Decor & Design

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...
A little Etsy lamp makes the 9-to-5 so much better & brightens your space + mood. 16 cool, quirky desk lamps to add spunk to our at-home workspace.
If you are a regular, ordinary, been-sitting-here-for-ten-plus-years metal desk lamp — abandon hope all ye who enter here — it's time for some fun. Working at home has become the usual for many, and I'm here to tell you that a little Etsy lamp could make your 9-to-5 a whole lot better. I've rounded up a bunch of really...

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...
Our kids LOVE Halloween decorations, which are more about the door or front porch. Spiders & cobwebs from Etsy, Target & Amazon — inside.
My kids get super-excited about Halloween, like...crazy excited. They start planning costumes months in advance. Of course they also do that kid thing and change their minds at the very last minute, and we're up all night on Halloween eve, remaking something that's newly inspired their hearts. But still. Their excitement is palpable. My kids also LOVE to decorate the...
We're crushing on Pendleton wool + faux fur & Parachute velvet, plus Black-Owned collaboration Ghetto Gastro CruxGG for the kitchen. Get cozy.
One of my girlfriends is pregnant!!! THIS hasn't happened in a while. Holy Moly! I'm not supposed to tell anyone yet. This doesn't count, right? Anyway...I'm super-excited about our TME newest contributor Amy, and taking all the hints for gifts for my prego girlfriend and her fresh bundle of belly joy from Amy's upcoming posts! Second confession of the morning—I've...
Ina Garten has Modern Comfort Food for us & Amazon reviews have us carting kitchen gear. Also, comfort for those outdoor gatherings + a fun tee.
Mamala, Senator Kamala Harris, Wednesday night, was absolute perfection. I'm feeling an extra need to celebrate ALL that she is, and 'round here we begin all celebrations with a graphic tee. Check out my Black-owned Business Spotlight below this week, because not only is my new favorite graphic tee perfection and a celebration of all that should be, it's...
We've found Halloween ornamentation that gives a chic, elegant nod to the dark & spooky -- think of it as the Black Swan of Fall decorations.
Looking for something a little more understated than the typical Halloween decor? Us, too. Fall decorations are a must, but that Halloween aesthetic can feel so temporary. So we've rounded up some Halloween ornamentation that simply gives a chic, elegant nod to the dark and spooky -- think of it as the Black Swan of Halloween trimmings. And while bright...
Hey, Boo caught our eye. There's Some Horrors In This House had us ROFL & so did 8 other Halloween doormats. Fun fall decor, inside (Shoes off, witches).
Is Halloween cancelled? Or on? And safe? I'm still confused about that. But this much I know: EVERYTHING about being at home is important right now, so why not take the opportunity to have some fun with the fam? Let's focus our pocus on Halloween at home. ;) I don't normally do holiday doormats. I love the ones I love,...
