Sometimes I don’t think green gets enough credit for being such a lovely color. Maybe because it’s always busy representing eco-friendly initiatives, or we get so sick of it around St. Patrick’s Day, but really, I think it’s time to give green a chance. With that in mind, here are some home accents in gorgeous shades of green. Check out all the shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
“Our house looks like it’s out of ‘Beetlejuice.’ It’s not so much the outdoors, but the indoors, with the crazy table and all the colors. She’s got some new room with checkered carpeting, checkered benches, checkered coffee tables. There are like 90 different patterns in one. It’s kind of creepy.”
—Scott Disick reveals what he really thinks about how his baby mama, Kourtney Kardashian, has decorated their new home in Los Angeles. I dunno—this sounds pretty darn cool to me. And not to play pop culture reference police, but ‘Beetlejuice’ would usually refer to black-and-white patterns, not colors. Just sayin’. [People] Keep reading »
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 by a guard. But since the “Pimp My Cell” online game lets players add everything from photos of Perez Hilton to a bouquet of flowers to an imaginary cell, we thought we’d do some armchair decorating for Lindsay.

Interior designer Kimberlee Paige Hanson has just launched a new firm called “Sexy Bachelor Pad” which focuses on transforming post-college bachelor-pad disaster zones into hip, chic and sexy spaces. According to Hanson, “Women are nesters, so when they walk into a home where a man has really created atmosphere, it creates a different kind of connection with the man, and it makes them see him in a different way. We try to give him a little edge in that arena.” And her firm’s catchphrase is, tellingly, “Trust us. You need our help.” Since so many residential-focused interior designers get their start working on bachelor homes and apartments, a firm explicitly geared towards unmarried men with a good amount of disposable income makes sense! But get a load of this transformation video, featuring one apartment. Now, imagine yourself walking into that apartment for “post-date drinks”—what the hell would you think? For me, it’s a little too aesthetically pleasing and a touch too done-up—c’mon, what guy has a spice rack? (Uh, I’m decently into cooking and even I don’t have a full-on spice rack!) What say you: Does a done-up apartment make a guy sexier or slightly off-putting? [Daily Candy] Keep reading »

One of my favorite pastimes is reading interior design magazines like Domino and getting depressed about the look of my own department. It’s a sickness, really. But I think one of the easiest ways to cure a depressing habitat situation is to spruce up what you’ve already got with some new, cheap home accessories. Like the eight after the jump! Keep reading »
