What events not to miss this weekend, from sales to exhibitions to open houses.

"Rustic chic" is a phrase that's gets batted around design blogs all the time, but it's a bit of an enigma to actually capture. Sure, it's easy enough to parcel out the meaning: You're looking for a blend of part earthy substance, part luxurious style.

Whether teardrops or raindrops, I don't think I'd mind them so much if they came in all shades of the rainbow. Wouldn't that make for a far prettier storm or crying jag? I'd say so. And to prove my point, have a look at these colorful wall tears: Yes, that's not a typo. Wall. Tears. Why?
