Ah, that wedding Pinterest board you've kept hidden for years is finally coming to fruition and you're getting married. Congrats! Now, instead of pinning more dream rings to a social media board, you've upped your game to actually saving items to your wedding registry (pinning can remain a side hustle, of course.) READ MORE.
Never in my wildest dreams will I own a home in New York City before I'm 30 years old, let alone many homes across the country. I know, I know, "put positive energy out there so it will manifest itself," *blah blah blah* but come on...I'm just being realistic. When you're Taylor Swift, though, you can own just about as many homes as you wish—and wherever you want. READ MORE.
There's something about a little kid's imagination that is inspiring for a designer. Their creativity and innate curiosity is used by designers to constantly test the limits and find new ideas. Playrooms, for one, are particularly fun to decorate because you can revert back to an age where nothing was too extra and everything was just enough. READ MORE.
Calling a light fixture "iconic" might seem a bit excessive, but when talking about a coveted Tiffany lamp, it's really the only adjective that makes sense. Especially since the most expensive one to be offered at auction in 20 years just sold for $3,372,500. Yes, there are, in fact, TWO commas in that price tag. READ MORE.
Around this time of year we hear endless discussion about holiday traditions. Less frequently, though, do we talk about the fact that not everyone has them—and it's totally normal. When I chatted with HomeGoods' partner Vanessa Lachey about which traditions she and her husband Nick would pass down to their children, she reminded me of this—it's even a topic she says she might write a book about one day.

♫ It's everything you ever want, it's everything you ever need, and it's right here in front of you ♫ OK, OK...If you have no idea what I'm talking about, prepare to have your mind blown by easily this season's greatest holiday light show. Literally. READ MORE.
The thought of traveling around New York City by myself still makes me anxious and I've had six years to get used to it. So, imagining myself getting around when I was Kevin McCallister's age...about 10-years-old, is actually incredibly nerve-racking. One thing's for sure, though, despite his age the Home Alone 2: Lost In New York star certainly knows how to pick some of the most recognizable tourist attractions NYC has to offer, including but thankfully not limited to, LaGuardia Airport.

If we turned back the hands of time to Waco, Texas, circa 2003—a solid 10 years before Chip and Joanna Gaines's hit television show breathed new life into the "unlikely tourist town"—you'd fall in love with Joanna Gaines's first Magnolia Market, AKA the "Little Shop on Bosque." READ MORE.
There are exactly two weeks until Christmas Day, so Jennifer Lopez's festive Instagram posts of herself, beau Alex Rodriguez, and their combined children—Maximilian, Emme, Ella, and Natasha—decorating a gorgeous (and insanely tall) Christmas tree come at the perfect time to make your season bright.

Though Lena Dunham has become quite a controversial figure over the last few years, there's one thing I can say for sure: her Brooklyn apartment is my NYC dream home. Lucky for me it is officially on the market, listed by Terry Naini of Brown Harris Stevens, but not so lucky for me? It's listed at $3 million. READ MORE.
When it comes to home decor, there is no one-size-fits-all. This is particularly true for holiday decorations, which get arguably more and more creative every year with new trends and ideas popping up every day. READ MORE.
Part of the beauty of winter is being able to cozy up in your pajamas on the weekend, sip peppermint tea or hot cocoa, and never get out from under your chunky knit blanket. Some may even take it a step further with the help of a fire to set the mood—a little hygge tip I always recommend. Whether you use a Yule log video, some LED flames, or a good ol' fashion log, anyone can enjoy the crackle of the season these days, with or without a fireplace. READ MORE.
If ever there was a celebrity home sale I would sell my soul for, it would absolutely be Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent's Los Angeles mansion, which just hit the market for $13.795 million, listed by Brent Watson of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury. Not just because of its rich history, but because everywhere you turn the interior design couple transformed the home into a work of art, not missing any detail—from enviable ceiling details and gorgeous archways.

Figuring out exactly what needs to go into your design can sometimes feel like a lot of work. But when it comes down to it, there are really only a handful of things you should consider no matter what your interior design style may be—especially since design "rules" are so overrated. In all scenarios, think layers! If for no other reason, do it because Jonathan Adler wants you to. READ MORE.

Not everyone has the same taste in Christmas decorations. Some prefer to go all out like on The Great Christmas Light Fight, while others prefer a more subtle, natural, or even edible approach. For Carter Oosterhouse and actress Amy Smart, it's all of the latter, since they're not quite at the Just Friends holiday decor level yet (e-x-t-r-a), Amy shares. "We're way more subtle," she laughs.
