Nourison, Sotheby’s and Messy Nessy Chic.
These days, just about everyone is into publishing something online: wholesalers, retailers, designers, traditional publishers, independent bloggers. Trying to understand this new age of communication, I have signed onto to every possible newsletter and blog that does not entail an outlay of my cash.
Blogs and Newsletter break down into two categories: 1) Support for an organization,brand, individual or product and 2) Supported by Advertising
My Favorite Blog supported by advertising – Messy Nessy Chic
Messy Nessy Chic is absolutely the best. It feeds visually delights me.
Monday I found The Mysterious Chapel of Prosthetic Limbs, rather macabre. But it was on the same page as The American Marie Antoinette of Pre-War Paris.
And the 10th post in Monday’s newsletter was The Painted Monasteries of Romania
My Favorite for Support of Brand, Organization or Product
Nourison’s – The Rug Edit
Yes, it is mostly about their rug lines except when it is not. The layout is clean the pictures are clear and the copy well written. A recent blog about High Point Market Trends was visual overview that will force Rug News andDesign to upgrade our coverage. The content chances about every 10 days, so reading this blog doesn’t use up a lot of time.
Sotheby’s – Click on Stories & Videos on their web site, and you can spend almost a whole day being visually educated about everything from exotic cars to the home of Jacques Granges. I have subscribed to the Sotheby’s Magazine online and the This Week at Sotheby’s, but I check their web site at least once a week. It is better than Art 101!
