Launched in 2004, Design*Sponge is a blog featuring visually-packed design inspiration tips ranging from interior makeovers, furniture recycling ideas, to living space design trends.
Created by Brooklyn-based designer Grace Bonney, Design*Sponge (D*S) has been touted as a “Martha Stewart Living for the Millennials” by the New York Times. It has very enlightening columns such as “Before and After Basics,” where they present good refurbishing tips to enhance your furniture and space makeover skills; “Made With Love,” which features handmade crafts and gift ideas; and “Treasure Hunting,” a column loaded with hints on buying and displaying collectible objects.
Last January in their “Products” section, two Lomographic cameras namely the La Sardina Camera & Flash in Cubic, and the Lomokino, were featured as part of the “Winter Design Trends in Home & Tech Accessories” article.
D*S also has a section called “Living In,” a reference column where you can get ideas on
how to decorate your space by sourcing similar furniture and shelter accessories that are distinct to a particular movie. Last January, the featured movie is the 1966 iconic film “Blow-Up,” a story of a British photographer and his accidental entanglement in a murder, which he discovered through his enlarged (or blown-up) film photographs.
