Confession: We love — like, really love — a good home-decor blog. Since the decline of Domino (We shed some very real tears back then, so we'll believe this relaunch news when we see it. But we digress…), we've kept our Google Readers filled to the brim with eye-catching, extra-clickable sites to keep our creative cravings sated. We're talking the whole package — some original photography, a bit of DIY flavor, and plenty of shoppable posts.
And in case you hadn't noticed, we also really
love our hometown
. That's why we're psyched to introduce you to some of our favorite local design aficionados
who keep their blogs and Pinterest
boards so packed with good stuff, we can't resist browsing on the regular. (Indeed, in the process of narrowing down our list, we went on quite the "Save-Image-As" spree. Oops.) So, check out our top picks for aesthetic awesomeness, straight from the blogosphere, right here in our backyard.
