After my post on the overly glamourous facade of design blogs, a minor storm cooked up in the Swedish design blogosphere. It all started with this post written by Frida at Trendenser, where she totally misinterpreted the whole discussion and made it into something completely different, and then her readers starting making lots of posts telling everyone how they don't want to see dirty dishes on design blogs. As if someone ever suggested that? If you are one of those people who thinks this discussion is about posting ugly stuff, please read this post, and understand that it is all about showing your more human side, not about showing bad photos of your messy home.
I added the instagram widget here on my blog, not to make things uglier, but to give you a glimpse of my everyday life, since I never post about that. If you think those photos are totally apalling, you don't have to look. I will still be posting lots of wonderful, stylish photos here like I have always done, and have no intention of showing those iphone photos anywhere else than in that little grid in the side bar.
Since that discussion got out of hand, I kind of lost my desire to blog... But I can't just leave you all hanging like that, so here is a little mix of what caught my eye over at Pinterest for the last few days. Enjoy!
