At Kukun, we follow more than a few bloggers (a lot more than a few, in fact) because we dole out tons of info on home design and renovation, and we know other people have awesome things to say on these subjects as well. That’s why we’d like to extend wishes for a happy Mother’s Day to a some of our favorite mom and home bloggers, who somehow manage to juggle kid care and writing about kitchens. Well done!
1. Jenny Komenda
This New York City mom/design blogger/decorator is the woman behind the much-loved Little Green Notebook and interior design business, Jenny Komenda Interiors. With an affinity for DIY projects and a few small ones in tow, her blog covers everything from cool wallpaper ideas to beautiful baby showers.
2. Melissa Riker
This mother of three boys writes about everything from getting spray paint off skin to dinner recipes and home tours on her blog, and offers recipe and craft development services through her website. Her work has been featured in a number of publications, including Bobvila.com and Woman’s Day Magazine.
3. Joanna Goddard
It’s hard not to love the house makeover posts Goddard features on Cup of Jo (just try – we dare you). Her other favorite topics to write about include fashion, motherhood, relationships, food, beauty, and (of course) design, giving readers plenty of great content to peruse.
4. Linsey Laidlaw
This busy mom is a graphic designer, illustrator, art director (formerly with Martha Stewart Living Magazine), Brooklyn enthusiast, and one heck of a blogger. She writes on a ton of topics, and of course we’re especially partial to the apartment tour and home ideas (like creating a cute, organized space with pegboard).
5. Audrey Kuether
We first came across this mom’s blog through her post about a $500 DIY kitchen remodel (yes, we said $500). Then we discovered even more great before and after photos in the home tour section and we were hooked. There’s also some fun home projects, like dinosaur jar toppers. Her work has been featured in a lengthy list of publications, and it’s easy to see why.
6. Katy Elliott
Renovation enthusiasts, rejoice! Elliott chronicles her adventures renovating a 262-year-old home on her blog, complete with pictures of projects including rebuilding a brick chimney, creating a front step, and stripping lots of paint. With all that renovation know-how, it’s no wonder she’s frequently quoted in magazines.
