I have to come clean and admit I don’t read a lot of design blogs. I know. I know. Criminal. Problem is, much like the former variety of home decor magazines, most design blogs are full of eye candy I cannot afford and after seeing the millionth lamp priced at $400, I just get turned off and stop reading. Which is one of the many reasons I started this blog, but you probably already know that.
So what blogs do I read? Mostly I read stuff that is really irreverent and makes me laugh, like dooce and Badder Homes and Gardens. But thanks to the recommendation of my friend Kristen, I’ve recently added Unhappy Hipsters to the mix. Unhappy Hipsters takes photos from mags like Dwell and Interior Design and gives them new captions that crack me the H up:
If I’m Hallmark or American Greetings (or Dwell magazine, for that matter), I’m thinking Unhappy Hipsters would make a great new greeting card line…
Thanks for the shouty-out. Nikki showed me that blog a few days ago and it immediately stifled my ennui. (Trying to sound like a hipster. Hope it’s working!)
