Yes, Small can be Beautiful!
Whether you seek design inspiration for small spaces by choice (they’re cozy! easier to clean! organized and minimalist rooms are appealing!) or necessity (there’s a cost to living large!), we’ve gathered ten of our favorite ideas to make the small space one you won’t want to leave.
Mattress Size - Getting it Right
While other home purchases get more attention due to their flashier nature (new leather sofa, anyone?), mattresses deserve a share of our research and investment considering their impact on our quality of life.

But for those who want to sink into something soft and warm with the “broken-in” feeling we crave at the end of a long day, many believe that nothing beats an upholstered sofa.If you find yourself on “Team Textile,” you’ll want to keep your favorite perch in good condition and looking its best. Fortunately, the job is simple if you are mindful of these seven steps:

While we no longer rely on its life-sustaining role for survival - staying warm and cooking food - the appeal of vibrant flames and glowing embers is deeply entrenched in our psyches. Today’s busy lifestyles make it harder to indulge in this most primal of cravings, which is where the appeal of electric fireplaces comes in.
