Condo Blues: Amazon Gift Card Giveaway!

Amazon Gift Card Giveaway!

Once upon a time, all we had were design magazines. Each month, readers held their breath and hoped their snail mailed questions and comments where answered and printed in the magazine. It was hit and miss, mostly miss. If you saw an appliance you like in a kitchen tour and it was not given promotional consideration in the article, there was no easy way to search for it, let alone find a place that sells it.

The Internet and its design blogs changed all that. We can easily search for and find what we like, and have our questions answered. If you see that beautiful dishwasher you want to own (yep, mine is still broken) on a blog, a quick Internet search finds it and tells you where you can buy it.

And there was much rejoicing!

Although after you buy the appliance from the store, you’re still kind of stuck when it comes to asking the store for help designing and decorating the room around said new appliance.

Until…

Yes, you guys, this is a screen capture of Appliance Online’s design and lifestyle blog, AO at Home. Finally a site where you can buy the appliances you need (if you live in the UK) and read advice on how to design the rest of the room around it or what to cook on it or in it.  

AO at Home looks and reads like any number of big name decorating, craft, or food blogs I read regularly. I like AO at Home and added AO at Home to my feed reader, not because they asked or paid me to, but because I like the blog and swoon over UK style, Anglophile that I am. Give it a read. I’m sure you will like it too.

Love the recipe for French Toast with Orange Gala Syrup on their blog. I loved their interview with Nina Taylor from Graham & Brown...they're my favorite wallpaper company and I liked hearing about their upcoming design line

I learned that neon is back in style, even for home decorating. Amazingly, it doesn't look bad either - I could see incorporating some neon pink into our decor. :)
