Perfect! It’s a word we use much too easily (and lazily) in the magazine industry. “____ makes a perfect summer appetizer. ____ is this season’s perfect paint color.” Editors tend to use perfect as shorthand for something that’s the very best, very good, or sometimes just OK. But by overusing this perfectly acceptable word, are we in danger of eroding its meaning? We have high standards for our stories and photography in the magazine, but most of the time I am actually searching for imperfection rather than the opposite.

CREATIVE KID’S DECOR Spaceships, rainbows, and a whole lot of pattern: In a kid’s room, anything goes. And everything goes together when it all shares the same bright color palette. That’s the idea behind the debut collection of children’s bedding, throw pillows, rugs, and wall decals from Kid Made Modern, the brand that got its start with arts and crafts kits. The line’s designer, Todd Oldham, says, “I hope the pieces inspire kids to personalize their rooms in exciting ways.” Prices range from $15 pillowcases to $350 rugs (5'×8'); GOOP X CB2 Fans of Gwyneth Paltrow’s brand of cool can now bring even more of her style home.
