Back in the 1990s, we would have given anything for Linda Barker to come to our homes and give them the Changing Rooms treatment. Lawrence Llewelyn-Bowen? Not so much…But anyway, now is your chance to actually own a home that’s been entirely decorated by Linda. Because the original queen of interior design on TV is selling her rural idyll just outside York. The cute cottage is located in Ellerton, a picturesque village around 15 miles and 40 minutes’ drive from York.
To celebrate Mother’s Day, Hillarys asked British fashion and textiles designer Pearl Lowe and her daughter, model Daisy Lowe, to each redecorate a room in their own homes. Each was tasked with creating a stunning new look, using window dressings from the Hillarys collection. The two style icons share a close relationship, and we think that comes across in their approach to interior design. Let’s see how they got on…Daisy wanted a chic and restful sanctuary for her London home.
Pearl and Daisy Lowe are possibly the most stylish mother and daughter duo ever, well-known and admired for their effortless, boho chic. So when they took on the Mother’s Day Design Challenge, and each redecorated their own bedrooms with curtains and blinds from Hillarys, we were eager to pick up a few tips. Here are our favourite words of design wisdom from the pair…Pearl is a self-confessed lover of pink. But not just any shade of pink will do.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
