How To Clutter Your Digs And Stay Classy, Too

Stylist Masha Orlov is, for lack of a better word, cool. She tells the fashion folk at magazines like Purple and L’Officiel what’s up and her wardrobe makes us crazy with jealousy. Recently, she invited Refinery29 into her house/closet and gave the web a look at how to be eclectic without looking sloppy. If you’re the collecting sort with a tendency towards messiness, Orlov’s place is a good example of restrained kitsch. How to pull it off after the jump. [Refinery29] Keep reading »

A Chandelier From Your Recycling Bin

Lonny, our favorite online home magazine, just put up its April/May issue, and it’s chock-full of fun stuff, from editor-in-chief Michelle Adams’s apartment (she has ostrich wallpaper!) to a chic soup recipe from Katie Lee. We’re especially keen to try the instructions Erica Domesek of P.S. – I Made This … shared for creating a modern chandelier out of discarded water bottles (she created a few other eco-friendly DIY projects to promote Dasani‘s new PlantBottle, too). We think we’ll make one to glam up our bathroom. Keep reading »

Is Your Apartment The Smallest, Coolest of 2010?

Easter is behind us and Mother’s Day is still a few weeks away, which means it must be the season for Apartment Therapy’s annual Small, Cool Contest. Now in its sixth year, the home design contest is open to anyone who lives in a home 1,000 square feet or smaller. Finalists are chosen from several categories and a grand prize winner will receive a weekend trip to New York City, including $1,000 in cash to spend on a design shopping tour. The four Division Winners will each receive $250 to spend on their home, and the top 40 semi-finalists will each receive Apartment Therapy’s new design coffee table book. Submissions are open now through April 19, so if you want a chance to qualify, get out your camera, take a few shots of your apartment and send them along with a floor plan. In the meantime, check out the homes already submitted and be sure to stop back by between now and May 10 to vote on your favorites! Keep reading »

5 Ways To (Almost) Instantly Decorate Your Home

Even though I’m going on three years in my apartment, I wouldn’t say the place is “decorated,” so to speak. I have furniture (mostly hand-me-downs from my parents or pieces I picked up on trash day) and I have art (largely hanging from nails left by the last tenant), but my studio hasn’t quite come together.

To get me on track, I picked up Speed Decorating: A Pro Stager’s Tips and Trade Secrets for a Fabulous Home in a Week or Less by Jill Vegas, an interior decorator and “stager,” which means she makes people’s homes more salable. Here’s what I learned … Keep reading »

No Use Crying Over Spilled Wine

Because it’s just so pretty when it gets all over Kristine Bjaadal’s table cloth, which reveals a butterfly pattern when wet. We wish this had been around when we were kids. [Irresistable.fr] Keep reading »

Careful, Kids, Drinking Can Cause Chemical Reactions

It’s hard to decide whether this chemistry set-inspired cocktail set is a warning against the dangers of drinking or just the coolest, most geeked-out way to make a margarita. Either way, the dork in us all can’t get enough of this combination of two of our favorite things: cocktails and nerdiness. [GeekSugar] Keep reading »

Have A Very Techy Breakfast

This laptop table tray by Zyane Tan combines two of our favorite activities: eating and computing. Now we might not feel like such slobs when we usually get crumbs all over the keyboard while browsing the morning news. Too bad we don’t have an extra $3,000 handy. [Unplggd] Keep reading »

Try This Impressive (Yet Surprisingly Easy) Chocolate Paint DIY

If you’re looking for a guaranteed crowd-pleaser for a dinner party (which will also distract from a ho-hum dessert if you’re not the world’s greatest baker), check out this surprisingly simple and sweet DIY brought to you by food blog Eye Candy. We know what you’re thinking: Yeah right, Martha Stewart. But trust us, we can hardly draw stick figures, and this was a piece of cake. (Har har.)

FoodSexVideo.com: Cooking For Hot Girls

I can’t speak for the rest of The Frisky staff, but my own cooking skills are fairly limited. (And by “fairly limited” I mean eggs and pasta are about the extent of it.) It’s not that I’m not interested in learning how to cook, it’s more the fact that most of my hobbies revolve around shoes — as in I literally did ballet for the ballet slippers when I was younger — and that’s a rather hard habit to break. So when I met the Cook In Heels a few months back and she told me about the blog she was working on, I got pretty effing excited (and did a video for her about hot date food!). The pseudonymous chef posts recipe videos on FoodSexVideo.com every ten days or so, scattered sexy food content during the week, and hilarious, filthy little shorts, too. If red patent pumps can’t get a girl like me to cook, I don’t know what can … Keep reading »
