Five Fave: Online Shops for Home Goods

These are my top five favorite websites for finding creative, fun ways to spruce up the place:

  • – Fab features great deals from fabulous designers. You can find a bargain on just about anything – from clothing to pet accessories – but I love browsing their home goods section the most, naturally.
  • – Gilt offers major discounts on designer labels to its members. Just one catch though: great deals go fast. If there’s something you have in mind, you have to log in early or you could be out of luck.
  • – I’m always surprised when I meet someone who’s never heard of Etsy. This is a great place to support small businesses while finding the exact thing you never knew you needed. Also, it eliminates the thing I hate about antique stores and resale shops: rummaging. Hello, Vintage English Deckchair!
  • – Like Gilt and Fab, One Kings Lane offers deep discounts gorgeous home goods. You can probably find bowls like these at Anthropologie for quadruple the price.
  • – Ballard Designs is more understated than other home goods websites I listed, but I still come across great pieces here. The lotus garden seat would really dress up my balcony. And I just can’t get enough jute lately.

Add a Splash of Color With Seafoam Green

Seafoam Green is the color of summer. It’s combing the sand for seaglass, saltwater air, magazines by the pool, beachy fun. Not only does it go well with neutrals, it can hold its own against bold strawberry red and gold. Either way, a little pop of green goes a long way and can be easily incorporated into any room.
