Wow. What a creative group. Each with such passion for their blog and project. Love the list.

I have to wonder if everyone has Martha Stewart to thank. She really started it all by making home decorating conversation mainstream with her Living magazine. I can remember subscribing to it when it came out in 1990, glued to each page, trying out her decorating and craft ideas. My kids are grown and gone so I don’t subscribe anymore, nor do I watch her show much, but I can tell you as one of her neighbors, her taste is impeccable and her attention to detail is extraordinary. Her blog is gorgeous too. I can’t think of another person who set the bar so high for the huge success of fellow home decorating bloggers.

Martha is the Grand Dame, isn’t she?

Trish @TheOldPostRoad October 28, 2012 at 8:20 am

Those are some of my favorites, too! Plus yours! Can’t believe October is almost complete.

It went fast, didn’t it?

Christina from Dallas October 28, 2012 at 9:26 am

I like some of these too. Have you heard of Thistlewood Farm? The decorating is beautiful over there on that blog too. I just discovered that one a few days ago.

hookedonhouses October 28, 2012 at 9:31 am

Yes! I featured KariAnne’s blog here: http://hookedonhouses.net/2012/10/24/its-fall-at-thistlewood-farm-come-on-in/. Love it! :-)

Christina from Dallas October 28, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Oops! I think that is how I orginally found it! Now I feel dumb .

hookedonhouses October 28, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Ha. No worries. It’s easy to follow links around the Web and forgot how you ended up somewhere. I do it all the time! :-)

Delores October 28, 2012 at 12:21 pm

Rebecca@MidcenturyModernRemodel October 28, 2012 at 12:31 pm

Kris Betts October 28, 2012 at 12:57 pm

I really like Carolyne Roehm’s new website and Charlotte Moss’s as well. I have to check Cote de Texas daily its my all time favorite. OH and I really enjoy Penelope Bianchi’s blog her taste is fantastic.

laura @ hollywood housewife October 28, 2012 at 1:10 pm

I read so many of these blogs! In fact, I probably found you through one of them (long, long ago).

holly October 28, 2012 at 1:58 pm

You HAVE to get some screen shots or other photos of the Jonas Compound in Texas. I got rooked into watching Married to Jonas by my kids and it is the parents house, not the one he lives in in Jersey. Please! It is gorgeous!

hookedonhouses October 28, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Oh, really? I keep catching snippets of that show but never saw any shots of the compound. Thanks!

Emily A. Clark October 28, 2012 at 2:13 pm

Glad to be part of such a great list. Thanks for the link, Julia!

hookedonhouses October 29, 2012 at 6:25 am

Of course I’m going to say yes! Blog about it! :-)

Benji October 30, 2012 at 10:10 am

Do it Do it! I think it would be a great blog. Do it Do it! just do the blog about the rehab. forget the decorating that can come later. I fact you could solicit decorating ideas from readers.

baileywife October 28, 2012 at 8:01 pm

You have named my favorites! I visit them daily!

Kim October 29, 2012 at 8:04 pm

Great tips! My favorite that I use all the time are fresh flowers. They add such cheer, even just a few blooms in a simple mason jar.

Jeffrey June 27, 2013 at 9:00 pm

Thank you very much for compiling these together. A few of them I’ve already been following, but it’s nice to have a comprehensive list. I’m now going to bookmark your site, along with the remainder!

Flamingo July 11, 2013 at 3:00 am
