100 Dream buys: number 1 This series covers things that are somewhat more pricey than my 100 home must-haves, however, these are the pieces that I consider to be real objects of desire; things I have personally loved forever and a day. Some I own, most I dream of owning, but all I believe will be lifetime keepers and future classics. As such, I first saw Sebastian Herkner‘s exquisite Bell Table, designed for ClassiCon, at its Milan Furniture Fair debut in 2012.
Magnolia had its day a long time ago as a default colour choice for our walls, but white was always right when it came to the desire for a plain backdrop. However, no more! The New Neutrals are on their way…Neutrals are an essential part of any decorative arsenal, we need them as the soothing salve and balmy backdrop to the colour of ourselves and our lives.
What makes good interior design is of course wildly subjective, as taste is so intensely personal, but if the homeowner is at the heart of the process, then a happy interior solution is, I believe, always achievable; the challenge, of course, is getting to that point. As such, there is a fundamental conflict at the heart of most interior design shows on TV: the gulf between entertainment and information/education.
@mummyinmanolos Hmmm, interesting, hadn’t thought of it in terms of ‘manifesting my future’... instead I was rather depressed (when it was found in my parent’s attic) that it seemed as if my future was preordained...? I shall muse on this. Manifesting is WAY more positive!!
Since New Year I’ve been catching up on ‘life admin’. (What with being ‘At Large’ and all, I finally find I have time) It’s Monster to-do list territory. And arguably been crunching thru it. It’s just that my lists seem to be multiplying, not shrinking... what’s going on??!!
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".
