Is your bathroom so last year? Keep reading for some trend-forward paint color inspiration to upgrade your bathroom in the new year. As its name suggests, Icicles is a cool rendition of blue, bearing some likeness to grey, making it a fantastic new neutral color, perfect for the bathroom. Behr recommends pairing Icicles with Mortar, Pencil Sketch, and Tinted Ice. Speaking of new neutrals, Graylac, also by Behr, is a rich mix of grey and lilac that pairs well with both warm and cool tones.
Last year, I wrote (at length) about the far-reaching benefits of keeping plant-life in the bathroom – (see: shower plants) – and this year my stance on plants hasn’t changed much: exposure to greenery is good for your mood, energy level, and general health. Winter blues got you down? Channel your vacation-self with this sun and surf-inspired terrarium, idea courtesy of Sustain My Craft Habit.
So you’ve personalized your child’s bedroom, but what about their bathroom? Bathrooms are notorious for accidents, especially when you have kids, which is why it’s important to ensure the materials used in high traffic zones are durable. Granite countertops, for instance, can be easily stained and scratched, while a material such as Quartzite is scratch and stain-resistant and bears a similar look to granite.
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".
