When I was a kid, household appliances were not designed to also be cute, just because they were meant to be used by children. Specifically, I recall a humidifier that we had to have in the bedroom I shared with my brother when we were probably 3 and 4 years old respectively, because he suffered from asthma. That thing looked like a spacecraft from War of The Worlds — and while it might have relievedmy brother’s breathing difficulties, it was pure nightmare-fuel for me.
If only Crane humidifiers had existed in the sixties, my parent’s might have been inclined to purchase a model from their Adorableline — featuring, well, adorable animal-shaped, multi-function humidifiers — thus sparing my tender psyche from an enduring trauma. Because, seriously, how darn cute is a little pink Unicorn?
If there’s one thing we got better at during the pandemic, it’s coming up with creative ways to have fun without leaving the house.

If family movie night has become one of your new traditions, you know that having fresh popcorn and tasty snacks on hand is an absolute necessity.
To get an authentic “Movie Popcorn” experience at home, check out this cleverly-designed Movie Night Popcorn Gift Box set from Catamount by Prepara, which lets you make an irresistibly delicious batch of fresh popcorn in right in the microwave. No fuss, no muss!

But who wants to take a time out to break out the blender when you’re in the middle of relaxing at home? I will take a hard pass on that.
If you are anything like me, framed favorite artwork and photos are not only a huge part of your home decor, they’re also an important part of how you rock your personal style. I love a nice frame so much, I often pick up one that catches my eye even before I have something in mind to go inside it. Maybe you never considered that a picture frame manufacturer could be a force in the campaign to sustain our planet, but at a recent IHA Press Event, I was introduced to a collection of gorgeous and innovative modern framing solutions from Vista Frame Company which are all created from one of our most notoriously non-biodegradable, manmade materials: Polystyrene (aka Styrofoam). Unbelievable, but true! Continue reading Eye On Design: Vista Picture Frames Made From Recycled Styrofoam!→
