A trip around the web:
1. Sabbe Interior Design Boston-based Stephanie Sabbe’s blog covers not only her work (which is lovely) but also her transition from working in an office to working at home. Where to start: Sabbe writes about attending a Herman Miller event in Boston where she was lucky enough to hear Hilda Longinotti speak (pic of Hilda above). Longinotti was George Nelson’s personal secretary for 21 years.
2.The Selvedge Yard Jon Patrick describes himself as a “a menswear product, presentation and branding guy”. His blog covers all things stylish with a definite male skew. Where to start: The post on designers posing for Playboy in 1961. Charles Eames is there, as is Nelson and Saarinen. And, no, they aren’t naked.
3. Dornob As the tag line says – this site covers “new design ideas daily”. Kurt Kohlstedt curates this jam-packed blog with an eye to the environment. He’s managed to pull together an extraordinary amount of content. Bear with the design, it’s clunky and packed with ads but the content is worth your time. Where to start: The Carapicuiba House and its amazing home office.
4. Shedworking A very serious (and therefore very amusing) look at all things to do with the shed. This UK-based site offers inspiration for Lifeworkers looking for a home office in the garden. Where to start: Developer Town’s indoor shed. Maybe we don’t need a garden?
5. The Modern House And while we’re over in the UK looking at sheds who can resist looking at houses?! I love a good real estate site and The Modern House, established in 2004, offers homes with serious architectural pedigree. Where to start: If you don’t see yourself moving to London anytime soon check out the Holiday Lets section. Villa Bandol looks rather nice.
