(Image credit: Yellow Brick Home ) Shelf brackets' primary purpose is well known and documented: prop up and secure boards to create wall storage. But did you know that there's an entire outlaw gang of brackets that went rogue? They shrugged off society's expectations about their usefulness and devised entirely new roles for themselves within households and workspaces everywhere. READ MORE »

(Image credit: Maxwell Ryan ) I love to buy and test trashcans. I've owned many and tried many others. I am a big fan of the classic, no-tech Rubbermaid cans, but those you have to hide. If you want something more accessible and pretty, you move to a different class. My latest tryout is with simplehuman's brand new sensor can which as motion AND now — get this — voice control. Move over Alexa! I owned the first generation of the sensor can years ago, and I can tell you that they have finally gotten it right. This can is handsome, practical and works beautifully.

Recently I was listening to the Happier podcast and heard "The Happiness Project" author Gretchen Rubin address a listener question about reclaiming the chair in the bedroom. You know the one—perpetually buried in clothes. Being intimately familiar with the unsightly dilemma myself, I leaned in. Apparently, the problem may be rooted in something other than the obvious: Not (or at least not only) in bad habits and sheer laziness, but also in the universal concept of "gray space" clothing.

A few weeks back, I received an email from Chris Livingston about his Kickstarter campaign for Gravel, a toiletry bag that he and his partner Lance designed. At first glance, it looked like a typical men's Dopp Kit, but I started reading and realized that this is a total game changer when it comes to packing toiletries for travel. While most of us use plastic baggies or throw everything into a catch-all case, Gravel envisioned a better way. And it seems that people agree there's a better way — Gravel hit their $12,000 funding goal within 8 hours of the campaign launch. Read on to check out how Gravel's changing the way we pack and let me know what you think in the comments! READ MORE »

Guess the Decade Decor Quiz: Kitchens from the '30s to '80s

Trends in home decor can be short lived. Your typical en vogue item will be passé within a year or three (sometimes, even within months), but kitchens are a bit of an exception. Hardwired to a home, swapping out the style of your kitchen takes a much firmer commitment and, as a result, the aesthetics are slower to evolve. That being said, a 1950s kitchen looked like a 1950s kitchen for the majority of the decade and sometimes into the next. The question is, can you match the decade to the kitchen? Some are pretty easy (hey, we like to hand out a few freebies) but others are tricky. Ready to test your design eye? READ MORE »
