LA August: Barefoot Contessa, West Elm Pops the Question, Ikea's 2008 Catalog, The Marriott Bed, and The Hills Teaches Us A Lesson

In August, we got a lot of catalogues and watched a lot of TV. Or so it would seem: we asked for your take on the latest offerings from West Elm and Ikea. We also dissected the elements of Ina Garten's picture-perfect kitchen in the Hamptons, and discussed the mattress that the Marriott Hotel uses. But most importantly? We laughed, we cried, and we cheered when Heidi resolutely painted over Spencer's gift of a graffiti mural in their living room. Who cares if it's staged? That, and the ballad of Justin Bobby on dating labels made the whole season worth it.
