Last December, as we faced a new year and a fresh start, AD asked some of our most trusted designers which trends they hoped would disappear by 2017. The answers reached far and wide, spanning everything from furniture silhouettes to room schemes. Now that 2017 is halfway over, we're checking in on some of the most despised to see if they're going strong, on the way out, or gone at last. "I'm over spaces being too minimal and cold," designer Shelley Johnstone said in December.
The famous purple apartment her character inhabited on Friends may have inspired decades of interior design, but it turns out Courteney Cox has serious style in real life, too. And if you're a mega-fan of the actress, good news: Beginning this Tuesday, you can own a piece of her Malibu home, thanks to One Kings Lane. After becoming a frequent visitor to London (where her Irish boyfriend lives), Cox decided to swap out some of her beloved furnishings for new, Anglo-inspired ones.
When Josh and Ivy Elrod, New York transplants to Nashville, decided to open their second shop in the hip city, the duo knew they didn't want a traditional storefront. They already run Wilder, a popular source for off-the-beaten-path designs, and saw their second location as a chance to branch out even further. Enter Wilder Etudes, a concept shop that revolves around a seasonally changing theme, similar to the beloved Story in New York.
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".
