Published on May 18, 2020

It’s looking more and more like we’re going to be spending the summer in isolation, or at least not out with our friends into the early hours. If you’re going to be spending more time at home, you may as well make your home into your dream space. It’s now or never, right? Here are some home products to make your isolation a little happier, or at least some ideas for how to make your living space a little prettier.
