Justin Timberlake Launches Home Design Website
Homemint.com Offers Art, Furniture, Accents and Even Photography From J.T. Himself
Singer, dancer, actor, fashion designer, being one of the funniest Saturday Night Live hosts ever … is there anything Justin Timberlake can't do? We've yet to find one, and now he's adding home design guru to the list with the launch of his new website, Homemint.com.
Framed art, accessories like vases and tableware, glasses, baskets, bedding, bathroom linens and rugs are among the many goodies to be found at Homemint, which also includes a limited edition pair of framed photographs of New York City, taken by Timberlake himself.
How the site works (and thanks to Mashable.com for the heads up on the Homemint launch): it's customized for your personal design tastes, beginning with a series of choices you make when you sign up for the site. You're asked to choose your preferences from photos of various interior design options, and then when you visit the site, you'll always be met with suggestions based on your tastes.
Timberlake created the site in collaboration with Estee Stanley, who was a fashion stylist (and who worked with J.T.) before she moved into interior design. The two work largely with unknown designers for the site's goods, meaning you have access to pieces that won't show up in everyone's homes.
The site features home goods in four categories, including the Homemint Private Collection of textiles, bedding and towels; Collaboration, a line of accessories like baskets and pottery; Unique Finds, full of gorgeous, brightly colored rugs and various other odds and ends; and Art, with limited edition prints and the aforementioned NYC skyline shots from Timberlake.
As for prices, they're above what you'd pay for design pieces at Target, Ikea or HomeGoods, but you can snag discounts by paying for a Homemint.com membership, which costs $9.99 per month.
