Dust is gross. A mixture of dead skin cells, pollen, dust mites, dust mite feces, pet dander, textile fibers, burnt particles of cosmic rocks, decomposing insects, and more—dust is no doubt dirty. But it harbors a more sinister component, a fact that has motivated me, for one, to finally become a little less lax and more fatalistic about how much of it I allow to stick around in my home. Toxic chemicals that hide in dust pose a cancer and fertility risk and are a significant source of exposure to these chemicals . READ MORE »

How One Woman Used Design as Therapy After Her Divorce — House Call

Name: Dani Loseke, partner, two boys Location: Bloomington, Illinois Years lived in: 7 months, renting This may sound really cliche, but after my divorce, I used designing and decorating as my own therapy. My goal was to make my home a place where I could come home and feel like I was on a vacation. Before I moved in to this three-bedroom ranch, I lived in a very small, but charming two-bedroom rental. It took me a while to fill my house with furniture and decorations (both bought and made) but I love it and I accomplished my dream. It may be a little too girly for my boys (11 and 14) but they don't complain, although I'm not sure they even notice when I do something different. But this isn't a sad divorce story, because I have a super hot fiance. So I would say this is actually a story of a girl that didn't know she had a knack for decorating (or so she's been told).

The Store: Calhoun & Co. The Maker: Kerry Stokes These days, the phrase "weekend goals" brings to mind cozy linens and the latest season of Westworld more than nights out late dancing, drinking, and general merry-making. And few online destinations best capture our feelings on weekend goals like Calhoun & Co. The home of the uber-popular "Good At Naps" blanket takes cozy to a new level. All this hygge is the brainchild of Kerry Stokes, a Brooklyn-based designer who started Calhoun & Co . to sell pieces that would make people's homes feel more like, well, homes. "The idea of creating pieces that people kept in their homes, where they spend time with those nearest & dearest to them, felt like a natural fit," she explains. Her pieces, like their creator, don't take themselves too seriously, either. "There is always some aspect of playfulness in each design—whether it's the texture or graphics," she says. We spoke with Stokes to learn more about her inspiration behind her shop, the super-sweet story behind her shop's name, and the mini blanket that a surprising number of people request in a more adult size.

Growing up in California, long before they became trendy, I ate avocados regularly. And long before avocado toast was a thing, my friend who was in culinary school introduced us to the simple but angel-chorus-cuing combo of crusty bread, slices of fresh avocado, a squeeze of lemon, and a sprinkle of fleur de sel . But the avocados of my childhood weren't just for eating—with my grandmother's help, and in a way that now reminds me of the good old lemonade adage, we turned our pits into plants. Here's how you can too. READ MORE »
