From time to time, we like to dip into the Domino archives and revisit some of our favorite spaces. This story originally appeared in the December/January 2008 issue. When photographer and die-hard New Yorker Laura Resen packed up her airy urban loft and moved it all (plus her family) into a teensy rural farmhouse, she had what most of us don’t: designer Thomas O’Brien on speed-dial. His advice: make friends with color, texture—and clutter.
Few situations in the world of luxury hotels prompt as much anticipation as the relaunch of a venerated grande dame. Nowhere is this more true, arguably, than in Paris – where a few weeks ago Rosewood unveiled the new Hôtel de Crillon (rosewoodhotels.com; from €1,100), shuttered since 2013.
What to do when you’re so well‑travelled – and well-connected – that your own knowledge supersedes that of your members-only luxury travel club? If you’re Mona Khalil and Rana Dababneh, you start your own consultancy: Pomalo (pomalotravel.com; bespoke itineraries price on request), a Dubai and Amman-based, small-scale, all-bespoke luxury travel design company (though they accept clients from all over the world).
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".
