House Guest
Wayfair introduces HomeMint at Wayfair—a collection of décor and furnishings designed and curated by Justin Timberlake and Estee Stanley. I’m a purveyor of lived-in, casual home living. Justin and I like to call it “homeyness” and it’s my golden rule when it comes to designing each of my clients’ homes. Each one is unique and exudes their unique personal style—all while steering VERY clear of that cookie-cutter, catalog mentality. While we were creating the HomeMint...

Hi, I’m Catie Parrish, Wayfair’s Associate Editor. Last time I did a blog post, I wrote about food (Memorial Day food, to be exact). And surprise, surprise, I’m back to talk about food again. Photo Credit: CozyPad One morning a couple weeks ago, my husband Chris discovered (to both our horror) that our fridge had stopped working. In retrospect, it was only a matter of time. Although our kitchen has lots of cabinet and counter...

White On White: How To Solve This Color Scheme Challenge
White On White: How To Solve This Color Scheme Challenge
Kate Smith
White works with everything. White is the perfect go-to neutral. What could be easier than decorating with all white? It sounds easy but the challenge is that to create a well-designed room, you need several different elements and by going all white you've just eliminated two biggies—color and color contrast! This means that you need to create contrast, draw attention, and add interest in other ways. It isn't difficult when you know what you need to...

A couple of months ago, I shared my ideas for snapping up the perfect shower gifts for the special brides-to-be in your lives. What I neglected to share is that we, too, are planning to register for our own wedding within the next couple of weeks! Registering is one of the most exciting parts of the planning process (if you ask me!) The part that often goes unmentioned is that it can also be...

Wayfair Builds with Habitat for Humanity
House Guest
Anybody who knows me knows that—as Carrie Bradshaw once said—shopping is my cardio. I’m never the first one to get my hands dirty. But when Wayfair sent out an email asking for volunteers to be part of a Habitat for Humanity build, I jumped at the chance. Fifteen coworkers and I arrived at the house in the middle of the day, right smack in the middle of a historic heat wave. But that didn’t faze...

This time of year, as I stroll through the abundant farmers markets, I find myself continually drawn to the plumpest and sweetest berries of the season. To me, these gorgeous gems are the hallmarks of summer. There’s nothing more satisfying than a handful of fresh blueberries, picked at their peak, freshly rinsed, and sweeter than any gummy bear you could imagine. I truly believe that if fruit were this wonderful all the time, then we...
