Some of the Best Easter Eggs Hidden in Sites Across The Web

Typically when we talk about things that are “hidden” in websites, we’re referring to something malicious—data-hoovering cookies, for example, or massive amounts of malware.

Ignore These Outdated Interior Design Myths

Like fashion, interior design styles are both cyclical and constantly evolving. (Except it’s much less depressing seeing the model of your family’s old sofa in a vintage furniture shop than it is seeing a young person wearing a (19)90s “costume” for “retro” day at school.)Read more...

How to Create Vignettes That Really Pull a Room Together

Back when we were allowed to freely visit other people in their homes, you may have noticed that some had what was seemingly an area of knickknacks or other pieces of “decor” grouped together that somehow...worked.

Researchers Get a Deeper Look at Some of the Oldest Color Photos Ever

Scientists have re-examined the creations of one of the earliest color photographers, Gabriel Lippmann, who used no pigments or dyes of any kind in his work.

New Photo Colorizing Process Factors In How Skin Reacts to Light For Incredibly Lifelike Results

Film stocks from a century ago weren’t just limited to only capturing details in black and white; they could only capture a limited band of the color spectrum, resulting in images of famous individuals that didn’t accurately represent how they actually looked. So a new approach to colorization using AI finally takes…Read more...

Why the Agua Caliente Casinos are embracing art as a way to draw in visitors

Look at the location tag for Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa Rancho Mirage on Instagram and there are loads of recent pictures of people posing in front of a desert fan palm tree rising up from the desert landscape at sunset. However, it’s not a real desert scene, but rather a new mural from artist Autumn Martino that sits next to one of the resort’s elevators near the hotel lobby. The piece is one of several seasonal installations that have gone up as the resort seeks to use art as a way to not...

This is a detail from Nicolas Party’s mural “Trees for Children” which was just installed along a 207-foot corridor at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles as the latest project by the New York-based nonprofit RxART.

How to Turn a Used Bookcase Into a Functional Kitchen Island

Sitcoms (usually) have the best kitchens. Of course, that’s because they’re fake, missing an entire wall, and designed to make it easy for the cameras to get the angles they need. In addition to a swinging door from the kitchen to the neighboring room, one of the other sitcom kitchen staples is a kitchen island. Read more...

Desert X, the expansive outdoor art biennial in the Coachella Valley opening Friday, March 12,  is one of the first large scale public California arts events to take place in the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic. And while the artworks that will be exhibited across a 40-mile stretch of Coachella Valley weren’t conceived in reaction to the global crisis, the two-month long public art event can’t ignore it either. “It’s not a show about the pandemic, but inevitably it is a show shaped by one...

One of these Southern California artists could see his design on Pabst Blue Ribbon beer cans

Having your work displayed in a fancy gallery or even a museum may be great, but for these two local artists, getting it on a cold can of beer will do just fine.
