I just started following a blog by a designer in Washington.
His blog bio is front and center(!) but I really like his style and his photos are top-notch. And you have to love that his disclaimer states: "this is a non-kumbaya zone."
I think he has a great knack for mixing old and new, moderate and pricey.
What a cool rug -- he took scraps of sisal, bound them in custom grosgrain and reassembled.
