“It hasn't come in yet, but I bought this light fixture on Amazon that honestly looks like the more expensive light fixtures I've been coveting!” —Adrienne Breaux, Real Homes Director

2 / 7

“The painterly patterns of artist and designer Caroline Z Hurley add a Memphis flair to a new collab with Madewell. I’m trying to add more linen to my wardrobe ahead of summer, and this collection is far from boring.” —Tara Bellucci, News and Culture Director

“Case closed, game over — I’ve officially found the absolute best hostess/wedding/wow-I-need-this-for-myself gift: colorful glassware from new New York-based tabletop brand, Sprezz. Specifically, their Whimsical Collection features sets of four dishwasher-safe tumblers, each filled with a quirky Matisse-inspired coral motif. Made from borosilicate glass, they’re proof that dainty drinkware designs deserve a seat at the table any day of the year.” —Blair Donovan, Shopping Editor

Boll & Branch

“Boll & Branch’s best-selling Signature Sheets are among the softest in the biz, so you can imagine how excited I was to hear the brand was launching sleepwear this week that’s made out of the same 100% organic cotton fabric, only with an additional pre-wash for even more of a buttery feel. The entire collection boasts four silhouettes: a sleepshirt and then three variations of pajama sets: a short sleeve top and shorts, a short sleeve top and pants, and a long sleeve top and pants. And if you’re more of a jersey knit fabric PJ fan, you’ll find that material as an option, too, so there's something for every kind of sleeper.” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director

“I recently discovered this cute ceramics shop on Etsy. I got a palo santo holder and a speckled mug, and they're both gorgeous and so well-made!” —Lilian Tanner, Producer

“My standing desk doesn't have any drawers, which is something I've struggled with lately. I had my desk supplies stowed in a filing cabinet, but I wanted a way to keep a few essential ones close by. I ended up grabbing the SKADIS pegboard from IKEA, and it's been just what I needed. Customization options include shallow shelves, cups, clips, and more, so I've been able to create the exact right setup for me. I can't believe I waited so long!” —Megan Baker Detloff, Home Projects Director

Rugs USA
was $169.80

“My kitchen is a big square, and I've never quite figured out how to create a designated dining area. Enter: This Rugs USA area rug that I tucked under my dining table and chairs to make a cozy, checkered dining nook. The pattern’s on-trend, but the gradient to its colors makes it feel lived-in — I love it!” —Sofia Rivera, Associate Lifestyle Editor
