woven plastic rugs: perfect for people with pets.

January 14th, 2011 · Comments Off on woven plastic rugs: perfect for people with pets.

I absolutely adore our dog and couldn’t imagine life without his little scruffy face in it. However, since introducing the four-legged gremlin into our lives, we’ve had to make some decorating concessions. For example, when it comes to floor coverings, there’s just no way we could ever have a luxurious, high-pile rug (at least in […]

polaroid iphone decal, how fun.

January 14th, 2011 · Comments Off on polaroid iphone decal, how fun.

Buy the The Polaroid iPhone Decal at the Photojojo Store! It is somehow always cooler to make fancy schmancy modern possessions appear much less fancy schmancy and modern than they really are…case in point: iphone decal mimicking the front of a classic Polaroid camera.

Busy Beaver Button Museum.

December 8th, 2010 · Comments Off on Busy Beaver Button Museum.

Everywhere you turn, someone has a statement to make…and judging by the work of Christen Carter, founder of Busy Beaver Button Co., the biggest statements are often best made on a small platform…such as a 1 inch button. In the late 1800s, buttons were used as a colorful way to promote all kinds of things…politicians, […]

live like barbie: the blonde collection.

November 18th, 2010 · 1 Comment

When I got home from work the other night I was going through the mail — bill, bill, magazine, Barbie catalog, bill — wait, a Barbie catalog? My curiosity peaked,  I forged on — obscene highlights from The Blonde Collection, a limited run, collector’s dream, include a $9,000 chandelier made of blonde Barbie locks (designed by Project Runway […]

November 4th, 2010 · 3 Comments

Thanks to this commercial for The New Yorker‘s iPad app, I no longer have to wonder what it’d be like to spend a day with Jason Schwartzman. (I’m happy to report that he’s just as magical as I knew he’d be!) Also, where can I buy the light behind his head in the first scene?

paris versus new york blog.

November 2nd, 2010 · 1 Comment

Vahram Muratyan‘s Paris vs New York blog is genius. It basically confirms my belief that Americans could take a cue from the French when it comes to the finer things in life — coffee, good bread, and film. And we wonder why Americans are so fat. Based on the food and beverage comparisons alone, Paris vs New York […]

the nowness takes us inside jeffrey deitch’s LA home.

October 27th, 2010 · Comments Off on the nowness takes us inside jeffrey deitch’s LA home.

I nearly squealed with delight when I saw the subject line “MOCA’s Jeffrey Deitch at home in Hollywood on NOWNESS.com” pop up in my inbox. I have secretly been hoping that someone would give us a peek into the home of LA’s most exciting new transplant and the new director of LA MOCA. Deitch has […]
