I loved seeing the Harry Allen Roller Stop on Watch What Happens Live! last night. I also loved that instead of a three-part reunion, all the Real Housewives of Miami got was an hour-long episode of WWHL, because like all shows based in Miami, it sucked. I call it “The Miami Vice Curse.” No show based there will ever succeed, unless it manages to come up with a cooler theme song than Miami Vices’, which is impossible. But I digress, as usual. Anyway, I’m always noticing the weird changing of accessories in Cohen’s cluttered clubhouse, and this one was right next to his head for the entire episode. My friend Kristen is dying to get her hands on that colorful encyclopedia set; I love his swivel chairs. I wonder if Charo gave him those maracas?
By the way, this winter at a cancer benefit, I put five raffle tickets into a bucket and my friend’s cousin Owen put in one. The prize was tickets to Watch What Happens Live. I lost. I’m still pissed.

I know a major round of holidays just ended and the last thing anyone wants to think about is another holiday. I also know that a lot of people are not too gung-ho with what will soon be coming our way…Valentine’s Day. Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, but the fact is V-day is approaching and whether you are super, semi or hope to be chummy with your love he/she probably wants a small token of appreciation whether you like it or not. So, I thought I would collect some of my favorite Design Public Valentine’s Day-ish gift ideas…
For the guy/gal you feel a super strong attachment to, one of these may symbolize your love. You’d be surprised by how many pieces we have of two people attached to one another…
1.) A Hybrid-Home Anatomical Print:
A few of our designers were kind enough to give some treasured product to NOTCOT.org for their holiday giveaway. The loot: A set of Harry Allen Bulb Candles, a Harry Allen Rabbit’s Foot Keychain, and a pair of CAKE Octopi Cups.
