Take your gallery wall into 3 dimensions
|Jamie Hawkesworth / Vogue|
Vogue rounds up great advice from interior designers and stylists in “The New Way to Build a Gallery Wall: Go 3D.” The idea may not be so new as they say, but the advice from the likes of Lilly Bunn, Philip Mitchell, John Derian, and Emily Henderson is sound and mucho welcome.
Speaking of Emily Henderson…
You know who I mean: That perky, petite blonde from HGTV whose Style book everybody loves to love? Well, I love her blog post about “Styling the Perfect Window Shot.” You might recognize the photo from her book, but the blank slate she began with—and the nifty fast-action transformation slideshow cum video—will be a revelation.
Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover gets curvy dose of reality

Not that I’ll ever like the idea of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue (or—God forbid!—buy it), but I couldn’t help but cheer that a plus-size woman finally made its cover. Actually, at size 14, I wouldn’t truly call model Ashley Graham “plus-size.” She’s the size of the average American woman, and what I wouldn’t give to be a 14 again! But better than the pictures are her story in the Daily Beast and her TED talk, “Plus-Size? More Like My Size.”
Image of the week: the dance of happiness
Technically, these are molecules of the protein myosin dragging a ball of endorphins along an active filament into the inner part of the brain's parietal cortex. Did you get all that? Translation: It's the process which produces feelings of happiness. I can't pronounce it, let alone explain it, but just watching it does, indeed, make me happy.
I hope it works for you and you have a happy weekend!
