10 Ways to Spend the Weekend in Style

December 10-12, 2010

Only two weeks left until Christmas! Whether you're still shopping or you're totally spent on holiday activities, we've got some suggestions for ways to spend your weekend.

  1. Check out the surprising movie hit that's generating Oscar buzz — The King's Speech. Sure, the performances are great, but if you're a design lover, you might be most impressed by the decor.
  2. If (like us) you're nowhere near finished with your holiday shopping, check out our national sales calendar for good deals on gifts.
  3. Need a few more gift ideas? Check out Maxwell's lists of Gifts for Him, Gifts for Her, and Gifts for Children.
  4. Stay up to date on the latest color trends by checking out Pantone's color of 2011 — a reddish pink called (strangely) Honeysuckle!
  5. Catch up on your design history with Apartment Therapy's Retrospect column by Anna Hoffman — this week she takes an in-depth look at the classic Cherner Chair.
  6. Couldn't make it to Miami for Art Basel? No problem — Annie Werbler's been posting top picks from the show, so you can stay in touch with art world trends from the comfort of your couch.
  7. If you're already getting organized in preparation for the New Year, pick up a 2011 calendar to reward yourself! For recommendations, click here, here, and here.
  8. Can you donate $5 to public schools? Help us reach our goal to raise $10,000 for classrooms through DonorsChoose.
  9. Feel a little spent by holiday activities? Stop worrying so much about your to-do list, and take some time to relax at home.
  10. If you're looking for a fun way to spend your relaxation time, catch up on Apartment Therapy's latest house tours.
