IKEA BEKVÄM Spice Rack

BEKVÄM Spice Rack

"I bought 8 of these to repurpose as bookshelves (installed low on the wall) for my toddler after seeing someone do this on TikTok. It's such a great Montessori style kid-friendly bookshelf hack." —Mélanie Berliet, general manager

Kelly Clarkson Home Lourdes Task Chair

Lourdes Task Chair

"I escaped the city last month and have been working from a new space for a bit. This office chair is a nice swap for the armchair I've been using at home (I didn't realize how much I like to have wheels!). I worried the back of the chair might be too low, but it's deceivingly higher than it looks and was extremely comfortable to sit in all day. We have the one in teal, which I like because it's a darker color (always great for hiding stains—I'm not a habitual coffee spiller, but I'm not perfect), and it also gives the chair an overall look of modern sophistication." —Emily Manchester, editorial and strategy director

harmati Coffee Table

Harmati Coffee Table for Living Room

"I've spent the past few months searching for a stylish coffee table with a small footprint for my apartment, and finally stumbled upon the perfect piece This sleek table is an ideal size for a small living room and the cane shelf is such a stunning detail. As an added bonus it was a breeze to build." —Bridget Mallon, associate editor director

Parachute Linen Pillow Cover

linen pillow cover

"I'm getting ready to move into a new apartment next month, and the first item on my list has been new bedding (though I should probably be more concerned with packing!). This linen pillow cover from Parachute is the perfect accent pillow for my new space, breathing just enough warmth into the room without overcrowding my bed." —Caroline Utz, senior editor

Joseph Joseph Compact Cutlery Organizer

Joseph Joseph DrawerStore Compact Cutlery Organizer

"This is actually a favorite courtesy of my sister, who just moved into her first apartment. She was left with one tight drawer to house all of her cutlery, and the initial tray we purchased was definitely not going to fit. She stumbled on this cute organizer on Amazon, and it fits perfectly in the drawer. It houses everything she needs, and this is great if you're working with a small space." —Mia Ingui, associate editor

Sugarboo & Co. Everything is Possible Notepad

Everything is Possible Notepad

"When I started working from home last year, I purchased a basic little notepad for my desk, thinking it wouldn't get much use since I organize everything on my computer. Turns out, I was jotting things down all day from my to-dos to meeting notes, and soon, the notepad was bare. I picked up this notepad at a small boutique down the shore, and it's truly adorable. It actually adds to my desk décor and provides nice writing space for my workday."—Mia Ingui, associate editor

DeLonghi EC155M Manual Espresso Machine

"Although I’m a serial cappuccino drinker, I’ve never made one at home until now. I usually save them as a special treat when I’m out at a coffee shop or cafe, but I recently woke up one morning and decided I must learn make a cappuccino! I ordered this Delonghi machine for curbside pickup at my Target, and by evening I was making frothy drinks. This machine was super easy to learn how to operate and is small enough to fit right in on my countertop. Highly recommend!" —Amy Cooper, visual editor

Jolly Green Products Rotating Marshmallow Roasting Sticks

Rotating Marshmallow Roasting Sticks

"Despite the heat, we've managed to have a couple of fire pit nights, partially because I've really just wanted to make s'mores. I'm loving these marshmallow roasting sticks that telescope and spin for the perfect golden roasted marshmallow. I'm very excited for cooler weather and more opportunities for sitting around the fire and eating s'mores. (pro-tip: I buy dark chocolate bars for my smores)" —Margot Cavin, photo producer, The Spruce

Gray Malin Bondi Beach Landscape, Vertical

Bondi Beach Landscape, Vertical

"Having a Gray Malin print has been a goal of mine for years, and finally, for my birthday this year, I splurged on a framed print for myself. It arrived this month and it's absolutely everything I hoped it would be—beautiful quality, colorful, cheerful, and completely coastal. It's hanging in my bedroom now, and I smile every time I look at it." —Lauren Phillips, lifestyle editor, The Spruce

VANGOAL Long Spout Watering Can

Long Spout Watering Can

"After years of using a Pyrex measuring cup to water my plants, I got this VANGOAL watering can and it's perfect. The long spout lets me water plants at the roots, and the spout's opening is narrow enough to add water to the test tubes I'm using for propagation. And, it's so pretty that I just leave it out as an item of décor." —Jenny Hughes, editor, The Spruce

Tempaper Removable Peel and Stick Wallpaper in Peacock Blue & Metallic Gold Peonies

Removable Peel and Stick Wallpaper in Peacock Blue & Metallic Gold Peonies

"I wanted to make my home office into more of a creative space, but I didn't want to invest in new furniture. Instead, I picked up a roll of this temporary wallpaper and spent an afternoon using it to cover the wooden top and drawer fronts of my desk. Now, sitting down at my desk makes me so happy, and I'm already planning a few other creative uses for the rest of the roll that's still unused." —Kate Geraghty, editorial director, commerce

Lauren Ralph Lauren Oriental Light Gray/Rust Area Rug

Oriental Light Gray/Rust Area Rug

"I picked up this low pile rug to help carve out a dining nook in the area between my kitchen and living room. The pile is super low and almost velvety, which makes it easy to keep clean and doesn't get in the way of sliding your chair in and out when you sit down to eat." —Kate Geraghty, editorial director, commerce

Nest Easy Breather Pillow

Easy Breather Pillow - Nest

"I'm a hot sleeper and side sleeper, so my ideal pillow is supportive, breathable, and on the thicker side. The popular Easy Breather Pillow from Nest Bedding is my favorite—it arrives overstuffed so you can control how much fluff you get, and it's made from shredded memory foam for a comfy and cooling feel. After waking up every day on vacation with a sore neck, I was pretty excited to reunite with my pillow—and promptly bought another one!" —Nicole Lund, commerce editor

Heath Ceramics Bud Vase

Bud Vase

"I got three of these vases as a birthday gift and am loving the way they look in my bedroom. I filled each with dried flowers and put them on my nightstand but they'd even work if I want to separate the set throughout my apartment." —Jamie Weissman, associate commerce editor
