Call us crazy, but now that we’re officially in the second half of August, a small part of us is counting down to fall. While we’re not ready to give up the farmers’ markets and al fresco dining just yet, there’s something about a new season that always feels like a fresh start.
Of course, this fall won’t feel “normal” in many ways, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look for moments of joy and normalcy in the little things. This month, we’re sharing all those little things that helped maintain our sense of calm amidst the chaos with favorites for your home, wardrobe, bookshelf, and more.

We finally got around to swapping out all our light switch covers to this screwless version, and I’m telling you, it has made a whole world of difference. I’m always amazed at how small tweaks can leave such an impact, and it just goes to show that design is in the details.
Since our big Guest Bathroom Reveal, I’ve received TONS of questions about where I source my vintage art. The secret? This incredible Etsy dealer who’s based in Sweden.

While kids’ desks are sold out pretty much everywhere, we love her hack using Ikea Stuva benches as a clever workaround. Pair that desk set-up with this map or this craft table for the littlest learners, and you’ve for a well-designed space to use all year long.
Trips to the spa might be out for the foreseeable future, but this exfoliating mask is helping us get the spa vibes at home. It leaves skin feeling totally refreshed, and has become a staple in our weekly routine. Plus, if you’re looking to spend your dollars with Black female-owned businesses, we can’t recommend this beauty brand enough.
Every work from home wardrobe needs a pretty pair of sneakers, and these sherbet colored kicks top the list.
