i think it would take too long to link into them, but designlovefest, design milk, design sponge, design crush (anything with design in it, really), sfgirlbybay, swiss miss, cmybacon, my modern met, cool hunting, the cool hunter, creature comforts, the jealous curator, junk culture, the fresh exchange, and the pink & blue blog. i also find inspiration in fashion blogs and nerd/geek culture blogs as well. my rss feed dominates my life!
I like http://www.dexigner.com/ They usually have some interesting pieces.
