Not sure where to shop, or just need some quick inspo? Start here with a weekly rundown of AT editors’ favorite finds, from things we’ve tested and exciting brand launches, to home project kickstarters. Read on to see what’s got our team buzzing this week.

"My girlfriends are an invaluable part of my support system. While we show each other year-round love and appreciation through togetherness and showing up for one another when it counts, each year for 'Galentine’s Day' we like to seize the moment to send each other thoughtful gifts that say, 'I love you, sis.' Since we’re all still trying our best to be good plant parents, this year, I’m all over Bloomscape’s Valentine’s themed limited edition plant shop. The colorful, small potted picks are like little works of art that are sure to add a pop of color to their office space or kitchen windowsill. The Bromeliad Guzmania in purple and the Bromeliad Summer (shown here) are the perfect low-maintenance — yet beautiful— plant finds for the occasion!" —Charli Penn, Executive Lifestyle Director

West Elm
was $150.00

"I've been eyeing this duvet cover and sham set from West Elm for a long time, and it went on sale, so I bought it for my room. I love the calming color palette and the geometric pattern — it feels Matisse-esque, IMO." —Sarah Everett, Staff Writer

Rifle Paper Co.
was $28.00

"Jerry Seinfeld said if you want to write everyday, you should get a big wall calendar and everyday you write (or whatever your goal is), put a big X over that day. Eventually, you'll want to keep your streak going and have more X's so you'll write more. So I got this calendar from Rifle Paper Co. that is fully on display in my kitchen and being able to see and mark off the days that I'm sitting down and writing has pushed me to write more. I am of the mindset that it doesn't have to be Jan. 1 for you to make goals for yourself. It's OK to not hit your goal every day, but doing this has made me so much more productive. Plus, calendars are way cheaper in February!" —Lilian Tanner, Production Assistant

Bare Home

"Getting into a cozy bed is one the best ways to end a cold winter day. But sometimes, between flannel sheets, a down comforter, and more pillows than one girl needs, I’ve found myself waking up in the middle of the night, gasping for air. Enter: These linen sheets from Bare Home. The natural material is soft, great at regulating temperature, and the indigo hue I got them in is a gorgeous, warm gray-blue. So long, nights of dealing with the too-hot-too-cold struggle." —Sofia Rivera, Associate Lifestyle Editor

New West KnifeWorks

"I’ve never been one to give much thought to high-end knives — that is until I found New West Knifeworks. This U.S.-based brand makes some of the best knives on the market today, all hand-forged from superior steel with eye-catching handles to boot. Aesthetics aside, this knife is a powerhouse. It’s the perfect mid-sized knife that chops everything with so much ease it’s almost shocking. Sorry to my knife block — this bad boy’s got all my attention now." —Sarah Vazquez, Commerce SEO Editor

6 / 6
was $45.00

"I have limited kitchen countertop space, and I'm aiming to make everything that's on display, practically and aesthetically, look nice. I've been eyeing this drying rack from Food52 for a while, and I recently decided to trade my $5 drying mat for it. Guess what? It's so cool, as to be expected. I love that its compact design fits neatly over my sink, and I can make it 'disappear' when not in use. I got the blue color, which has some gray notes in it, and I love how it coordinates with other sage and terracotta accents. In other words, it's working hard but looking good while doing it — mission accomplished!" —Kelly Dawson, Deputy Editor
