10 Weird Items You Should Put in Your Fridge by LiveModern Webmaster — last modified Apr 25, 2017 01:06 AM
(Image credit: Leela Cyd ) If I were ever to receive a visit from a Victorian-era time traveler, the first thing I'd show them is the refrigerator. It's a modern miracle that we can keep milk from turning for nearly a month, but what you might not know is that your fridge and freezer can do so much more. If you have the room to spare, try dropping a few of these non-food items in your fridge or freezer. READ MORE »
Can a Comfortable Mattress Really Come in a Box? — Annual Guide 2017 by LiveModern Webmaster — last modified Apr 25, 2017 01:06 AM
Mattress shopping used to be such a pain. You'd go to a showroom or store, lay down on a few beds (while being creepily watched by a salesman) and pretty much choose one on the spot, despite having no clue what it would feel like overnight let alone long term. And then getting it home posed yet another problem. Strap it to your car? Pay for white glove delivery and take a day off from work to wait for it? No, thank you. It's no wonder the bed-in-a-box foam mattress movement has taken off—it really makes bed shopping convenient, affordable and pretty much risk free, since many companies offer trial periods that literally let you sleep on it.

The Fresh Way to an Accent Wall (and No, It Has Nothing to Do With Paint) by LiveModern Webmaster — last modified Apr 25, 2017 01:06 AM
Here at Apartment Therapy, we're huge fans of wallpaper — but we also recognize that papering a whole room is a huge commitment (and a very big design move). If you want to add just a little bit of pattern to a space, or you're working with a bold print and don't want it to overwhelm the room, a wallpapered accent wall is a great move. Here are some of our favorite examples. READ MORE »

Ridiculous Name, Major Results? We Test the Much-Hyped Milky Piggy Bubble Mask to Find Out — Beauty Bucket List by LiveModern Webmaster — last modified Apr 25, 2017 01:06 AM
Welcome to another installment of Beauty Bucket List, a series in which we roll up our sleeves to do some hard and fast testing of cult classic beauty products, because just hearing about how great something is just isn't good enough. Through the eyes (and bodies) of contributing writers Alex and Colleen (one a beauty lover, the latter mostly beauty clueless), we've assessed the hype-worthiness of Maybelline's best-selling Great Lash Mascara , the sort of scary exfoliating foot peel, Baby Foot , and Josie Maran's "magical" 100% argan oil. Next up, the mostly ridiculous but mega-hyped Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask. READ MORE »

A "Laid Back Glamorous" San Francisco Studio — House Tour by LiveModern Webmaster — last modified Apr 25, 2017 01:06 AM
Name: Kym Pesola Location: Lower Pacific Heights — San Francisco, California Size: 600 square feet Years lived in: 1.5 years, renting "I wouldn't say 'no' to a real dining table and more space, but it's actually cozy to gather around on the floor and the sofa when friends come to visit." In one sentence, media relations manager Kym Pesola sums up big pros and cons of studio apartment living: the intimacy it can offer and the lack of space. So she made the best out of her home by dividing it to suit all her needs (even squeezing in a keyboard). Although Kym claims decorating didn't come naturally to her at first, she's clearly a master of it now: her small studio is a study in sophisticated glam and laid back functionality. READ MORE »

At the mercy of tile trends and ever-changing hardware styles, bathrooms that aren't updated often (who can afford a yearly renovation?) can look outdated very quickly. One of the most affordable ways to help this room race against the clock without outpacing your budget is to let inexpensive paint lead the way. Some color on a vintage tub or a swipe of paint on an old vanity will give an older bathroom its sparkle back. READ MORE »

My best friend of twelve years has a one-year-old baby and is leaving the father to come live with us. She has no money of her own, so my boyfriend and I were quick to lend a helping hand by letting her and her baby stay in our second bedroom. It's only for a few months until she saves up enough money from her new job to get her own place. READ MORE »
