Ashley’s 1800s carriage house in the West Village is as steeped in history as it is style; photographer Diane Arbus and her two daughters were once residents. Now, Ashley—the Executive Vice President of Sales & Brand Partnerships at Refinery 29—and her husband Sam (college sweethearts from Ole Miss!) share the space with their two daughters, Mylah (six years old) and Holland (18 months old). “We discovered our beloved carriage house four years ago while strolling through the village… [w]e were first drawn to the carriage house for its charming personality and privacy away from everyday city life.”

10 of Our Favorite Lamps to Shop on Prime Day

In the immortal words of Brick Tamland from Anchorman, “I love lamp.” I just don’t always love the price tags that accompany most of the lamps I fall for. Luckily, Amazon Prime Day is finally upon us, and with it comes deep discounts on high-style lamps from some of our favorite Amazon home brands: Rivet and Stone & Beam.

Starting July 16 at 3 p.m. EST, Amazon is offering up to 30 percent off furniture and decor site-wide, including these lamps. The “Spotlight Deals” last for 24 hours, so if something catches your eye, you’ll need to act quickly.

Prime Day 2018: The Best Home Deals From Amazon’s Big Day

Amazon Prime Day 2018 is here! Image: Amazon

It’s here! Prime Day is basically Christmas for online shoppers who live for two-day shipping. It starts today at 3 p.m. ET, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait to get in on some great deals. Amazon is already rolling out discounts and stocking its digital shelves with a huge range of products.

What is Prime Day?

If you haven’t already heard, Prime Day is a big deal in the online shopping world. It’s the biggest sale of the year for Amazon, arguably the top player in e-commerce. It offers Black Friday-esque deals on a huge range of products. Essentially, if you were planning on buying something from Amazon, now’s the time. Prime Day continues through tomorrow, July 17. It’s 36 hours of sweet deals from the store that sells just about everything.

Keep in mind that not all Prime Day deals roll out at once. Some will be available right at the 3 p.m. ET kickoff today, while others require more patience. Under upcoming Prime Day items, you’ll see a button that says, “Watch This Deal!” Click it and Amazon will keep you updated on the pricing.

What should I buy on Prime Day?

The short answer is: just about anything. Prime Day includes discounts on nearly all of Amazon’s product categories. Major highlights come from Amazon’s own product line (think the Echo Dot or Kindle Paperwhite). The savings don’t stop with tech, though. If you’ve been looking to freshen up your home this summer, Prime Day is a prime opportunity to do exactly that. Amazon is already rolling out some great deals and exciting previews. Let’s take a look.

Home furnishings

If you’ve historically shied away from buying furniture on Amazon, it’s time to warm up to the idea. The e-tail giant has a pretty impressive selection of home furnishings. And that selection gets even bigger with Prime Day 2018, thanks to a rollout of new products from its Rivet line and major discounts on furniture and decor from Amazon’s in-house lines.

If you’ve been looking for an accent chair to spice up your living room, its new Revolve Modern Accent Chair is a sleek piece that’s already 10 percent off for Prime members. You can grab the chair today for $225.

Hunting for a high-impact piece to take your bedroom to the next level while saving a pretty penny? The Stone & Beam Ainsley Geometric Queen Bed is a whopping 32 percent off right now. Not impressed by the discount? You should be – when it brings the price for this bed to just $169.

Or maybe you’ve been looking for just the right furnishing to tie your living space together, blending functionality with modern form. Look no further than the Rivet Allyson Coffee Table. You can grab it for $143 today – that’s a handsome 28 percent discount.

Bed and bath

You don’t have to make room for new furniture to use Prime Day as an opportunity to freshen up your space. Rivet’s new products include a range of attractive, versatile throw pillows that can help you transform your bed or sofa. Whether you’re looking for a luxe, mod or boho vibe, these pillows have you covered. Pricing ranges from $35 to $45.

If you’re looking for a similarly affordable but higher impact way to upgrade your bed, look no further than this $35 Hypoallergenic Microfiber King Duvet Cover. Its Prime Day deal starts at 3:40 p.m. ET. Want something a little more eye-catching? Check out these fun patterns in the cotton PinkMemory Duvet Cover. Most patterns in King are currently $75, but this duvet cover is also part of Prime Day. You can look for its deal to roll out at 4:05 p.m. ET.

Decor

Prime Day is the perfect opportunity to add decorative pieces to your home that give it a fresh feel without emptying your wallet. For example, if you have a chair or bench that you’ve fallen out of love with, grab this Carvapet Luxury Soft Faux Sheepskin Chair Cover. It comes in a wide range of colors, all for under $20 with additional Prime Deals coming at 5 p.m. ET.

Want to elevate your wall decor? Grab some of these MELANNCO Floating Wood Shelves. They’re available in black or white for under $18, with additional Prime Day savings at 3:10 p.m. ET.

If you’re looking for decor that blends beauty and utility, you may want to grab the Mydethun Moon Lamp Moon Light. This 3D printed lamp brings ethereal, lunar vibes to your space for just $17, with an additional deal starting right with the kickoff of Prime Day at 3 p.m. ET.

Home tech

If you haven’t already brought artificial intelligence into your home, today’s the day. The Echo Dot is selling for just $30. It’s a tiny price to pay for a gadget that packs a powerful punch. You’ll be amazed at how often you find yourself talking with Alexa for things like tomorrow’s weather, the latest news, recipe conversions and more.

The Coleman RoadTrip portable grill is another Prime Day product launch that helps you capitalize on summer. It’s an easy way to add grilling capabilities to even the smallest patio – or your nearby park. Plus, it’s $227 today, even before Prime Day starts.

Like Black Friday, Prime Day could be the perfect opportunity to grab that pricey item you’ve been eyeing. Stop wrestling with your old blender! Grab the Vitamix E310 Explorian blender, another Prime Day launch for $350.

How to get in on Prime Day

Prime Day is aptly named because – you guessed it! – it’s for people with Amazon Prime. If you don’t have a Prime account, you may still be able to swing some discounts. If you’ve never signed up for a Prime account before, you can start a 30-day trial for free. There’s no better time to get yourself that $0 Prime membership than right now, when you’ll be perfectly poised to score during the upcoming sale.

Which Prime Day deals are you hoping to find? Are there any pieces for your home that you’ve been waiting until today to buy? Do you have any tips for making the most of this major sale? Let us know in the comments! We’d love to hear how you’re getting involved in Prime Day. And if you come across any great deals on items for the home, feel free to share them below. We want all Freshome readers to score big during Prime Day 2018!

5 Insider Tips for Buying Vintage Home Goods

While we like shiny, new objects as much as the next design lover, we also have a soft spot for all things vintage. Mixing the old with new—be it a sofa from the sixties, art deco drinkware, or linens from the 19th century—can add a cool, one-of-a-kind flair to your home.

“Designers love to mix vintage and modern decor, as more and more people are focused on sustainability and shifting their shopping habits to include consignment goods,” says Elizabeth Brown, CEO of luxury consignment marketplace Viyet.

But that doesn’t mean vintage shopping is easy. Truth is, it’s far from it. Not only do you have to find a reputable vintage store or website, you have to comb through hundreds (if not, thousands) of pieces to determine whether that 1940’s armoire is worth its high price tag.

Brown knows a thing or two about finding great vintage pieces at justifiable prices, and she’s sharing her insider tips here:
