In honor of the newly released Design*Sponge at Home book, inspired by the most popular single-site design blog, (in case you haven’t already noticed I have just a teensy obsession with design) I wanted to share one of their amazing resources for those of us who are travel as well as design-inclined.

Design*Sponge has been a daily read for me for about a year now and one of my favorite parts of the website is the places section. It features cities in over 35 countries written by locals who share a passion for design. Each city features cute little shops, delectable looking restaurants, bars, coffee shops, hotels, and more. There are the big cities (New York, Washington DC, London) and small, quirky cities (Tulsa and Louisville).

I’m a sucker for a good city guide and when it’s put together by someone who shares my interests, it’s even better. I hope this page provides you with as many lazy-cafe-interior-decorating-store-browsing afternoons as it has me.
