LIFE HACK:

Chairish App

WHAT:

The easiest way to buy and sell vintage furniture!

Why I love it:

I'm always on the hunt for furniture with a story and love to mix old and new. Chairish has always been one of my go-to sites for finding furniture and home decor pieces, and the app makes doing it all on the go easy!

LIFE HACK:

Framebridge

WHAT:

An app and online framing service that streamlines the entire custom framing process.

Why I love it:

Whether you want to frame a recent Instagram photo, a photo print, an art canvas or even a sports jersey, Frambridge can do it. Upload your image (or mail in your physical photo or art piece) and select from over two dozen frame options. Every frame is custom made and shipped directly to you. The app even has a "Preview on Wall" option that lets you see how a frame will look on your own wall. It turns framing into a little bit of an addiction!

LIFE HACK:

House Pad


WHAT:

House Pad allows you to keep everything you need to manage & run your house in one place. There are to-do lists, emergency contacts, ways to order supplies, & it also documents how you like things kept and organized in your house. It was launched last year by the founder of 1stdibs. It's a great tool & especially handy for anyone like me with OCD!

Why I love it:

I've always fantasized about having a Downton Abbey style butler at home to keep everything in tip top shape. Someone who could be the repository for all the information about running a house. I'm not sure that's in my future. This is the next best thing!

LIFE HACK:

Fiber-Seal Stain Treatment


WHAT:

Fiber-Seal Fabric Care System specializes in expert protection, cleaning and service of carpet, upholstery, furniture, drapery, rugs & more! All items treated with Fiber-Seal include 18 months of free on-site care, which means that they will come as many times as you need them to treat even the smallest stains!

Why I love it:

As a designer I always want all of my projects to look as perfect as possible for as long as possible, but as the mother of two small children & two crazy dogs, I know we need all the help we can get! Fiber-Seal helps give me & my clients peace of mind that they are free to enjoy their homes, & let someone else worry about life's little accidents.
