The Best Luggage for Everyone
When it comes to finding the luggage that’s right for you (and your next trip), there are a few questions you should ask: How will you be traveling? How long will you be traveling? How much stuff will you actually bring with you? The answers to those questions can help determine what kind of bag is right for you, whether that be a weekender, a carry-on, or a more substantial check bag. Of course, no matter which style of luggage you land on, not all bags are created equal.

5 Dream Nurseries for Chrissy Teigen’s New Baby
As Chrissy Teigen announced on Twitter, her son with John Legend is “herrrrrrre!” and the Internet is basically losing it with excitement. And while most people are focused on learning the new addition’s name, we can’t help but focus on something a little more design-y: his nursery.

The Weird Story of How Recliners Became a Staple in American Living Rooms
Growing up, it never really felt like an official family party until my dad and uncle retired to the twin tan recliners in my grandparents’ living room after dinner, while my grandpa settled into his own rusty orange recliner on the opposite side of the room. Within minutes of sitting down and kicking up their feet, all three would be sound asleep. How they could sleep through the sounds of six shrieking children pretending to be wolves, I’ll never know. It must have been the chairs.

This $10 Amazon Buy Solved My Biggest Kitchen Annoyance
Just a few months back I moved into a new apartment with one of NYC’s most coveted amenities—a dishwasher. After years of washing by hand, it feels like such a luxury to be able to just rinse my dishes after dinner and load them into the machine. Of course, there are still some pieces that need to be hand washed, so I haven’t been able to get rid of my sponge completely. And that’s where the annoyance comes in.

Why Greige is the Neutral You Need to Know
My two biggest passions in life are probably design and word play, so give me something that combines the two and I’m practically in heaven—like with greige, that aptly named neutral color that’s the perfect combination of gray and beige.

This Is Apartment Therapy’s First-Ever Pattern of the Year
Like all the best trends—velvet furnishings, pastel kitchen appliances, even low-carb diets—animal prints have cycled in and out of style over the years (and centuries). At times they’ve been perceived as luxurious and expensive, at other times tacky, outdated, and even a little scandalous, but they never truly leave the cultural lexicon (most recently, Tom Ford’s 2018 Fall Ready to Wear Collection relied heavily on those wild patterns).
