“I was sent this cord organizer, and I love that it gathers and hides the black cords that clash against the white walls and bookshelf in my living room. I plan to use it by my desk, too!” —Stephanie Nguyen, Cleaning & Organizing Editor

“When my last toaster broke, I set out to find one that both a) worked and b) was aesthetically pleasing. Then I came across the perfect find: HAY's George Sowden Toaster. It's a colorful take on an otherwise typically subdued appliance.” —Cullen Ormond, Home Associate Editor

“Finding art is tough — like, really, too tough. It can be pricey to find items that speak to you, and overwhelming to sift through countless online options. I've been eyeing this art print for about a year, loving how dreamy it is, but I couldn't justify the price. Then I moved into an apartment and subconsciously furnished my bedroom with all of the colors in this painting. By the time I was ready to think about art, I knew I had to get this one for above my bed. Is it more than I was planning on spending? Yes. But I love that Minted supports artists, and I know I'll have this print for many, many years to come.” —Kelly Dawson, Deputy Editor

“It's almost beach and pool season here in the Northeast, and that means it’s time to upgrade my towel situation. I'm thinking about splurging on one of Sferra's stunners; their styles are just a little bit bigger and heavier than typical beach towels. The color and pattern will definitely make me smile all summer long.” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director

“I am on a mission to replace every one of our slightly melted plastic turners and spatulas with silicone versions, and I love this one I found at Trader Joe's recently. The colors are cute, the price is right, the silicone construction is heat-proof to 550 degrees, and it's dishwasher-safe. I highly recommend it!” —Megan Baker Detloff, Home Projects Director

“I have long been on a hunt for the best solution for making lattes at home, and I think I've finally found it. It's the Aeropress, an under-$40 gadget you can find at Target. I've been making lattes in less than five minutes almost daily — it's just that easy! Paired with a bag of coffee beans, it's my new go-to gift for fellow caffeine-lovers.” —Sarah Everett, Staff Writer

“I have a lot of makeup and never enough places to put it all. Most of it goes bad before I can truly use it, because my collection typically gets stuffed into acrylic drawer organizers or bins, and I forget to include it in my weekly rotation. This glam organizer from Umbra holds a good amount of products but also allows them to be displayed in a visible way that's stylish and easily accessible. It was the perfect solution for my makeup overflow problem yet still small-space-friendly. Win-win!” —Charli Penn, Executive Lifestyle Director

“I moved a few months ago, and the last thing I wanted to deal with was organizing my bathroom’s under-the-sink storage. It was just easier to keep things in the moving bags that I'd carried from one apartment to the next. But every time I opened my under-the-sink cabinet, a hate so deep for the disorder I was working with would rise within me. So while this cabinet organizer with a rollout bottom rack isn't particularly beautiful, it makes a huge difference. Not only can I easily see everything hiding under my sink now, but I can also find it. And the rollout bottom rack means I don't knock everything over reaching for an extra sponge or soap bar.” —Kylie McConville, Apartment Therapy Editor-in-Chief
