Kick Off the First Weekend of Spring By Shopping Overstock’s Biggest Sale of the Year
It can be hard to remember to appreciate the little things. And yet, spring is technically here, cat ladders are a thing that exist–and Overstock is having their semi-annual sale. The giant retailer sells pretty much everything you can think of, including decor, pet supplies, and even sporting equipment. But where they really shine, especially when it comes to the home, is with their furniture and rug offerings. One problem is that the site is enormous.

Let’s Get You Set Up Now for Binge-Watch Season
Summer’s over (boo!). But there’s so much to look forward to in the fall and winter. Namely, one of our favorite pastimes: doing nothing. Human “hibernation” is totally a thing, and it may actually help us recover and recuperate. This is the time to start building your den of coziness, where your main activity will be telling Netflix you’re still watching from time to time.

Anthropologie’s Newest Collection is a Summer Dream Come True—and You Can Take 20% Off This Weekend
A piece of furniture has never given me the uncontrollable urge to put on a caftan, blast the song “Summer Breeze,” and whip up a batch of Aperol Spritzes before. That is, until I saw Anthropologie’s new Peacock Cabana Daybed above. The curved rattan and bright pink cushion would make any outdoor space feel like an instant oasis. My new obsession is part of Anthropologie’s new Summer Outdoor Collection, which launched today.

Here’s Why You Should Get Your Home Tested for Radon (Even If You Rent)
As a homeowner (or renter), you might have heard of radon: an invisible, odorless, and dangerous gas that’s formed when uranium is broken down over time (this, by the way, is called radioactive decay). The rocks and soil underneath all of our homes have traces of uranium—but what does that mean for our homes? I asked a couple of experts and here’s what they say everyone should know about radon gas. Technically, we’re already exposed to radon. According to the U.S.

PSA: You’ve Only Tapped 1/15th of Sandpaper’s Full Potential
Some single-use gadgets and home tools just take up space versus regularly make our lives easier. It’s hard to purchase an entire device that just de-pills sweaters, for example, when you know it will wind up languishing in your cabinet or drawer. Which is why it’s great to discover multiple handy uses for ordinary objects and materials you already have lying around the house. Today’s unsung household hero: sandpaper.

Every Wall’s White, But This Is Still a Colorful House
Name: Joanna Reeves, husband, two children Location: Bath, England Size: 2,800 square feet Years lived in: 4 years, owned I always wanted to live in a tall skinny house and luckily my husband is pretty laid back (or doesn’t like an argument), so he agreed. It was very much a fixer upper and in the first six weeks we had 16 new windows, a new staircase, and most rooms re-plastered. Oh and made the roof rainproof. Every wall and ceiling is white, but it’s still a really colorful house.
