This IKEA Line From Lady Gaga and Beyonce's Stylist Bea Akerlund Is Super Quirky. Between a major update to the beloved FRAKTA bag coming in 2018 and a new line inspired by '70s textile patterns, there's been a lot to keep IKEA fans excited these last few months. But the Scandinavian powerhouse's latest collection may just be its most daring yet. The brand announced it's teaming up with stylist Bea Åkerlund for a new furniture line, debuting in March 2018, and you'll want to prepare yourself, IKEA lovers, because these pieces are a tad quirkier than your average BILLY bookcase.
Dutch Boy's 2018 Color of the Year Is a Popular "Greige" Hue. Paint brand Dutch Boy just announced their 2018 Color of the Year and it's (drumroll, please) Sandstone Tint (441-2DB). This "greige" — a.k.a. a blend of gray and beige — is a departure from the bold hues we've seen from other predictions this past year. According to the company, it's "a hue that nods to the simplicity of the past, while also making a modern, color-confident statement that looks to the future." This shade is part of Dutch Boy's "Quest" palette, which features earth tones that are "as classic as they are sophisticated."
Unpopular Opinion: Clawfoot Tubs Are Simply the Worst. Clawfoot bathtubs are beautiful; there's no doubt about it. Reassuringly solid, with lovely antique detailing, it's not hard to see why so many bathroom renovators are wooed by their winsome charms. In fact, we've reached an interior design moment in which one would be hard-pressed to find a recently remodeled bathroom that isn't designed around a delightfully quirky vintage bathtub — call it the Joanna Gaines effect. However, we have a hunch that this what's-old-is-new-again fad is on its way out, for one simple reason: we're starting to remember why "old-fashioned" tubs fell out of common usage in the first place. Clawfoot tubs became a part of our collective design vocabulary as a luxury item of the Victorian era. By the 1920's, they were de rigeur, but by the midcentury, they were outdated, replaced with the more efficient built-in tubs of the 60s and 70s. Now, we're not encouraging a return to the shallow rectangular constructions many of us grew up with, but there are a few reasons that the clawfoot tub is not the bathroom design panacea it appears.
