The BLANDA BLANK, a simple stainless steel mixing bowl, literally can set things on fire. See the evidence below.</p> <div class="widget html-widget w60" data-widget-guid="ktRCHHylCDl" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/html_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="html_widget"><iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Frichard.walter.792%2Fvideos%2F1476448169085045%2F&amp;show_text=0&amp;width=225" width="225" height="400" style="border: none; overflow: hidden;" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowtransparency="true" allowfullscreen="true"></iframe></div> <p>After innocently munching on grapes out of the BLANDA BLANK&nbsp;on a sunny day in Sweden,&nbsp;Richard Walter noticed smoke rising out of the bowl.

Unless you go with a document full of research, the ginormous showroom can feel way too overwhelming and you might end up with products you will have to return. Well soon all that is going to change. Thanks to a collaboration with Apple, the Swedish retailer is working to create an app that will let you see if its products will work in your space before even hitting the store.</p> <p>"This will be the first augmented reality app that allows you to make reliable buying decisions," shared&nbsp;IKEA's digital transformation manager&nbsp;Michael Valdsgaard to <em><a href="https://www.engadget.com/2017/06/19/ikea-improves-ar-shopping-apple/" target="_blank">Digital.di</a></em>. After taking photos of their homes,&nbsp;users will be able to position products with millimeter precision and sizing&nbsp;into the image. You can even buy items that work straight from the app afterwards.</p> <p>The new tech&nbsp;may be released closed to the new iOS 11 debut with 500 to 600 products to try out in your home. In the meantime, we'll have to stick with using our imaginations to see if we can fit a new KLIPPAN into our space.</p> Mon, 19 Jun 2017 15:16:03 -0700 http://www.lonny.com/Scout+Out/articles/yfwyBKIKq9f/IKEA+Apple+AR+App+Will+Change+Way+Shop yfwyBKIKq9f DIY To Try: Effortlessly Chic Wall Hanging <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="plWc4iJfbf-" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="plWc4iJfbf-"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/qXLTQvQqUDtx.jpg" title="DIY image" alt="Courtesy of No Home Without You." /></div> <div class="below"><em>Courtesy of No Home Without You.</em></div> </div> </div> <p>If you&rsquo;ve ever collected pretty sticks from the park or beach in hopes of finding an artistic way to display them, here you have it.

Did you arrange with&nbsp;the post office to hold your mail? Did you pack everything you actually need? Well one question you should&nbsp;never forget to ask is if you arranged for someone to take care of your plants. If you have invested in larger houseplants like fiddle leaf figs, there's a big chance that&nbsp;two weeks sans care can be deadly for your plant friends. However there are a few resilient plants out there that can survive without any t.l.c.</p> <p>We called on the team from <a href="https://www.leonandgeorge.com/" target="_blank">L&eacute;on &amp; George</a>, the S.F.-based plant delivery company, to give&nbsp;us the dirt. Their top picks for long lasting plants? Zanzibar Gems and Snake Plants. "They are both great because of how little care they require overall," says co-founder Ron Radu. "We often suggest them for forgetful owners that don't water often, which makes them particularly suited for those going away on vacation as well."</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60" data-widget-guid="bkbQoY_JNYN" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="bkbQoY_JNYN"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/luH8bTYrdW6x.jpg" title="zz" alt="The Houseplants That Can Survive Your Summer Vacation" /></div> <div class="below attribution">via Pinterest/Maia Then.</div> </div> </div> <p>"The Zanzibar Gem (aka the ZZ plant) can go many weeks and sometimes months without water," adds Radu. "Both plants also come in many different sizes from small desktop plants to large floor plants so there's some thing available for everyone."</p> <p>If you're going away for a while, the L&eacute;on &amp; George team left us with a few plant care tips. "If you&rsquo;re leaving for a week or less, a good soaking will be all you need. You normally don&rsquo;t want to oversaturate the soil with water, but this is an exception," they say. "As always, be sure not to leave any standing water in the saucer, as that may result in pests or root rot."</p> <p>"If you&rsquo;re leaving for a couple of weeks, after watering,&nbsp;try putting some moss, leaves, wood chips, or pebbles on top of the exposed soil. Basically any natural material than can keep moisture in," they add. Leaving for longer? "You&rsquo;ll have to cover the plant in a plastic bag to help keep moisture in," they advise. "Make sure the bag sits above the top of the pot, and keep it off the foliage with some sticks. Cut some slits in the bag to make sure the plant can still breathe."</p> <p>While the care may take a little extra time, you can relax on your vacay knowing your plant friends are safe and sound.</p> <p></p> Thu, 15 Jun 2017 10:59:33 -0700 http://www.lonny.com/See+It+Now/articles/ssbIhIjDdod/Houseplants+Can+Survive+Summer+Vacation ssbIhIjDdod Pinterest Board Of The Week: O u t d o o r s p a c e s <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="3mXBSHaaPmC" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="3mXBSHaaPmC"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/aVLwQxClL8Ax.jpg" title="Pinterest image" alt="via Pinterest/Loom &amp; Kiln." /></div> <div class="below"><em>via Pinterest/Loom &amp; Kiln.</em></div> </div> </div> <p>Why put a couple lonely chairs outside when you could create an all-out, luxe bohemian lounge space instead?

And, while it&rsquo;s always great to see familiar faces, we&rsquo;re particularly jazzed about the <em>new</em> names that have been added to the roster.

The home retailer just revealed that they will be pairing with Swedish perfume brand Byredo. What they will be releasing? For now, the brands are staying mum. But the collection will explore the connection between scent and the home.</p> <p>&ldquo;I know most people have associations of visiting their grandmother&rsquo;s house &ndash; whether it&rsquo;s her perfume or the flowers or her cooking &ndash; smell is a very relevant part of the home," says Ben Gorham, founder of Byredo. "It creates a sense of comfort and security. We seldom speak of it and I think this project enforces that as well: getting people to think about smell.&rdquo;</p> <p>&ldquo;We&rsquo;re trying to develop a ton of smells enforcing the idea that everyone has a different relationship to it, and nothing is right or wrong,&rdquo; Gorham&nbsp;explains. &ldquo;I think we&rsquo;re working on using scent to communicate emotions and tell stories of people, culture and design. It&rsquo;s a layer we&rsquo;ve imagined can add a very intimate experience to this scale that IKEA works in.&rdquo;</p> <p>While we don't know exactly what cool project the two brands are producing, we are definitely excited to get a whiff of it.</p> Thu, 8 Jun 2017 14:59:24 -0700 http://www.lonny.com/Scout+Out/articles/UlZobBd5erW/IKEA+X+Byredo+Will+Transform+Home+Signature UlZobBd5erW Pinterest Board Of The Week: M o d e r n f a r m h o u s e <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="wgq4spOJEqX" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="wgq4spOJEqX"><img src="http://www1.pictures.lonny.com/mp/wsb4yXfnhyQx.jpg" title="Pinterest image" alt="via Pinterest/Angie Wendricks." /></div> <div class="below"><em>via Pinterest/Angie Wendricks.</em></div> </div> </div> <p>Fuel your dreams of whisking yourself away to a vacation cottage in the country with Pinterest board &ldquo;<a href="https://www.pinterest.com/squidiam/m-o-d-e-r-n-f-a-r-m-h-o-u-s-e/">M O D E R N F A R M H O U S E</a>&rdquo; by Angie Wendricks of County Road Living.
