hot mess

so today i read an interesting article in the new york times called " how this half lives." mark rozzo explores the newest design publications and what a hot mess they are. and thats in a good way. there are no stylists at these photo shoots, just the everyday surroundings of everyday people. the selby blog is definitely the jump off to the messy trend. now there is also apartmento, an interiors magazine to inspire those looking to achieve the lived in look. apartmento will be hosting a pop up restaurant at the international contemporary furniture fair in new york next month. hope to see you there! check out the new york times article here.

come together right now

this could be war. has launched a guerilla marketing campaign
which will be used to "create a buzz" by slapping stickers
on cars, magazines and people.
i loved the stickers until i spotted the one that states:
"the contents of this magazine
have already been blogged
about 3 months ago,
save your money and read"
in a period where magazines are struggling to stay
afloat due to the rise of digital media,
the ad
will run in close to 100 magazines this year
stating that "during the 12-year life of google,
magazine readership actually increased 11 percent"
and that
"people aren't giving up swimming,
just because they also enjoy surfing."
you go magazines.
even though i am a blogger and love the cool hunter,
i simply cannot imagine life without magazines.
