When we need inspiration for great interiors and DIY projects we often head over to Design*Sponge
, the brain child of Brooklyn-based Grace Bonney. Her site explores handmade products, charming and beautiful interiors, and showcases awesome "before and after"
furniture renovations. When we heard Grace and her team of editors were putting together a print version of their website, we immediately pre-ordered our copy. The book, Design*Sponge at Home
, came out in October, and Grace has been traveling the country to promote the tome and host fun craft nights and events, which seem like a lot more fun than the traditional book signing. Inside, you can pore over pages and pages of "sneak peaks"
at designers' work from around the world, there's a ton of tips and tricks about furniture renovations, and enough DIY projects
to keep you busy through next summer. Grace graciously took a few minutes out of her busy tour schedule and gave us some insight into her thoughts on green interiors, all things handmade, and her favorite designers and shops right now.
