“I do not need this whimsical, colorful mushroom lamp, but I definitely want it. I mean, seriously: Does a table lamp get any cuter?” —Alison Goldman, Special Projects Director

“Brooklinen’s new laundry line is wonderful, cleans my sheets well, and is just so #aesthetic. It gets me hyped up to do laundry (my least favorite chore), and my sheets come out so clean, soft, and delightfully scented (I have products in both Herbal Clean and Dream Clean scents). The smaller packaging that the products come in means they’re easier to organize in my laundry room, although it also means I’ll go through bottles faster than usual — a price I’m ultimately willing to pay, given fresh sheets and an easier laundry routine.” —Jada Wong, Shopping Director

“Now that spring has sprung, all floral everything is on my mind, from actual bouquets of fresh stems to flower patterns and even garden scents. Last weekend, I got my fill of flower inspo, thanks to the 48th annual Macy's Flower Show, where the main floor, balcony, and windows at the iconic 34th Street store in NYC are all in bloom. This year, a special partnership with DIOR brought the sensorial aspect of the floral dreamscape theme to another dimension, literally, with the inclusion of some of the French fashion house’s most beloved fragrances — everything smelled as dreamy as it looked! If you can’t make it to the flagship store before the show officially closes on April 10, you can bring the sweet aroma to your home by lighting this Miss Dior candle.” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director

“I’ve been looking at what kind of rug I want to buy, and this moss one from Etsy has always caught my eye.” —Noella Williams, Assistant News & Culture Editor

“I used a gift card to buy this humidifier at the beginning of the year, and it was the best Sephora purchase I've ever made. I feel so much less dry when I wake up in the mornings, and I really like that you can adjust the fan speed based on the humidity in the room.” —Megan Baker Detloff, Home Projects Director

“Over the last few months, I’ve had the chance to test-drive Apple's new second-generation Home Pod smart home hub and audio device, and I’m here to report that doing so has allowed me to take my listening sessions at home to the next level. It senses where it’s placed in a room and calibrates the sound according to its surroundings. If you close your eyes and just listen, the spatial audio quality makes you feel like you’ve just been teleported to the front row of your favorite artist’s latest tour stop. My favorite feature is the ease with which I can seamlessly transfer music from my phone to my HomePod by simply placing my phone near the speaker.” —Charli Penn, Executive Lifestyle Director

Banana Republic

“From blouses to blankets, Banana Republic has officially thrown its hat into the interior design ring with the launch of BR Home. This new line of bedding, rugs, throws, and pillows — handmade by global artisans — promises to deliver on the brand’s signature keep-for-years quality and timeless appeal. Prices start at $40 and max out at several thousand for large, premium handmade area rugs. My personal favorite? This classic, pair-with-anything striped pillow.” —Blair Donovan, Shopping Editor

“My mom has this Amazon electric kettle, and it’s SO much cuter than my utilitarian one.” —Sofia Rivera, Associate Lifestyle Editor

“Right now I have a credenza under my TV, but I need more storage — so I’m putting this Wayfair dresser underneath instead!” —Sarah Everett, Staff Writer
