire a wide range…

Chi Chi Sydney

It’s blustery and gray in Brooklyn today, so I’m trying to take a little mental vacation somewhere warm and colorful. In my online search for something visually uplifting, I came across this fantastic new restaurant that totally fits the bill. Chi Chi is an Asian bar and restaurant in the southwestern suburbs of Sydney, Australia,…

The Open House Project

I thought it would be great to kick off 2013 with a project that’s been inspiring me for weeks now. Lucy at The Design Files runs one of the best design blogs around, hands down. I’ve been following her writing and the way she’s developed her site with absolute devotion, and I’m consistently impressed with…

la petite headquarters

I love seeing how small spaces can be transformed into beautiful new homes for businesses. I was completely overwhelmed when trying to decorate our first-ever D*S office this spring, so I’m majorly jealous of the team at La Petite, an online kids’ magazine, who got to work with designer Kirsten Grove on their new space….

panther coffee

When I started Design*Sponge, I used to note that I always felt like the weird girl in the room commenting on the couch in a movie rather than the plot. That feeling has stayed with me and hits me hard when I’m watching TV. The other night I was watching something on demand, so the…

front door sneak peek

We’ve been working on our new D*S office for weeks, and if we’ve learned anything so far, it’s that everything in a big space (relative to our apartments) takes forever to finish. We’re up to our ears in all types of paints, rugs and lighting, and we’ve been slowly making headway over the past few days…

glen grassi’s micro-home

I love micro-homes. Mainly because living in NYC for almost 10 years has made me terrified to live in a “normal” sized suburban home. I don’t know what I’d do with all that space; I’m used to cramming everything into less than 1,000 square feet. But these mini-homes look like a great way to see…
