Fable The Oval Serving Platter

Fable The Oval Serving Platter


"One of my favorite household items is my Fable serving platter—I have the round and the oval is currently en route to me. They're super versatile platters that I use all the time! They're amazing for serving a main dish or appetizers, they're the perfect size for a medium-sized charcuterie plate, and I also use mine as a catch-all for liquor bottles on our bar cabinet." — Debbie Mackenzie, Instagrammer @gingerdeb.house

CB2 Celia White Vase

"My number one household item is the Celia vase from CB2. Not only is it a functional item, but it’s a gorgeous statement piece for any area of the home! The pleated detail adds great texture to your room, and the $19.95 price tag makes it the perfect decor item for any home!" — Erika Ver, Instagrammer @peonyandhoney

GenSwin Flameless Ivory Taper Candles

GenSwin Ivory Taper Candles


"I'm really loving these battery-operated candles—I got some for Christmas, but I found I leave some up year-round. They are wax coated and they flicker so they look really real, and I have them on a timer so every night they come on and add such a cozy glow. I can put these in places it would be unsafe or inconvenient to have a real candle and they are great if you are worried about kids or pets knocking them over." — Erin Zubot, Instagrammer @erinzubotdesign

Fable The Mugs

The Mugs


"I'm obsessed with these mugs from Fable. I love them because they feel like a special mug, not just one in a dinner set. They have a giant handle and a good weight to them. I have the blush color and it's just stunning." — Jessie Ruane, Instagrammer @jessiefinds

Woodwick Trilogy Candle



"Everyone loves a good candle, whether that be to snuggle up in the winter or to spread a nice aroma around your home for spring cleaning. However, finding one with a strong, but pleasant, scent while also being long-lasting can be a challenge to find. Thankfully, I stumbled across WoodWick Trilogy candles, which are one of the best in the business! They are very long-lasting and spread their scents around your home in record time. Out of all the candles I’ve used, I highly recommend these." — Brianna Hill of Over the Hill Designs

the Container Store

"I think when I bought this I was feeling like I needed a tidy intervention, inspired by binging The Home Edit one weekend, but the truth is, it's amazing! It's so much easier to find all your condiments, and we are a household that like options in that department! It's been way more useful than I imagined and satisfying to spin!" — Molly Machmer-Wessels of Woodland Design Company

"My favorite home accessory in a decor sense is an acrylic riser that can be used under any home accessory gadget, vase, ceramic piece on top of a coffee table, console table, vanity, nightstand, et cetera. It truly elevates the look of any home accessory, giving it an air of importance, sophistication, and added interest." — Jodi Janzen of Jodi Janzen Design

GE Vintage Style 60-Watt LED Amber Glass Light Bulb



"My biggest goal with my apartment is to make it feel cozy! Changing out all my lightbulbs with these vintage-style amber glass bulbs gives my apartment a warm glow—it's like golden hour without the sun! These are perfect for those of us who live in low-light apartments and have to keep lamps on throughout the day. It lights the apartment without the harsh white light! " — Imani Keal, Instagrammer @imaniathome
