For most people, it’s the place where you stash that box of who-knows-what that you never managed to unpack, even though you moved in 10 years ago.  Or it doubles as your office, a neglected workout room, or some combination of both. But when friends and family come to stay, you want to put your best foot forward. So, ahead of summer travel season, we’ve put together ten tips for creating the ultimate guest room.

From shabby chic shacks to modern bohemian abodes, these coastal-inspired works of art will have every kind of vacation space dressed for a stylish summer.

So we’ve got tips, tricks, and products to create rooms that would make your arts and crafts counselor proud. 1. Use camping supplies as decor: Canoe paddles, travel pennants, and painted arrows — these are just a few

Father’s Day is coming. We’re giving you fair warning so that, for once, you don’t resort to the ol’ here’s-a-tie trick. This year, we dare you to go a little more sentimental. Ahead of Father’s Day, we teamed up with custom framing and delivery site Framebridge to gift one deserving Dad a special surprise. Shaun Foos met now-wife Rachel on a blind date at a dive bar, but decided to take things up several notches, proposing in a helicopter over Los Angeles.

Say goodbye to parkas and hello to summer. Memorial Day weekend has arrived to usher in a season of sunshine, sandals, rooftop drinks, and lazy beach days. But the best thing about summer holidays are the places we celebrate them and the meals we celebrate them with.Whether you’re glamping in a state park or tossing back cocktails in your own backyard, chances are you’ll be indulging in barbecue, burgers and desserts of the fruity or frozen variety. In honor of one of our favorite eating holidays, we’ve matched up six great recipes

It’s finally happening!  Summer is coming. As we bid a gleeful farewell to parkas and slush and gloom, we’re getting seriously amped up for warm weather, beach days and, most importantly, vacation. Whether your summer break means cookouts and cold beers on the Jersey Shore, white parties and champagne in the Hamptons or ‘smores over the fire in Yellowstone, there’s a charm to classic US vacation towns that holds a special place in our heart.

Every year as the sun starts to shine, spring fever sets in. Symptoms include: a desire to dine outside for every meal, an inability to drink anything but rosé, and the desire to fill every available surface with fresh flowers. But not all bouquets are created equal. So we teamed up with online flower retailer The Bouqs to design different arrangements to match different décor styles.

As part of our collaboration with online flower retailer, The Bouqs, Leura designed eight lush arrangements to brighten up your home for spring. But these aren’t your average grocery store blooms. The Bouqs grows their flowers on eco-friendly US farms or on the

There truly is no place like home for the holidays, but sharing your childhood bedroom with four other people may not be the homey comfort you bargained for.

So, if you’ve opted to skip the poor sleep and make your holiday home a hotel room, there are small ways to turn even the most generic

Ah, the holidays. Nothing quite compares to the infectious, jovial spirit that the season brings. The streets are lit with glowing lights, hot cocoa becomes an appropriate daily drink, and best of all, the holidays present a chance to share our homes with the ones we love. However, whether you’re hosting your best friends from out of town or your in-laws, preparing your home for overnight visitors can add stress to your holiday cheer.  Before you start panicking about where guests will sleep or how to make your space feel comfortable and welcoming,
