These Pillow Shams Are Just Dandy

It's a bit of a girly cliche to have a ton of throw pillows everywhere, but let's face it, they make your couch or bed look more cozily catalog-like. Plus, if you don't have the bones to drop on a total makeover, switching up the linens and pillow covers is a great way to a…

It used to be that on Christmas or Hanukkah, our more practical parent always gifted us with a wall calendar for the upcoming year. Back then, 12 months of Kirk Cameron was something to look forward to. Now that we're older, we want a wall calendar that's sleek and practical to go above our desk.

Fitness Furniture Combines Home Gym And Locker Room In One

Closets mean different things for different people. If you're Carrie Bradshaw, it's a sanctuary and shrine. If you're a slob, it's your cleaning quick-fix that houses any assortment of junk. And if you're someone who lives in a cramped studio apartment in Chinatown, then you probably don't have a closet, so for you it represent…

Urban’s Ornaments Make Us Giddy For The Holidays

Playing with table design, Japanese company Oey combines Mizuhiki with chopsticks, binding them together with brightly colored twine. In the end, thi…

Care To Take A Tinkle In Your “Twilight” Toilet?

Out of all the crazy fan products out there, this "Twilight" toilet decal is among the more deranged we've seen. (Seriously, the bathroom is a place where you leave all relationships at the door.) But, for "New Moon" die-hards, they can now go pee with Robert Pattinson staring them right in the a…

Interior Design Suggestions For Lindsay Lohan’s Jail Cell

Our motto is "Happy homes make happy people." But do happy jail cells make happy inmates? Now, we've heard that Century Regional Detention Facility inmates aren't allowed to decorate their cells -- a lesson Paris Hilton learned the hard way during her stint there in 2007, when her family photos were ripped off the wall…

You Know You Want To Look Inside Lady Gaga’s Manor

Just a few years ago, Stefani Germanotta was living in a small apartment in New York City while working hard to make it in the music business. These days, she's headlining Madison Square Garden, capriciously writing on Birkin bags with Sharpies, and strutting around in Alexander McQueen heels. But that's not all. When Lady…
