Ranging from pristine and brilliant to aged, rubbed, and patinated, brass is the metal of many faces. Regardless of which finish you prefer, brass lighting is always an easy choice for a chic, eye-catching look.
Doesn't it seem like every allergy season seems to be the worst ever? So when I was offered an opportunity to review the ZŌN Personal Air Purifier, I leapt at the chance. Initially previewed at the New York International Gift Fair 2013, the ZŌN stood out on the show floor, yet inaudible amongst the din of the show floor.

Indoor and outdoor spaces blend almost seamlessly — Mercedes calls it 'a garden with a roof.' Surrounded by all this greenery, it's easy to forget you're in the city.
I have two big rules when shopping for small space furniture. The first and most important rule is that everything should serve multiple purposes. Rule number two: if I can hang it on the wall, all the better!
Q: I'm moving in a few weeks and I'm not sure how to handle this piece of furniture. It's a dresser similar in style to the one in this photo, and it's on the heavier end.

This apartment is our happy place. It's a small home for two people, our pets, and all our stuff, but we've never really felt like we needed more space. We've put a lot of love into it! It's colorful, cheerful, cozy, and we always love coming home to it.
