Meet the designers behind our DIYs

We’re always looking for new ways to get inspired at home. So we asked three DIY masters to create projects for every room in the house. Learn a little about these inspiring designers, then go find a project that inspires you!

Grace founded the blog Design*Sponge in 2004 and went on to write the best-selling book Design*Sponge at Home. When she’s not writing about design, she’s supporting the design community – from establishing a scholarship for young designers to starting the Biz Ladies series, which helps support and grow creative businesses. Check out her DIYs for Color-Dipped Bowls and Scented Bath Salts among other delights!

Maxwell is an interior designer, an author, and founder of Apartment Therapy and The Kitchn. Launched as a single design blog in 2004, the lifestyle websites are dedicated to helping people make their homes more beautiful, joyful and healthy. See how Maxwell made Lace Doily Bowls and a Shelf-Top Ironing Board.

Obsessed with cooking, crafting and decorating, Paul transformed a simple blog about his work as a food and prop stylist into Sweet Paul Magazine. All about homemade, handmade and “chasing the sweet things in life,” Paul combines easy recipes, elegant ideas and a one-of-a-kind style to celebrate life’s everyday occasions. Try making his Mason Jar Caddy or Vintage Pie Tin Stand.
