My Top 10 Design Sites


Part of my job here at Dreamwalls is to find informative and interesting posts on glass, architecture, art and so on, so I’m lucky enough to get to spend lots of time scouring through the many design sites that are out there. I know, I know….my job is extremely difficult. Hey, someone’s got to do it! Here are the top 10 sites (in no particular order) I visit to find the very best of the best!

1. Pinterest
Anyone who has ever visited the site knows how unbelievably addictive it can be! Each time I’m on Pinterest, I find a new diy project I want to tackle, a new recipe I’d like to try, or a place I’d love to visit. Basically, it gets my creative juices flowing & keeps me coming back for more.

2. Looking At Glass
If you’re looking for glass inspiration, this is the place to be. Patricia is great at finding unique glass installations and products to share. She really has a passion for glass and it comes through in all of her interesting posts!

3. Freshome
Freshome is to architecture what Looking At Glass is to glass. There’s always something fresh and gorgeous to see on this site, and new posts are added daily. Each time I go on the site, I find a new dream home!

4. Trendir
Architecture, lighting, interior designs, unique & modern design trends….you’ll find it all on Trendir.

5. Apartment Therapy
This is another great place to find diy projects, home decorating tips, and those one-of-a-kind finds from all over the country. My favorite feature is the Good Questions section, where they have common & everyday questions/answers from readers just like me.

6. Web Urbanist
I love the “best of” and “top 10″ kind of sites. Web Urbanist always has some of the neatest (and sometimes strangest) trends, gadgets & inventions from all around, as well as art and design that will spark your curiosity.

7. Contemporist
I love looking through all of the architecture photos you find on Contemporist. It’s one of my top go-to sites for modern architecture.

8. Inhabitat
This is one of the best “green” design sites out there, and they feature architecture and designs that are innovative and focused on building a better future.

9. The Coolist
The title says it all! This site has some of the coolest finds in design, art and everyday life. I love the fact that readers can submit their finds on the site, as well!

10. Design Sponge
Design Sponge has a really beautifully designed website that offers everything from home tours to before-and-after projects sent in by their readers.

Happy viewing!
