"The Homies" -- Apartment Therapy's List of Top Design Blogs of 2008

The design blog Apartment Therapy is running a survey it's calling "The Homies" to pick the best home design blog of 2008. They've narrowed the field down to eight finalists.

Why should you be interested in design blogs? For starters, they offer great commentary on design and trends. It's helpful to see how furniture fits into the overall context of interior design.

Finally, they offer another way to see what people are buying or at least wanting to buy.
