A D Home Editor’s Homebody Must-Haves

{{ oneIndex }} / {{ images.length }}


Amazing how much can change in a few months, isn’t it?

While it’s easy to complain about stir-craziness setting in or the constant barrage of Zoom meeting invites, the truth is, I’m among the fortunate ones to have a WFH-friendly (and fulfilling) job, unlimited time with my loved ones, and a safe space in which to hunker down.

This period has given all of us a fresh perspective about what really matters, and maybe some time to knock out a long-overdue around-the-house project or two.

Being a bit of a homebody, I mostly haven’t minded sheltering in place (though I miss my daily Starbucks runs). But, the products you see here have made passing the time a little more comfortable and a lot more stylish.

To me, striking that balance is a big part of finding your happy place at home—even as you don the same pair of sweatpants for the third day in a row. (No judgment!)

One quarantine addition that isn’t shown above is Gary, a runt duck my husband adopted that, despite my initial protests, has brought so much joy into our home with every charming waddle. You can follow his adventures at @garyandlarryshow—maybe he’ll bring a smile to you, too.
