Not surprising because it is so visual, the internet is producing some amazing websites and blogs. One of these blogs I think meets a high bar is Decor8, and that’s why we are giving Decor8 this week’s #SaturdayShoutOut
I would place Decor8 in what I consider the “inspirational” class of blogs and websites. The blog’s founder, Holly Becker, shares with her followers that she launched Decor8 in 2006 to “document my decorating inspirations and to reach like-minded people with a passion for interiors.”
Nine years later, she has more than achieved her goal. Sharing her ideas and visual style, in combination with those of her favorite designers, her blog is simple, refined eye candy. The images, products and ideas featured on her blog represent a unified style and sensibility, but also speak volumes on their own.
Some of her most memorable posts are those where she shares her more personal insights, loosely titled “Ramblings.” These posts help us understand that there is a unique individual working behind the scenes at Decor8, who is flawed, emotional, but clearly able to communicate with us all on many levels, beginning with most prominently and delightfully, the visual.
Hats off to you Holly! I love your blog!
