was $16.99

“Since we're nearing summer's end, I was so excited to test Aromatique's ‘The Smell of Espresso’ candle. For only $16.99, this candle brings the ultimate cozy vibes to any space. It's as if coffee is perpetually brewing, and sweeter, complementary notes of caramel, vanilla, and roast walnuts make you want to grab a blanket, a good book, and curl up next to the flickering candle. And if you want to add more espresso scents to your home, you're in luck. There's a whole line available for purchase, including room spray and refresher oils.” —Cullen Ormond, Home Associate Editor

“I’m always looking for books to add to my shelves and coffee table, and Lei Aloha: Celebrating the Vibrant Flowers and Lei of Hawai'i is the latest to join my collection. Against a backdrop of page after page of beautiful leis, stylist, author, and lei master Meleana Estes shares her family stories of growing up in Hawai’i and all about the lei’s significance in Hawaiian culture. I could flip through the book for hours!” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director

“Certain collaborations just make sense, and designer Erin Fetherston’s exclusive new line with Anthropologie is a prime example. The recently-launched, 26-piece assortment taps Fetherston’s signature airy, elegant style with mauve-toned velvet seating, burl bedroom furniture, and ethereal decor. Prices range from $34 for candles to $3,498 for the pièce de résistance — a dreamy curved sofa with a slatted wood base.” —Blair Donovan, Shopping Editor

Blu Dot

“Blu Dot's fall collection includes so many sleek furniture and storage pieces. I'm especially loving the clover-shaped base of the 4/4 dining table and the minimal (and colorful!) Aside storage ladder.” —Tara Bellucci, News and Culture Director

“This HearO tennis ball speaker made the perfect birthday gift for my mom (who loves to both play and watch). Plus, it'll make for a fun little pop of yellow on her desk or bookshelf. Perhaps the perfect time to order for the tennis lover in YOUR life is right before the U.S. Open begins on August 28.” —Sarah Everett, Home Projects Assistant Editor
