Late last year, popular designer, Emily Henderson, mentioned that she's over brass finishes and digging chrome lately. This from the gal whose blog used to be called "The Brass Petal"? That's a major departure for her, but she might have a point. I'm glad design is past the love affair it had with brushed nickel in the early 2000s, and while I personally still love a little gold glitz, I feel like I can maybe get down with shiny silver chrome, too.
For me, shopping for decor is a weird, paradoxical experience. I find myself wanting to have unique things. And yet, I'm the first one to share my sources when I find amazing stuff at chain stores. I think that's because a) I'm not in high school, so I've fully come to terms with the idea that copying is a compliment, and b) When companies are getting it right, especially in an unexpected area, they deserve some love.
If you're a sucker for a good celeb home makeover, then you're probably a fan of Donna Garlough's work. As style director for Joss & Main, she's worked her magic on the homes of big names in young Hollywood like Julianne Hough, Whitney Port and Katherine Schwarzenegger, among others. But 2018 is going to be a big year for the woman behind the moodboards. Garlough is releasing her first book, "Your Home, Your Style", with Rizzoli in March.
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".
