DesignHounds, and prior to that, BlogTour, which was launched in 2011, have forged a new path for influencer marketing in the interiors, kitchen, and bath industries, and have consistently created exciting new opportunities for design professionals to collaborate with brands and elevate their level of authority.

Having been personally involved as influencer and speaker, I can say that DesignHounds is the real deal.
