IDS and Blogland

The Interior Design Show has always featured the newest technology in home and design so this year it's great that they're adding to their tech-saavy with a Saturday talk about the world of design blogging.

On Saturday at 4 pm on the main stage, Mark Challen of House & Home Media will be moderating a discussion on design trends as seen through the eyes of Grace Bonney of design*sponge, Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan of apartmenttherapy and Harry Wakefield of mocoloco.


I'm super excited to hear Grace speak in person as I completely admire her business acumen and trailblazing ways -- not to mention she helped grow my readership when I had just started the blog by posting my bedroom before-and-after.


Apartment Therapy is practically its own industry. After buying the paperback and finding it surprisingly new-agey I was a touch thrown off, but  I still stop by the site regularly for their small house tours and am excited to hear Maxwell speak. (not to mention Iwas very honoured when someone chose my bedroom as a roomark)
