MRS HINCH grew in popularity thanks to her cleaning hacks and all-grey interiors. But when she moved into Hinch Farm she decided to say goodbye to the uniformed grey interiors - and now it seems, so has everyone else. Taking to TikTok, Deanna Dunn , from the US, showed herself 'de-greying' her living room quickly as the trend comes to an end. In the short clip, Deanna showed her very grey living room, which featured a grey rug, coffee table, sofa, curtains, grey fireplace, and a collection of grey and white accessories to tie it all in. She said: "I wore my best grey outfit today in honour of de-greying my living room." First, Deanna began by stripping her accessories and removing her black floating shelves.

HBO’s House of the Dragon and Amazon Prime Video’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power . Photo-Illustration: Vulture; Photos by HBO and Prime Video In this era of video on demand, most streaming programmers have come to accept the Gospel According to Netflix: Audiences now watch TV shows when it’s convenient for them, and the specific time of day they arrive is irrelevant for streamers. This is why most streaming shows drop new episodes in the middle of the night, U.S. time; since we are all our own network schedulers now, deciding what to watch and when, there’s no reason to “program” new shows and movies for an optimal time of day. But the slightly different release patterns for Prime Video’s The Rings of Power and HBO’s House of the Dragon , along with some new Nielsen numbers, have had me thinking lately about the wisdom of the dogmatic approach pioneered by Netflix — and whether streamers should be thinking more about what time they release their original … [Read more...] about Dragons vs. Elves: Who Has the Better Release Strategy?
Shohreh Aghdashloo may be most recognizable by her deep, easily identifiable voice found in projects including The Flight Attendant , The Punisher , an Oscar-nominated role in House of Sand and Fog and an Emmy win for HBO 's House of Saddam . The actress, an Iranian American born in Tehran, fled to England before the Iranian Revolution in 1979, when she was 25. Aghdashloo talked to Newsweek about the tumult in her home country after the September 13 killing of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini by the morality police for failing to wear a hijab.

Sometimes, a book falls into a reader’s hands at the wrong time. Think of one you’ve put aside because you were too busy to tackle an ambitious project; perhaps there’s another you ignored after misjudging its contents by its cover. Maybe a novel was inaccessible or hadn’t yet been published at the precise stage in your life when it would have resonated most. But these connections can still be made later: In fact, one of the great, bittersweet pleasures of life is finishing a title and thinking about how it might have affected you—if only you’d found it sooner. From our vantage in the present, we can’t truly know if, or how, a single piece of literature would have changed things for us. But we can appreciate its power, and we can recommend it to others. Below are seven novels our staffers wish they’d read when they were younger. Black Thunder , by Arna Bontemps During the summer of 2020, I picked up a collection of letters the Harlem Renaissance writers Langston Hughes and … [Read more...] about The Books We Read Too Late—And That You Should Read Now
