When we were planning out The Homies this year, we decided that it was time we added in an award from the Apartment Therapy editors. We wanted an opportunity to honor one of our blogging colleagues and recognize their contribution to the world of design blogs and the online community.
We're happy to announce that this year's Lifetime Achievement Award goes to Decor8, the long-time, always inspiring blog by the talented Holly Becker.
Holly launched Decor8 in 2006 and has grown the blog into a thriving online destination for design lovers covering interiors, shopping, projects and food. She's written two wonderful books Decorate: 1,000 Inspirational Ideas For Every Room In Your Home and Decorate Workshop: Design and Style Your Space in 8 Creative Steps, and has a third coming out this spring, Decorate with Flowers: Creative Ideas for Flowers and Containers Around the Home.
All of us on the Apartment Therapy editorial team (Janel, Carrie, Dabney, Nancy, Jen and Adrienne) along with our Homies 2014 judges (Kate of Centsational Girl and Sarah of Curbed) send Holly our sincere congratulations on winning our first ever Lifetime Achievement Award. As a quote from one of our ballots stated, "She's provided us all with amazing and inspiring content for years!" and it's true, I personally feel like clicking over to Decor 8 feels like visiting an old (and very stylish) friend. We all look forward to seeing where she takes Decor 8 next.
Please join us in congratulating Holly and visit Decor8 today!
