Swedish Design Blogs

First, I have to thank Emma from one of Sweden's leading design blogs, emmas designblogg, for asking me to be part of her "10 Quick" series. I'm flattered to be featured alongside other "10" ladies such as Lena Corwin, Ranvita la Cour, Louise Campbell, and Lotta Jansdotter. Thank you so much, Emma!

Ah. The thought of visiting Sweden. Swedish Interiors. Gorgeous design. Mmm. Doesn't it send a slight longing through your soul? The streets of Stockholm, strolling the coast, riding through the countryside, and the shopping. Sweden is a dream destination, and if you're like me and can't hop a plane over whenever you'd like, you can start scanning Swedish design blogs for a taste of the magic. Emmas designblogg is a great design source, and she translates quite a bit of text to English, a major draw for me.

While reading one of my favorite American blogs, SFGirlByBay, I found out that Victoria discovered Swedish blogger, Annika of HOOM. We can always trust Victoria's taste, so whenever I click her links, I find the best places to peruse. Anyway, HOOM is such a beautiful Swedish blog with some posts in English so you can do more than drool at the pretty pictures.

More to love: RoomService, Tinas blogg, hemmariket, and the beautiful chez lison. These blogs are 100% eye candy. I think it's so important to look at the world of design, not just the popular trends and designs coming out of your own country, but to explore beyond the borders and see what's happening in distant lands. And with new design blogs popping up constantly worldwide, it's suddenly so easy to do.

We each have a voice, a perspective, and something important to bring to the world of blogging. It's not just a world for few, but a place for all. Let us start with Sweden. :)
