We can definitely appreciate the link between art and the written word, and thankfully there's an exhibit to help us do so. Co-curators Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld and Christine Messineo have just celebrated the opening of their show Merci Mercy, which is filled with avant-garde pieces that allow viewers to visualize text. Stop by the gallery from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. until February 17 at 980 Madison Avenue. (Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld)
We already love the bohemian label Haute Hippie, but now we've got a reason to "love them more." The brand is offering a "Love You More" Valentine's Day theme box that includes a shade-appropriate dress and a new necklace, complete with a heart charm. Or you can go for the Candy Gram, a package filled with customized M&Ms and a coupon. If you're feeling lucky, try to win them both by tweeting a photo of yourself that represents love, and the hashtag #hippielove. (Haute Hippie)
Wait, stop pinning! Rue Magazine, our go-to for major interior design inspo, just launched a brand-new site. So, what does that mean for us? Less time spent on Pinterest, and more time dreaming up ways to redesign our apartments…starting now. (Rue Mag)
You've got to see this: Girls star Allison Williams can totally play the duchess. Watch her act as Kate Middleton in a Funny Or Die video, and then check out her more recent portrayal on Jimmy Kimmel Live. (Huffington Post)
Studio apartment owners, rejoice! The people who live in those giant townhouses (equipped with elevators) are actually jealous of you. Seriously. We don't know about you, but we can think of plenty of ways to make use of those extra rooms. (The New York Observer)
