Caitlin's recommendations: I recommend to all our readers to visit people and places in real life in their community. Or if a nearby city or neighborhood needs help, go there. take time to offline and personal. Read books, volunteer, visit the elderly and your neighbors. The internet will always be there, but some people and places will not. Share some of them with them.

Lauren Chorpening is the author of hometours at Design * Sponge
Follow the people your people follow. So I came in search of new home tours. Rather than aiming aimlessly for new blogs and Instagram accounts that would lead me to unique homes and stories, I went to accounts I loved and looked at the accounts she Consequences. Finding out who inspires people who inspire me is always a great way to discover incredibly talented people who would never have appeared in a simple search. I do not think there is another site that fills the beautiful room that Grace created with Design * Sponge, but if you may reveal my secret to discover incredible artists, houses and products, you can D * S in Get your own way alive.
Persons whom I follow:
1. Freddie Harrel – she's forever my style icon. https: //www.instagram.
2. Sarah Gibson – her renovations blew me away. www.roomfortuesday.com
3. Kate Arends – her podcast was so helpful to lately. https: // witanddelight.
4. Julia Miller – she builds the coolest house in the Midwest. https://www.instagram.com/
5. Alice Gao – her photos inspire my freelance work so much. http://alicegao.com/

Erin Austen Abbott is the author of hometours at Design * Sponge
Erin's recommendations: The resources I want to follow are places that work hard to create an inclusive space for all their readers. I am very proud of the work we have done at Design * Sponge to do the same. Challenge sites that you think are more inclusive and create your own space for other voices if you can not find it. Do not be afraid to work for those we do not always see. A few sockets that I think are good at sharing this space Omkari Williams. The Jungalow, and Mother Mag, Do not put the design in a box. There are so many great design blogs and accounts to follow. Find your new favorite by finding one that does not just stick to a decorating style.
