There are many wonderful elements that fall brings to the table. For some of us here at Decoist, the magic happens when the season’s top color palettes begin to emerge. With the new collections comes an array of beautiful product photos to peruse, and it’s easy to see some definite palettes emerging. In today’s post, our inspiration comes mainly from Scandinavian design, where interesting color combinations are in no short supply.
When your guest bath is also your children’s powder room, it can be tricky to create a kid-friendly environment that’s also welcoming to your guests. Bath products and toys may fill the counters and ledges, and good luck explaining to your little ones that the fancy soap is only for grown-ups! The solution: sticking with classy yet colorful decor that’s pleasing to everyone. Then again, good storage never hurts!
I’ve always admired those who can throw together an artistic vignette at a moment’s notice. Someone who can use a few clippings from the backyard to create a stunning centerpiece, or capture the spirit of the season with a bowl of lemons! One of these resourceful people is my mother, and her eclectic design mix of old and new never fails to capture my attention. For today’s post, I photographed some of my favorite decorative elements in her home.
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".
