I did it for three months awhile back (and decluttering at the same time) and it was liberating, freeing, refreshing. We have a new baby but I am thinking it is time to do it again.

interesting article. But sadly ironic to me because most of my friends who still live in or around the nyc area have either been axed or feel it coming.

I don't a recommendation for a specific immersion blender, but I can recommend that buy one like the cuisinart pictured that is metal down where the blade is. Mine is plastic and it melted in the soup. I don't know what possessed them to make that part plastic.

Thanks so much for this post. I went to Cooper Union (a few blocks up from here) and used to pass by this building daily for 5 years. I always thought it was abandoned and am so glad to hear this story. so cool.

Apartment Therapy New York | NY Good Questions: Where Can I Purchase This Vanity?

is it a suburban thing? I remember growing up a lot of my mom's friends had them in their houses. I think they are expensive too. Yes, creepy. And I didn't realize they had no face. Very weird.

I agree that maybe only covering the bottom sash of the windows would be nice to still be able to see the muntins in the upper sash. What about a roman shade in a natural material like jute or bamboo with a 'top down' option. That will give you privacy when you are relaxing if you want it but still let light in over the top. Try smithandnoble.com. And I would get a separate shade for each window, mounted inside, so you still get the see the architectural features of the windows. good luck!

Maybe PB more so than C&B, but they both have a style that is more broadly appealing and maybe better for people who have a really hard time with 'styling' their house. Where I start to twitch is when I go into people's homes and they've tried recreate the catalogs in every room. Aaack. I am still not on board with all the furniture made out of MDF but it seems to prevail almost everywhere you go these days. And I almost never pay full price for anything from either store. I just can't get myself to do it. I have to say the PB books are some of my favorites and I recommend them as a starting point to family, friends and clients who feel they have no ability in decorating.

I had mixed feelings about Blueprint but grew to really like it. It did as others have mentioned appeal to a 'middle' (for lack of a better word) generation and men too. And although I loved Domino when it first came out, I find that I can afford very little of what they now put in it (they did the same thing with Lucky, at first it was a great source of affordable fun fashion but now has way too many ridiculously priced things in it). So Blueprint replaced Domino as my favorite. I will miss Blueprint and I wish everyone who was layed off at MSLO the best in their future endeavors.

breathtaking, like most of their designs. And what a great gift for someone who has 'everything'.

I like the new names. Thanks for the explanation. It's fun to hear the thought process. I especially like the fonts associated with each new name.

Also in Germany, Munich to be exact, at the Nymphenburg Palace you can find the same end grain wood floors. Uneven but stunning and going on 200 years old.

Before I read the text I thought it was a plant stand. Could look sweet with small pots of basil, rosemary and thyme on it.

Shaklee Get Clean products hands down the best out of everything I have tried. And you don't have those odd scents (at least I think they are weird) that Methods products produce.

Shaklee's products are also greatly concentrated so you are creating less waste for landfills.

Instead of installing those dreadful bi-fold doors on my closet, I installed a curtain. I attached the curtain rod brackets to the underside of the door jamb. The brackets had little screws on them to hold the rod in place that worked well, even though they were meant to be installed on a wall. I got everything from Target.

Let me confuse you more. I have had the most luck with Ben Moore's Super White. Get a few sample pots and paint them next to each other (3' x 3' usually works) and then pick which one you think looks best in your room. Look at it in different light (natural vs. lamps) and different times of the day.

Unless I decide to use my market umbrella to till my flower beds, I'll never buy one for more than $40. We bought one at BJ's Wholesale (similar to Sam's Club) 6 years ago that still works and looks great. And we've left it outside for 6 years as well, in the rain, snow and 1" hail storms. :) Happy dining al fresco to all!

These carbon filament bulbs (1890 Thomas Edison replica) don't need an adapter. They're not cheap, but look great. Come in 30, 40 and 60 watts, I think.
