TV Review: “House of Cards” and “The Kominsky Method” on Netflix

The final season of “House of Cards” could be subtitled “The Ghost Of You.” Kevin Spacey was fired from the series after sexual assault allegations surfaced, but the character he plays (Frank Underwood) is still very much part of the show — even though the actor playing him is nowhere to be seen in the six episodes. Instead, the show focuses on Claire Underwood, Frank’s wife, who became president toward the end of season five after Frank resigned in the wake of impending impeachment hearings. F...

Wonder Ventures aims to dazzle L.A. startups with its new seed-stage fund

Dustin Rosen thinks L.A. has a problem, aside from its famously car-choked highways. There aren’t enough investors willing to write small checks. Why not? The way he sees it, most of the so-called micro venture funds have grown their funds to the size of traditional venture firms, and are making bigger bets as a result. Meanwhile, some of the angel investors that Venice-based Snap was expected to produce have not materialized, owing to the company’s disappointing performance on the public market...

Peaceful reading :: A Time to Keep Silence ~ Patrick Leigh Fermor

We are now in recovery from the excitement of a couple of Ikea runs, choosing the sofa, having it delivered in sixteen boxes two days later when we thought it would take weeks, spending an entire Sunday building it, having three washers left over and not getting divorced, and now sitting (or rather reclining) on it. We bought a 'Gronlid' combination in the end with the chaise option at one end, say no more, I adore it, bring on winter, I'll cope. And I have a little pile of peaceful, mindful re...

Wave Hill

Tucked just off the beaten path in the Bronx, are the public gardens known as Wave Hill. We took a little day trip up (it's really only about 15 away minutes by car) a week ago and had a really great time. Wave Hill reminds me so much of the Huntington Library in Pasadena, CA, just on a much smaller scale. It overlooks the Hudson River and that's NJ in the background.  We got there right when it opened and the crowds were relatively small.  Kate brought her friend, Felicity and here they are wit...

Tools & Craft #107: In Furniture Design, What's Old is New Again

This summer I'd gone to the Museum of the City of New York, to see the absolutely fabulous Stanley Kubrick exhibit. At the same time I stopped in at a small exhibit of the design work of the architect Rosario Candela. Candela's name is still dropped in New York real estate circles; he is the architect behind some of Manhattan's oldest luxury apartment buildings.The show included a settee c. 1926 that really caught my eye. It was made by a Queens-based company called "Company of Master Craftsman"...

Artist revamps dingy interior of a 1962 Airstream with vibrant florals

While most Airstream renovations tend to go for a minimalist aesthetic to create the illusion of more space, surface pattern designer Bonnie Christine used her love of florals to convert her 1962 Airstream trailer into a gorgeous home on wheels. To transform the formerly drab interior, Bonnie lined various accent walls in wallpaper with a forest green background and light pink flowers to add a fresh and vibrant flair to the incredibly compact 150-square-foot tiny home. Bonnie and her husband b...

The 10 most fashionable US cities with the best street style

It is said that the US is a melting pot, and one place that is clearly apparent is in our style. On the streets, people express their histories, culture, opinions, and ideas through what they wear.

An Address in Bloomsbury ~ Alec Forshaw

On that recent trip to London, and wandering through Bloomsbury to lunch and revisit The Lost Words exhibition, I walked along Great Ormond Street with Adele Geras and Helen Rappaport and took them into the children's hospital to see the chapel.  I'm afraid it's exquisite beauty and peace passed me by as a young student nurse taking children to services on a Sunday afternoon.   It seemed over-the-top and garish to me in the 1970s, but I go in every time I am passing now and it never cease...

Yes, Avicii’s death should be a wake-up call – and not just for EDM

The death of 28-year-old star producer/DJ Avicii comes as a shock to many. It’s also easy to reduce to another example of party world excess, or to say it’s just about big-money EDM and pop. But it should be a bigger wake up call than that. To me, the most alarming reaction I’ve heard from the electronic music world is, “oh, who’s that?” – not from people who genuinely don’t know, but from those who are making a show of pretending not to know. And the reason that should be unsettling is, it al...

House of Hackney William Morris Collection

House of Hackney’s HOH x William Morris wallpaper collection brings the dash and daring of the iconic Victorian textile designer to any interior. Received somewhat dubiously during his time, Morris’ Wallpaper and textile designs were extravagant and baroque. Awash with color, intricacy, and undulation, Morris’ designs were considered a bit much for the average Victorian home. Flying in the face of the maxim that says, “A wallpaper should be a background,” Morris’ work takes center stage—and H...

Top Home Trends for 2018 You Can’t Ignore

Home trends change like fashion. Every season there’s something new filling Pinterest boards and magazines, and it would be impossible to keep up with it all. After all, home improvements and changes can be costly and time-consuming, and no one wants to spend their life living in an unfinished home because they are always making changes to the décor. We like to enjoy our homes as they are once we’re happy, without feeling the need to follow trends and make changes all of the time. However, ...
