Here’s How To Decorate Your Home-Based on What You Wear (or Would If You Could)

Think your home needs more style, but aren’t sure what to do? The problem may merely be that you haven’t found exactly which style of decor speaks to you.

From midcentury modern to maximalism to modern farmhouse, home design styles abound, but it’s not always easy to know which camp you fall into. Here’s one easy way to tell: Check what you’re wearing—or what you would wear if you had tons of cash to burn and swanky soirees on your schedule where you could flaunt your fancy duds.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s latest weapon against COVID-19? Art.

On Wednesday, Garcetti announced a new initiative called the L.A. Mask Print Project, in which L.A. County artists can submit designs for posters bearing the public health message of the moment: Wear a mask. Posters chosen for the city’s coronavirus website can be downloaded for free, and Garcetti is encouraging local businesses and residents to display them.
