We're plugging away at organizing an out-of-control power cord situation in our home. Now we've got 12 ways to hide computer cord clutter.
We're plugging away at organizing an out-of-control power cord situation in our home. We've now powered-through reviews and testing of cord storage boxes, cute outlet boxes, power stations for our phones/watches/etc.,, and power control central stations. And we're doing this from our kitchen, which for the better part of a year, has functioned as a home office, virtual classroom...
I'm learning that birds need houses + feeders & that different birds have different requirements--who knew? Here are 12 beautiful, modern birdhouses & feeders.
Just pecking away at 12 favorite modern birdhouses (and feeders) for spring, humming Bob Marley's Three Little Birds, "every little thing's, gonna be all right -- and wondering...will it? Will it actually be All Right? And is it also all right if I order not just one, but three birdhouses from Loll? They are sustainable and made from recycled...
We're eyeing 12 doormats that have our happy feet dancing. From bold stripes to funny graphics, and Cozy AF to social distancing forever...come on in.
The easiest way to put a little spring in your step — freshen up your entry with a new doormat! We've got our eyes on 12 doormats that have our happy feet dancing. From bold stripes to fun graphics, from Come-on-in-BYO to maybe-just-Stay-Away, after all. We've got one for the dogs, and our favorites of all time too. They...
While Scandinavian-style decor can seem pretty uncomplicated & plain, we, of course, want to add some coziness into the mix.
Sooo...what is Nordic decor anyway? Funny you should ask. It's basically a design style based on minimalism & simplicity with a stylistic edge (you'll see what I mean through the products linked below). Nordic (or Scandinavian) decor uses pretty much all of the neutrals, wooden accents, ceramics and a ton of exciting shapes, without being too over the top....
The Emotionally Unavailable Until 2021 Doormat caught my eye as 2020 came to a close. It resonated on many levels. And then 2021 knocked on our front doors this week like...well...not like we were hoping it would (said as politely as I could). S wrote about this week, here. IMHO-She is brave and articulate-while many of us are at...
Illuminating Yellow is in fact bright, in a beautiful, almost unexpected, yet familiar way. Thus, a roundup of fun ways to add bright yellow pops to our home decor.
Color, is fun. Color is life. We've seen hints of color coming this year, little pops of it in Weekly Favorite Finds, in a desk chair, a throw blanket. We're wearing it too — as we hint of it in the AllSaints sweater it seems many of us have our minds on. Here and now, though, we're going to...
Weekly favorite finds bring calming kitchen organization & candles; beautiful coffee for the people, + post-holiday sales at Bloomies, Nordstrom & Wayfair.
Well. Hello There, 2021. So nice to meet you. A li'l fister (that's a young friend that's like a little sister to me) dropped-off a wrapped copy of her newly illustrated book — Toshi Builds Consensus. Does she now? Who is this Toshi? I'm curious already, and in love with my li'l fister's art always — it's naturally my...
Time for an overhaul, so the search for a forever set of dishes is on. We're going porcelain, Williams Sonoma & white for our next dinnerware set. Here's why.
Chipped dishes, scratched-up dishes, mismatched dishes...after spending so much time eating at home this year, I was just over all of it. I had some cute stoneware dishes I loved the look of, but they were scratched beyond belief and made a really awful, pull-your-hair-out squeak when your fork hit them just right. OMG, we do not need these...
We're shopping little miracles for the home, plus post-holiday sales (Pottery Barn, West Elm, Crate & Barrel) & pining to dine at Extra Virgin.
Happy Holidays! I had the treat of reading a book as a special guest with my 8-year-old's 3rd-grade class this week. We read The Story of Hanukkah together, and asked and answered questions — about stories, truth, perspective, and beliefs — and miracles. And now I'm still thinking about stories, beliefs, and miracles. Weekly Favorite Finds In Home Decor: Extra...
To spark joy, we're going sustainable. Think handmade, artisanal, eco-friendly, Black-owned, fair trade & community supporting. Beautiful home decor, right this way.
I went in search of sustainable home decor inspiration, because I wanted to take a minute to celebrate the folks out there who work extra to create, find, and/or source items that are handcrafted — by artisans, sustainably and to support communities — that this community might otherwise not have access to. All of the businesses highlighted below...
