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.

Prosthetic Limbs – New Orleans
Else de Wolfe’s house at Versailles

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.

Voronet Monestary

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.

Jacques Granges at home
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!
