I know we're all putting in a lot of work during the Cure this month, but I promise the reward is totally worth it. A clean and organized home doesn't just look better, it works better, too. When everything is in its place (and has a place), you'll find that everyday life just feels a little more streamlined. READ MORE »

"My roommate purchased the home about two years ago and I'm just renting. So, all the changes are strictly cosmetic at this point. The house needs a lot of love, leveling the foundation, new sheetrock etc. Alas, we are strictly making it cozy and livable in the meantime." READ MORE »

Here's the Difference Between Hygge and Just Plain Lazy

When studying Danish, one of the first words you'll learn is "hygge." It loosely translates to "coziness," but many Danes will tell you that meaning is a bit too literal and restrictive. It's a word that is so emblematic of the Danish culture that it doesn't have a perfect English equivalent. I spent the fall of 2012 living in Copenhagen, where I was exposed to the cozy candlelit cafes with big blankets and zero sense of urgency before that aura of comfort became "cool."

Reese Witherspoon is one of my favorite bookworms—follow her digital book club for inspiration—and she knows how to bring fantastic stories to the big screen. From Wild, to Big Little Lies, to the upcoming A Wrinkle in Time, I just look to Reese's IMDb page for what I should add to my TBR pile. Her latest project (a TV show!) put a new book on my radar: Bestselling author Curtis Sittenfeld's first short story collection, You Think It, I'll Say It . READ MORE »

This is an interesting project, as it was purchased and remodeled for the express purpose of being sold. Unlike many projects we see which intimately reflect the residents' needs, habits, and tastes, this one was freed from such restrictions. As the homeowner described the process, "The house was an estate sale, and was extremely dated. It hadn't been touched in many years, though it had a lot of potential." That potential has now been unlocked! READ MORE »
