Decor & Design

Fave finds include Black Friday sales, lucky charms & numbers, Covid-19 Family Diaries & a black-owned business spotlight on The Iconic Home.
Currently on my mind: Black Friday Sales, live, with early starts (my favorite among them so far are Land's End-code: rake and West Elm,) Good and Bad luck (check out this money tree named Dinero!!!), Covid-19 Positive Diaries Week 1, Quarantine, the number 46, and Happy Friday the 13th! Forget 13, that unlucky number. I'm on 46. I turned 46...
Aegean Teal, Benjamin Moore's 2021 paint color of the year, is soothing. A hint of green makes it pop! How to add those decor accents, at home.
Black and White are my first true loves, and I have a longtime love affair with all the Shades of Grey, but I do also appreciate a pop of color here and there. Sometimes it's an accent wall, kitchen cabinets, a door, or the room that can handle intense color, or all the cute home decor accessories. Especially on...
The cutest matching family pajamas, curbside pickup & christmas decorations we can mix & match...Kohl's has we need for holidays at home.
I've always loved Kohl's. It's one of the few stores we have here, and I have such a feeling of nostalgia when I think about going there: shopping with my mom during the holidays (when we would see practically everyone we know and spent more time chatting than shopping), browsing the makeup by myself when I wanted some alone...

Cute mugs, travel carafes, candles, throws & accessories...we're finding our fave meaningful gifts & home decor from Black-owned businesses
We don't normally shop for holiday gifts quite this early in the season. And in the past, we haven't directed our search for gifts specifically toward Black-owned businesses, organic, sustainable and handcrafted gifts. This year, is different, and we're doing all that. What began as a deep-dive into shopping Black-owned home decor this year has been, for me, one of...
A few of our favorite things we have, love & appreciate to be more comfortable at home. Think candles, comfy chairs, luxe sheets & even a sexy sweater.
Come Sunday, I will have completed another turn around the sun. Anyone else feel like they aged 10 years over the one actual year that was 2020? I've been hinting in my posts for random fun and beautiful things as gifts over the past few weeks, when really, I probably should just be asking for better eye cream —...
Black Friday & Cyber Monday are just right for shopping the finer things for home. We're eyeing Solo Stove, luxe sheets & towels + more to stay warm.
I predict...we will continue to be mostly home for some time to come. I predict...there are ways to be more comfy, warmer and have more fun there. AND, I predict, that all good things for our homes will go on sale at some point this month leading up to Black Friday! There are some things, we need and/or wish for...
We have fun in the form of poufs & indoor gyms for the kids + other fun gifts for home. Check out Yowie, a Black-owned business, plus CB2 & Macy's.
I checked in with my kids last night — through the overhead sounds of helicopters for the 4th night in a row — and guess what? My kids are alright. They are aware of what's happening around them and just...doing what kids do to understand and process the world around them, while continuing to share love and light right...

Anyone else feel like they need a little exhale? Maybe that's why I'm currently obsessing over this mask that says, I mean business, know how to have fun, I can kinda hide from you in plain sight, AND I can exhale. Done. ****Pause, per comments below, super important....we can't actually wear this mask, exhalation valves are no good-they...
