Quick Pic: Let’s “Pop In” Jerry Seinfeld’s Apartment, Shall We?

The sort-of-not-really “Seinfeld” reunion (AKA the “Seinfeld” peeps got together to resurrect their old sets and yuk it up for “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) called for a few 2009 upgrades to Jerry’s apartment—granite countertops, flat screen TV, side-by-side door refridge. Kinda weird seeing it that way, right? [Joy Hog!] Keep reading »

Celebs And Their Homes—Get The Inside Scoop

If you would never sign up for one of those LA “Homes of Celebrities” tours or buy the “Stars Homes” map, this isn’t the post for you. But if you love anything to do with eying the insides of celeb spaces, then keep reading.

It’s called The Real Estalker. If you’ve ever wondered what John Krasinski’s “starter home” looked like or wanted to get a look at the floor plan of Heather Mills’ newest home (thanks, Paul and your million-dollar divorce settlement!), look no further. (Also, a question: I am ignoring the little voice in the back of my head screaming, “THIS SITE IS FREAKING ME OUT”—do you find the idea of the website totally creep-town?)

Check This Out: DIY Photobooth Pic Site

Everyone loves a nostalgic set of black and white photobooth pics of you and your buds. If you’re like us, you usually acquire these at bars with the old-school machines. While that’s all good and fun, there are two problems: 1.) It’s so addicting you could easily empty your wallet; 2.) Beer time doesn’t always make for the most photogenic moments. That’s why we’re obsessed with this DIY website, La PhotoCabine, which lets you print out your own replicas (you do need a webcam, obvi). The process is pretty intuitive—click the curtain to “enter” the booth, then push the orange button on the right, and pose for four consecutive pics. You can choose to organize them in the classic vertical line, or a foursquare like I did above. Download, print, and voilà! [LaPhotoCabine.com] Keep reading »

The New Domino Magazine?

It’s called Lonny magazine and as of late last night (or early this morning, rather), it’s now got a launch date—October 1st. For those not obsessed with every move ex-Domino staffers make, Lonny is home decor/design mag in the vein of Domino (it’s even got a former Domino editor on its inagural cover, look!) that’s being pulled together by Michelle Adams, the woman behind Rubie Green textiles, and a former Domino assistant herself! It’s set to be online only—PDF versions, perhaps? So get pumped, Domino lovers. Interiors coverage is set to get fun again! OMFG. [MA Belle] Keep reading »

Finally, Spam Mail Is Good For Something

How many times a day do you automatically delete emails with subjects like “Get big penis now offer pump for sex only $12.99!” (Or maybe you don’t delete them? We don’t know!) At least there’s one person out there finding a comical use for spam emails that would otherwise be a nuisance—Floyd Hayes, a graphic designer who decided to pimp out the subject lines in sex spam emails on colorful buttons. His line, called SeksiSpam, features pins emblazoned with the hilarious phrases that come to his inbox: “Riding seksi bich”; “Nice graet leegs”; “Working on nipless.” Keep reading »

Anna Wintour’s Office: A Label-Whore Breakdown

Many of us have seen photos of Anna Wintour‘s office at this point—and it was most famously copied for “The Devil Wears Prada” (though she’s since redecorated to banish any similarities, we hear)—but what really makes up the chic space? Like, can we be label whores for a minute? Indeed, because Apartment Therapy has a piece-by-piece breakdown of its contents! (Based on the above screenshot from “The September Issue” and a few “60 Minutes” clips.) Check out all the interior details, after the jump!

What Editors, Models, And Designers Are Gettin’ Drunk On During Fashion Week

So, the editors don’t actually have time to stop and sip them, but all kinds of somehow-got-in-the-door-but-why-are-they-here? types in the tents are swilling free booze in between doing whatever it is they’re doing in there. What are they drinking? We know we’ve spotted Moet here and there, but the harder stuff is Akvinta Vodka, the official sponsor of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The cocktail they’re serving is called the “Gold Cooler” and it actually sounds really good. Just for fun — it’s always happy hour somewhere! — we thought we’d share the recipe, after the jump.

Passion Tips: Sexy Bedrooms For Erotic Loving (Examiner)

In writing about “Passion tips: your erotic and romantic love story,” I talked about designing your love room with words. In fact, with a tiny bit of ingenuity, you can turn your bedroom into a place of serenity and loving passion.

For years I have loved and referred to a book by Claire Cooper Marcus called House As a Mirror of Self: Exploring the Deeper Meaning of Home. This afternoon I took a walk through the Brown campus, stopped at a tiny deli, and one of the local papers had an article talking about her work. She believes that your home reflects your feelings about yourself.

If you are fretting about not having enough loving taking place in your home, here are some tips for turning your bedroom into a passion place — not the ancient Pompeii brothel as pictured here — but certainly a place that creates an aura of quiet love and erotic passion.

Crave: Zune HD (Win It!)

Some of us carry around way too many devices to keep us informed while we’re out and about. The Zune HD solves that problem. It’s the first portable digital media player to combine HD radio, built-in Wi-Fi, up to 10 hours of HD video, and an internet browser into one sleek and stylish device. You can easily flip through music, movies, and other content with the touchscreen, not to mention stream or download music effortlessly from Zune Marketplace. And you don’t have to watch everything on the portable device since the Zune HD can be connected to your HDTV. So, instead of weighing yourself down with gadgets and gizmos, now all you need are your cell phone and your Zune HD. [$219.99 - $289.99, Amazon]

The Zune HD is currently available for pre-order in black (16GB) and platinum (32GB), but we’re giving away ONE in an exclusive color. The best commenter for this coming week—from today, Friday, Sept. 11 through Thursday, Sept. 17—will be awarded with a Zune HD. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!
