I am beyond honored to learn that Hus & Hem magazine in Sweden, a favorite of mine, has named decor8 along with 9 other bloggers as one of the best decorating blogs! This is a great opportunity for decor8 and those featured on this site to receive increased exposure in Sweden to some new readers. I’m always grateful and very happy when decor8 receives a press mention — it means that we’re all succeeding together — not just me but those who are featured on this blog or who have been guest blogging recently while I’ve been keeping a temporary part-time blogging schedule. We all stand tall and succeed together and I’m proud of us when decor8 gets a good press mention because without all of you — from your link backs to friendships, contributions through posts or submissions, we ALL get the credit and I thank each of you for always supporting this site. :)
If you are new to decor8 and coming over from Hus & Hem, I’m Holly Becker — an American writer and design consultant (interiors) who just moved to Hannover, Germany last week and will now be based here full-time after 5 years of living and working between Germany and New Hampshire, USA. I launched this blog in May 2005 but was not sure how to go about blogging and didn’t know what exactly to say until I officially started writing in January 2006 and the second I started typing I wrote about art & design from all over the world – and I still do!
Everything that you see on this site was found and curated by me with the exception of posts written by guest bloggers (clearly indicated in each post if not authored by me). On Tuesdays I feature a special column called “Etsy Take Five Tuesdays” where I write about 5 Etsy stores and share images of some of my favorite things from their shops. On Thursdays, I write “Musical Thursdays”, a post spotlighting 2-5 CDs of the week that I’m listening to since I love music and think it makes a huge difference in the home environment and ones mood and even emotional health.
In between these columns, I post about things that have caught my eye, interior designers, photographers, fellow bloggers, anything and everything that falls under decorating, art & design and my own personal design aesthetic. I write daily Monday through Friday 3-5 times each day, more if I’m feeling up to it or super duper inspired. :) Anyway, thank you for visiting and I hope that you will enjoy reading decor8!
Thank you Helena for telling me about this press mention (tack!), and to Anna for sending me this image above.
