"I just ordered this ladder book shelf from Amazon and I absolutely love it. I know that it’s a little pricey, but it was exactly what I was looking for so and the reviews sold me so I had to order it. It’s 7 feet tall and nearly touches the ceiling, which I love. The shelves are really wide and sturdy too, so I don’t have to worry if they can handle all my books and decor. Most importantly though, the design is so sleek and modern, it immediately upgraded the look of my home office. I ordered 2 shelves and put them side by side — 10/10, highly recommend." —Savannah West, Home Assistant Editor

"This week's sunny weather put me in the mood for homemade smoothies. I'd already been eyeing them online, so I bit the (magic) bullet and bought a single serving blender for $40. Bring on the fresh and frozen fruit, please!" —Sarah Everett, Staff Writer

"I am traveling next month for a wedding in Maui and have been eyeing out these packing cubes and this hanging toiletry bag to be more organized. The latter will be especially helpful when sharing bathrooms with friends while traveling!" —Stephanie Nguyen, Cleaning & Organizing Editor

"A friend recently told me I should get a safe for all those important life documents. I'm looking at this small portable one, because I live in a tiny apartment with very little closet space, and it seems more practical in an emergency to just grab it and go instead of trying to open it." —Tara Bellucci, News and Culture Director

Otto Studio

"There's a reason I kicked this year off with the incredibly creative San Francisco home of Taylor BeepBoop. She and her partner infused their space with color, joy, authenticity, and DIY projects, many of which she films and posts on TikTok, where I first saw her style. I was already on board with everything she does, but she just launched an amazing wallpaper capsule collection with the Vancouver-based, women-led OTTO Studio, and it's of course vibrant and fun! And she says it's all thanks to TikTok. 'I went from an unknown person a few months ago to starting a design company (working on designing a new vintage shop in SF’s famous Haight-Ashbury late this summer!) and having my first capsule collection within a few months all thanks to TikTok,' she recently emailed me." —Adrienne Breaux, House Tours Director

"Lately I've been paying more attention to my home's curb appeal, which has included re-potting a plant by the front door and re-painting chairs on the patio. I came across this mat from Heymat and thought that it was so cool — it looks like waves, and is the exact color of the chairs we repainted. I also really like that the mat is made from recycled materials and is super durable. It's been a couple of months since I got it, and the mat still looks brand new." —Kelly Dawson, Deputy Editor

"I’ve been on the hunt for a pretty jewelry catch-all for years, but nothing’s really caught my eye — until this week. Minimalist jewelry brand Mejuri just teamed up with artist and vintage furniture collector Maggie Holladay of Claude Home, launching a line of sculptural grooved dishes. Beautiful enough to double as decor, the three pieces are carved from natural stone and red onyx for an organic, natural look. Mejuri gifted me the Pebble, but I’ll definitely be buying the matching Arch to keep my favorite necklaces safe and tangle-free." —Blair Donovan, Shopping Editor
