Submissions + General Inquiries:

Design*Sponge welcomes submissions in the following categories only: original home/studio tours, before & after makeovers, books/publications and recipes. We no longer cover events, weddings or new products/artwork.

We focus on fresh, original content. As such, priority is given to stories that have not yet been covered online. Please indicate if your submission has already appeared online or been submitted elsewhere.

*Please note:

  • Design*Sponge does not accept free samples, products or compensation for editorial coverage
  • Design*Sponge does not offer paid editorial coverage. Please do not send requests for paid post-rates as we do not offer them. (Please do call these requests “collaboration”- they are not.)
  • Design*Sponge does not accept guest posts or guest-written content
  • Design*Sponge does not grant permission for FREE reprints or publication of our content in any form, unless it is part of a story on our website. Requests for free imagery and story reprints from our websites will not receive a response.
