Mike Diamond (Mike D of the Beastie Boys) wanted a Brooklyn-inspired toile wallpaper for the walls of his Cobble Hill brownstone. In 2012, he worked with designers Vincent J. Ficarra and Adela Qersaqi at Revolver New York, and John Sherman of local manufacturer Flavor Paper to produce a design that pays tribute to Brooklyn in a manner that looks, from a distance, like a traditional eighteenth centre French toile — a printed textile with small scenes that make up an overall pattern.
If you are a fan of wearable art, then you will want to know about this partnering of the Edie Parker acrylic clutch bag brand with legendary visual artist, Marilyn Minter, in the form of two stunning collectible hand bags
The Jean clutch handbag (in white pearlescent with silver kiss-lock hardware closure) features the artist’s Glitter Mouth, while the Carol clutch (in nude pearlescent with gold kiss-lock hardware closure) features Minter’s Wet Kiss — two surreal and sexy artworks by the celebrated artist.

My family has not always been the most in-tune with my personal tastes when choosing Birthday and Holiday gifts, so I got in the habit of asking them to get me cute socks. This is why my sock drawer is stuffed to near-overflowing with enough cute socks to cover the feet of a small army. Truth be told, every pair gets worn eventually, because socks are one of the most perfect gifts you can receive. Two guys who are also hip to that fact are the ones who created the Sock Card from InStitches.
Never underestimate the power of a fantastically designed display to draw people into your booth. Image is important, and the owner of Dash of Pep clothing and accessories got everything right — starting with her foundation color of an irresistible Hot Pink with lots of pink accents and pink props!
When I was a kid, household appliances were not designed to also be cute, just because they were meant to be used by children. Specifically, I recall a humidifier that we had to have in the bedroom I shared with my brother when we were probably 3 and 4 years old respectively, because he suffered from asthma. That thing looked like a spacecraft from War of The Worlds — and while it might have relievedmy brother’s breathing difficulties, it was pure nightmare-fuel for me.
If only Crane humidifiers had existed in the sixties, my parent’s might have been inclined to purchase a model from their Adorable line — featuring, well, adorable animal-shaped, multi-function humidifiers — thus sparing my tender psyche from an enduring trauma. Because, seriously, how darn cute is a little pink Unicorn?
