Kelsey Cary says she’s just a good copycat. Long before she and her husband bought their house in 2014, the stay-at-home mom had pinned a photo of the exterior of a Georgia house that she’d fallen in love with — white brick, black windows, set back in the trees — to a board on Pinterest. After the Carys bought their house in Eastborough, Kan. — red brick, dark-green trim, set back in the trees, like something out of “Hansel and Gretel” — Cary called forth the Pinterest photo.
If you haven’t updated your bedroom in a while, you may find some elements have changed while you’ve been sleeping. The look today is more eclectic, says Katie Small, design center manager at Ethan Allen in Wichita. And most people don’t sleep under heavy down comforters, even as we head into the coldest days of winter, says Brenda Cody of Ferguson-Phillips, a Wichita homewares store. January is the ideal time to assess your bedroom and take steps to refresh it.
With all their stainless steel and slick surfaces, today’s kitchens can be rather clinical. But homeowners such as Matt and Nancy Michaelis add touches of color and whimsy that personalize the cool modernism. Here are five highlights of the Michaelis’ house in Wichita: 1. Gone from country: The kitchen had been done in warm Tuscan tones — faux marble, thatched ceiling and iron light fixtures painting a rich picture.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
