My mother has a strict policy against specialty cleaning products in her house. I have no idea how she keeps the place so clean without the help of a Swiffer or Mr. Clean Magic Erasers , but she manages. She does, however, break her own rule for one specific cleaning product. She always keeps a little bottle of yellow stuff under the sink — and it's since become a staple in my own apartment, too. What is it? An adorably named product called Goo Gone . READ MORE »

I've got tons of hair ties laying around—my go-to are Goody Ouchless without the metal band. They come in packages of 37 and upwards, but they still seem to always disappear. If you have long hair, I know you hear me on this. Target Goody Ouchless Elastics 5 Buy now So I'm constantly buying new packages and picking up plain single ties at the gym.

The house looks nice, the fence is attractive and offers a ton of privacy, the plants are interesting, and the accessories are well-suited to the space. While the home was perfectly fine before, wait until you see how it was transformed. READ MORE »

Popcorn ceilings—formally known as acoustic ceilings and sometimes appetizingly referred to as cottage cheese—have gotten a bad rap over the years. Just Google "popcorn ceilings" you'll be inundated with a slew of tutorials on how to remove them.

Name: Bitsie Tulloch and David Giuntoli Location: Hollywood Hills — Los Angeles, California Size: 3,600 square feet Years lived in: 1 year, owned Actors Bitsie and David have spent the bulk of the past few years filming the television show Grimm and living most of the year in woodsy, sometimes-foggy Portland, Oregon. With Grimm finished, the pair are happy to have a new sunny Hollywood Hills home to spend time in. They found this large house that had been sitting on the market for some time, and Bitsie theorizes it may have been because of poor paint and decor choices. She reports there were ugly light fixtures, rooms painted in shades of brown, and a once-lovely kitchen sporting yellow and green hues. "I think they were going for some French country vibe, but it's a Spanish house and it didn't work," she writes. Undeterred, Bitsie was able to see the potential for their own design and color ideas.
