Peggy Davis wants her 13-by-13-foot D.C. pied-à-terre to be a comfortable space where she can relax after a long day of work. She doesn’t use the studio for entertaining, so there is no need to conceal the bed, but she would like to incorporate a small seating area. Because it’s a rental, the paint and flooring can’t be changed, but Davis is hoping to replicate the feel of a luxury hotel suite while sticking to a tight budget.
Alexandra Hann wants to brighten the dark, dreary 20-by-29-foot basement of her split-level home in Columbia, Md. She is on a tight budget and wants a cozy, fun space where adults and young kids can watch television and play. She wants to keep the sectional and piano and add window treatments as well as storage for toys. The new design ideally would make the large open space feel more cohesive and comfortable.
Meredith Campbell moved into her Oakton, Va., home a little more than a year ago, and the 14-by-10-foot office is the last space she needs to decorate. She would like to paint the bookcases to brighten the room and wants a cozy study where she can store books and curl up to read, as well as a place for a workstation. Campbell is looking for recommendations for an area rug, lighting, window treatments and how to blend the sitting area with a home office.
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".
