Many thanks to Design* Sponge editor Grace Bonney for including us! As avid fans of the site, we sure are plum thrilled to be featured. For those of you yet to unearth the treasure that is Design* Sponge, here's a little lowdown... I've taken this info directly from the Design* Sponge biog page.

"Launched in August of 2004, Design*Sponge was declared a "Martha Stewart Living for the Millennials" (NY Times, 2008) and features store and product reviews, city, product, and gift guides, diy projects, before & after furniture and home makeovers, home tours, recipes, videos and podcasts, and trend forecasting. In addition, Design*Sponge features a unique section dedicated to covering student design, national and international design shows. The site is updated constantly throughout the day (with an average of 6-10 posts a day), and attracts a core group of devoted readers. Design*Sponge currently has 40,000 daily readers!

Design*Sponge editor Grace Bonney has a unique angle on the industry, working as a contributing editor at Domino Magazine and CRAFT magazine, and as a freelancer with top publications like House and Garden, In Style, New York Magazine, The New York Post and others.
