Home Inspiration: Map It Out

I’m planning a big trip to Europe next summer. The only problem is that I am pretty much useless at planning anything more long term than a few hours from right now. So far I’ve saved a little money, written down a few goals, and that’s pretty much it. When I told my friend Lynn, a seasoned traveler, that I was having trouble getting started, she gave me a great tip… Keep reading »

Does This Jonathan Adler “Thinspiration” Pillow Offend You?

Some would argue that the slogan “Nothing feels as good as skinny feels” promotes anorexia. But ask a Weight Watchers member, and she might say this mantra, which I’ve heard repeated in meetings, kept her on track to healthy weight loss. I can see both sides of the debate, especially since decorator Jonathan Adler, who created this pillow for Kirna Zabête, is known for his cheeky designs. So does this pillow offend you?

Rock On, Art!

Moxy Creative House has put together a badass series of art prints depicting the signature styles of 20 different rock icons. Ranging from Kurt Cobain to Run DMC, these limited edition posters are almost as cool as the rock gods that inspired them. One major complaint, though: no female musicians were included. Seriously? No Debbie Harry? No Billie Holiday? Shame! [$30 each, Moxy Creative House] Keep reading »

Don’t You Dare Decorate Alone

Home decorating is overwhelming, even for folks who aren’t colorblind. But housewares designer Jonathan Adler breaks it down for those of us with Kelly Wearstler dreams on an Ikea budget. In his book Jonathan Adler on Happy Chic Accessorizing, he tells you how to arrange everything from pillowcases to coffee tables, and shares his favorite paint chips and fabric swatches. Naturally, there are tons of photos of rooms decorated in his quirky, colorful style and his dog, Liberace, is the pup on the cover! Follow Adler’s motto, “95% chic + 5% happy,” and I bet you’ll love your home so much you’ll never want to leave.

Awesome Affordable Etsy Find: Pillow Talk

Isn’t this just the sweetest little pillow? I feel like if this pillow were a person it would be that one girl who seems perfectly prim and proper and gets a little nervous whenever people use swear words, but then you find out something really crazy and incongruous about her life, like maybe she was the 1999 Texas Hold ‘Em Poker World Champion or something, and you think, “Yes. This is why we’re friends.” [Yellow and Lace Pillow, $10, Etsy] Keep reading »
