Best of the WebDSHashtags


by Grace Bonney

Waiting to announce the next hashtag challenge has been so hard for me, because we’re finally tackling my all-time favorite design detail: STRIPES! There’s not a room or corner of our home that doesn’t embrace a good stripe in some way and I think it’s almost impossible to go wrong when you’re dealing with such a bold and classic print. (I even tried to design a stripe tattoo, but it kept looking like a barcode. Whoops.) So for this month’s hashtag challenge, we would love to see YOUR favorite stripes. Whether it’s a photo of your bedding at home, a great couch in a shop or beautiful street art, we’d love to see your photos of the best stripes around town. Just share your photo online with the hashtag #DSStripes and we’ll feature our favorites on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and, at the end of the month, right here on D*S. I can’t wait to see how long it takes me to want to add even more stripes to our home after seeing all of your photos.

Julia and I are headed back to Brooklyn tomorrow for the Food Book Fair and then next week…we get to meet our new foster dog! We’re fostering this sweet rescue pup and, if it works out, she’ll become a new member of our family. Until Monday, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Also, thank you again for all of the incredibly kind comments and emails after this week’s essay about fear. I’m still reading them all (some more than once) and they are truly appreciated. xo, grace
